"I still have many of my husbands clothes and personal possessions. I can't bear to part with them. I still miss and love him very much, makes me feel closer to have them near me. I have been able to get rid of some things."

Hi LC, I'm a Tennessean so your post caught my eye.  That, and the whole thing about your kids.  I lost my love, my life, in 2011 today it's hitting hard for some unknown reason.  When this happens now, I think to myself - God, it's been over 3.5 years - when will the pain subside??? I'm so lonely - have thought about dating for almost a year, but can't bring myself to join any of those onsite dating things.  I still wear my husband's robe and sweatshirts sometimes.  I must tell you that the 2nd year for me was worse than the first.  But the past 6 months (excluding the holidays) were much improved.  I went to Camp Widow last year in Tampa.  I have not registered for this year's.  I think instead of Tampa, maybe I'll wait and go to San Diego.  But I encourage you to try one of them and keep getting on this site.  It's helped me tremendously.  Take care.  Big hug to you.  Juls
