I want to sleep. But when I sleep, I wake up missing him. Or I wake up on my belly and freak because I am not on my side.

I rub my belly sometimes, and have to remind myself that he's not there.

have you thought about something to help you sleep Heather? I don't want to see you get run down and exhausted, because that's going to impede your healing process.

Do you still have Marshall's urn in the house? Maybe if you put it on the table next to your bed and took a nap, you'd be able to see him as soon as you woke up.

It's really really hard, that first week especially. I felt really horrible about going to bed... I started getting really anxious and panicky when the sun set because it was almost time to go to bed, and that was when it all hit me. Trying to sleep was extremely hard. It does get easier, as days go by it's a little less of a shock when you wake up.

Of course last night I just had a really horrible night myself.

Unfortunately the sleep issues might last a while. I'm nearing 9 months into it and still have a lot of sleep issues

Ah! I have a script for Ambien, and I'd take it, but I am afraid of missing out on dreams about him. I may just have to, because my husband is concerned that grief is taking its toll on my physically, and I can see it in his eyes.

Take the rx and get a few good hours of sleep. You may have dreams, I do when I take something to help me sleep.

I have more dreams when I take something to help sleep.


I agree with Ashley, take the rx. And even if you miss out on just one night's dreams, the good sleep will help you feel better about things.
