Drowning In Immense Sadness

It was a year in March that I lost my husband after having him in my life for close to fifty years. I have grasped the reality that he will not be walking through the door, but I can not get a grip on the immense sadness I feel all the time. I know there is a fine line of grieving to get through it and living in it. I feel that I am walking that fine line with on foot in each side. I don't dare tell my family how consumed I am with sadness, they would worry and begin to suffocate me and I don't…See More

sis commented on Ozzy turtle's blog post I need some advice
"Those friends actually feel that they are being helpful, but grieving is a process that is much like fingerprints, and is different for each of us. I don't know if they have experienced the loss of a spouse, but until you do there is no way to…"

sis commented on Julie's blog post Trying to find my way,
"Did you mean July 2018? I lost my husband March 2018 and still cry a lot, although I do smile more when I think of him than I used to. I have learned to dismiss those that think they have all the answers for me. I realize that grief is different for…"

I'd Like to see him once again...it's a desire so intense and so impossible...and talk to him and say all the words that i didn't say...i saw him in my dreams sometimes but he never say a word...i think evolution did something wrong...we do have a stronger heart to accept the hard laws of death, separation without return...instead we suffer and we know no one in the sentire universe can do nothing at all....so the only chance we have is go on with our life accepting the most cruel reality... Live without our  love?!!? Goodnight dear SIS..in Milan is almost midnight...i hope find some solace but i'm still in desert with my broken heart ciao
