"I keep having dreams with cars, too. They are black with tinted windows. I can't see who's in them or who's driving. Strange."

"I had a difficult time today, too. I wonder if it's the change of season. I thought maybe I would just pretend he's still here because it's too difficult without him. Then I worried that it was delusional of me."

"Hi Booktime, It seems that if we can get out of the loop thinking, that we can notice life going on and then find something we like in that life. I was stuck for years, very depressed while my husband was sick, and then stuck in grief when he died.…"
