Brenda you are right that no medicine can take the pain away.  My doctor said I didn't need anti-depressants because I'm not dealing with some generalized depression, but that I am dealing with reality and I have to work through it in my own time and in my own way.  I do have meds for anxiety, but I've had them for a long time, as I have Generalized Anxiety Disorder, which I've had for a couple of years.  I take one maybe 3 times a week, only when it gets unbearable. We will get through this, we will never "get over it", we can only learn to live with it. You are not going crazy.  Blessings to you and your kids.

I am so where you are right now in your life! My husband committed suicide 11 mths ago and i also have 3 boys ages 16, 4, and 1 1/2! i am so confused, scared, sad, lost without him , traumatized because I found him and completely heart broken! I dont know how I am going to do this, but I can tell you everyday is hell for me! With my kids their are so many "first times", I am going crazy! yes i get help I see a therapist and a nurse but no medicine in this world can take away the pain my whole body feels! My brain is so tired of all the emotions i go through every day! you are not alone!

you are not alone god is always with you, i know the feeling of losing someone you love you shared your life with. i lost my husband unexpectly 2 weeks ago from a massive heart attack.


Ramona, I am so sorry about the loss of your husband and I am amazed that you have sent such a kind and encouraging message and thank you for that. Sometimes our grief and pain can make us forget God is carrying our burdens along with us.

God Bless
