I can say you are not alone. I lost my husband of 6 years April 6, 2001. John had a bone marrow transplant that failed. All of his organs shut down due to the chemo and radiation. I was numb the first few days. So many decisions had to be made in such a short time. It was hard to plan a funeral for the one you love when you are in so much pain. I can tell you it has been almost 4 months for me and I still ache. Life is more like a roller coaster now-up and down up and down. You will make it! We all will. I joined a local grief support group 2 1/2 weeks after he passed away. They have been a great support to me. Just being able to communicate with people on this site has helped. JB, talk about your feelings when you need to. It helps to be able to share with others who have this kind of loss in common with you. You will have good days and bad days. Your grief is unique as is all of ours. There is not a set time limit when you should do things or feel a certain way. Like my grief counselor reminds us.....It takes as long as it takes for as long as it takes for as long as it takes. I know it sucks being alone. I felt cheated. I have difficulty sleeping also. I wake up all night long. I have discussed this with my doctor and it's part of it. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Take care of yourself and God Bless You.
