Coping with Husband's Death
My husband recently passed away...I'm still in the "numb" stage. We were married almost 30 years...and it was always just the two of us. Of our friends, we were the youngest couple and he was the first to pass away. I need to talk about him, our lives together, etc. but it seems to make my friends and sister uncomfortable. A friend in FL is very comforting to me but I don't want to "unload" on her all the time. I've always been shy and it takes a while for people to get to know me. I don't work but have been thinking a part-time job may be what I need right now. I seem to be coping okay for now and hope I'll be able to recognize if and when I need some help to get through this.
How have others managed to get through that first difficult stage?
