1 year
« on: February 10, 2016, 01:05:01 PM »
I don't really have much to say except for, I now belong to this particular +1 year group, and I don't like it.

Don't get me wrong. You couldn't pay me to go back to those early months. But still, the reality of knowing you have made it through one year and knowing that you have to keep on doing this year after year is very overwhelming.

The only slight comfort I have is that at least I have this community of those who are simultaneously going through it

I am so sorry you as well as many others have to go through this pain.  It is so unfair. 
I am glad you found a support system here. 
Wishing you peace and comfort.

I wish there was some magic that happened at one year to make it all a little easier but it is just the marking of time.  For me, the anticipation of the anniversary was the worst part.  (((Hugs)))
You will forever be my always.

I wish I could hug you. I know you are motoring through this and that feels like an empty way to be living life. You know what it is like to love deeply and live fully in the moment and that has been snatched away. I know it, too. I hope that time will ease your angst. You will always carry the love you have for your sweet husband. I realize that isn't necessarily comforting, but I hope that the day will come when it does bring you peace.


Life is short.  Love with all you've got.
