Shopping to feel better

October 4th, 2009 at 11:05 pm

I know it isn't healthy, and can lead down a bad road, but lately I have been feeling really horrible and have the urge to shop.

The first anniversary of my mom's death is only a few weeks away and it has been getting more difficult to deal with it. I just want something to take my mind off it (something happy- school is stressful right now). I should be looking forward to my second anniversary with fiance, which is a few days before the aforementioned anniversary, but I can't get excited about it.

I haven't gone shopping, aside from grocery shopping, yet. Fiance has been really great- he's been trying to come up with different ways to get my mind off it and is being a total sweetheart.

I am annoyed with my accounting homework. It is online homework, with the website checking your answers. It gives you three chances to get the homework right and then you are marked wrong. In one problem we had to do an income statement and we had to calculate the income tax expense. I am 99.99% sure I got the right number for it but the website kept telling me I was wrong. I think the website made a mistake so I am going to talk to the teacher tomorrow.

That's about it. I may or may not be updating much. School and everything else is keeping me really busy.

    Hello. One year anniversaries of someone's passing can be really difficult for a lot of people. I was one of them. Someone suggested to me that I plan the anniversary day in full, and visualize it every day for the time leading up to it. Then just let the day unfold being completely gentle with yourself. In my case I imagined being on a deck overlooking a body of water and hoisting a drink to toast her (my Mom). It wasn't exactly like the vision but the deck, water, wine, and toast were there. It was great for closure. I hope this helps. Please be gentle with yourself!
