    How Are You Today?

    I'm feeling sad and crying once an hour. Last week I was mad at the world. I lost my sweetheart May 2nd and it seem like I'm feeling worse as the weeks fly by!

    How Are You Today?

    I'm feeling pretty crappy and like I'm in a sea of isolation and rage.

    Breathe

    Remember to breathe and take one moment at a time.
  9. I know what it feels like to have to go down this road. None of us want to be here but it is something we must do. It sometimes is hard to remember to take care of yourself while you deal with all of the emotions that have taken over your life. THE LITTLE THINGS When you have lost someone you love it turns your world upside down and you suddenly forget to take care of anything and everything. I remember I did not care if I ate or slept or cleaned my home or took a bath. Nope, none of it mattered at that time at all. The only thing I wanted was for my husband to walk in the door and everything that was happening would just be a dream. Well I finally figured out it wasn't a dream and I had to take care of things including me. This is just my personal version of things I had to get in order to navigate this thing called Grief. 1. First and most important thing to remember is that grief has no rules and there is no set time for you to grieve. 2. People are going to say things that hurt you but most of the time it is because they don't really know what to say and as my husband told me many times "They can't help it cause they open their mouths and stupid just falls out". 3. Take time to eat even though you may not want it, take a hot bath or shower, turn on the tv for noise, if you have pets spend time with them. 4. Cry if you need to, scream if it makes you feel better, talk to them as if they are still sitting there. Do whatever you can to let out the hurt and pain because holding it in never seems to help. 5. Reach out for help when you can because having someone to listen can make a world of difference. I found this grief forum and it helped me to get thru those hard times. 6. If things get too unbearable please reach out for medical help. This is something that can bring the strongest of them to their knees, so asking for help is nothing to be ashamed of. The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline (1-800-273-TALK [8255]) 7. Tiny steps still move you forward, so one moment at a time is okay. Remember this journey thru grief is your own and what works for me might not work for you and that is okay. We are all traveling the same road just at different times, so you are not alone and there are others that understand that you are hurting and feel lost. I will say this to each of the ones that are just starting out, there is HOPE.
