Crash Bang Wallop

It’s been over 2 years since I lost My Derek & I’d thought I was doing well, accepting that the pain will always be there but trying to live alongside it, hiding it well. Then a close friend died suddenly, similar age to my husband who was 59, went to her funeral on Friday & it all came crashing back. I could feel her husband’s pain as if I was back to my husband’s funeral. It was like reliving it all over again but I had to be strong & a support as they were both so supportive to me. It has really knocked me for six, hence the crash, bang, wallop title. The pain is always under the surface & the most we can hope for is to carry it as best we can.
Take care everyone :heart:


Oh I’m so sorry for the loss of your close friend. It doesn’t take anything to bring that pain back does it?! It’s 13 months since I lost my husband but odd things bring back that pain & sadness that sits in the pit of your stomach.
Your friend’s husband will be so grateful for your support in his grief, especially with your recent experience.
Look after each other.

Take care
Sending love

I agree any bad news seems to set you back doesn’t it. I was driving out the estate today and a funeral car was coming in. I was feeling a bit anxious because I was going out but this set my stomach anxiety into overdrive. Brought it all back about mark’s funeral
