I keep dreaming about him
« on: April 11, 2017, 05:14:03 PM »
It's been a little over six months now since my husband walked out the door one night and never came home. Lately I've been having dreams that it was somehow a mistake and he's really still alive. I still have trouble believing this is real.

Hello AL
I hear you and yes it is surreal to lose the one you love so much.  For me at 6 months the numbness just started to wear off and reality was setting in.  That's a hard time too so be so gentle with yourself to get through this.
Hugs
I don't want it to be his legacy that his death destroyed me.
I need to honour his life by rebuilding my life.

I totally get it. I have dreams or have weird flashes randomly about my husband and I get disorientated and confused. I do think however my tattoo helps me so when I look at myself in the mirror questioning my sanity, I see my tattoo and I know what reality truly is. it is sort of my own personal "Inception" token to help me distinguish reality vs fantasy. It's hard to have your brain process AND completely accept our situations. We don't want it to be true and I think as a coping mechanism, our brains can really play a doozy on us. Hugs for you today.
