I'm so sorry for your loss. What a terrible time for you. I'm hoping you are doing well, and find comfort in your friends at VA.@Baron23 my husband passed away almost a year and a half a go. I had let @momofthegoons know. It’s been a really rough time. He was only 61 and had much more to do in life, We were married a long time. I didn’t know what I was going to do without him. I was sleeping all the time when I wasn’t working. Was experiencing terrible cycles of anxiety that would last for days. I was waiting for the next horrible thing to happen. Every stressful thing was a huge deal. I went to my family doctor and started therapy and was asked if I wanted to start medication. This was around this last December (2018) that I started medication. It took two months for the meds to kick in - it was a long two months.
