"Kaela.....Working on your masters is huge so don't sell yourself short. It takes strength to put the effort in and focus. That's your work and it's probably helping even if you don't see it right now. My doctor…"
I think it is so wonderful that you are able to work. At this point I am not able to do much of anything except manage to take my classes and get my work done(currently a grad student getting my masters) but thankfully I don't have…"
"Kaela......It's hard to describe what it feels like but it's just this anxiety that builds inside me and I have this overwhelming nervous feeling. In the beginning, I would take a pill and lay there for a little bit until it kicked…"
I am so sorry to hear about what you are going through and I can literally relate so well. It is also comforting to me that theres someone out there who is experiencing the same thing. Its interesting you say 5-6 am because that is when I…"
"Kaela.....I too had to take anti-anxiety meds when I first lost my husband which was 20 months ago. Also, the early morning hours, usually 5:00-6:00 am seemed to be when panic really set in. I assumed it was because I'd have to get…"
"Thank you everyone for your encouraging words and validating how I feel. Prior to this happening, I did not experience this. I'd get the typical tired from a long day at work but I had energy and was a happy person. I could also cope with…"
"Kaela....What you are feeling is very normal. It's such a trauma to your system to lose your spouse and your body and mind need time to heal. I lost my husband 19 months ago and it's still takes every once of energy just to get…"
"Kaela ... My deepest condolences for your great loss. Your husband was far too young to have passed away and I won't even say I can imagine how you feel. My husband Ernie passed away April 27, 2011 of pancreatic cancer and he…"
"Thank you for sharing that with me. That gives me hope. I also do a lot of waking and I am not in a place where I can work full-time but it sounds like in time I will get there as you did. I haven't been very active on her up until this point…"
That is terrible. Sounds basically exactly like my situation. I am so sorry that you went through that. Did you experience any PTSD stuff about finding him? I continue to have nightmares and panic attacks when I think about that morning,…"
I just wanted to give you emotional and spiritual comfort. My heart really goes out to you. Losing someone you love is not something you can just wake up the next day and be okay about. You need time to heal. While you're healing, I…"
"Hi, and welcome Kaela.
I am sorry your husband Died so soon, and so uddenly. You will be getting a lot of replies, but right now, I want to address your fatigue. OF COURSE you feel fatigued! Thimost major trauma you can experience..and right now,…"
"Hi Kaela, I too am new to this group, my 1sr husband passed when I was 31, he was 36, I never went thru being tired but from what Ive read its normal and it will pass, when I don't know, I guess I was lucky that I had 3 little girls I had to…"
"That was 18 months ago. I was feeling as you were. I did a lot of walking, because I couldn't bear to stay in my home. The walls would feel as if they were caving in. I had to quit my stressful job, because no way could I function. After three…"
My husband and I had been together for 10 years and married for 2 years and almost 2 months when I came home from a seemingly normal day from work to find him on the floor where he had died from a cardiac arrest.
The world that I had…"
