Heartbroken. Six weeks ago I lost my husband after a 9 month battle with a rare form of cancer (neuroendocrine tumor). He was the love of my life and my best friend. He was the best person I knew. At only 31 I can't imagine the rest of my life without him. Our 3 year old son will never TRULY know who his daddy is. It just breaks my heart.
How do you move on after a loss like this? How do you survive the pain and the sadness? I've been seeing a therapist since early this year and she tells me the only real way to get through is to just dive right in. I feel like there have to be tricks to do this. I've never felt so alone in my entire life. A year ago we were enjoying our family vacation on Cape Cod and know my son and I are alone. I just can't fathom it.
