Thanks for keeping us updated. I’m glad to hear you’ve reached out to a support group, after everything you’ve been through and the strength you have shown through it all, the Zoom session will no doubt be taken in your stride. You can feel comforted by the fact that the other members of the group probably feel the same way too. Maybe even share with them that the session makes you feel a bit anxious.
It is great that you are still connecting with Jeremy through his photos, clothes and music and I love that he reassured you of what a wonderful home environment you created for him. You should feel so proud of the love and support you provided for Jeremy.
Often we are better at looking after those around us than ourselves! I’m wondering whether your appetite has returned and you are getting the nutrition that supports your mental health too? Sometimes lacking certain vitamins and minerals can contribute to anxiety, like the social anxieties you spoke of, so ensuring you’re eating and sleeping well can help reduce these.
May is still a while away, so I’d encourage you to continue checking in with us here to let us know how you are doing, share memories and reach out to other members on the forum too.
We are always here for you.
