All of the big anniversaries with Arlene fall between her birthday, May 7th and July 6th. Early June is a killer for me, June 2nd is when she was found unresponsive in her room in the rehab, heart attack and stroke, and she passed on June 10th, yesterday was 4 years. This year, the "season" hit me harder I think than all of the other years, to the point where I was getting physically ill, nerves, stomach and digestive problems. Dammit I'm in year five, this shouldn't be hitting me like this now, the dates are getting worse and not better. WTF!

We all have similar feelings as we come to our loved one's birthday, anniversaries and special days. Mine is September with Ray's birthday and Father's Day a week apart and the anniversary of his death a week later. I always loved September prior to his death.

Don, I thought year 4 was the worst, but year 5 has not gotten a lot better.  I have the same physical feelings you have almost every day.  I don't have much support.  My grown children have turned against each other and that makes it so much harder.  I feel like now I've also lost my family.  In a way, the grief process has just started over again.  I know you'll get through this.  I can't say the same for myself.
