Hello I'm 35 yr old stay home mom of three age 3, 6, 9. Lost my husband of 10 1/2 yrs unexpectedly 5 months ago (august 08). I still wear my wedding rings and now his too. I get asked all the time how long I plan on wearing them? I guess I will know or get a feeling of when it feels right to do so.
All couples who've been together a while have his friends, her friends and their together friends. Some of jim's closest friends and a lot who were our "couple" friends have TOTALLY disappeared from all of our lives and this hurts, not only me but the kids who've grown attached to some of them. Do you think a lot of it is because people just really don't know what to say, or is it just that they feel talking about him or reconnecting with me and the kids will make us sad, bringing up his name or old memories ----hurt and at a loss here.
