I am sorry for the loss and grief you must be going through. Going back to work is daunting so I had to provide ways to help me through that rough phase. When the emotions got too bad I went to the rest room to compose myself. I found having protein snacks or meals helped my energy levels and emotional stability. Exercising like walking at lunch gave me time away from the office and invigorated and energized me.

Good luck with the work thing. A grief support group also helped because I did not want to talk about my losses at work. Online support helped to

Right now we are at the hospital and he has been taken off of the ventilator because the doctors say there is no chance of recovery. He doesnít seem to want to give up though, but he will never be able to live a normal life or even function at all.

I just needed to write this down. There is nothing anyone can do, but he is still fighting. But there is no longer anything to fight for as he is basically gone. I donít know why he did it. I just wish he hadnít. Iím not mad at him, just broken.
Im sorry! My brother in law committed suicide in 2010.

That great advice!
