Dimcl Posted December 13, 2010 Report Share Posted December 13, 2010 More than one person on this site has said that journaling has helped them, so about 3 weeks into this journey (3 weeks ago), I started a journal. It helped somewhat, but I found that I was kind of writing a report. Tonight, I sat down with pen in hand (not on my computer) and started a letter to my darling Glenn. He was not a "talker" and if he had anything really on his mind, he'd write me a letter. So, I started this letter to him and just started telling him my news, how I was feeling, what I'm doing to try and get through this, how I'm coping. I asked him what he thought of my plans for his ashes, thanked him for advising me to spend Christmas with my parents, just whatever came into my head. I started the letter by warning him that it would likely be a long one, and it will be! I put pen down for the night after 6 legal-sized pages and I know that this is the right way for me. It's a letter TO him and it feels like he might just read it. Silly, no? I just thought it might be something that other members might try if they haven't already. It's going to bring me much comfort, I just know it. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
