The one thing I hope we all realize is that our grief - the recovery, reactions, feelings, etc - are all "normal" for the individual that's grieving, and also UNIQUE! Nobody knows exactly what we're going through, no matter how similar the circumstances may be. So don't get upset or disappointed when your recovery is taking longer or seems harder than someone else's recovery. What you're feeling is tailor-made for you and you will heal in a manner that suits you best.
The common thread that we all have is that we're still here...
It's been 1 year and 11 months since my husband was taken...killed. I have no connection to any memory ...It is unbearable...I loved this man... I adored him...yet his memory feels so far away...like it never happened... unreal...dettached...from everything...I don't even cry....why can't I cry or relive the memories...why can I not feel him...Have I gone crazy and made it up??? Is this normal???
April 17 was 2 years for me. You are normal and it does get better. AT 1 year I went throught the constant replay like you are doing, and now at the 2nd year, it's different. Hang in there, you'll get through the 1 year mark.
