Day 15
« on: June 15, 2017, 11:08:55 AM »
Here in Connecticut. Brought my wife's ashes back to her mother's. Had to fly with her in my back pack from houston.

For a while I was feeling numb and that was okay. But these last few days I honestly don't know how I'm going to make it through this. I've been surrounded by friends and family but I feel so alone.

Tuesday I went and got her engagement ring tattooed on my ring finger and her initials on the underside. It came out great.

I'll be here in Connecticut for a week helping out my MIL. But then I have to head hack to houston. I'm doing my best to take it day by day. Small victories.

Rooting for you Mac. The small victories add up and you can draw strength from them. Keep breathing! Hugs today.

One day at a time Mac.  Try to stay focused in the now instead to the future.  I remember it being inconcevable for me to go there.  I had enough pain to deal with in the present.  Some days it was one hour/ one minute at a time.  Remember to breathe when you feel overcome with the grief and drink lots of water to stay hydrated because crying is dehydrating. 
Small victories is so right.  Hang in there!
Hugs to you.
I don't want it to be his legacy that his death destroyed me.
I need to honour his life by rebuilding my life.

Small victories are all you can ask for early on Mac. Have no expectations and be gentle with yourself. Thinking of you.
