Since Dave's death, I've had this feeling, or sensation that comes over me at night while lying in my bed. I feel this strange sensation that starts in my throat and travels down to my chest. It's not painful, just a sensation like I've never felt before.
It usually will disturb or interupt my sleep. So, much that I will lie awake for a while or hours thinking......about whatever comes to mind....which usually includes thoughts or memories of Dave.
It came again tonight and I decided to acknowledge the sensation/feeling before I let it take my mind to places.
I need to understand it in some way. Name it, label it, so I would not allow it to control me and my mind and emotions, but learn how to control it, in the way I think about my grief, about him, about the memories, about how to use this to move toward healing.
I hope acknowledging this will help me to identify other signs of my grief and understand how I can use these signs to heal properly and wholely eventually.
Do you have a certain feeling or sensation that you may have never felt before this grief?
