Well, sitting here watching the news. Feel very alone tonight. Do not always feel this way. Some nights I am good. Friday night my granddaughter is spending the night with me. Looking forward to that. Still trying to find the new normal for me. I am told this may take awhile to find a new normal for me without Terry.
Cheryl: One can never know what is in another's heart, but I can tell you that, I, too, feel the overwhelming sadness of lost love. The support of your counselor and doctor is very important; seeing them gives you guidance and structure. Self-care is priority one. Having lost my husband 43 years ago, my son 14 years ago, and my significant other just weeks ago, I know the horror, the anxiety, the emptiness. I've been through this before; am going through it again; and, as you, am working to put my life back together -- albeit in new ways. Take care and take it slow. Joan
Thanks Joan, Sometimes it is so hard to get up and get moving knowing you are by yourself when you wake up and he is never going to call me at work any more. Very sad for me.. I am going to a counselor and seeing my Doctor twice a month.
Give your broken heart time to heal. It is a slow process, I know. Do something nice for yourself every day -- a small gesture to make yourself feel better, a small gift, browsing in a new place, taking a different route to work which may encourage you to look at new surroundings. Little by little, you will re-imagine your life. Life without Terry is painful and sad. Over time, it will be less acute. You will always love him and remember the joy. Take your time. As much as you need.
In your own way. You will emerge from this and be OK. Life will be good again.
