thanks. I'm sure things will improve - get easier - if I just stay cognizant of how I really feel. I started yesterday by acknowledging my grief and welcoming it. Today's a bit better and I know tomorrow will be even clearer. I know what I need to do (physical exercise is one thing) and thankfully have some time off work after today to focus on these needs.
My biggest issue through all this has been ignoring how depressed I've been. That 'happy mask' was worn only in public but, when alone I buried all else in self-indulgence/medication. One highly motivating factor is helping my Son - something I can't really do if I'm unhealthy.
So....one day at a time...one moment at a time......trying to remember that each moment above ground is a good one.
I wish I'd had the sense to sign on here sooner....ah well, better late than never.
Finish each day and be done with it.
You have done what you could.
Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can.
Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.
