    Your blog hit home to me, I lost my husband in September. One of the last stores we went to together was a 99 cent store. I cannot go into that store right now. Just driving brings up memories of us walking around that store, goofing around. I agree it is so strange how these moments can just pop up, you never know where you are going to be when a memory comes and I see people staring at me going why is this person crying in the supermarket….I loved your 2nd to last paragraph, you are right just because we go to work, are out and about everyone thinks she is doing so good she is coping, they don’t see me behind closed doors crying my eyes out for days….Such a minute by minute struggle…

    I don’t know if this will make you feel better but reading that brings me comfort that I am not alone, what I am feeling, what I do during the day like talking to my husband waiting for signs hoping he comes to me in my dreams they are my new normal. Reading all these blogs being on this website brings me comfort to know I am not alone. Thank you so very much for your writing. May God bless you and comfort you…

    Thank you very much for sharing, it makes me feel a little better knowing some of the stuff I am feeling and thinking others are going through as well. My husband died 9 months ago, we didn’t have any children so I am struggling with not having anyone around, scared that if something happens to me who will know who will be there…..

    Wow, you described my life to a T. I am at the 9 month mark and I am pretty sure everyone is over it….Sadly I am not, I struggle everyday… Thank you for your words, nice to see what I am feeling and thinking I am not alone. Sorry for your loss….
