It has been a couple months. I hate the weekends when everyone around me loves them. I guess the part I like most is that I've been sleeping through half of them lately. I sent his sofa and love seat off yesterday as well as some of his tools. I've been leaving the stuff in his house alone, I guess hoping he would come back. Today feels like he's not going to.

You have some tough days to get through especially as the holidays are right around the corner. That first Thanksgiving and Christmas without him were very hard and it hit me so unexpectedly. As much as you are hurting right now, it will get better. For me, it's been 5 years, 1 month. The pain has lessened although at the time it was hard to believe it ever would.


My heart goes out to you.


D.

My grandma passed in 2012 and I feel the same. There are times when i wish i could just pick up the phone and call her. Times i wish i could just stop by.

My mom and I share a similar, sarcastic sense of humor. So many times I find something that would crack her up & I'd love to call her.

My dad and I have been feeling the same way about my mother. I still can't believe she's gone (it's been two months: July 24th, was the worst when we got to hear, "We did everything we could.")

Less than a week after the funeral, we had tickets for James van Praagh. It was too soon - we went with high hopes, and I left disappointed, and much less of a fan than I'd been. We had to leave in the early hours of the morning, to get there by the time it started, and when I remembered why we were going, as I got into the shower, I had a panic attack, and went dizzy. I still go into denial, and then it hits me again. It feels like it's only going to get worse. Especially with the holidays coming up.

I think I'm still in denial most of the time. I STILL feel as though he is coming back.

Last weekend, I gave away his sofa, love seat and some tools. I cried when I watched it go down the road. I don't know which will be tougher: selling the house or selling the Harley. I think once those are gone, I'll know that the chapter is over.
