I am new to this group. My husband of 27 years died suddenly last March 3,2013. Within a week and a half period of his getting sick, he was dead. It all happened so fast, I hardly had time to realize he was really gone.
As I've read in other postings, there are a whirlwind of things needed to get done after the death of a spouse which I did thankfully with the help from family members. I was in a daze throughout most of that first few months.
I did get a lot of support from family guiding me along but as time passed, they got back to their routines. Now I am alone, and do keep busy enough but it would be nice to get an occasional phone call or email asking how I am doing; just listen or even come over and visit. I don't seem to have that and I have a large extended family. I understand most work, have their own lives to deal with.
I have even started going for counseling trying to deal with my grief. I feel having a group I can communicate with occasionally will help me thru this. I have passed the "first" holidays without him and did somewhat okay. Those first were the hardest the first few months. But I made it thru them.
