she didn't say how much time, did she? while it's different for everyone, a year doesn't even begin to cover it. it took a while to really know Murriel--her likes and dislikes, moods, expressions--and it will take at least that long to feel as though...i don't know, feel as though you're living your own life. whatever that means.

no one gives me roses. no one remembers my favorite foods. no one...knows me. they think they do, but they don't. ok, one or two, but they have their own lives.

Calvert, it breaks my heart to read your words. So sorry you have lost the love of your life.

I hope you can find happiness some day, but until then take care and don't worry about laying in bed for hours if it helps you cope. No one can know what such deep, consuming grief is like until they go through it themselves. (hugs)
