7 months today

7 months ago today, my world ended.

It feels like yesterday.

It feels like a millenia ago.

I still feel raw, as though someone has peeled the skin off my feelings and left the nerves exposed.

I still do NOT want to be here.

But I am learning to fight.

Even if this totally sucks.


  1. Some of these feelings never disappear, and I wish I had a secret for you on how to deal with them, but I don't. Hang in there, you sound like you are doing better each day!
    Thinking of you

  2. thanks CarrieBoo for managing to motivate me, especially as I know how tough you have had it recently. Hope you are hanging in there too xx

  3. The anniversaries suck and I'd love to tell you they get better but we know they won't.

    Today is the 16 month mark for me and since I am still puppy-less, I'm treating myself to a nice dinner at one of our favorite places.

    Sending ((hugs)) your way for a peaceful day!


  4. L - enjoy your dinner. Can I assume that you are going to eat pasta in honour of your favourite pasta-head? Hugs

  5. Hugs from Canada. I'm almost at 5 months and can relate to the feeling that it feels like it was yesterday and a millenia. You do inspire me through this shitty journey. Take care of yourself today.


  6. ha - shitty journey, I love people who say it as it is :-) THAT made me smile.


  7. No good pasta places in town (I'm too picky I guess). I will go to one of our favorites in Des Moines in a couple of weeks--or maybe on the 18 month anniversary.. :)
