OK, so maybe deciding to start a blog on the day before my husband’s memorial service wasn’t the best idea. I set up the blog, wrote that first post, and then promptly fell into a funk.
I can tell you that life as a relatively young widow is not the greatest. It’s very hard at times. I seem to be doing ok which is a relief to me though sometimes I feel like I’m not grieving properly. I suspect that says more about me than anything else.
I am so lucky to have friends who have been helpful. It has made all the difference for me.
I’m also lucky that I started a job about a month after my husband died. Having to get up and go somewhere has made me focus on other things so I’m functioning in the real world.
