 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!

father god* i pray for Diane and all others who are in pain, I know pain and have asked GOD* for healing for yrs, it never came. so my husband said why not ask GOD* to be with you in the pain and help you through it, and cross my heart when my leg swells or I get to ralphing I ask G0d and his angels to help me and it works! So I am praying GOD* will heal all who are in pain, if he does not, at least ask him to stand with you in it>lv too all

Diane ...  Cell phones don't work if there is a power outage.  Landlines do so that is why I keep mine, but I found Telus Phone Company and got a better rate so you might try that.



Comment by Marsha H on December 29, 2012 at 3:42am

Diane C ... I have experienced different things happening when paying bills and don't owe anything, yet was getting charged from one company and I had a good go at them.  I thnk landlines are important and I'd rather give something else up and keep it because of an emergency.  I understand those bad days of nothing working out.  Hang in there girl as it will get better.

Stacey ... I'm getting excited about your big move and getting your apartment keys in 4 days and I'm not even there!  LOL  You deserve the breaks hon.  It's too bad your mom wasn't staying with you longer to help you out.  Perhaps a friend or friends could help you move.  Perhaps a girlfriend could look after your wee boy while you pack.  I am happy to hear that you got a bigger Christmas tree too.  I just love mine, but had to pay full price and you're luck to get one for 1/2 price off.  Don't forget the dog!  LOL  Don't forget to get those plugs for the wall outlets for you little guy.

Please keep me informed as to how things are going. 



Comment by Marsha H on December 29, 2012 at 3:33am

Diane C ....  So glad that you got a kick out of Dixie's and my stories.  You can bet anyone with pets will have stepped in dog poo.  Laughter is the best medicine at times. 

Hope you are feeling a little better Diane.  It's time we all got a break and I do hope 2013 will be a better one for us.
