JeL Posted October 26, 2013 Report Share Posted October 26, 2013 I'm a newbie to this grief group, and a newbie to bereavement and loss...I'm hoping to learn some wisdom from this forum. My husband died last month after a short illness. Gratefully, we had time to gather family, make a few important decisions, cry/laugh together as we said goodbye. I'm back to work and household maintenance, slowly healing from some early grief physical effects like insomnia and loss of appetite. I feel solace in my social isolation and anxious going to concerts/movies/dinner (I've tried), so I'm declining most offers from well-meaning friends. I feel I'm disrespecting my husband when I do "normal" social activities. Our wedding anniversary is coming up; just thinking of it crumples me into a raw, teary blob. I truly don't know how I'm going to make it to and thru this first milestone event so soon after his death. Any similar experiences or suggestions?
