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.

Thanks Steve, my sister happens to work in a hospital in the area & one of her co-workers works for hospice but they only offer joining a group which totally interferes with my work schedule because it is during the afternoon hours, so I tried to look for bereavement groups in my area only to be disappointed again because they are very far or in areas that are not safe to go to during evening hours, so needless to say, this site has been my life saver, can't thank you enough for starting it, have met so many caring people that are going thru the same thing & completely understand my feelings & if I need to vent all the time or once in awhile, thanks for your response, will continue to look for groups that may start in my area.
Hi Elvira. I feel your pain. Gus has now been gone 5 months and I feel just as lost today as I did when it happened. I too am having terrible problems with focus and concentration, to the point where I just can't seem to get any work done and it's really affecting my business and productivity. I keep trying to motivate myself but it's just not there. We did celebrate my daughter's 16th birthday this weekend with family and her friends and that was a nice distraction. Of course I can't stop thinking that her daddy wasn't here to be part of it, but it was important to make it a good day for her and we managed to do that and put the tears aside for the day. Please try to look forward to your son's wedding coming up and know that as heartbroken as you are to be part of it without your husband that somehow as moms we need to muster up the strength to celebrate for our kids and make the day special for them. I let myself laugh last night at the restaurant and probably enjoyed myself with family for the first time in a long time without tears. Of course the tears came back today, but we showed my daughter a happy birthday last night with the help of my husband's brother and his family and it was okay. I hope you can try to do that too for the wedding. Take care.
Hi all, horrible weekend, all I did was cry & sleep, like the sleep part because I am not thinking, why does it seem to be getting worse rather than better as the days go by, I know it's too soon, he has been gone only 4 and a half months but I can't bear to think of life without him, extremely depressed, hope the depression meds the doctor gave me start to do their work soon before I go nuts, my family is getting worried because at this point it is affecting my health, thank you all for listening & letting me vent.
