    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going?

    Dear Dianrib,

    I am so sorry for your loss and your need to be here.

    8 months may feel like a lifetime when you're in this much pain, but the loss is still relatively recent. You were with him (I'm assuming) for many years and now he's gone and there are so many levels to missing someone, from the purely emotional to just not having someone there every day to talk about your day.

    I'm glad you found us and hope you'll keep talking here. It does get easier with time and work on your part. Keep taking it day by day, keep taking care of yourself, be sure not to isolate. Going through the motions may feel really phony and empty right now, but it is what pulls you through.

    Seek out reasons to smile and be good to yourself. And be patient with yourself and with the process.

    My father died Feb 7 2010 of a long battle with lung cancer. I miss him terribly. You are not alone in your loss. It gets better I think.
