Hello, I'm new to this web site. My husband passed away Dec. 3rd, 2006. He was 36. He died suddenly. We have three children: 16, 11, and 6. I miss him a lot and work to support my family but also to keep busy. I have focused my attention on my children and work but not so much on myself. When I get stressed, I feel alone. He was my best friend and support. I have friends but I don't want to burden them with my stress or sadness. Friends and family have helped tremendously but I keep the sadness to myself. Sometimes I feel overwhelmed. I'm just wondering if this is typical and what do others do to fill the void or balance their life?
