Polly my heart hurts for you. I to am 50 and my sweet husband woulh have turned 52 on June 13. He past away March 7 just 8 days before my birthday. I stilll find myself in a fog and find I'm just going through the motions of the day. This site has at least helped me realize there are others going through the same thing. Which is bittersweet. I wish we could be in here for a sweet reason. Hugs to you

What you say here about your day sounds like my miserable daily schedule:

I can relate to what you are saying: the activities that Joseph and I loved to do together are now very painful to do on my own. But it seems that you have started taking baby steps in the right direction by starting to run again.…"
That is quite an accomplishment! My husband was my running partner and we did a lot of charity runs together. My last run was 2 months after he died and dedicated the run to him. Since then I have tried running alone but it was too…"
