    I lost my brother-in-law early this (thurs) morning. He & my sister had been married 43 years. I haven't slept in 36 hours. I'm doubling the klonopin tonight...legs are so tight. I've been pushing myself today running around trying to get errands out of the way, flowers, etc.
    I couldn't stop until all was done!
    He will be missed dearly by all his family. I do feel fortunate that I was there for my sister & his children when he passed from a massive coronary.

    I haven't written in a while, but tonight here alone, I felt the need to reach out.

    I know the strung out, can't stop, gotta be there feeling - in spite of the physical pain you're in. My brother-in-law died as well. He was 31 and he and my sister had been married 6 yrs. He had quickly become an icon in my family and to this day, the world doesn't seem right. There's time to rest tomorrow. That's what I kept telling myself. Just remember, take care of yourself and you can take better care of others. You (and your family) are in my prayers!

    I don`t think anything takes so much out of us body and soul as when we lose a loved one. We have lost two sons ,my mother and my brother. It is a deep painful loss. We manage to go on but I did`nt have this painful disease at that time, I can`t imagine being able to handle it and have the pain of the disease. Every thing that emotionly upsets me ( as it has with the loss of two dear friends ) really wipes me out for days. My love and warm thoughts go out to you today. May God Bless, from him we get our strength when we feel we have none. Clueless

    I am so very sorry for you and your family. I'm glad, too, that you could be there for your grieving family members, I'm sure that meant everything to them. Try to take care of yourself now and get some rest, so that you can take care of them, too.

    Again, I'm so very sorry for your loss---your family will be in my thoughts and prayers.

    Healing Hugs,
    Pam

    So sorry to see your message, I saw it posted last night but could not look at it at first. I recenty lost almost every person I was closest to and loved dearly. I had so much to take care of for almost a yr. So I know what it takes from one emotionally and physically. I did not take care of myself for so long and I am paying big time with no help or support. So try to get emotional rest and support.Take Care,Bless you along the way

    I will be in prayer for you and your family at this hard time. Try to rest, though I know that is almost impossible.
    Everyone always says take care of yourself and rest, but there are times like you are having now that you have to put others first. Then we pay for overdoing it.

    Praying for you,
    Revella
