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.

Sandralee,We all go through the motions.It's the joy I miss,the reason to live!No one to share everyday occurrences with.Will the Joy ever return??I don't know.I doubt it.I guess that's why Linda and I go around talking to them anyway.It will be 9 months on the 13th of June.Life as we knew it is gone.

It has been three weeks now since Joel passed away from complications due to lung cancer. It might as well be a hundred years because that is what it feels like. Nothing is the same since he left. I don't do much--just sit here and go through the motions of living. There just isn't much to look forward to except one large heartache that doesn't ever go away. Everybody tells me that life goes on and things will get better. Right now I find that so hard to believe. I am very glad that I found this site. It helps to share my feelings with folks who are going through the same thing even though I cannot hear them I can read their messages and relate to each and every one. I welcome anyone who might want to talk to me and will try my best to be supportive but most of all a friend. Sandralee

Linda,When Ernie would put his socks on in the morning,he would first take the sock and rub it on the dogs nose (like when you shine shoes).Well,The dog will not let you put socks on now!You have to do it in private unless you're up to a 5 min thing with the dog and socks!!LOL

A cry baby zombie, that's a good description of me.

After reading my comment back I also noticed I can't spell.

My birain is not functioning well either. I went all over the house yesterday looking for the car keys I was clutching in my hand. I have to really concentrate on paying bills and doing other routine tasks. Also every thing takes tremendous effort. When I finish something I am exhausted. It consumes mountains of energy just to focus. Yesterday it had been four months and it was an extremely griefy day.

Tom, I cant answer you as to when does your mind start functioning again. I'm a zombie too. Thirteen months plus and still not functioning properly. Life sure is differant now. Hang in there.

"Linda,Oh thank God,I'm not the only one!!I've been doing that too.If anyone else heard me they'd think I was nuts.Maybe we're finally on a good plain.Acceptance!"
kathleen, our dog gets a confused look on his face and looks around for the person I'm, talking too. I have to be careful not to say the word "daddy" in front of him because he goes looking for Bo.
