Tank you for your truly understood words. It is the words of those who have experienced the sudden loss of a truly beloved spouse that resonate with me. I am in the darkness you write about, and the pain is agonizing. I cannot sleep until my body reaches the utmost exhaustion, and I awake realizing he is gone. unexpected moments can trigger my uncontrollable tears, while other times, I am a rock. I am sorry to hear about your loss and how you must have, and continue to, grieve her loss.
it's now been just over a month. The holidays are coming and so are anniversaries and birthdays. They now hold little meaning, if any.
How do you face these days that are meant to celebrate one another?
