"It's been six months since my husband died unexpectedly. That will seem like a long time to those of you who just lost your partner, but it feels like yesterday. The real pain didn't start until the shock wore off, about 3 months after his…"
"I am 4 weeks in and I can't stop thinking about what happens, if anything, when you die. I'm the opposite of you, I used to believe that there was a life afterward, but now I'm having trouble thinking that there is anything after…"
i lost my husband August 12 of this year. I agree with all comments below. Some days I’m ok and then other days hit hits me that I’ll never hear his voice again or those goofy names he used to come up with for me. It’s then…"
"I’m so sorry to for your loss. I’m finally starting to sleep better but it’s taken almost 2 months. It was recommended to me to either drink Sleepy Time Tea Extra or take Exedrin or Tylenol PM. The tea doesn’t do much for me…"

"Absolutely know how you feel. November 12 will be 3 months for me. This whole thing just came like a bolt of lightning. It was just Bill and I, no kids. We were 5 days short of celebrating our 28th year of marriage. He was my best friend. It’s…"

I'm so sorry. Yes, it's really painful and I have learned in less than 2 months that some days are ok, then turn for the worse, then back and forth. It's a wide range of emotions that affect you mentally and physically. I still try to find ways to get through the each day. Yesterday, I was ok for the most part, then right before I went to sleep, I broke down into a very deep sorrowful cry.
I have began communicating with others which helps. I talk mostly to strangers but it helps.
