I lost my husband (common law) on 1/26 and Vintage summed it up, I cry and hate night time. I can't sleep and have no focus. But most of the time I am managing and holding it together. I worry that I seem to be doing reasonably well and that this is just shock, that the bottom may fall out any second and I am going to have a complete meltdown. I am heading to New Orleans to spread his ashes on the 25th of Feb (we will do it on the 26th, the one month anniversary) and I am worried about being in a city we loved so much with so many memories. Healing wishes to everyone here.
(((HUGS))) to both Melanda and vintage56. Shock and numbness are to be expected and normal in the first few months. It has happened to all of us here. You are in good company with others who are walking the walk with you. Take it slowly, remember to breathe, and be gentle with yourself. I'm two years out and times can still be tough, but the waves are easier to ride now.
Sorry you are both here, yet welcome to a loving group.
I lost my husband on 1/16 and I feel like Melanda - I think I am still numb. I cry sometimes but am able to hold it together most of the time.
I lost my husband on January 18th unexpectedly and I really dont know what I am feeling. I feel like no one around me understands my pain. I have cried very little but I have alot of anxiety. I know I'm in shock. I cant even stay in my own home. Hoping this group and forum help me deal with my grief.
mixelated, Sorry for your loss and the reason you are here. Glad you found us. In a few days it will be two years for me and most of it is easier, but not all. Doug, who posted first, is coming up to his one year angel-versary. He is correct--this is a welcoming and safe place. (((HUGS))) to you.
I lost my husband just before Christmas, so it's only been six weeks for me. I thought I'd stop in the 2015 group too.
