Since my husband's death on July 24th which just happens to be our 27th wedding😭 anniversary things have been very difficult, as you can imagine.. I'm struggling. I used to love to exercise. And now just something of a pastime. My eating habits have suffered. I've been basically living off of his ensure and boost drinks because I haven't had an appetite n I don't want to pass out. Tonight I ate my second dinner since he died. ldk why is it feels different because we basically never really ate together anyway because of a work schedule. There was many a night where I cooked for 1 and ate by myself and was fine. Other than dropping my plate because of my SCI. 😆 No problems. It feels different now. Everything feels different. Not only did my husband die too young n too soon. But soon I'm going to face eviction and I have to put down a dog (old n cancer 😥) And then find a place to live that will let me keep my other pets. But that's a pipe dream because we weren't prepared for this, my husband had no life insurance. I spoke to a grief counselor and I think I'm supposed to speak to her again this Friday I'm not sure my mind is reeling with everything I have to do. It doesn't help. Without my husband who I've been with since I was 19 years old, I feel lost, incomplete and, alone. I have no family nor did we ever have any children. I need to make sure I keep my movement up because of my sci bc it's a part of both my OT and PT at home. I must to make eating a priority. Because if I don't have my health will suffer. Sometimes you just have to put one foot in front of the other and doing nothing more

    I am so sorry for your loss. Grief counseling can be most helpful, your blogging similar. Hopefully some of us can help with encouragement and a listening ear to bear some of the heavy weight you are carrying today. Thank you for sharing.

    I am so sorry. Sometimes the only thing you can do is simply put one foot in front of the other, as you wrote. You have much to cope with right now. Sending positive thoughts of strength and peace to you.
