Hello to all my forum friends who were so much there for me over the months of frustration and worry over Mom. On Thursday, it will be three weeks since she passed. I think of her a lot and I wish I could get rid of the pictures in my mind from the last couple of months. It still feels like I'm going to wake up and this will have been a dream. My Dad visited me in a dream after he died, but Mom hasn't.
The memorial service is over, I've found homes for most of Mom's little possessions, pictures, etc and I'm close to wrapping up the legalities, paying bills. I thought once the worry and responsibility was over I would feel so much more relaxed but I guess the after effects hit me.
Our planned 1500 mile camping trip to visit family, leaving Friday didn't happen. I haven't been feeling well for a couple of weeks, maybe from months of pent up stress and I was too sick to go. A doctor visit, and two days later Urgent Care, a UTI and IV for hydration.
My GP had put me on an antidepressant and the very first pill made me sick for four days which aggravated my persistent vertigo.
Wow, I thought I was so strong, that I was dealing with things, but I guess emotional recovery is going to take a while!
How is everyone else doing?
