It’s finally over

My Moms wake or viewing was last night.
I managed to survive.
This afternoon was the funeral and I also survived.
Both were beautiful occasions of remembrance to her, supported by her dear friends and family.

I was dreading the funeral but glad I made it through without even having to take a benzo.

It’s a relief that it’s over now.

My Moms spirit lingers on!

I’m happy you are holding up well. It is hard losing a parent, especially a mother. May you continue to hold together through the mourning.

I found a funeral is surprisingly beautiful. It’s a nice way to say good bye.

It was a nice way to say goodbye.
Surprisingly I’m holding it together pretty well.
Maybe that’s because she did a lot of struggling towards the end especially and now I know she’s at peace.

In a couple of days I may go back down to 4mg of risperidone.

I’ll see how things go.

I think it’s safe to cut back down on my risperidone dose.
My doctor said that the 5mg was temporary.

I’ve started to slowly taper down to 4.5mg and I’ll stay at 4.5mg for about 3 days total, then go to my regular dose of 4mg.

I’m so sorry for your loss, I’ll say a prayer for her if that’s okay, if not then I’ll just send some positive vibes your way.

I’m glad you made it through the ceremony. I remember giving the eulogy at my Grandmas funeral and I almost broke down, but barely made it through. Losing a mom is ten times harder.

Right now it’s hard, but one day in the future you’ll remember a fond moment, or something small will make you think of her, and you’ll smile. The missing never goes away, but we look back with fond memories as time goes on.
