It will be 2 years on the 24th of March since my husband passed away after a long struggle with illness. I have come a long way in the 2 years but still look forward to the anniversary date with dread. I retired from my career as an R.N. so i could give him the care he deserved to have. I tried going back to Nursing but found too many memories flooded in and it was no longer for me. Of course siince i am fast approaching 65 there is not a good place to fit in my old profession. I have finally accepted that he is gone and that my retirement is a permanet thing and that i am moving on to my new life as a widow. I would like to think that the pain of losing a Husband that i was with for 41 years would go away complely but i know that is probably a unrealistic expectation. Does anyone have suggestions for a positive view on a sad anniversary date?
