    Hi PaulaR,

    you have my sympathy. 

    Ive never lost a partner but I watched my Mother go through it.

    i think its just a very very personal thing.  Do things in your own wY and at your own rate.... If others are telling you you should be over it.... Its probably just thier way of trying to cope with your grief.

    I've tried counselling for things in the past and it hasnt been much use to me.  I understand though that bereavement counseling can be benneficial for tjose who feel that they need support.

    often, i think peopke feel that thier family and friends should be enough help.  Im not sure that is really true though.

    im new here Im just going through peoples posts and saying hi :)
