Today is 18 months since Janet passed. Fortunately for me  there are no "what ifs" or regrets concerning our relationship of 35 years and I still add time each onto the relationship since it will never end, next year will be 36 years.

I am new to this site, however I share you feeling of despair.  Almost 4 years and I am miserable.  Cannot look at pictures of my husband. Sounds like you are living hell on earth, I know I am.
