I understand exactly what you mean being down and wanting to give up.

Glad you are better,,,embrace the peaceful days and ride out the bad ones. I am having way fewer bad ones, but I did wake up in the middle of the night having a panic attack last night..memories of last year were strong,

Five months is (unfortunately) really early in the healing process. As you might have heard, if you do all the work, read the books, talk to the shrinks, ... it takes two years. There are no shortcuts, no magic pill, no time travel.

I think you are right about facing it head on...letting it completely engulf you to let it go...I have not done that yet...just don't feel like I can handle it yet... DDay a little over 1 year.
