Jerica, my daughter found out about Charles' death the day before her birthday, and she spent her birthday on a plane travelling in order to be here for me.  I'm can't imagine how hard your and her birthdays are because of the link with the death of our loved ones.  Her baby is due in May, and I'm hoping it will arrive on her birthday, so as to overwrite some of the sadness of that date.  I hope some good will come to overwrite the sadness of your birthdate as well.

Me too Donna.  My very words this morning.  I'm so broken.  I'm thankful for you all.

Regarding my grief counselor's comment, "I guess that depends on how long you continue to fight it" . . . who doesn't fight? The alternative is to give up. I don't understand it all. Pretty sure I'm broken.

I would LOVE it if you would light a candle for me. Yes, Theresa, it is hard. I'm having some anniversary feelings as (I think we talked about this once) the anniversary of my dad's death is May 1.  The air today feels the same as it did then, I'm missing my dad and sister and brother more than ever before. This is the time of year my dad started "lambing season" on his sheep ranch . . . sights, sound, smells . . . they all have an effect.  Sometimes I think it sounds so good to just lie down and let the roof cave in around me. Just when I think I'm ready to do that . . . I find my 20 seconds of courage to move on.  I'll say a prayer for you, Theresa.

@Theresa, thanks for lighting a candle, I will b doing the same for all of us. :-) also I too have my brothers 1st year anniversay of his death, it will beon May 25th. My god the time has flown by. I don't know how to feel at this point. I rem this like it was yesterday. I replay the whole scenario over n over. :-( . Also the day I buried my brother was on May 31st which was my Birthday. So that too I will feel like sh** (excuse my french) but that's how I'm ging to feel. But I know my family will b looking out for me cuz clearly they will know y. :-( please pray for me, cuz lord knows imma need it! :-( god bless..........

I'm so sad today.  Maybe it is that my son Charles' 1st anniv of his death is soon (May 1).  That is an interesting comment by your therapist, Donna.  It's sometimes difficult to know if we're doing it 'right', isn't it!!!  How to 'let it flow "through" us', and on and on.  Joyce, sometimes I'm still numb.  I go back and forth between numbness and awareness.  Today my tolerance for pain is low.  I'm lighting a candle for all of us here today.  Love and hugs to you.
