Drifting

I just can't seem to get back on track or into a building groove. It just isn't working any more. I go into the garage and anything that doesn't work right just sets me back and I'm almost paralyzed by a deep depression. You would think six months after losing our son would be enough time to get it together but it seems to just get worse by the day. It really sucks. And I'm sick of it. I used to be good at fixing things but I can't fix this.

Hang in there Jim. Things sort of heal on their own schedule. I too often get annoyed at the lack of speed with which things sometimes move. Take it easy and be good to yourself. Parts of life's journey just plain suck, but it's a long fascinating journey with many wonders to come. Be patient with yourself. Spring always comes.
Take care
Be good to yourself

I think it's natural to take time to grieve, and the more attached you are, the longer it takes.

I've been in the same boat as you, depressed and lacking motivation after a loss. The only thing that worked for me was forcing myself to pick a small project and sticking to it. Otherwise I'd just drift from one unfinished thing in frustration to another.

Keep your chin up, we admire your courage and I'm thankful you've found a new home for the site.

Thanks for the comments and email. Good advice for sure and appreciated. I especially like the "pick one small project and stick to it approach".
