Kimberly @KimberlyM389662 ,

 

It sounds like you have an extraordinary amount of stress on top of physical and emotional issues. I'm hoping that you are connected with some professionals with expertise in your areas of need. If not maybe you could get appropriate referrals by calling 211?

 

Thinking of you.

Jonibee @jonibee ,

 

Since I can cross my fingers, I will do that with hope that you will find some relief at the Ortho doctor for your fingers next week. I'm glad you have plans with family for getting through your one year anniversary. Sending thoughts for healing and strength as you go through the week.

Take care Jonibee. I hope your fingers feel better. In many countries a place is set at the table for the deceased, as they believe their loved ones are always with them.

Getting back to an activity that's engrossing relieves stress. Reading, needlework etc  I'm not much on reading these days. I still find needlework satisfying. Except I need bigger squares on cross stitch fabric

Lol. It's also tiring. Doesn't take much to get tired these days.

Nicole @SpringIsHereSoHappy, I like when it is dark at night time and when it is light in the morning. Changing times messes up my body's natural time clock and I have a harder time keeping a consistent schedule.

I solved problem of outside light by getting solar floodlights. Ones I  got have spikes. And go on and off by themselves.

 Can be put in potted plant, moved, etc.  They work good. Lessens electric bill.

I am more vigilant about identifying things each day that I am grateful for. When any angry feelings arise, I am taking a step back and thinking through the situation. Both have reduced my level of stress.

Thank You for your kind words and thoughts.  It was a difficult week for me.  I have ordered the gravestone for my husband and went to put flowers on his and my son's graves.  It was a lonely, sad feeling.  I stayed home and had very little contact with people to work my way through the sadness.  My son's home sold so on November 9th we flew to Idaho to look at homes.  He bought a beautiful home which will close the end of this month.  I found three communities that I would love to live in and instructed my realtor to begin the search.  I have A LOT of work here to do to prepare to sale my home and pack.  I guess it was a good thing that I already replaced the sewer system, electric panel, water heater, pool equipment and replaced all the appliances!!!!   Now the work begins.  It will be a new beginning for me, near my last remaining brother, in a place that is safe to walk and live without fear of being attacked or robbed.  (What a concept)  I also got an appointment on 12/21 to see the rheumatologist and hope that he can discover the reason for all the leg pain.  Things are looking up for me and I am excited.  ♥️

Cadee @Cadee2719,

 

You made it through a very difficult week and did it in your own way. The feelings won't disappear, but you live on with all of your fond memories.

 

Now you are expressing excitement about the changes on your horizon. You have put all of the repair work in on your current home so that leaves the packing to do. It's great that your son has sold his home and has a closing on his new home. You made the trip to Idaho and found three potential communities for you and that's terrific. You have a doctor's appointment scheduled in December and soon you will be near your brother in a place where you will feel safe again. 

 

I am so happy for you and impressed with all that you have accomplished!👏🙂

Thank You Marcy for your support.  I truly appreciate the fact that my son is willing to pick up his practice and relocate to another state with me.  There I will be near my last remaining sibling and his wife and a grandson; the last of my immediate family.  That seems important to me at this stage of my life.  I still struggle to speak about my husband, son and brother without crying.  I am hoping to get stronger.  I decided that I would leave the home I loved for the past 46 years to be near family and to be SAFE.  NOW the work begins!  I cannot express my gratitude to the friends I have on this site.  Without your support, I would not have made it and I love you all for being there for me.  I am happy that your remodeling is done and you are slowly recovering.  I will keep you informed of my journey.  ❤️

Hi Nicole @SpringIsHereSoHappy

 

I am back home safe and sound! It is a new adventure traveling alone. Some parts were OK and others not so much. I'm glad I gave a short trip a try.

Don't be afraid to stop and pause when a memory  a moment in time when our love one was by our side.  Remember,and if you close your eyes for just a minute, they will feel like they are right there. I shed a tear, but I feel the strength and i can smile now it is almost a warmth of hug around me, for I am Alone now, and never thought that would be.  .And keep telling the stories,those important moments, over and over, as we need to. The right people in your life will always listen. Even if you cry each time it's ok,cause one day you will laugh at the silly moments in time that we were so fortunate to have. Blessed it Be.
