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.

Hi all. I haven't posted in a while but I do come almost every day and read the posts on here. It helps a lot to see that I am not alone in this. Seems like I do ok for a little while, then it all comes crashing down. More so over the last few days. I am not sure why. It has been 3 months since my husband has passed and yes people drifted back to their own lives. Except my best friend who has always stood by me. People think I should be ok by now, they never mention him any more. And I feel like they wonder why I keep talking about him. Thank goodness for my best friend, she lives 2500 miles away but we talk every day. Don't know what I would do without her. This last few weeks though I find myself sinking. The crying, oh my, the heart wrenching, can't stop, can't breathe sobbing. Every day. I cannot think straight. I cannot even make a small decision any more. I have taken 2 of the anxiety pills the doctor gave me. They help to put my mind at rest somewhat and they make me sleep. But nothing I could take in the day time. I just wish I could go to sleep and wake up when this nightmare is over.
Very tough days coming up, tomorrow is rehearsal dinner & Saturday is the wedding, all preparations are horrendous without my love by my side, yesterday was 5 months since he passed and there hasn't been a day without tears, everyone, please keep me in your prayers the next few days so I can stay strong for my son, he has been planning this wedding for 2 years & I really don't want to ruin it with too much crying.
Thank you all.
Very quiet forum and I sincerely hope that it is because everyone is doing better with their grief and not the opposite. Still hanging in there and taking it day by day again. Hugs to all.
DesertDove ... There is so much that I went through in the hospital where my husband was that I couldn't get it all on this page so will leave my email on your private board and give you more info, but here is just a few of the things I learned to watch out for. (Remember, I live outside of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.)
I'm running out of room DesertDove so please check your private post and I'll leave you my email address and give you the complete story if you like. It is not private to anyone on here and if they want to know more they can let me know. Hope these tips have helped all.
DesertDove ... you are so right that it's all about money and the public is finally becoming aware that there are greedy people in big business with no morals even when it comes to children suffering from cancer or other serious diseases.
I always thought that AIDS was an 'ooops' or purposely done and I saw a documentary on just that and it was. How those poor people suffered and to pick on one group of people such as gays was unthinkable. People who received blood transfusions contracted HIV. I did see the 'Dallas Buyer's Club' and although depressing it was a wake-up call. Matthew MacConhey lost weight of course on purpose for that role and as usual did a superb job of acting.
I am so sorry your dear husband had to go through so much and have such treatments. I can certainly relate to you as my husband had pancreatic cancer and what the doctors and hospital did to him there was unthinkable and I had to fight like a wounded grizzly constantly.
Theresa ... very smart of you to ask those question donating to cancer research. I always ask what their administration fees are and they are stunned and can't even answer that. Anything over 10% is too much. Thankfully in British Columbia, Canada a cancer patient can get Marijuana and they carry a special document with them just in case they are stopped by the police. However, some say the Marijuana the government gives out isn't as good as the Marijuana growers have and so many of us are on the bandstand to fight government to legalize Marijuana mainly for medicinal purposes and treat it as a business (farming it) and stopping the grow-ups here that can be dangerous for the police to enter premises. Killing two birds with one stone, but oh no, that would make no sense to our government yet they would be making millions in tax money. The more I research all of this the madder I get. There is a drastic drop in chemo therapy treatments by patients and they are looking for alternative treatments. The pharmaceutical companies are in dire straights over it and it's means of course a big loss of money.
