  • Coping - Widows/Widowers

    My husband died last March. And I'm still having difficulty coping. I know everyone says it takes time, its different for everyone, etc. etc. etc.

    Its been almost a year and I still feel disconnected from everything. I've lost my path, and am drifting.

    Is there anyone else out there who has been through this or is going through it? What or who helped you?

    Just trying to get a grip on things.

    I haven't been through that. But my late ex-mother-in-law had.

    They had been married for over 50 years when he died and I spent the week with her at that time.

    If you have kids and grandkids close, throw yourself into them for a while, it sure did help her out.

    Like I said, we were all there for the week and she did really good. One of her sons worked close to where she lived and he would stop in and see her several times a week.

            Thank you all for the advice. Many days are good and then a bad one comes and knocks you back 4-5 feet. You wonder what comes next and is it worth getting up. I will remember the advice to look upward more, downward less, and take all the hugs I can get.
