Hi I lost my wife just a couple weeks before Christmas, so technically...was still it ok to post in this group. Its been 7 weeks. Should I just post in the 2013 group?

Hi saltypearl - I don't use Facebook, but someone actually did block their MIL, she was also a member on this website!!

Kayro - I'm now approaching 14 months, the counting doesn't really stop, but the span of time that goes by makes it seem that you've stopped counting. I'm so sorry you're on this journey, but I'm glad you've found this site, where you'll find people who have gone through this and can give you the support that sometimes seems elusive unless you've been dealt this card. In time, and unfortunately, you'll also share your own experience just like others shared with me. This site was such a blessing to me.

Let me know if there is anything I can do

KayRo:  I don't count I feel like if I do count then I'll completely break.  His mom counts and posts it on FB all the time.  I may block her soon cause I can't deal with her grief on top of mine.  I know she means well, but her path isn't mine and it isn't helping.

Braykyemom - this is the about same time it hit me last year, when all is said and done and md you're left with moving forward. BAM! It comes out of nowhere, there is nothing to do or say other then I wish you peace in the coming weeks. I also got mad at my husband for leaving me and our kids, for not taking care of his health...over the past year all that has subsided leaving a ache that I just deal with... You are young, not sure how old the babies are, but take care of yourself, lean on people, friends, family, people here too on this site. It's not an easy journey but I'm a year out and I'm doing ok. I'll take ok for now. You'll be ok too I promise. Being a widow sucks.
