My husband was 40 and I was 38, when he passed. This was in late 2017 and I still find life extremely hard, especially with the boys. I think having children makes the processing take longer. You haven't got time to take care of yourself, and a lot of friends and family disappear. What I found helpful was returning to my work/study. I couldn't do a lot to begin with, but I've slowly built up stamina. My routine keeps me going. Mostly I feel like I'm only just functioning. People tell me I've grieved, but I know haven't. I will properly when the children are older. I do think I've moved past the shock and also the questioning (my husband died of aortic dissection and I questioned how it could've happened for a long time) stage. I think it goes in waves. Some days and months are better than others. It's important to remember to laugh at those private jokes. I kept them secret, something for just me and him.Sometimes I'm drawn to a magazine cover or a sign or something and it's like he's letting me know he still remembers them.
