I can think I am making progress but then it seems to catch me all over again.
Hi Trishj, I don’t think that’s at all unusual. You are not going backwards, but through another cycle. They talk about a roller coaster ride, and there are massive ups and downs, but another way of looking at it is like climbing a spiral staircase. You seem to be going round in circles but you are gradually climbing up out of your grief. Best wishes.
Hi, agree with Neil. I find it is one step forwards, two steps back at times.
Sympathise completely, I am finding things very hard at the moment.
Thank you Neil. Well I can certainly see that things have moved on over the months. I find I am better when busy but then I get so tired and stop trying so hard. That can be when it hits. Or when there are problems - most of them Andy would be there to talk them over with or help out so it just emphasises it.
Thank you Mel. Sorry to hear you are struggling too. If I look overall I can see that there is improvement but it takes so little to knock me back and it does seem I am just feeling I have made progress and then I go right down again.
