Thank you for this posting. My husband of 12-1/2 years passed away on March 4, 2001, after a year and a half battle with cancer. My husband was 35 when he died and we didn't have any children.
I too was very strong at the funeral and even after -- always taking care of those around me. Then all of a sudden 5 months after his death, I had what I term, a "cry-a-thon" where I just could not stop crying for 3 days. I felt much better once I pulled myself together and thought I was over the worst.
However, lately I'm wondering if that's true. Our 13th wedding anniversary would have been October 8 and my husband's 36th birthday would have been October 14. I'm having another down spell and I'm sure that it's due to these special days passing without fanfare.
I was feeling pretty sorry for myself when I logged on and then read your upbeat, hope-filled posting. I thank you for sharing and helping me to "buck up".
