This might be a rough time for many of you. Do what you feel you need to do to get through it. Remember, someone is here almost all the time to talk to you.

Deb.......Kaela is right, it's too soon.  You were with Greg for so long that 5 months might as well be 5 minutes so it's normal to still feel deep sadness now.  It's not fun and does weigh us down but unfortunately, that's the price we have to pay for the deep love we had with our spouses.   I too hate feeling this way but I wouldn't trade a minute of the almost 30 years I had with Ken for an ounce less pain.  He is worth everything to me including having to deal with this grief for the next X number of years.

Deborah, It's only been 5 months (your husband died in May right?). I know you are in so much pain and you want relief from it but you gotta give yourself a break. It is still so early. I wish I could relieve your pain. Just know we are all here for you and we all know how you feel.

Don't know how to rise above this horrible sadness that I feel all the time, Ive always been a very positive person but I cant seem to snap out of this and I hate feeling this way, even though I go about my daily life it is still there taking away any joy I might normally feel.

Deb P.....I love that poem.  It's so accurate and how I feel most days.  I think I'm going to post it on Facebook

No one really knows what to say besides "how are you doing" but people should say What can I do to help you thru this", its a tough thing to figure out the polite way to address someone who lost a loved one ,I myself cannot stand the phrase "widow, it sounds like a disease and makes it sound like I am different
