Depleted

Some days I spend so much energy fighting the loneliness and fear that I have nothing left.

Combining my current state of grief with my pastimes of art and gardening has produced this series.  Please click on the image for a better view.

  1. One step at a time…and having plans for the week ahead helps a lot….and I still do that. If I see a totally empty week ahead, I plan stuff

    1. It does help, it was good advice. Isolating myself will make this so much worse. I understand from your comment, Sue, that you have suffered this loss too. Whenever it may have been I offer my condolences and sympathy to you. This is, for me, the worst days of my life.

  2. Fear is hard to conquer, but maybe if you think of each day as a gift, an adventure, a new door hiding a new opportunity. Plan fun times with friends, find a support group. If you don’t have a pet, get one. Then you can talk to them, not yourself, and they are a reason for living. Hugs.

    1. Thank you, Carol. I haven’t yet reached a point when I can think of each day as a gift, though I know it is. It is still a day without him. A friend who has been through this twice told me to always a have a plan for tomorrow, something to form my day around and I do that and it helps. I’m having friends in for dinner this weekend for the first time. I will miss him because he was always such a great help and going solo makes me feel sad but at the same time like I am making a statement, to myself, about going forward. But I don’t know if that makes me feel good, or sad. And my Cooper, black lab, he gets an earful every day. He’s a very good listener and great solace. I appreciate your comments.

          1. I understand how you could feel that way, but I don’t think that’s what it would be. He will always, always be with you, in your heart and memories, in his spirit. And what would he want for you? I don’t think he would want you to be unhappy. He loved you – when you love someone you want what’s best for them.
