I still message my husband every day as I still have his phone not to phone but I can WhatsApp by WiFi. This is my message today 15 months on:
“Woke up crying today doll I’m so unhappy without you even though I try to put on a brave face throughout the day. That morning wake up realising another day without you just breaks my heart. Love you & miss you so much xxx”
This is a daily struggle that first waking moment when you realise you’re on your own. I then have to find the strength to face the day. I find writing to him or in a journal my feelings, it helps being able to write it down, not keeping it all inside.
