Is anyone out there a widow or widower with teens? I lost my husband about 2 years ago. He was killed in Iraq so it was very quick and there was no adjustment period. I am just now starting to feel the effects of his death. Up until now I have been so focused on keeping my girls lives as normal as possible. I also moved and was trying to get settled in and get my house together, so that was a nice distraction for me for awhile. My oldest daughter (16) also has ADD and many emotional issues mainly from her fathers death. I have had alot of extra stress involving her for the past year. I am feeling very overwhelmed and lost. I feel as though I dont know who I am anymore. I feel like I dont fit anywhere. And I get very nervous leaving the house for very long. Any input, advice, or suggestions would be wonderful.
