    Thank you for your words. I’ve been feeling guilty for my lack of patience with family & friends who constantly complain about the oh so unimportant issues that plague them throughout their day. But I’ve realized now it’s the small talk I get annoyed with & I want to only focus on what really matters.

    My husband died suddenly & unexpectedly from a heart event. No warning of any problems. Four days before our 42nd Anniversary. I look like I’m living again but I’m not; I’m going through the motions. I’m like a robot from the 60’s sci-fi films. I play a part & function like a normal person, go out, travel, converse. But it’s not me; I died right along with my husband. Thank you Alison, for your words. Fifteen months, 8 days, 4 hours…..still counting.

    Your post accurately describes my days for the last 9 months since my husband of 42 years died unexpectedly. It’s so hard to explain to others what we go through every hour of every day, thank you.
