I am glad you are finding some help with the counseling. I haven’t tried it myself so don’t know what it entails.
I totally agree with you that losing your husband / wife / partner is a completely different ball game to any other loss. I was not anticipating this level of grief - well, I wasn’t anticipating losing Richard at all in fact; he was so fit and apparently healthy. You have had a lot of grief to contend with due to the anticipation. Take it one day at a time and allow whatever your mind and body feel the need for.
Hello I do hope today went fairly alright and the pain wasn’t too great.It is very painful negotiating these special days on top of the daily feeling of loss .I shouldn’t I know but I have been feeling bitterness .Why my husband had to be taken when he always tried to help everyone and never complained with having been stricken down with an incurable disease.
I am desperately trying to overcome these negative reactions
Thank you for your support
Hi Ann, yes the shock was unbelievable but as you say, we take each little step to come to terms with it. I am lucky I still have one daughter living at home so I don’t have that empty house to come home to which so many others on here have to deal with.
