I don’t think I’ve ever been this sad in my whole life. I can’t eat, I can’t sleep and I’m shaky. Even Suzy Shrink is sad, even she, the queen of no emotions, can’t hide it.
Every day when I get dressed, I keep reaching for black. I just don’t want any color in my life – everything is black everywhere. I take the black car; I choose black sunglasses because I have black circles under my eyes.
How is it even possible that going to a wedding could cause such grief and anguish? The guys that jumped into the pool all want to kill themselves because this all happened from acting stupid. And, sometimes I want to kill them! WHY did it have to be Alex and not one of them? Deep in my heart I know how mean that is but I just can’t help it. The six of them have known each other since about the 6th grade and still act like that at times. When we got married, it was like I married ALL of them, a package deal.
I am sick of people around me, I just want to be alone with Alex right now. Instead I have to make small talk with all these people I barely know and the close friends are just lost for words, which makes me feel even worse. The staff has been really nice about all the visitors but I see that it gets disruptive at times even though only two at a time are allowed. I’d rather talk to strangers than people I know; I don’t know why, maybe it’s safer? Safe? From what? From the truth?
I sit for hours in this room just taking it all in. Thank God for iPADS because there are times that I feel it’s the only contact I have with the outside world. Hum, don’t want to deal with the “real” people, just the “imaginary” ones and even they seem to have disappeared.
My beautiful, handsome, witty and clever Alex, where have you gone? Will you be coming back? When?
I just realized that tomorrow is another weekend – it’s been 3 weeks and it seems like a lifetime. Each day just blending into the next, I stare into the vast space and wish I had a crystal ball. All this money, this charmed life I’ve been privileged to lead, yet, I feel like have nothing right now.
I’m only writing this out of complete and utter boredom; sorry Suzie, I am not finding documenting my thoughts to be cathartic in any way at all.
