I am so sorry for all that you have been through and still struggling...But yet, I am so relieved and happy that you have 60 days sober. How awesome is that...in the face of grief and loss you have maintained your sobriety...I applaud and admire you.
As you know, grief comes in stages, and they are:
* Denial (this isn't happening to me!)
* Anger (why is this happening to me?)
* Bargaining (I promise I'll be a better person if...)
* Depression (I don't care anymore)
* Acceptance (I'm ready for whatever comes)
These stages are not timed. They are personal...they are yours to use and move on to the next stage when you and ONLY you are ready.
I am sorry about your family members. We are here to listen and give any support we can. We also can receive support from you, you have much to offer, you know.
Welcome. Come back often and talk about it...if you want to. No pressure or judgment here. Just kind souls who have been through or going through grief just as you.
Peace and Prayers for you, TLM. You are in my thoughts.
