Hi. This is my first time on the site. my husband tried to take his life four weeks ago by an overdose of insulin. At first we were told that he would not make a week. But he has slowly awakened and is now off the ventilator as well as starting to respond to us by nodding and shaking his head.
My emotions are all over the place as my life has been turned upside down. I never know what to expect when going to the hospital to visit him, some bad days when we thought he had pneumonia to good days when he gave his first smile.
I'm not expecting any answers here, the doctors keep telling us that they can't predict anything. But I would just like to share my fears, hopes and emotions in a safe place. I have the support of many wonderful friends and family but I go home at night to an empty house (except the dogs) and worry about how I will pay the mortgage and the bills and what the future holds for us. At one point I was choosing funeral songs and now it seems that my husband may have some sort of future, boy this is one hell of a rollercoaster.
I welcome any words of wisdom !!! and just a friendly ear or two.
