My anniversary was April 5th.  This was the first year went to work.  I am glad that the pain has subsided greatly.  I love him and miss him.  As much as I dislike having this tremendous pain in my life I am so grateful to have had a loving relationship.

I belong to another support group through WV but felt I needed this group since we are all at the same stage (roughly).  I, too, have more good days now than those dreaded bad ones.  Would love to find people who live in Colorado to meet up with for coffee and conversation.  One thing I've learned in the 5.5 years is that no matter how good your friends are, they don't really understand the mood shifts and the loneliness we feel even in a room full of people.  Great to have all of you here for mutual support.

I have to agree with Princess Warrior Widow, Barzan.

I'm also at 5.5 years.

Hi Barzan, I'm glad that you found us.  This is a supportive group.  It is always good to share with people who understand and don't judge.  I am now having more good days than bad.  That's a good thing.

Hi Barzan...everyone here is here for each other.....we all share the pain of this journey and the learning process...Bill will be gone 6 years on March 1....that is also my deceased daughter's birthday so one of my hardest through the year....a birthday and a death....I also have good days and bad.....but my bad ones are fewer and usually because I wish he was here to tell him something, help me if I;m ill,just talk...just hangout together.....I do feel happiness and peace that God has given me ....and that's a nice feeling....just wanted you to know you aren't alone here...PEACE

Hello Everyone,  I am new to your group but not new to mourning the passing of my husband and best friend on June 13th, 2011.  I have worked hard to move on step by painful step.  I have some good days and some bad.  We were such a great team through our 32 years together.  I have a great family but they cannot replace my guy.  I look forward to getting to know the people in this group and share our ups and downs.

Happy New Year. I can't believe that I have survived five New Years without my husband. The time has gone by quickly and seemed like an eternity at the same. I hope that my husband is proud of the woman I have become facing the challenges that I have experienced after he died.

I hope that we all have a peaceful year. I'm confident that we can face any challenges because we are survivors.

It is always good to be with people who get it.

Definitely agree, Princess Warrior.
