Two kinds of grief

poppydoll

I'm sorry for everyone who is grieving. I lost my husband, and I feel like a boat without an anchor. I had a destination, which was spending the rest of my life with him...but now that place doesn't exist. I don't know where to land and I'm drifting...

...and so I'm grieving for my husband, and grieving for the life I thought I'd have.

I'm so sorry to hear about the death of your husband. Just know that what you're going thru', and what your feeling, is OK. Please give yourself time to go thru all the steps of grieving. You might find that a grief counselor might help too. ((poppydoll))

That is how we all feel when this happens, no where to go, no place to land. Just us alone in the middle of nowhere. Its so hard, but it will get easier it just takes time an lots more time. I am still a work in progress myself. I don't know if I will ever make it to shore. I am also still grieving.

Read some of the other postings, I left some links for everyone to check out. They might be a help to you.

Hugs,

JoAnn
