I'm still going through a process -adapting to the new me, and learning to let go of the old me. I know with "time" passing it is better for me and I am able to accept it more and more each day. We're all unique and the amount of time it takes one person to accept this may be totally different for another. I too thank God for this support group and know we are in this together no matter what stage we're in!
With the holidays I'm learning quickly it adds more stress. I had guests from out of town and all the extra commotion (had granddog all week too) I am pooped! And the cold weather is giving me more pain - maybe for you also?
