Hi everyone, Unfortunately my husband's death in Feb. means this group is growing.Truly a case of 'bigger is NOT better'.
So glad for this site because it gets very difficult putting on the 'Everything's okay mask'. Thank-you everyone for your honesty. It really helps.
Even though our husbands are no longer with us we can still say thank you. I've learnt to acknowledge all the things I now realize Bruce did for me. As a couple we did for each other out of love never expecting anything in return. This is another part of the griefing process as we not only grieve for our husband the person but also for the husband the gardener, fix it man, etc. There is so much pain and I never realized I could cry so many tears. We all will miss our loved one everyday for the rest of our life. Someday we will hopefully have learnt to manage the pain. In the meantime I am so grateful to have found this incredible community. I no longer feel so alone.
Personally, I would just take holding his hand right now. Not even speaking just the knowledge that he was still here would be SO good. I can't believe it has only been a little over a month my husband has been gone. It seems like so much longer. The days are just dragging on endlessly. I cleaned the garage, I don't even know what some of the stuff in there is for...it is so overwhelming and depressing.
Lisa, I know what you mean. Saturday I "worked" on the lawnmower because it hasn't been used in over a year. I am trying to get back to doing my own lawn. I was proud that I changed the oil, filter and spark plug (it's still not working) but part of me was sad because if Mitch was here and feeling ok he would have been doing it or we would have been in there together.
Sometimes I have those "what if" thoughts of what if he had never gotten sick or "what if" he had gotten better.
Yesterday was another first, my 11 year olds first day in middle school, he seem to do fine but his mother was always the one to take him.
