I'm hoping to get some perspective from this community on a tough but not uncommon topic.

I think this is far more common than many realize - and there's a stigma that keeps people from talking about it and connecting.

Has anyone else been through this? How did you navigate it?

"In about 1.5 months, it will be 8 years since my husband died. For me, the pain has not lessened, nor has the sense of shock. I still find myself sometimes caught short by my disbelief, the sense that this cannot be real. I just re-read my…"
