I wish I could get off this roller coaster,

I wish I could get off this ride. 

I wish I could get a refund.  

You will be just fine - they lied. 

Or maybe this is a merry-go-round,

At this point I’m just not sure. 

My fear is that it’s only begun,

And my existence is just a blur.

A hug from me to you.  I feel the same way..A roller coaster ride and groundhogs day over and over again..It's been 4 months since my hubby passed and I still cry every single day. I still feel disoriented mentally. The numbness is starting to wear off and this "new life" situation is scary as heck. I want my old life back...

You are not alone , many of us going through the same nightmare. Sending Love and Light your way. xo

Prayers for you Sis. Prayers of hope and encouragement and peace. Thank you for taking the time to comment. Most of the time I just write because it helps me through my day. I used to be very talkative in person. Now it’s hard to talk. It’s easier to write. Not sure why, but it’s therapy of sorts I guess.

It's almost like you were listening to my conversation with myself this morning. It was a year in March that I lost my husband, and instead of getting easier it has felt like I'm on this out of control roller-coaster. I never thought of a merry-go-round, just going around in circles. I was told "You are strong, you will be just fine", and it was a lie, but I know it was meant to help me feel better and most people don't know what to say. I have one friend that lost her husband 4 years ago and still grieving. She is upfront honest with me, and I cherish that. God Bless
