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.

Elvira, thinking of you and keeping you in my prayers,dear. I know it will be hard, but try to put aside your grief for one day and help your son have a beautiful wedding. This is a day they will remember all of their lives, so try to help them make it a day of joy and love.
Phyllis, I know so well what you are feeling and I just wish there were something I could say to help -- let your tears come -- it is okay to cry as much as you need. I am glad you have your best friend to help you through this awful time.
Sending love, hugs and prayers
Elvira, you will be in my thoughts and prayers. Hugs, Jane P.
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.
