  •  For me, there is so much anxiety. (10+ / 0-)

    Stuff that I could do that completely baffles me now.  Plans put on hold, I was fearless when Jeff was around, and now? Everything is so hard.

    Should I sell the cottage on the River? It just doesn't mean much to me now. Actually I can't sell the cottage until his name is expunged from the title. Details like that.

    I have become agoraphobic, other that going to the grocery, normal everyday things like that are alright. But taking a trip is not going to happen, except for the three hour drive to my cottage. And the three hour drive back to my home.

    Things are better after two years and one month in some ways, but not in all ways.

      of your struggles.  It seems the cottage is sort of a life source for you at the moment, it gets you out of your house.  For myself, I spent the 2nd and 3rd years reclaiming things, activities, places that were such a part of our lives, so I could continue to enjoy them with him in spirit.  It wasnt easy, still isnt, but I believe there is important energy behind all those 'together' times that I need for myself to move forward.  I know it is different for everyone and I wish you the very best on your new journey.
