"Hi Tekwriter, I am so sorry for your loss.  My husband passed away July 17th after a brief (3 week) illness so I, too, am new to this "club". Our worlds have been turned upside down.  I am "only" 57...although I feel…"

May

I lost my husband on May 3rd. It has been so hard. I still do not like to go out and stay at home a lot more than I used too. I am always tired and I guess that is the depression. I got some extra medication for the first couple of weeks but then my Dr. stopped it. I felt like I really need some valium or something. I felt like I was coming apart at the seams and couldnt eat or sleep. It is better than that now, but I still cry almost every day. This is so awful.See More

"I am beginning to pack. I keep running across Gary's shirts and it is hard. I packed up His urn and Jack's box. I ended up crying most of the morning. I did not expect it to be so hard."

"There are no rules for what you should or shouldn't do. I sold my house within 8 months and bought a smaller one. Do what is financially right for you. If it feels right do it."

"Tekwriter, congratulations on finding a house you like.  All the advice to keep your home doesn't much matter when you just can't afford to keep it.  So glad your son is helping you.  "

"BTW, professional Packers can also be hired from a moving company. It's costly, but they can pack up an entire household in 1 day as was the case w/my 3000sqft home w/4 people. They even packed the trashcan full as well as insulated the freezer…"
