Very inspirational young girl :D
Thank you to everyone who has helped me get through my exams! I'm on a bit of a high now!
Last words are hugely important I think. Its nice to know that he was thinking about me in his last few hours, however hard that is to comprehend.
Keeping it short because I have to focus on my revision for my last exam on Tuesday!
I found online an article which I feel is very relevant to anyone who is grieving, especially for people who know someone who is grieving. A lot of the time people don't know what to say or how to act, and its something I have had to come to terms with recently.
Also, only have one more exam left now!! Really excited about going home next week,…
My new post explains why I feel I'm different from other people. I would also like some suggestions of a new word to replace widow - its a horrible term!
Thank you readers!
Just wanted to write a quick blog about a help guide that I found online that might be useful to other women like me (could also be relevent to men, just replace a few words!!)
My advice to anyone in a situation like mine, or anyone who is grieving in general - surround yourself with close friends - they are fantastic help!
Sat another exam this morning, and got some good marks back from an essay I had to do at the beginning of term. Things are definitely looking up right now, the good days are outweighing the bad!
I had the first of my last set of exams EVER today! Can't wait for them to be over, but so far they're going well. I'm sure Andrew is helping me out with them somehow :D
Thank you to my lovely readers, hugs to you all, especially to those who leave me comments!
Today's blog is about seeing other couples and looking into the future
Had my first taste of a counselling session this afternoon

I'm a happy girl this weekend for the first time in weeks. I didn't realise how much I've missed my family and extended family and seeing them has made me push harder for my degree and its given me the energy to keep going on :D
Enjoy and thanks for reading it
New post http://veryyoungwidow.blogspot.com/2011/05/bad-day.html
I had a bad day yesterday. Emotionally drained and still not sleeping well.
Today's entry is a discussion of why I've not been sleeping very well recently
Thank you everyone who takes the time to read it :)
I've just posted a new blog post: http://veryyoungwidow.blogspot.com/2011/05/other-people.html
The reason why I've written it is because I'm upset because I feel my housemate is rubbing it in my face that he has an alive girlfriend who can still come and visit him at weekends. Not intentionally I hope, but he didn't even think to ask me if it was ok for her to be here. Honestly I probably would have said no because…
