One Year. - December 4th 2009, 07:29 PM

Dare I say it...
It's been a year.

Well technically it'll be a year on Wednesday, December 9th....

Wow I never say that. I can't even say it out loud. I just say "the day". It's like I just can't handle saying it's been a whole year...

I am going to therapy on the day at 1 pm...Then I'm probably going to go see my friend at her school and visit my old youth worker success coach person as well. Mom and dad have given me the okay to not go to school. It's a personal choice and I've decided to stay home and go to therapy and stuff. I also plan on spending the day doing some praying and just being with God.

It's like I want the day to be really sad and stuff...becuase I feel like if I'm not sad, I don't care. I know that's not true...but yeah.

I'm also taking my guitar to therapy with me to make it a little easier. I'm also taking Bernie, my giant monkey. I'm also going to take my candle holder that I made at group therapy once...and my counsellor and I are going to light a candle for baba while we talk...I think baba would like that.

I'm really sad. I miss her so much.

Hey Jennifer,
Try to spend the day celebrating your baba's life rather than being sad. You don't have to be sad to care. Sometime's it is about appreciating the time that you did get to spend with the person who meant a lot to you.
I think maybe not going to school this time might let you reflect on things better. Obviously there are going to be times where you have to go to school or work but the first couple of years after loosing someone you love are definately the most difficult.
This year is going to be hard but it's good you're spending most of the day around other people rather than alone, just make sure you give yourself some time to reflect on everything and just have a little peace and thought.
If you need to speak, just give me a message.
