Rules of Recovery
Cry as often as you need to, and don?t feel guilty about it.
Talk about it as often as it helps. Even if that means calling someone daily.
Sleep in. You need your rest to physically AND emotionally recover.
Take naps. (like I said before?.)
Pick up some sappy romantic comedies. A good laugh can make a big difference!
Have that relaxing cup of coffee, tea, or wine.
If you don?t want to leave your house, don?t. You aren?t obligated right now.
If you don?t want visitors, tell them no thanks. You aren?t obligated right now!
Phone answering machines are wonderful things. If you don?t want to talk, let it pick up for you.
Don?t beat yourself up with the ?what ifs?. You did everything you could.
Understand that the grief will take a long tome to get through, and that?s completely NORMAL.
Accept help from family and friends with the housework and shopping when you are ready. You are still recovering!
Eat a healthy balanced diet, and stay hydrated. It?s good for your whole being.
Remember you are loved and not alone
