"Thanks NoLonger. I know I need to go back to my psychologist. I called and she no longer is with the clinic. I started looking for others and was not having much luck. Then yesterday I got a letter saying she had opened her own practice. Like a…"
"I'm doing good, I guess. But I wonder if I have just put away my wifes ALS and death in May 2015 to some far reach of my mind. I can hardly remember a lot of times when I was caring for her 2 years before her death. Mainly I feel guilty I…"

"Suzy B, your story and mine seem very similar. Trying to live my life now. I went looking at smaller houses yesterday. I had a Mass for Van Saturday night and that brought back some grief. I can look at pictures now and remember the good times but…"
"Well it's that time of year again. Van passed away on May 15th, 2015. I started getting real depressed about a couple of weeks ago. I don't want to do anything, I'm overeating, I guess to stuff my feelings? I dreamed about her the…"
"Without you’re right. Guilt is a bitch. But I think we tend to beat up ourselves far more than we may deserve. Thanks for reminding me that we do the best we can at the time. The anti depressants do help as far as giving you more focus and…"
"Without, it sounds like you are suffering from depression. Very common in grieving people. I have been taking Antidepressants for about a year and a half. My wife passed in May 15th 2015 and therapy and the medication made things better. It will not…"
"Hi all. I haven't been here in a while and after reading the last 3 posts thought I would chime in.
Evolving, we never get over it, we move forward. My daughter reminded me of that about a year and a half after my wife died. Nieta put it…"
