It has been almost nine months since my wife of 48 years died peacefully in her sleep. She had a long hard illness, which she faced with a great deal of courage.
I have settled her death in my mind and have established a new life.
Now I have started have having thoughts and some guilt when I am doing something that I know my wife would have enjoyed or when I go on a trip that I know she would have liked.
This does not happen all the time and it is not overwhelming but it does give me pause.
Is this common, do these thoughts continue, will they become more frequent, will they in time become less frequent.
If anybody has had any experience with this I would like to hear of your experience.
Best regards to all you caregivers
