I'm sorry for your loss..It's been 2 yrs since I lost my husband of 22 yrs. I have an 8 and a 17 yr old. I can only say that when I was where you are, I didn't think i could breathe my guts seemed to be exposed to the world. I was sick to my stomach for about 8 months. But, as everyone told me, time is healing me. I can now focus on the blessings and not the horrors. But that takes time. I can only advise to be good to yourself, do what ever makes you happy. This site helps a lot, just reading how others are feeling the same thing makes it feel less empty and alone. God bless you and your kids. You will make it though.
