Tina tom is right it is way to early for you to worry about moving on it is a process only you will know when your ready to move on people have good intention telling you those kinds of things but unless they have lost a spouse they don't have a clue so move at your own pace you will know god bless

Well, yesterday marked my first month alone, and I made it through somehow. It has been just a horrible week for me. I keep waiting for it to get better, and every time I think it is, I crash again. I was told yesterday that Larry would not want me like this, and she is right... I am trying to be strong, but it is just so hard. I hadn't been able to make the bed since the night he passed away. Sounds stupid I know, but that's where he was sitting when he had the heart attack. Yesterday, with the help of his daughter, we did it together. Baby steps... I am so thankful for my family. I know I wouldn't have made it this far without them. Friends said they would call, stop by.. but, have I heard from them... of course not. One month down, a lifetime to go.

Kathy I know how very hard this is for you. I feel the same way but the people here have helped me so very much. Everyone in the family would tell me things would get better but they kept getting worse. And I had told my husband on his death bed that I would be ok. I was tormented because I felt that I had lied to him because I wasn't ok and didn't think that I would ever be ok again. I finally let myself fall in love again but even that didn't take away the pain still felt in my heart. He has been gone for over 4 years now and it is just like yesterday.It was only after learning about this website and hearing from people here that I realized that I am not crazy but feeling like everyone else here. Everyone has helped me so much and now for the first time it is like a huge weight has been lifted and I can finally concentrate on my new husband and stop sitting around crying and feeling depressed all of the time. Sure I still have my moments and I will never ever forget him but it is better then it was and for that I am so grateful.

Kathy, God Bless you in your journey to find find peace and happiness. I will be thinking of you. I am getting ready to take a trip away from my home back to my hometown this next week. I'm not sure what I am looking for except to get away from this home I shared with my husband. God Bless You
