My partner died August 4th 2009 in my arms at our home after a long battle with this dreaded disease... a social worker at Calvary Hospice, New York, thought it might help me to come here and maybe get some advice/support. My days are up and down but seem to becoming more down than up as the time goes on. I feel like my body is failing me sometimes.. everything hurts, 3 weeks after the funeral I passed out and smashed my face up pretty bad.. I try and eat but often end up vomiting it all back up.. I started a support group 2 weeks ago... I cried for the whole hour and half during both sessions and felt so drained when I left.. Im not sure I can keep this up for 10 weeks..I'm told it will help to let the emotions out. I havent really cried much when Im home I'm just scared that if I start crying at home I will never stop.
