Often times, it is not easy recovering from the death of a loved one. It is difficult to get over it. My father died 3 years ago. I am not over it. It makes me sad whenever I think about him. It was the way he died, in the nursing home, he slowly wasting away. Dying. Having to watch him die slowly, nearly "killed" me. After he died, I was so stressed, I ended up in the hospital the day after his funeral. I am still grieving. I can't get over it.
Here is how I feel about it, "it is okay if you never get over it." I am speaking only for myself. If you understand how I feel. Then you understand why I don't care if I never recover. The way I see it, my life is forever changed, "to a point," because my Dad is gone. And it's okay.
I've got a right to feel bad about my Dad going away. I got a right to miss him. My life is not the same. It is changed because he is no longer with me. And all of this is something, I don't mind, living with, and getting over with, slowly. Okay, enough is enough, of this.
Peace be with you, as you go. Regards, Dr. Haddox

Read my hub... Is it human nature to do this?...see if you can relate. It's a road with emotions that come and go...A song, a smell, a memory, anything can set you off. I don't know if you recover....you just live with it.
I don't think you recover. You learn to deal with it. I don't think a person can expect to ever be the same after losing someone close.
