On Dec 12, 2008 I was engaged to be married in May 2009. When I woke up this morning I found my fiancee dead on the couch. I went into shock and don't remember much for 4 days. I felt that my heart had been ripped to piecies. I have not gotten a good nights sleep in the last 2 years it seems I stay awake so this won't happen again. I'm also scarred that I may not wake up in the morning. This even sounds crazy to me. I do have flashbacks of finding her dead although these have decressed lately. I seem to be appathetic towards simple functions like paying bills, I'm also totally and permantley disabled with failed back syndrome which doesn't leave me the option to put myself into work. It has been just over 2 years and now I have a very kind and caring women who came into my life 3 months ago. I didn't ask her to date me she asked me. I find myself stuck in the past which deepens my depression. I have chronic severe long term depression which makes every thing that much more difficult. Thanks to anyone who could advise me on this.View Thread
