smhenglish Posted October 17, 2007 Report Share Posted October 17, 2007 I posted a list of symptoms of grief in the Behaviors of Bereavement forum. I know some people don't necessarily venture out of this forum, but I wanted to at least let you know to go take a look. I have found this list extremely helpful in understanding that what I feel is very normal and necessary.I haven't posted in a while. I have been on disability for depression over the past month, and my doctors have decided that I am not yet ready to go back to work, so I'm taking a second month. I have no desire to return to work. I am going through cleaning out and getting rid of stuff that Eric collected over the past 10 years or more. Most of these items I have no use for so I'm donating or giving them away. Obviously, I am keeping certain items for sentimental value for either myself or my children. My mother has been coming over twice a week to help me do this. When she doesn't come, I often go back to bed after the kids are at school and sleep all day. I know this is a major symptom of depression, and I'm trying very hard to keep busy so I don't sleep away my pain.I've been reading everyone's posts, but as I tend to isolate in depression, I haven't responded. I am feeling better today (can you tell?), so I decided to drop a note to everyone. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
