"Yes the crying jags are somewhat unpredictable.  Sometimes I just have to picture my husband's face in my mind because I feel so terribly alone & in the void without him.  Sometimes it's okay to picture him but most of the…"

"I can join in all of you, dears, by saying that New Year's day & the 2 weeks or so following were the hardest yet despite the fact that my darling Greg died last fall, Oct. 12 of 2018.  The thought of starting a new year without him…"

KJPE replied to sis's discussion Love is Like the Wind, You Can't See it But You Know It's There in the group Widowed in 2018
"Crying is not the worst thing.  It can release a lot of tension & sadness.  People are so afraid that they might say something that will trigger a tear or two.  We should broadcast to everyone that we don't need them to…"

KJPE replied to Peacefrog's discussion Went to bed and didn't wake up in the group Suddenly Widowed
"I know that sound will haunt you; I can say that even after only 2.5 months, those last days and hours with him while he was comatose do not haunt me as much as they did right afterward.  "

"I am so so so sorry you had to go through this.  I have wondered 1000 times if there might have been some way I could have saved my husband's life, as he had a heart block, was able to call 911 (why wasn't I there to do that???) and…"

KJPE replied to Kmelli3 (Kate)'s discussion Feel like I am in a nightmare I can't wake up from in the group Suddenly Widowed
"Dear Kate, Your experience is not so different from mine.  My husband died on Oct. 12 so I am also newly widowed and don't have much advice.  All I can say is that I have all the same feelings you do.  I cry so many times a day,…"
