I have been here for a while. The grieving process has been long and painful as you all are experiencing. I quit many prior activities like TV, Sports Radio, and Movies take a couple of days to get thru. The nerves are so raw. The two things that make this tolerable are close friends and music. I spend hours in music. Sometimes very emotional songs and just let the tears roll. Sometimes powerful gospel or well-loved rock. I might choose Tom Petty, Running Down A dream, Aretha Franklin with Mavis Staples singing, Oh Happy Day, or Willie Nelson, Always on my Mind. Sometimes the sorrow is too much. I choose music with drive and power to counter the sorrow. This has helped. Maybe some of you have to go to music? Share if you feel like it. As I type Tom Petty is doing, " Something Good Coming". Very moving with some sorrow and optimism. Just suits my mood. Hope this is useful. Best to all of us. May we love our partners and live life in a respectful remembrance.
