So,  it has been 2 1/2 years since my dear wife passed. I talk to her everyday - and I cry every day. 

I have seen grief grief counselors and all they tell me is that it should pass.

i am taking antidepressants and it seems to stem the emotional tide only somewhat.

But  I can’t shake it. Is it normal to be grieving and crying every day still? Thx.for your thoughts.

Hello Miket

I am also 2 1/2 years out from my husbands death most days I still cry and miss him terribly. It has gotten better but there are still so many reminders and emotions

that I experience on a daily basis.

I do not have the answer of when it will stop. I hope that with time we will move on in many ways. I am in a grief support group which helps tremendously.

I have learned to take one day at a time and hope that the future will lead me to a better place.

I wish the same for you and everyone else in this group. We may not feel like it but we are all survivors.

Take care of yourself.


Yeah this is normal.   My journey was different, but I know another guy in a different support group that this took a little over 3-years to to go away.  

Take care.
