Hi Sweety, Absolutely cry if you want to. My Hubby is still alive but I cry most days now as I can see the deterioration and 24/7 . Happy Birthday and heaps of hug from me as I know I just want to escape this nightmare. As you say it is still raw and kind to yourself (I know you are probably sick of hearing that as am I) but you need to my friend..wish I could change the world and rid it of this awful disease . May much love and hugs surround you at this difficult time. xxx

People say that you have to go through a year of special events before these begin to become easier . That includes birthdays ,Christmas ,Easter and days that were /are special to you . You have now gotten past your birthday and Christmas without your husband so perhaps next time it will be less painful . I hope so .
