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.

My wife also died of pancreatic cancer. She was six days past her 57th birthday. It was roughly six months after her diagnosis. Like your husband, her symptoms were vague (food did not taste right... which led to weight loss). I suspect that by the time she was showing any symptoms she was already in Stage IV.
It has been a year and a half. I start feeling better and then seem to regress. Grief is definitely not a linear path. I have been participating in a bereavement group since just after her death and it has helped keep me connected. It is the one place that I can really talk and not feel out of my mind. I don't cry so much on the outside, but there are days when I feel like I can't stop crying on the inside.
Yes, your feelings are normal. Just reading the posts here, you see we all have followed a similar path. No two of us have the same story. We all experience grief in slightly different ways. But it is in sharing our experiences that we all find hints as to how to rebuild our lives.
You did not fail, there is no such word with grief. Set backs yes I think those steps backwards actually helps us move forward. Thats how I feel anyway. If you want a chuckle a little I even cry to the teller in the bank. Their probably saying oh no here she comes.
