MaryBeth Posted May 16, 2006 Report Share Posted May 16, 2006 I feel like I have moved to a different level of this grieving process, one of some coming to terms with things, a more peaceful feeling. I do not feel like the person I was but in a transition mode of a new self.The board here has been more help then you will ever know, thank you all ! I also decided to start doing volunteer work here with the local alzheimer assoc, to give something back, in what I experienced. I remembered mom did volunteer work with the Red Cross & a local nursing home here, after my dad and her mother died. I could hear her telling me, pull yourself up by your boot straps and get going ! I also adopted a cat this last Fri from a local animal shelter and now I have a liitle companion here with me. He likes to get in my recliner in the living room, to keep an eye on my comings and goings, just like mom did, when she was in her recliner,24/7. I made it through, her birthday, easter. and mother's day, all firsts for me. Iam far from 100% yet, can still see a movie with someone passing away, and cry all over. I have also read some very good books on grieving that have helped.Thanks again to all of you, for your part in all this. Warm thoughts to all.
