This might be a rough time for many of you. Do what you feel you need to do to get through it. Remember, someone is here almost all the time to talk to you.

Thought everyone here could relate to this poem
Mary Jane you are going to do great and have so much fun, please let us know how your trip is going and you can always reach out to us if you get too stressed Debbie P
Mary Jane, Good for you for recognizing that you don't want to keep around these racing thoughts of possible misfortune. You'll conquer it. I'm sure of it.
Please don't be too concerned about not being able to have a cigarette once you are beyond security at the airport. Most airports have smoking lounges. You can also arrange for airline personnel to shuttle you to your next gate via a motorized cart. I don't know how this is arranged but have seen them whisking folks around in airports and wishing I was a passenger.
I'll look forward to your update about dates and locations in NC. Perhaps the stars will align and our visits will coincide. Debbie
Mary Jane, I love your post! You go friend!! When do you leave for the Outer Banks and how long will you visit? My settlement date is still up in the air but our visits might well coincide. Meanwhile, I am so proud of you! Debbie
Mary Jane Its so great that you are giving yourself encouragement to go on and live your life to the fullest, I know you are at a good place if you can do that.I understand going on vacation and the fear, I never felt that going but coming home is a different matter for me, it usually takes me a week to get with it again, Ive been on a few little weekend trips with family since my husband passed in May and have for the most part enjoyed it but when II would get home the emptiness would hit me double, but I am new to this and still in the hard grieving part so when I shove it aside it comes back double. I am reading a book byAlan Wolfelt "Understanding your Grief" it has a journal you can get too and I would encourage everyone on here to get it, its very helpful in all the areas that everyone has talked about. have a good day Debbie
