    On the first anniversary of my husband’s death, I found myself dreading the approach of 10.26 pm. How will I feel? What am I supposed to feel? What if I don’t feel anything? Over and over, all day long, these questions went through my head. I thought of how quickly a year had passed. What had seemed like a dream and a nightmare twelve months earlier was actually beginning to resemble reality.
