The 5th of August makes 3 months since I lost my mom. I dread the from the 1st on waiting for the 5th. From that morning I am back at may 5th. I am back in that hospital room making the decisions I made and sitting with her as she died. This will be the first anniversary o have to work and I worry my emotions will be out of control

I haven't signed in to this site for quite a while, so I didn't see this post until now. I hope you were able to muddle through the 5th with less pain than you anticipated.

If you can, for the first few years at least, try to take a day off work on that day -- that's what I did. 

This is the first time I have worked on the anniversary of moms death the first two in was off. I am not sure how I made it through but I get through the day. I think that taking the day off may be best.

"The 4th of July is my husband's favorite holiday -- mostly because of all the cookouts/barbecues/food, but also because of the fireworks. So, as with so many other things since he died, I find that I can't celebrate it. There's simply…"
