Don't grieve alone; 14,000 members and growing
My husband passed away a little over a week ago. I cannot imagine EVER getting over it. I think maybe someday I will find some new kind of normal where I can maybe exist but right now I am like you are- the pain is so bad and it's so hard to get sleep and go through a normal day. Worse yet- if you are like me then you have to return to work and go on with things. My thoughts are with you Pamela- I wish I could send you your love back to you.
It is the same for me. Have you seen a doctor about your inability to sleep? That does play some small part in your inability to do everyday tasks, and it's one part that you might be able to do something about.
