Hi Olivia1972, I'm coming up to the one year mark next week. I still can't even believe he's gone no less one year. I joined here 3 weeks after Tom passed and I can honestly say that this site saved me. There were groups in my area but none that catered to working people. You are at such an early stage, just take a minute at a time, baby steps. I can't say it gets easier but for some reason we seem to be able to deal a little better. Hugs!
Welcome olivia1972: I'm sorry for your loss but I'm glad you found your way to this site. I hope you will find the same comfort and understanding here at Widowed Village that I have. In the beginning I just read the blogs and posts and lurked in chat. Post and join us in chat when you feel comfortable. It is nice to be among people who "Get It"
