I’m not sure if it is due to the fact we started a new year without Robbie or because his one year anniversary is coming up, but I’m drowning in grief the past week. It impacts everyone around me. I am wondering if this is my new normal and if so, how do I cope better. I was holding my own for awhile going up and down, but right now I am in a pit and not bouncing back up.
Grief Share was a really helpful group and I just finished my second round of 12 weekly classes/support. I haven’t decided if I will go through it again, since it is the same lessons. Grief counseling was helpful, but the person I was going to left the practice without any warning the beginning of December and I haven’t tried to replace her yet, because starting over sounds so difficult. Reading grief books and the Bible helps. Knowing Robbie is free of pain helps. Many things help, but nothing takes away the sadness of living without him.
