SoreEyes,first let me say how sorry I am for your loss.I see it hasn't been that long since your wife passed,and you are still in what I call shock mode.This is a rough time questioning everything from why her and why now.This seems to go on ,at least for me through the first year.As I mentioned in my earlier comment.You will constantly see,hear smell things that will bring all the hurt back.You ask if it ever gets better.Yes it does,but it takes awhile.Do you ever get over it (No)but you learn to live with it.I think of my wife every day.I have started dating again,but its a hard thing to go through,dating someone and try not to compare them to your wife.Sounds like you loved her very much and must have had a wonderful marriage.But where there is much love,there is much grief.I know its a cliché,but you litterly have to take it one day at a time.We men are taught not to cry but some evenings when I am home alone,and it still will hit me out of nowhere.I will bust into tears uncontrollable.So now I focus on my grandkids,And even thou they never met her I show them her pictures and tell them how much she loves them.Its a tough sad road you have to go down,What has helped me the most is my belief in God and my savior Jesus Christ.I know she is in a  great place,with no pain.The bible describes it as paradise.I will see her again one day.That is what helps me the most.

I too am angry at God, my husband was my best friend, e brought out the best in me.  I am seeing a grief counselor today, will it help?  I don't know.  I am missing him so much.
