"I am 7 years 8 months and 12 days out and yes counting the months and days. Year 7 feels like years one and two combined and it sucks. We all regress at some point then pull back   out of it. It does become softer"

Hi!  I lost my hubby on March 20th of 2018.  I relate to what you are saying. I cried last night...  I am done with this new life, this widow thing.  I want our life back.  I told him he needs to come home.
