An Extended One Year Anniversary

This week it’s one year since we went on holiday, which was cut short and my partner admitted into hospital. But he was in there for several weeks before he passed later in September.

I’m already sensitive to all the memories from this period a year ago - the hospital visits, the family calls, trying to keep on top of things at home, the discussions with doctors, and so much more.

This is going to be a really hard time, I don’t think there’s any way to make this less stressful.


Our anniversary is on 28th August it would be 37 years on that day.
We usually spent put anniversary in Tenerife this year i will be spending it alone.
I will try to look at photos of us go for a walk spend time in our garden his favourite place his sanctuary but in sure i will be sad that he is not there. All special days will be hard but hopefully these will be more bearable with time.
I think all of us on this forum have same or similar feelings and times of grief and pain.
We just need to talk to each other as we are not alone on this journey.
Take care

Yes, those unexpected memories can really trip you up. I even recall many years ago how the feel of the new season (autumn) brought back memories of my mum a year after she died. I think I will have a few of these in the next few weeks.
