Hi DarleneP, I am very sorry for your loss. This is such a difficult journey, but this website can be very helpful.
I was reading one of your posts about avoidance in terms of photos, clothes, etc. and it really struck a chord with me. I lost my sweetie on October 16, 2012 and I still haven't wanted to deal with her clothes and other belongings. I do tend to look past her pictures but that is changing slowly.
I wish you all my best. Feel free to write any time. Bruce
Hi DarleneP, so sorry for your loss. Sounds very recent, right. Lost my wife just before last Thanksgiving. It was sudden, while I was out of town. I was more frightened than anything else at that stage for me. Everyone has their own way of coping. It's only been 4 and half months since her death, and yet I made some good progress. I try to stay busy, use my friends comfort (no family here in CA), give yourself some distractions to keep your mind from dwelling too much. For me, life has gotten better but with some more recovering to do. I grew up in Phoenix, so pretty familiar with the Prescott area. My parents had retired there for about ten years in the late eighties/early nineties. It's a nice place. I just joined Widville on Wednesday, so I'm trying to learn all the tech stuff. I'll learn it in time. Welcome, I hope you find the peace that you need.
Hello DarleneP, so sorry for your loss. My wife died 1/3 of 2013. Im sorry you didnt get to have more time with your husband exploring the west. When I was a kid, I visited my dad a couple of summers. He lived in Prescott and then in Mayer (small town close to Prescott Valley). I always thought it was really beautiful around there.
Welcome to Widville, DarleneP. I am truly sorry for your loss, and hope you find caring support and friendship here.
