I am new to the site and I am so desperately hoping that somewhere out there is an online friend who is going through the same thing and can help me feel 'normal.' My mother just passed away (12/12/07) and I am more of a mess now than the days following her death. Sadly, the same week she died I had a falling out with my closest friends leaving me with no network/support system. Although my husband tries, he is a very practicle guy and just doesn't 'get' my grief. Today he threatened to call our family doctor for depression. It has not even been a month and I am functioning...I just have days where I am so sad. Like my mother when I am nervous I get ....well we will just say a sour stomach. I have missed a couple days of work as a result. I know I am cranky...and sometimes I feel like I am numb. I can't believe I am reaching out to complete strangers for help/advice but honestly I am not sure I could be this honest with someone face to face....I hope someone will be able to relate and have some advice. (thanks for listening)

Its been two weeks and it did nothing for my lumbar ever... but it did seem to help my cervical and arm/hand pain...
