Hello All, I love this post because it is so relevant for me. After my loss, I had this constant fight in me like adrenalin… the shock, as I know.from.reading your posts, so many of you suffered shock and trauma, Those of you that were unable to be with your loved one,…It’s a never ending list isn’t it?
It’s 23 weeks now, just over the 5 month mark. I’ve moved mountains, back at work, trying to put the pieces of my life back together… waves of emotions, melt downs, days in bed etc etc and then days where the fight is back on.
However, I started to feel unwell, vertigo, nausea and muscular pain all over. Burning skin … generally con fused, unable.to think straight or hold a conversation, messaging… well everything, even the tv became too much. This is when I had gotten through the first 8 blurry weeks ! I couldn’t go to work. MY WORLD HAD ENDED,yet again x Too much, I felt suddenly very very dark, very very low. I could not think of nothing good.
I GAVE UP! The image of life had changed from a mean cloudy grey to a soggy fierce charcoal x Vile ,This is depression I think.caused by grief and then a.full blown Fibromyalgia.flare x This is now 5 weeks.ago.x x.
I am now.taking medication for.the pain and I.am improving slowly. I.cant see my future … there really is no point but it’s a.tad and I mean, a tad better now x
We love our loved ones so much, my life was completely around him … my best friend etc, I know, that we know and any of us that come here, do so because our grief is profound and the process is so steady and slow … Grief is grief … We all have different levels of resilience and.deal.with thing differently. However, some losses are so life changing our resilience is.weakened. On top as we refer to … Covid restrictions have been damning.to our progress.
There is no limit on time… I will always feel this loss, it will always have an impact on my life as it will you too. I’m facing a tall brick wall that I can’t climb and nor do I want to because I would be leaving him behind.
Please please keep talking … my heart breaks for all of.you … my fight is.back on, it’s just not.quite as strong… I.spend.days in bed and then I force myself.to.do things x the pain is less, the vertigo is.easier because I’m on anti sickness tabs which controls the nausea … doing stuff is.always what makes.me.feel slightly better but sometimes I.just cannot.find the motivation and.at times trying to keep.going seems.futile without my quirky fab man x Missing is painful x x x
My love to you all and thank you so much for.talking.about.depression because I know.I am very high risk of slipping into the depths of.it.x.thankyou x
