  • i would start to assemble (on paper) a support group of family & friends. The time alone will be diffciult but if you have people to help you it won't be as bad. Reach out and do not be afraid to ask for help.

  • It is all about keeping busy. Throw yourself into your hobby. Get the kids enrolled in some type of classes and just keep moving. Surround yourself with people if you can. And make sure that you get out of the house.

  • You have to keep busy. And Make sure you have a good group of ppl you can go too. Its going to be hard but you can do it. Find things for you and the kids to do together. Making care packages for him will also help.
