It will be six months since my daughter Jeanne died from pancreatic cancer. In spite of my prayers, sometimes I cry several times a day. Other days I'm managing. I am emotionally fragile. How long does it take to reach some kind of stability? I have talked to the doc about antidepressants, and I have tried several in the past, but due to CFS, they seem to backfire on me. Serious side effects, so I don't really think that is a good option. Or is it just a matter of sucking it up and/or offering it up and waiting for relief? Those of you who have been in my shoes, how long does it take before some kind of normal life returns? So I don't embarrass myself by breaking into tears at inoportune moments?
