I still remember the day that it happened. My husband passed away in a freak bicycle accident, and I found myself completely alone. I didn't know what to do, who to talk to, or how to handle my emotions. I was simply devastated. The next few weeks were a complete blur, until my friend mentioned that she wanted me to talk with a professional about my feelings. I agreed, but I was worried about how difficult it would be to talk about the problem. However, contrary to my assumptions, the therapist was easy to talk to, and actually taught me how to help myself. I was able to overcome my challenges, and I know that you can overcome yours by learning more about self help.
