Thank you for sharing this journey with us, dear Catherine. It took me years to come out the other end of grief. I said frequently to myself and to others, "I'm still in love with my dead husband."

But realize that part of grief not being linear means that you will have moments that you share laughter with a friend, or forget yourself in a book, or realize that it's not as bad today as it was last week. Those peeks into a "normal" (in quotes because it will never be normal) life will help sustain you.

You don't mention grief counseling. Please avail yourself of this. It helps so much. And please let me know if you'd like to talk. You know I'm here for you. These blog posts I wrote might give you some solace and ideas:
