I’m drowning.

I saw this post on FB:



And it’s so true.

There’s this wordless scream going through my head… “HELP ME… MAKE IT STOP”

But no one can hear.

Even when someone says “are you all right? Do you need something”  The “I’m fine” comes out of my mouth faster than I can think to answer honestly.

Although it IS sort of honest.

F(ucked up)

Totally fine.

I’ve been fine since the day he got sick.  I got even more fine when he died.   And then fine hit it’s *finest* moments when I changed my life entirely.


I’m fine.

Except I’m drowning.   And no one knows it.

And somehow I have to communicate that to my doctor, my counsellor and the psychiatrist that I’m going to see next week.

Somehow I need to communicate effectively how much I AM drowning and how much I desperately want to breathe again.  How much I want to feel GOOD again.

Without being flippant.  Without brushing it off.

Without just saying “I’m fine”

Because I’m not fine.  I’m not ok.

I want to be though.  I really, really want to be.

Grief Is Like the Ocean

    I lost my oldest and best friend, the love of my life Monday the 17th. I just keep hoping I’m having a nightmare and soon I will awake from this hell I’ve been going through for 6 days.
    Cancer is evil and mean. It was like a demon had gotten inside my husband and 37 days after he was diagnosed he was gone!! And here Iam lost and alone!
    Going insane!!!

      Sara, I’m so sorry to hear that…and I understand, truly.
      Having my sister nearby helped me like nothing else could because I was a basket case, literally. I hope you have someone close to you who can help you through each day.

    Sara… (((HUGS))) it’s horrible and awful and horrific in ways that no one who hasn’t gone through it can understand. Do you have anyone with you?

    If not – check out sslf.org and campwidow.org and thewiddahood.com Good resources.

    Peace & Love and hoping for softer days…
