This is the first time i have visited this website. I lost my husband on May 18, 2009. i feel I am going backwards in my grief, even the mention of my husbands name or a favorite memory brings me to tears. i am blessed with wonderful children, grandchildren family and friends that are supportive but I am having difficulty getting through this. I miss my husband and think of him every day.I have more to say and I would like to share my pain with others going through the same loss. Hugs.

Edler, I am surprised to see those who are still writing after losing their loved ones over a year ago, I thought I was the only one hurting so bad after a year. Sometimes it feels worse now than it did in the beginning. I lost my Brad on Aug. 5, 2009. You are right that we should get out with others but it is so hard, I feel so alone even around a lot of people. Hope you are doing okay, let me know.

Dear Carolyn, it's ok to feel the way you do. Most of us feel the same way. I lost my wife on Aug. 13, 2009 and I still have days that are harder to get through. In my opinion, the more you loved your lost one the more and harder the grief. Which to me is only natural and things should get better in time. At first I didn't want anyone around me but now I know that it doesn't help to go through this alone. You need your family around you and if you can try to get out more often and maybe find something that you can do with your time to help you get through this. Grief is not an easy to experience and get through. One day at a time, trying to make the next day a little better is all one can try to do. Sharing stories with others on this site has helped me tremendously. Try to be patient and know that we are all here for you. Have a good day. A big hug, Ed
