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.

Diane C...cell phones DO work during a power outage, of course you have to be able to charge them, which I do by using my car charger if the power is out long enough. Landlines which are corded do work during a power outage...cordless ones do not, which I found out the hard way...
Frank I am so sorry you are suffering so. As I am also. Not sure I will ever feel in my right mind again. Its been 6 months and my pain is worse. Maybe its because partly of the holiday season, I don't know. If I have come across as abrasive or whatever recently, I am sorry, that is not me. My feelings are so easily hurt and I don't know how I can live this new life with this new me. I have told my immediate family, kids & grands and one of Dons sons & wife who live just around the corner they can come over New Yrs Eve, play some card games, eat, have a drink, for those who do...trying to have some kind of normalcy, as that's what we had done for several years. But now I just don't think I can do it. I guess I can just go to bed.
Very well said Carol and Dixie!!! Thanks for the excellent words of wisdom...
Thanks for your thoughts. Words seem to have little meaning when you get into these dark moods but knowing that others care and share in your grief to some extent eases the pain. I just hope I can put my guilt and grief to rest for a while and try to get on with life.
People (friends and family) do not want to be around a person who is really grieving and I can't really blame them. I am uncomfortable expressing my grief to them and getting all the standard replies. At least the good people on this forum understand grieving.
Jerry is a regular on this site. Only, I don't think we have heard from him in a while. Please use your experience and try to help him if you can... He was there to welcome me when I joined. Thanks!!
I am worried about you... It's good to see you posting, and trying to help me, but at the same time, I worry about you coping. I hope that Dixie can help you with some of the issues that you have. Between her and the rest of the people on this site, I hope that you can get some answers and relief from your grief. This is the worse time of the year, I think, to be going through this. I really wish that we were all in the same neighborhood and could get together and take care of our issues together. I just want you to know that you are loved and thought of every day. We all pray for you and hope that things get better for you.
I am having some difficult nights and I have not been sleeping very much. Napping during the day. Dealing with the loss of my wife is extra stressful for I blame myself for not getting the prompt and proper medical care she needed. It has been 4 months yet it seems like it all happened yesterday and I can recall every mistake that was made which led to her unexpected death.
I certainly hope that everyone else on this forum is doing better than I am for this is no way to live. You did get through your grief and I hope this inspires everyone else. So many others seem to handle their grief easier and I often wonder why.
Hugs to all.
Thank you everyone for your prayers!! I really do appreciate all of the support I receive on here. I sure hope they help me. My next appt. with him isn't until January 16th. But, I am hoping I can call Monday and try to get an appt. sooner, now that I know I can not take the medication he prescribed.
It finally stopped snowing here this afternoon. It looks absolutely beautiful, but that is from the inside looking out. I took some pictures today of the trees and the creek behind my house, and of course some of the dog in the snow. She is really not too fond of it. I guess when your nether region is sitting in the snow, I wouldn't be to fond of it either... I have shoveled her an area to go to do her business and then I trampled down a couple little paths for her. She didn't really seem to care. I wish I could send her out back, which is fenced in, but I have raccoons living under the deck back there. They are twice the size of her, so I worry about her safety. It is better that I just take her out. Hope everyone is staying warm and safe.
Stacey .... I had a good laugh about you feeling like taping the baby and dog to the ceiling. I know moving is really a lot of work. Oh boy, lazy susan cabinet and a garbage disposal ... you are spoiled girl, but you deserve it!
Dixie ... Amen! Thanks for the prayer!
