You don’t cry as much.
You can tell your story without sobbing.
You laugh start to laugh, although laughter is a bit rusty.
You have your first belly laugh.
You are aware of the outside world again.
You attend your first support group meeting.
You continue to attend support group meetings.
You want to help others.
You think about establishing a memorial.
You make a life change in honor of your loved one.
You welcome quiet.
You can be peacefully alone.
You choose to live and enjoy the miracle of life.
You remember your loved one and smile.
