Hi, everyone! I hope I can make sense of my thoughts at least in writing! I am recently bereaved and I find it impossible to get past the day that I lost my husband! Anyone here with a similar experience? I took care of the necessary arrangements as we do not have any other family but it feels like I am watching a movie and my mind does not seem to accept what happened!

You've suffered a terrible loss. These feelings will never leave: bereavement can last a lifetime. I have nearly lost a close friend - Michael - to dementia and I am always upset about it. I will never forget who he was. No one will ever forget those special memories of their loved ones and those important friends.

Life is painful without your loved one there, I know. But you can celebrate him: remember him in a way that shows that you enjoyed your life with him. And know he is in your heart and will never leave you. Because he is always there to guide you and would want you to live a busy, full life.

I can't bring your husband back, but know we all have our time and that no-one is ever forgotten and that you have loved ones around you who will be there. They'll never be able to take his place - no one can - but you can live your life to make him proud.
