In Search of Help

Sunday, March 06, 2011

I'm struggling, I can't seem to make myself want to do anything anymore. I lost my husband of 31 years in January of this year, and nothing seems worthwhile anymore. My life seems like it is so strange now, I can't make sense of anything. I have trouble focusing for any length of time, my work is suffering for it and I don't know what to do to turn it all around. Why did this have to happen? I ask that question frequently, but I don't get much of an answer. I know that all things happen for good to those who love God. And I do love God, very much, He is the ONLY thing that has gotten me through this so far. I don't know what the answer is but I hope I find it soon. I don't like feeling like this and with spring coming, that is my favorite time of the year. I want to feel good enough to enjoy it.

    It is very tough after a dearly loved one dies. You are in classic depression. It would be advisable to talk to your doctor and also to go for counseling to your minister. I don't know what your attitude is toward medication for depression, but it really can be helpful -- especially combined with counseling.

God bless you!!! Focus on God's love for you!!!

I am praying for you!!!

    I'm so sorry for your loss. I cannot begin to understand all that you are going through. I am sure however that your husband would want you to go on living and enjoying your life. I believe it is the perfect time to look at your goals and maybe change them a little. If you originally did the vision collage that Chris the founder of this site is so passionate about it may be time to make a new revised one. If you didn't get around to making one before now is the perfect time. We all find times when we don't know why things are happening, things far beyond our control but we need a focus. That is essentially what a vision collage is a daily picture reminder of our goals and what we are working towards. Stay strong and begin planning one of those Spring activities you love. If you garden begin planning your garden, even if it is on a patio.

    Sorry that you are struggling, I know it is hard. So sorry for your loss. I am struggling also but with different things, life can seem so pointless at times. But you have to keep keeping on.
