Struggling after 2 years

I lost my husband more or less 2 years ago. I thought I had got through the awful stages of grief and was starting to feel like me again. I have recently been let down badly by a friend and today is hubby’s birthday. I now feel I am right back in the depth of grief again. Does it ever get better?


@Craftyval hi . It’s almost two years for me and doesn’t seem to be getting any easier. Yes I go to work, and still put an act on Infront of my adult kids . So I look like I’m coping , but life is so pointless and empty now . And the loneliness and longing for my husband and happy life is so …there are no words strong enough to explain it . I have found a lot of help on this site . Chatting to people who do really know how it feels .xtake carex


It’s two years nine months today for me. It does get easier as you gradually learn to live along side grief. ,l do sleep and eat okay these days but some days I struggle but I have made a sort of new life, not one I wanted though. I am lucky to have the support of family and friends but sometimes that’s just not enough. I wish all of us get the support we need and this site goes a long way to help us.
