Just a reminder to all of you over these next few days. The weather reports all over are talking extreme heat. Those of you out West have even warmer temperatures than here in the Midwest or East. Please keep well hydrated by drinking plenty of water. Hopefully all of you have air in your homes. If not, please find a friend or relative that has air and see if you can go there. Otherwise, find out where the cooling centers in your neighborhood or town are and use them. Please take care not to over exert yourself and check in here.

No need to thank me Phyllis, I know how devastating this loss was for me & know it's the same for you, for me it's been just over 2 months & it's just as raw as the first day he passed, I am trying really hard for my sons, one is getting married in July & the other is going to make me a grandma in November, but even these things make me miss him more & more, yesterday was a really hard day for me, had to deal with an unprofessional human being from my insurance agency, needless to say, I could not stop crying today, because he would have dealt with this idiot & not me, but come to this site as much as you need, I do, it helps me to vent all I want without anybody saying to me, you should be over it by now.

Sending Hugs & blessings,

Elvira....Thank you for your kind words. I have been reading some of the posts on here and I see there are people who do understand. I see myself in so many of them. I don't sleep well, a few hours at a time here and there. I also listen to a voice recording of him. Seems I am trying to hold on to every little thing. I never want to forget.

Found out that some of the medications I'm taking are causing more problems than they are worth. Doctor agreed to take me off another today but it also turns out I don't have high blood pressure anymore. Now it is low but I can't stop taking it because I have an arrhythmia I've had since I was young. So, the point is, if you have health symptoms, get them checked out. It might not be grief or stress.

Thank you! Traveled back home from S. C. we will never drive again way to long for us. Didn't move yet just checking out areas. You have to be sure first, but I'm ready. I'm so glad you had a great day with your family especially your granddaughter. Miss talking to you.

Wilela ... so nice to see you post my friend.

Thanks for the tip on the movie and I've seen the clips on youtube.  I did read the book so happy to hear the movie keeps to the book.  My girlfriend and I are going to see it Friday night and hope it raises more hope in us which I am sure it will.  I do believe in Near Death Experiences and, believe it or not hospitals leave a patient who has passed away one hour in the room so the spirit can pass and, when someone is passing away in ICU I've seen nurses taking notes on what an individual patient may say while in the process of dying so even the experts are taking notice.

Marsha, My thoughts and prayers are with you today.
God Bless and Take Care.

Hi everyone. I may have found part of the answer to why I am forgetting. It turns out the antidepressant I've been on can cause temporary memory problems. It takes 2months to go off it because it messes with your brain seretonin, oh yay! My piano came today. It is horribly out of tune so playing low and high notes are a bit painful but I sat down and played for two hours. For those of you whose dogs are grieving, mine did that too. Now, they are shameless when any male comes in the house. It is a bit embarrassing. Almost like I don't pay attention to them but when it is time for food...:). I also got my antique frame (1780-1840 circa) today. It had been shipped so some of the plaster had loosened. I had to stop and stabilize it until I can finish working on it this weekend. It has clay angels on a pecan frame. I'll need to varnish but will need to re gild the plaster first. I think I go from thing to thing because when I stop I have to think. Too painful still to do too much of that. Have a good evening everyone. I'm going to drink my tea and head to bed.

Marsha and all others that are interested in the movie "Heaven is for real".   I read the book.  If you read the book,  you'll know the movie - the movie is exactly like the book.  I've seen lots of movies that had a book that precedes  the movie,  I've never seen one most like the book as this one.  It was very pleasant and I'm sure you'll like it if you believe in that kind of thing.

Carol- That our little ones do I would be able to do this without him. So much joy and for just one day I'd like to be in his brain because some of the things that come out of his mouth OMG! To funny!!! I asked him to help me out the other day and he told me not right now. I asked him why he couldn't help me, he said I was playing in the sand box.   I love it, it keeps me going. Glad to see your still going strong also. Keep things positive.
