Does the falling asleep in the empty bed ever get easier
For me at least, No. Eight months now and the only thing that helps me fall asleep in this enpty bed and house, is copious amounts of alcohol. On occasions like tonight, where I’ve just had a little. I’m lying here with a soggy pillow from the tears as the haunting memories of my wife and soul mate’s final breath some ten minutes before what would have been our 22nd wedding anniversary, last October.
I only keep going as there are things to be sorted and when completed, I want to rest with her in that eternal sleep.
I wish I could be more positive for you, but I’ve a case of the black dog, this past few days.
I know exactly were u r coming from, but I’ve got to keep going for our 11 year old but it’s dam hard the endless nights with your own mind
Take care and stay strong for your little one.
Sometimes it eases the silence, sense of isolation and negative thoughts, coming to this place and realising you’re not alone.
Best wishes and sweet dreams. MK-Dave
