    1yr post anniversary

    Sept 23, 2011 WAS a beautiful fall day (no pun intended) a quick 18ft fall from a roof & everything is different, but I am looking forward I had a few months awhile back I gave up quit PT became depressed because "things didn't work " but I am moving forward with what I have, for my anniversary I went elk hunting with my son... its been a long strange ride that felt more like 5 yrs because of everything I learned or had to change.

    That first year is a monster. Going out w/ your son was great. You need to keep busy or this winter will be long indeed. Hang in there.

          Thanks everyone was not sure how to deal with the "anniversary " but it is a day one never forgets and after seeing & reading how others here deal with their day decided not to hide from it..I am not looking forward to winter, next life I am going to be rich so I can go south & fish in the sunshine during the winter instead of plowing snow for the neighbors as recreation...

                  It will be 4 years for my hubby Oct 8th. Won't be as bad as the first year (surviving several weeks ICU and months out of area rehab) or the second-getting on with life with and huge respiratory 2 mo hospital setback and learning how to live with high level SCI........
                  But these bright fall days and unusual warm weather bringing back the vibes of that day......Hang in there. I hear it gets better.

                    It is a day none of us will forget because it changed us completely. Sounds like you are moving on with your life now, because depression loves to sneak around the corner. Accepting what we wish would go away is always on my mind. It will be 2 years for me Nov 4, and I still struggle, but for some reason I was chosen to still remain on this earth and I spend my time being grateful and sharing with great children who may not totally understand what I go thru, and grandchildren who just love me because I am Nana..

                      what hurts the most is thinking what if, or why did I have to, or why can't I change this. those feelings emerge, but go away and you just realize, 'this is life now' and move on with it. there are worse out there and everyone has those feelings at least once in their life, some deeper than others.

                        I try very hard to not let this completely control me but oh yea the what ifs & whys wonder in now & then, from day one I told myself lets stay positive and push, push, push but a couple bad weeks, pain flare, LOSS of movement instead of gain right at the same time as the anniversary of my sons suicide and I caved to the depression monsters for a couple months but only those who know me very close probably realized it but one day I crawled back out time to move on I have fish to catch!! Easier said then done as we all know.
