Is it normal to have panic attacks throughout the day? I have crying spells every day since my husband died at the end of December but am finding that all of a sudden my stomach and chest tense up in sheer terror that he isn't coming home. This is such a nightmare and I can't accept or believe he isn't coming home. Why is it that people all of a sudden classify us as 'single', I'm married to Tim and that hasn't changed and never will. This is something that happens to other people, not me. I sit here day after day by myself and don't know whether I can stand it for the rest of my life.
People say how lucky I was that I had him for 27 years, I know that, but I want him for the next 30. I feel like saying to them that is easy for them to say when they still have their husband.
