  1. Kflex, I just read this. Wow. It sounds like me. Same thoughts and everything. How are you doing today. I'm only two months out.

    Tough times

    A little over two months. I feel worse. I always cry. My son graduated high school today. What did you all do in the beginning to help the pain and grief?? Melissa

    How to handle triggers?

    I have to agree with the fact that it's getting more and more difficult. It's been two months for me and I still cry multiple times a day. Right now, I find it hard to believe that it gets better.

    Helping them grieve/ reprogramming

    @Newtothis I like to blab on here and know that you have support. I often too have times like that with my children. I literally feel like I have to learn to parent again. Damon handled the discipline and now that he isn't here..I have to learn to handle these situations. Not sure if it's working yet but it's a definite a work in progress. And @Julester3 you seem to always have good advice. So thank you.

    Graduations..... These kids keep growing up!

    @RyanAmysMom I am about to watch out oldest graduate next week. And I am so dreading it. This is the one thing Damon wanted to be here for and he won't be. So I am really struggling with this.

    Will it ever feel better

    Hello. So here I am now ..two months and 6 days since Damon passed. And I feel worse than before. So far he has missed a prom with my oldest, a new licensed driver and his first car for my middle one, and the goal winning point scored by my youngest in her soccer game. We have missed Easter, mothers day, lots of end of school year events and my sons high school graduation next week. These are all supposed to be happy times but I dread them. I've gone back to work and quickly realized I need to work part time. I work as a RN and taking care of people is not what I want to be doing. I put in everything I had to help damon and wasnt able to keep him alive. So my question is , does this get better? Or am I going to feel like I'm just existing for the rest of my life? Sorry for this being so long..just need some encouragement.

    When to go back to work

    @virgo has does it feel to be back at work? And I am glad you were able to stay home. I definitely felt I needed time but then realized I spent that time crying while my kids were at school. I took off two months and returned last week part time. @RyanAmysMom I agree with you..I have a hard time sitting around. But since damon passed two months ago, I now feel like a walking zombie. I want to be my busy old self but I don't know if I will ever feel better.

    Hi Gemma, I am sorry you are here. I lost my husband almost two months ago. He was 41. I'm still very much trying to navigate through this nightmare. I get up and get outside and walk and read alot on this forum. All of those seem to help. And like what was said, you are not alone. Just knowing that has helped me through this darkness. Hugs, hugs, and more hugs!

    Social Security Children's benefits....

    @RyanAmysMom I am going through the same thing. My husband passed 7 weeks ago. My oldest turned 18 in February. And its alot to understand. I haven't gotten any benefits yet but I hope they are on the way. I have to call and ask the same questions you have because I could not think of anything to ask when I was there...thanks for the reminder.

    No will

    Yea @ captains wife, I was able to get the benefits from social security started. And that's a relief. But everyday there is more to do. I have family and friends who I am grateful because they have helping me a ton. And of you guys have helped more than you will ever know.

    It has been a whole week

    Hi, I am so so sorry you are here. It's been 5 weeks for me. He was 41. We too were married for 18 years. And have been together for 25 years. He is all I have known. We have three children who are the only reason I get up in the morning. Other than that I spend alot of time at the cemetery and crying when I'm alone. I know the pain will be easier to deal with someday but for now I take it one day at a time. Dont be too hard on yourself. This forum has helped me a ton these last few weeks. Hugs to you. Melissa

    Thank you faye. It's all just a big mess right now.
  14. @Bubu27 I have had something happen that has to be damon. The day after he passed my family was talking about text messages on our phone from him. I had none because I've been with him 24/7 taking care of him and I guess I deleted the texts ( I never keep texts). Anyways, while looking at my phone it randomly restarted. Suddenly old text messages appeared on my phone from damon. I know it sounds crazy, but this really happened. I have no doubt it was him. Melissa
