I happened upon this website and just have to share it because it is brutally honest about the widow's/widower's loss and longing for skin-to-skin contact.

I hope the link works.

Peace.

MissDave (Laura) - So glad that the article resonated with you. Reading it made me realize that I was not alone and that I was not abnormal.   Peace and blessings! ~Mariposa

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!  I just read that blog and it hit me right in the face!  That's exactly what I'm dealing with...skin hunger...that longing to be touched.  But not just by anyone, by my David.  I thought there must be something wrong with me because I was feeling a real loss of intimacy.  David just died 41 days ago, and here I am, thinking about our sex life and missing it and longing for it.  Guess I'm not that crazy after all...just one of the grieving.  Thank you again!!
