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.

How to grieve without your soul leaving you

My boyfriend was killed march 13,2022 he was killed 16 minutes after I left his house to go to my house to grab clothes for me and him to wash… it’s crazy how life works for some reason something in me didn’t get to make it back to him and something made me go to work that next day get off work and go to his job then his house to look for him for me to hear the sad words that no one in life would ever want to hear.
