It's now 8 months since my husband passed. I can't believe I made it 8 months without him, it's a blur. I'm wondering do the tears ever stop? I have cried every single day, multiple times a day for 251 days straight. On the outside I manage to "live" life. I work, I eat, I clean myself and the house. I partake in some social things with my immediate family just to prove to them that I'll be ok. Inside I'm not ok and never will be. Then the second question is if the tears stop does that mean I'm forgetting him? I fear that. As time goes by the immediacy of his presence will wane. I know I'll never forget him but yet I'm bound to stop thinking I hear his footsteps or the urge to tell him something. The thought of that is so sad.
