My husband died February 28,2010 six days after he found out he had lung cancer and then a brain tumor. He had been sick for months, not eating and loosing weigh, coughing but had been treated for allergies since Nov, 2009. He had a terrible cough and had trouble eating food. I have always slept in our bed, in fact, on his side. I feel so much closer to him and the pillow he use to hold for coughing I have never taken the pillow case off of it. I cuddle with it at night sometimes. It brings me comfort. I have never had a dream of him yet tho.
Elaine, so sorry for your loss. I know what you mean and so do we all. Hearing "how are you" , I hate it. At least my kids know better, they say "whats up". There are just too many reminders that keep us grieving. Hugs to you. Hugs are good.
you may need help via medication, even if is only for a little while. grieving is very hard not only in your mind but it also hurts your body. if you are not sleeping you really need to it is hard enough to get through the day, even with a good night sleep. I lost my husband 8 months ago, but it feels like yesterday,,
love and blessings
