It will be three weeks tomorrow that Chuck left this world. This morning it finally sunk in that I was just going to feel crappy and out of sorts and lonely... for a while and I might as well suck it up and get on with it. So today, I started out by journaling how I was feeling, asking for acceptance and courage and then I decided to get on with my day. I still want to howl with my loss- my daughter left me a post-it note on my mirror before she left for her home in CT that when I…


Good morning

Saw my doctor for some help, both with out-control panic attacks- a chronic problem that runs in my family- and FMLA paperwork for my school system.

Thanks to everyone who has replied to my first post. Yesterday was my first not bad day- I actually got some things taken care of and my grandson spent the night so I had to get up today to take him to pre-school. I feel alone in a big world and this community has helped me not feel so odd and out- of- the norm. Today is two weeks since I lost my love- I am keeping busy.
