As the title suggests really. At the moment I still don't feel like its happened. I keep looking at their FB etc and expecting them to post any minute or add a photo. I just don't feel like they're gone. I know they are, and rationally I know it's real but part of me feels like it just hasn't happened and they've made a mistake. I haven't cried, and usually i am a very emotional person... it's mainly because I just don't feel like its real.
Don't really feel like I have the right to post here as he isn't my DP or even a member of my family. But he contributed to helping me get through the toughest time i faced in my life a few years ago and I just can't believe he's gone .
My wonderful mum died almost 5 years ago and I saw the perfect birthday present for her just before her birthday would have been in May this year. I picked it up and went to the counter before I remembered.
However, the times in between those occasions, when its just a fact of life get longer with time. I can go for weeks or months when it seems that I believe its true, or accept she is gone. It seems to be getting easier, but I honestly still don't believe she is really gone.
I would say, yes, yes it does go away. It takes a long time though, as long as it takes to adjust to them being gone. My dm died 7 years ago, it's only the last year or so I've started to not accidentally think about phoning her .
