Dear @daybyday, I’m very sorry for your loss of your husband. You are so right that it is not really possible to fully comprehend anyone else’s experience of loss and grief as this is such a personal and individual experience. Hopefully the forums provide you with a safe space to share your experience, how are you going and to connect with others. The thing that stands out to me from what you have written the strengths you have that have helped, and will continue to help you as the days go by. Reaching out and getting help and support takes courage, especially in our darkest moments. Seeking support is a sign of strength and will. The other strength I believe you have is your caring nature, which comes through in your kind words here on the forum. I can tell that you are a person who genuinely cares for others.
