    I can totally relate to this. I left Arizona about 8 months after my husband died in a car accident (5 yrs and 7 months ago) and moved back to Ohio. At the time I never wanted to return to Arizona. I felt the way you describe the first couple of times I went back to Arizona to visit family and friends there. Being there brought me back to day one. Everything was a trigger. The hardest things were driving by where the accident happened and seeing our house that I sold. Now I can go back and yes I think of him and remember our life there but most of the time I can remember and smile instead of cry. Like everything else, it takes time.
