"Deborah, I agree about the 2nd year. The first year you are just reacting. My fog hasn't completely lifted but I do feel more clear. It doesn't make it any easier. I recently joined a couple of online groups that have a lot of members that…"
"Sara, I've been watching A Million Little Things. I enjoyed it, but my situation doesn't involve suicide. I will say that in watching Grey's Anatomy, and several other shows where there is death, I felt like it actually helped me…"
"HI Mary Jane. The way I see it, there is no privacy really, so it doesn't bother me. I never post anything that I would care if anyone saw. Plus, my business, which is Real Estate, is based online with regards to all of my websites, etc...so…"
"Hi Mary Jane, Yes, that happens to me too with the nicknames. They are ingrained into our brains. Like parents calling their kids by the wrong names. It's just habit. On the subject of funny TV shoes, there is a newer one called American…"
Yes, it's all the unanswered questions that drive us all crazy. Even though we know there are never going to be any answers. It's two years tomorrow, Aug. 25th, that my Bill died of a glioblastoma. Hearing that John McCain has…"
"I've been reading some of the posts...it's amazing how we all share the same experiences. Yes, weekends suck!!! It's like you get drawn down into a dark hole of feeling so alone and remembering all the horror. Yes, I turn on the TV…"
"Mary Jane, I haven't been on this site for a while now, but I just read your last post. Nobody tells us anything! Or maybe they kind of do, but we have no idea what it means. Or can't believe what it could mean. If I had really known the…"
"I feel your pain. I too lost my husband last August. It was from a brain tumor and it was only 10 weeks from when he was seemingly fine and diagnosed to when he died in hospice. I'm about your age and my husband was about the same as your…"
"To follow up on Option B, I've now finished it and discovered that there is a huge online support group on Facebook. Just put in Option B and it will take you there. One of the most inspirational blogs is from Patton Oswald whose wife died a…"
"Don't know if any of you have read it yet, but I highly recommend Option B by Sheryl Sandberg. I'm about 3/4 of the way thru and find it very helpful. She addresses pretty much everything that we all have gone thru, are going thru or…"
"Apologies if this posts twice. I was also afraid for my two kitties, that I wouldn't be able to take care of them after Bill died. After all, I couldn't save him, so what made me think I could take care of the cats? Of course, they are…"
"I haven't been here in a while but I still think of all of you. I'm coming up on 8 months since Bill died and all of your comments ring true. I was very scared in the beginning of being alone at night. That has gone away and I set my…"
"Hello all, I thought I would power thru today but no such luck. Bill and I used to say that "every day was Valentine's day" when someone would ask if we were doing something special. And that was true. We didn't make a big deal…"
"Tiffany, it wasn't enough time. We all feel the same way. I tell myself every day, in an effort to not fall into such despair, that I'm so lucky to have had Bill for the time that I did. I try and be thankful and grateful for that. It…"
"Tiffany, for me, I found that it helped to do the same routine that I had always done when Bill was at home. So the same breakfast routine, the walk to the gym (I spend that 5 minutes on the way and back talking to Bill), I say the same Good Morning…"
