I just started my second year of grief. The only difference is it is not as fierce this time. I do not think I am going to die. I realize I will live another year through the grief without him. Grief will not kill you. It only feels like it will.

I started my second year in March. I don't know what I was expecting, but I feel like it's worse. I seem to cry all the time now. I can only assume the fog has lifted, things that needed to be done have been taken care of, and reality has smacked me in the face. I am so grateful that I stumbled across this site where I can see that I am not losing it, but rather working through rough times like others are. I agree that "grief will not kill you, it only feels like it will". God Bless

I hope that one day I can say the same.  Right now it stings so bad but I am fresh into my grieving process.  This upcoming 21st will be only 3 months since my husband's passing.
