I thought I was doing so much better until the anniversary of Don's death and we spread his ashes. Boy, have I found out I am not done grieving! Fortunately, I have a wonderful (actually there are not enough words to say how fantastic he is) doctor! He has managed to find an antidepressant that seems to be helping. He is giving me samples since I cannot afford to buy them right now. He also refers to me as "Blue Eyes" since he knows that my husband daily told me he loved my "pretty blue eyes". He also gives me hugs whenever I am there. He knows I don't get that human contact and it is something we all need. When I told me psychologist he did that HE gave me a hug when I left! It is nice. I also have two sons who constantly help me in numerous ways even though they don't live close by. And I am blessed with many GREAT friends! Yet, there are still times, as I am sure many of you can relate to, that I feel totally alone and hopeless! I hate this and want it to stop! No matter how hard I try, the sorrow creeps in many times a day! So, just know we are all in this together!

I have just experienced the loss last week of my wife of 34 years. We knew it was coming but nothing prepares one for the hole left behind. She passed in faith so she is better off. I did so much in her last months to help her but I now have life alone and I'm not used to that.
If anyone needs help or just wants to talk let me know.

There are many days I cry and cannot stop. You are not alone. We are all on this horrible roller coaster ride together and I for one want to get off but don't know how. I am just taking it one day at a time.

Hi to all, I will explain the RAID. I was invaded by hornets making a next between my front of the house and the side of the porch beside it. There is a little gap that hornets liked I guess. Had been spraying it with RAID for like three mornings in a row. I broke out in hives Tuesday morning and went into a "anaphylactic shock" and blacked out while on the phone to 911. My blood pressure bottomed out several times before transport to the E.R. I never regained conscienceness until way after arriving at the E.R. They kept me overnight to get blood pressure up. Am doing okay now.So, I am apparently allergic to RAID lol. I am to "keep away from Raid". Hugs to all. Hugs are good.
