Aisiah, I am so sorry for your loss. I understand your pain. I am in my second year since my husband died, and it still hurts. Your supervisor has never experienced this kind of pain, so how could she know. Sh is very fortunate to not know. This is a good group to join.we help each other. You can say what you feel and not be judged. As Jane and her song say... Lean on Me! My grieving has changed through the months. It is not the gut wrenching pain of the first year, but I defiantly am grieving. I can concentrate better, but I still forget to do things without reminders. I find that I fill up my empty time doing things, or sitting at home in my chair too tired to do anything.
Hugs to you, and welcome to this group. You are welcome here as we all walk down this lonely road together.

I'm sorry Faith.  Thinking of you.  Wishing you weren't having a hard day.  You aren't alone though, hold onto that thought Faith.  We're here and Paul is around you.  He doesn't want to see you so upset.  Take a deep breath and rest...

Rough day & night. I miss him sooooo much. How am I supposed to keep on w/out him? He was the best part of me. Laying in bed crying. Paul, why did you leave me all alone?

I tried the group thing too. Not many choices in this area. Only one other person came, and he spent all of the time talking about other things. It was like a social hour for him. I find this site much more to the point. I am very close to 21 months since I lost my husband. This is the first time ever living alone. I fill my time with so many things that I have weeks where I don't seem to stop. I had three people from Japan stay with me for about 5 days. It was exhausting and wonderful at the same time. The best part was that my home came alive with talking, laughing, and even some singing! They were concerned about being too much for me. I explained how lonely I am since I lost my husband, and how heart warming it was to have them in my home. It was very difficult for me to say these things out loud. I had to leave for work today before their ride picked them up. There were tears all around. When I came home tonight, there were notes and paper cranes all over the house. I am enjoying the solitude right now.
