For some reason she popped into my head. Anyone know how she is? Did she have the baby?

She had the baby. I think she's on here using a different name.

Did she get the cards/gifts everyone sent her? I had forgotten about her until just a few days ago. I hope she did, and I hope the new baby has been a huge blessing to her. I also hope we hear from her again someday.

I asked her via PM a while back. She did get the things we sent. I've been thinking about her as well and hope she is doing well and finding comfort in her daughter.

I have thought of her often as well. I hope she is loving on that baby. I hope that she feels comfortable to post whenever she feels like it. I know lots of us have kept her in our thoughts.

For the concern. Thank you so much for the kind cards and gift cards...so thoughtful.

I haven't posted since that post. I have not been using another name. I do read the posts from time to time, but not that much. I did receive messages from a few people and have messaged a few people, but not for a long while.

I had my baby August 27th, 5 weeks after my husband passed away. She is very sweet, a blessing, a joy, extremely beautiful and cute. But it is also quite bittersweet. Not as joyful or happy as it should be for a parent. At times I feel disconnected from her. I was really really depressed after she was born, about my husband. I'm still grieving of course. I am still on my baby leave. I was able to take 18 weeks, plus 4 weeks of break, plus 2 weeks of bereavement/personal leave days. I have not been to work at all yet this school year. I do not plan to return to my job, except for a week or two. I will be getting a doctor's note to excuse me from work for the remainder of the year (for PTSD/grief/depression). I cannot bring myself to return to the city in which my husband and I lived. All my memories of him are there, it's upsetting, it would be isolating(away from friends/family), it was highly expensive, my husband and I were unhappy in that area and planning to move in a year, and I feel unsafe there. I also feel too uncomfortable to return to my current school. I was very unhappy there the last two years and I don't like how people know about my husband. I hope to find a job out of the area in the following year.I just cannot teach when the emotions are so raw, especially at THAT school in THAT area. I have still not ordered his headstone. It still feels like a nightmare, and sometimes I have to remind myself that I am a living, breathing, heart-beating person as well. I still feel in a different layer of shock. I am staying with my family for now. I haven't felt like socializing much or even talking about it for the longest time. I do attend a suicide survivor's support group, which is more like group therapy, and that's very helpful. I am only 32 and my husband was 27 at the time. I will try to attach a pic of my baby, Felicity Hope, with her Felicity doll she got for xmas from her grandparents. She was 7 lbs 2 oz, and 21 inches. She has her dad's eyes, dimple, mannerisms, and looks a lot like him. Her hair color is from his side of the family. She also looks like me too. The NICU team was present at her birth (due to the stress of everything, she had meconium.)

Wow. It must have taken great strength and courage to post here again.

Hugs to you and your beautiful baby girl. It has only been a few short months, so of course it is still difficult. Sounds like you are making sound decisions and the support group should help immensely.

Allow yourself to grieve. You are so strong.

Blessings to you in the upcoming year. {{{hugs}}}
