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.

Deb S ... Unfortunately dear friend this is the way grief has been going for some. Ernie passed in 2011 and although I'm energetic, volunteer, go to Bible Study and out with friends or see my family there is just that hole there that I can't seem to fill so yes, I can cry uncontrollably every so often. I eat to live, I have energetic days and other days just like you I lay on the sofa not even pondering life. Other times I feel I have some sort of future. I really fluctuates depending on what is going on in my life. Even though I go through since this it becomes less intense. What you are experiencing is very normal and each day you get through is a day you are becoming stronger.
Dear Deb ...
You are so sweet to think of me and ask how I'm doing. I'm not getting any of the posts into my 'in box' and since the forum has been so slow I thought that was just the way it was. LOL Don't know why I'm not getting a 'heads up' on new posts. Hope it's fixed soon.
Luv ya girl
Mary Jane, Something to brighten your day (I hope)
Dear friends, Our group has been a bit quiet recently. I can take some of the credit for that as I'm not posting as often as I used to post. Nevertheless, each of you remain in my thoughts. I hope that everyone is doing as well as can be expected.
I consider myself a strong person but the raw grief experienced by the loss of my husband was an experience that I find hard to put into words. Uncontrollable crying? Affirmative. Days spent semi-comatose on a couch? Affirmative. Weeks without food or sleep? Affirmative. Minutes and hours and days and months and years in a fog? Affirmative.
I am now moving forward again. This is not the life I planned but it is my life. Since I have no alternative, it will have to do and I will have to do it well. That's how I roll.
I'd love to hear updates from everyone. I miss you!!!! Debbie
Mary Jane, Like Debby P, I'm sorry you are sick and that your trip wasn't amazing. Rain every day isn't welcome when on vacation. I hope you feel better soon. Debbie
sry to hear that you are sick Mary Jane, even sadder to hear your trip wasn't what you wanted it to be, its so hard to go away and then come back to a silent house. How is your cat? hope it wasn't anything serious, get some rest , debby P
I went to a seminar last night with the author as the speaker, have been reading the book and doing the journal for awhile now, I think its very helpful, don't try to get thru the book fast, its meant to be a slow read. also I got a meditation BOOK HE wrote called Grief One Day At A Time, its dated for every day of the year and you find the days date and read one a day, I like it so far, just got it last night
