Family and friends think I should be over it now [6 months} they avoid it, so I just pine by myself.

I agree, I have lost all my siblings and mom and dad so I should be used to it, but Martin [hubby] still cant believe it, I feel empty inside and am going through the motions of xmas just for the little ones.

Am new to this group.  I lost my husband very suddenly after 40 years of happy marriage.  It's such a difficult thing to recover from and Christmas is the worst time of the year if you've lost a partner.  Hope you manage to get through it Christine.

How are we all.

Me too, feeling low at moment, missing my other half.  The cold, dark nights don't help.

Hi Lizzie, I know what you mean, as you say winter blues all the cold weather slows you down, I have the grandchildren to tire me out anyway. Having a day off them tomorrow.

Morning Lizzie, I am having a child free day today, I am off to my best friends and will most propably have dinner, its freezing here today and I will have to defrost the car a job everyone hates doing.

We are getting there dont you think, is it bad of me to sometimes get mad at Martin for dying or is it just an emotion that happens?

It just hit me, when I looked at the calendar, that today would have been our Ruby Wedding anniversary. I lost my Susan twenty years ago but I still think of her every day. People told me that I would get over it. It's not true! That would mean forgetting! What happens is that you learn to live with it. It's like losing a limb, you are never the same again. The pain eases and you carry on as a different person in a new life. I very nearly didn't carry on but I was pulled back from the brink by someone who new what it was like to not want to go on living.

I know that it seems unbearable when it happens but, please believe, life does go on and you can be happy again.

God bless us all.
