"7 weeks is a very short distance from the initial shock.  At this point, I'd think your mind is just now trying to process the enormity of your loss.  I'm 10 months out and still doing the same things as you but to a lesser…"

"Hello Lost. I lost my husband, 56, four months ago. We, too, were married for 29 years. His passing was 3 years coming. Even knowing his disease would kill him, it did little to prepare me for the overwhelming and gut-wrenching sadness and grief. I…"

"Sorry for the loss of your husband.  Seven weeks is a very short period of time and to think you should be moving forward is very unrealistic. Grief is a process that takes a lot longer and is different for all of us. It is important to deal…"

"When your mate leaves this earth, whether it was sudden or after a lingering illness, you are deeply wounded. As in, DEEPLY. If it had been a surgery or a broken bone, no one would expect you to be totally over it in seven weeks. Those of us…"

I lost my husband of 29 years suddenly 7 weeks ago. I feel like I’m going backwards, I miss and love and grieve more every day. I still look for him everywhere. Friends and family have stopped calling and coming by. Everyone thinks I need to move on. Do more, get out. I have no motivation, to do anything. We were both retired, he for 2 years, me for 3 years. I’m so lonley sad depressed.See More

I lost my husband of 29 years suddenly 7 weeks ago.  I feel like I am grieving more every day, missing him, loving him more. I still wait for him to come home. Roll over every morning and expect him to be on his side snoring away. When he isn’t I get physical sick.  Friends and family are coming and calling less, they all think I should be moving forward more.  It’s all I can do to get thru the hours each day.See More
