"Debby P, It does take time to heal. I'm with you on patience - my own patience is often lacking. I mentioned the therapist idea because I read in your post that you were considering seeing one. You'll know if that is the right path for you…"
"What is going on with the comment page? I just posted a long post and it disappeared after posting!
Kaela, I just wrote a long post to you apologizing for not seeing your earlier post to me sooner. I tried to edit one word and the post…"
"Debbie P, Forgive me for not responding to your posts earlier. I've been absent for a bit and am now returning to our fold. I read all of your posts and am so sorry for the losses that have brought you here. As many of our angels have…"
"Mary Jane, Good for you for recognizing that you don't want to keep around these racing thoughts of possible misfortune. You'll conquer it. I'm sure of it.
Please don't be too concerned about not being able to have a cigarette…"
"Mary Jane, I love your post! You go friend!! When do you leave for the Outer Banks and how long will you visit? My settlement date is still up in the air but our visits might well coincide. Meanwhile, I am so proud of you! Debbie"
"Kaela, Please know that you are not alone in your reaction to the sudden death of your husband. I felt the same way and was exhausted for months. I began to realize that I needed this down time in order to begin to process my grief. On occasion, I…"
"Dear Andrew, I am sorry to read the heartbreaking circumstances that brought you to this group. You have joined an amazing place where support, caring, and love are expressed in every post. I agree with others who suggest that you hold off before…"
"Mary Jane, Feeling empowered is a great thing. WTG!
It looks like the weather will be beautiful for your trip with a range in the mid to high 70's. It is about 80 today and absolutely gorgeous. I am wearing a tee shirt and shorts. I brought…"
"Sarah, Thank you for your sweet note. I remain more exited than my soon to be 4 year old granddaughter at Christmas. I have seen photos and done research on hundreds of homes. I narrowed down the search and my realtor showed me about 15 houses. None…"
"Dear friends, I want to share an update. Over the past year I have often perused web sites of homes for sale with the crazy idea that I'd like to have a second house. My searches have taken me far and wide but I always return and concentrate my…"
"Marsha, Yikes! I am so sorry that you ran into that "person" and experienced this assault. I hope and pray that you are able to release his words from your memory. He and his toxic words are not worthy of taking up any more space in your…"
"Trina, Wow! Your beautiful and well written post brought tears to my eyes. Thank you for sharing your thoughts. You express my feelings in a way that I could never put into words. Thank God my Legacy family gets it. I know to the core of my soul…"
"Dearest Chuck, It is so good to read your post. I have tried to catch up on the many posts I have missed. Thank you for your caring nature. I continue to believe that your writing is among the best of the best. I once again encourage you to share it…"
Thank you Deb for asking. I wish I could say it was much better, but not really. I miss her more than ever. I pick roses for her first thing everyday. I touch her things and look at her at her pictures. I do try to keep busy. I stay in touch with our families and friends. I volunteer for mission work. I'm just not happy. It seems nothing can make me happy. I see her everywhere. I miss and love her so much. It still doesn't seem real. After a little more than 7 months, it just doesn't seem real. Don't get me wrong. Even though I'm very sad and cry a lot, thinking of her, touching her things, and even talking to her, gives me some comfort. I wish I would have shown more how much I loved and needed her before. Thanks again Deb. You are kind. Danny
