My husband's twin sister died in an avalanche. It was and still is heart breaking. They were best friends. They were only 23 years old. He and I were traveling separately (not married, taking a break from dating) but I rushed home to be with him.
This is the first year that he has let himself feel. All those years I thought I was helping him by allowing him the space to either express or repress his feelings. I thought I was doing the best thing for him by respecting his grief and never pushing him. I don't blame myself but I do wish I had known that helping him talk about his sadness and loss would have been more healing.
Anyway, here we are at this sad day. My poor H has to work, the snow is falling and so are our tears. Thankfully he has an IC appt booked.
I have no "question", I just needed to share.

Strength comes from within. You can't get it from someone or go somewhere to get it. It is already here, waiting to be used when you need it most. Believe in yourself.

My prayers are extended to you and your H.
I, too, am a twin, and I can empathize so much.
Best wishes for healing from this devastating loss.

How awful, what a terrible way to lose someone. :( I'm so sorry for you both. Hopefully the IC will be helpful.
