I lost someone who is still alive. She was a staff member at a hospital I was at. It is a rule that a patient cannot contact staff for two years after your discharge. It has already been 8 months.  Me and this staff were REALLY close and we had a lot in common. I miss her so much. She got me through the roughest of times. I talked to her about everything and anything. She was my person. 2 years is too far from now. I am afraid she will forget about me in 2 years. I am terrified to think what life would be like if she didn't remember who I was. I was in the hospital for over a year. I saw her everyday for almost a year. I talked to her almost everyday for almost a year. I doubt she will forget me but I don't want to take chances. I am so depressed. I don't know what to do.

2 years seems excessive.  Did the two of you talk about getting together in 2 years?  Life can be so hard.  Just take one day at a time.  Stay in the moment.  I know that is hard too.  From experience, I know I have missed opportunities for joy by obsessing about the past and the future.  Just my 2 cents.  Believe me, I know the waiting is difficult.  Wishing you the best of everything.  

Hi there, I can understand how are you feeling right now. But you need to follow the rules.

"You're welcome, too.  As for me -- same as it has been since my husband died. I don't expect it will ever change. I know what you mean about being over the shock, and I suppose it's usually/mostly that way for me as well, but…"

"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…"
