"I'm sorry John. Often Hospice will administer medications to help with delirium. Some are very good and some not. I'm a nurse so I can say that even though I dont work in Hospice. I think it is the helplessness is the…"
"I relate to you all who have posted lately. 2 years for me. 2nd year was worse than the first as reality set in and shock lessened. I am still in a trauma state of mind. Forgetful, irritable, less patient. I isolate…"

"Hello Joe. I lost my husband May 10 2017. I do read all the comments posted but rarely comment. It always makes me feel better to know I am not alone in my grief and unlike some people, I am not able to " move on". I know he is out there…"

As my third year alone approaches on April 29th, there is no peace. I miss Nancy more than ever and the only thing that makes living tolerable is my belief that I WILL see her again in the next life.

I am seeing a counselor of late and it doesn't do much more than kill time.
