"I prefer to think of it as a tornado - emotions swirling all around, and every second or minute or hour, some different feeling or horrible thought or wonderful memory gets thrown out.  And we have to deal with it, no matter what it is.…"

"The "whole mess is surreal" that is the perfect description.  They say there are 5 stages of grief : "Denial & Isolation", Anger, Bargaining, Depression, Acceptance. These stages don't happen in any particular order…"

Another week...

And yet another week without my dear husband.  This makes six weeks since he passed. This is the worst time keeping ever. So unreal; such a time warp. I'm brought to tears when I have to say my name.  Just saying my last name brings the fact that I'm his widow right to front of my thoughts. I'm terrified to meet new clients.  To have the inevitable questions about what my husband does, or about my marital status.  You know the small talk that will now have me melt down.

"I hate that you have to be here too ashleynicole8378. What a sweet post. I'll share my fondest memories of my husband.   His personality - always telling a joke, making people laugh, his off color sense of humor, his appropriate responses…"

"I know exactly how you feel.  I'm just 5 weeks into this hell, and I'm afraid of the future.  I too have vowed not to drink, or take drugs to get through this.  I know for a fact my husband would do the same if the tables…"

"Sunday mornings are the worst for me.  We usually enjoyed lazy mornings, not in a rush to do anything, but enjoy each other.  My husband passed away at 7:30 on a Sunday morning.  It's now a very somber time for me with lots of…"

"Hi Larry - sorry you are here with us.  I lost my husband January 29 from a brain aneurysm.  It was completely unexpected, and so sudden.  There were no warning signs at all.  How you can be talking with your love one second, and…"

"Yes guilloma, the drastic change is hard to cope with.  I'm trying to fill my time with things now.  I imagine I can keep myself busy, but I'll always be lonely without my sweet husband.  It's striking me how good the…"

"Thank you @Froggie4635.  I needed to hear that.  I know my husband saw me as a strong woman.  I can make it through this, even if I don't know how.  Thinking of him watching me does help. "

"My husband passed away January 29 from a brain aneurysm at age 45.  It was so unexpected, and still quite unbelievable to me.  We sold all our property, and started full-time RVing in September of last year.  It was a lifetime dream…"
