I've been wondering how you're doing after your husband's death and you haven't given many signals, but I appreciate the article you posted today about what it's like to survive a terrible event in one's life. I hope you have lots of people in your life to whom you can pour out your heart and your sorrow and that you feel okay about doing so. As a Unitarian minister, I have been the shoulder for a lot of people over the years and have been lucky enough to learn that we all need people we can cry to.

I hope your life eases gradually as you find your own ways to survive. Every day when I read your blog, I think about you and hope you are getting through this terrible time day by day. I know if must be very hard.

Thanks, Lilylou.

This is the second time I've been widowed, so I was able to skip a lot of the philosophical trauma this time around, but the personal trauma is still there. I've been able to lean on my children somewhat, since they are adults now. I think I'm getting my life back together gradually.

Wow, everyone should read "I'm Terrible". Even if they're the rare person who doesn't experience a (or more) personal loss, just to be aware of people around them that do, go through.

Thanks for your response, Miss C. I'm glad you have support and that you have developed ways of dealing with the trauma. I'm so sorry you've had to experience this again.
