Agree Theresa. Just be what you are. 

Guys one thing that helped in this journey of grief is helping others. Please try helping the needy ones. You can also help people in India through my organization if interested.

I understand Brett, but I don't want to be "checked out"

They mess with your mind, I just want to be myself again.

I also would like to hear from Bluebell.

Theresa, I finally came to the realization that what I was doing wasn't working for me. And I realized that taking an anti-depressant couldn't be any worse than crying all of the time, not sleeping, and destroying myself with guilt and depression. Trusting your doctor in a situation like this is a leap of faith, but remember that you are in charge of your body. If you don't like the anti-depressant that your doctor prescribes you can always stop taking it and try a different one. Taking the pediatric dose may not cut it. It's a good place to start. It gives you the opportunity to gauge how the medication impacts you, but if it is well tolerated you will probably need to try a higher dose to feel the benefits from it. It takes a while to adjust to an SSRI, but if you can hold on the side effects will lessen. If they do not, you can just taper off and try a new one. Be your own advocate. Do what you have to do to feel better.

One of the most disappointing things about being a Nutritionist is that I will suggest a supplement that I know will help a person, but they will be like, "Well, I'll think about it..." and I know that they won't give it a try. I deal with that daily. I can't prescribe anti-depressants. Only a doctor can do that, but I can certainly see when someone needs one. Give yourself a fighting chance to feel better.

Well it probably did help me but I gained about 20 pounds and I hardly eat anything because of my IBS so I don’t know what happened

Ok thanks Theresa. I sometimes want to try them but skeptical. 

Comment by Theresa on Tuesday

Avi I tried one Lexapro I did the pediatric does of 5mg

Comment by Avi on Tuesday

Theresa, are you trying too many anti depressants?

Comment by Theresa on Tuesday

Ok so my friend had to do the unthinkable, her dog is not suffering anymore.  But it just set off a crying spell with me.

Maybe I need to go to the dr again, for the 10th time.

So he can just look at me and say, do you want to try and anti-depressant.  ugh

You're too young to be a widow

I never thought that I would be a widow in my forties.  My friends can't relate and feel the need to comment on everything, even if they have no experience with grief.  I know they mean well but only we know what we are going though.See More

"Thank you for posting your tribute article - so evocative and insightful.  What you said about things you did together and also things you did alone being stripped of all meaning is exactly true.  Everything is emptied out."

"bluebird, that's the perfect answer and exactly what I'd want. I think about this all the time. I also think of how hard it would be to have him back for 5 minutes and then to have to lose him again if I wasn't able to follow him. For…"
