"Fury, I feel for you and actually felt/feel the same way.  I scream sometimes when I am driving home to release some of the anger/rage.  I hope this passes.  I am thinking of you and hope you find some peace.  I sure do!"

You know what I was irritated about the most? People telling me that I will get through this and find love again. "You are young and you have the rest of your life ahead of you. I know you loved him, but you will find love again."

Say what?!!  how do they know what I need? Who designated these people to determine what happens in MY life? It just makes me so angry that they would brush off what we meant to each other without a second thought. Most of my friends tell me that those people are talking because they don't know what else to do or say. They just yammer on and on to make themselves feel more comfortable about an uncomfortable subject. 

I think about my husband every day......he is the white noise in my head when I am not concentrating on anything else. So I do believe that you are having visions. In fact, I am a little jealous that you have such vivid thoughts and i have not been able to do that. I even prayed for him to come to me in my dreams. He used to have such vivid, realistic dreams that he would tell me about. It was comical, almost like a made for TV movie script at times!

I understand how you feel and it has been 408 days for me and I cry myself to sleep 5 out of 7 days a week.
