    Hello fellow grievers. Has any one had advice on how to clear mental fog. The hit by a 40 mph bus should clear, right? This has been five months. Focus, concentration, memory. The horrible anxiety ridden white knuckle day's not so much. Put the revved mind and no place channel this speed is bother some. In my old life I would read. That is so hard to do. The exercise really helps, yoga is great. The 5-HTP serotonin supplement not long enough to tell. Thanks in advance. Sleep needs to improve a lot.

    As evidence above. Does any one have advice........ revved mind with no place...... OK I may have the answer to my own question. This was visiting with a guy running the laundry mat. His dad passed and they were tight. My guy got to counseling and was advised to head off those racing thought from the first time they start. I will go back and chat with him on the , How? I will let my brain dig a hole to China . But who needs that deep a hole ?

    Thanks Griefic. That does help. The main point that grieve is a full time job. I had not heard it expressed that way. That really gives you permission. One grief book Healthy Healing that I have sited a few times while hear. The author was so intimate in telling us the readers there are two things that we must never forget. One is that you are going to get overwhelmed and to back off a bit when that happens and second is to never stop trying. She may have met in the context of healthy exercise and endorphins but in all ways, I suspect. A surprise today was seeing a specialist about a bulging back disc and the resulting sciatica. I had not met this doctor before but she was all about talking about grief. I had put this information on the form but really it was she that ran with it. We talked for a guilty of a long time. I say guilty because it is rare to have had so much time with a physician. Wonderful experience. I think we must feel companion for our medical providers. I told her that my college room mate was a family practice doctor and would have trained in the late seventy's. The concept then was one patient per hour. They are seeing fifteen to twenty per day. Gone is the ability to educate. I am not sure how but could we have more influence on a broken medical system.? I should start a new thread.

    I have actively added all sorts of proactive habits. They all helped but maybe just time to recover. It takes as long as it takes. Getting better and grateful for that!!! I do not think Kay would have wanted a basket case. But I still just love her and so grateful for our time. That time will continue in a constructive way. We always cared about others and tried to show respect to all in the path.

    Not sure but splitting wood at least tires you out for a good nights sleep. Don't do this often. Just helping a friend.
