I am afraid i will be alone on christmas. My only options involve traveling long distances and i'm not up for that. How to get through the day?

Thinking of you today. Touch base when you find the time and let me know how you're doing.

Sending hugs and my love

(((((((Michael)))))))

Merry Christmas,
Love,
Terry

Today is three months since my wife Roxanne died. I actually went out last night to hear music - the first thing ive done in three months - and was able to enjoy it. I was thinking, boy, im doing pretty good! Haha. Not so much. Today i came crashing down. Back to bed for me. Ugh. Will this ever end?

Three months time is so new and raw a pain.

Takes time and patience. One day, one minute and one second at a time.

Here for you.

The pain continues. I am in the process of selling the condo we had in georgia (ive retreated to another place i had in Mass) and buying a new home in ga with my wife's son (my stepson) and family. I would have an inlaw quarters. Im all alone in mass and didnt want to live in the place my wife and i shared in ga. Im ambivalent about the whole thing but feel i need family support. I have none where i am. Im putting a lot of money into the purcchase and am not even sure if and when ill go there. Paralyzed but made a commitment to son and family as they love me and dont want me alone. Thoughts?

Hi Michael,

So happy to learn that you will be with your son and other family for support. That's so important.

Sure do understand that the pain continues. It's the price of love and loss.

Hugs,
Terry
