Getting my life back together

Good morning guys! I hope this finds everyone doing very well.
Well, let’s try this…I’m back, once more.
I gotta tell you guys that the loss of a spouse has been much, much tougher than I would ever have imagined.
It’s been as if I just couldn’t shake it??
I’d feel better, only to realize once more, that I was nowhere near where I should be in regards to my life. Up and down, up and down. Good days, bad days…
Where’s normal, I’d ask myself?
Will I ever BE normal again?
For the life of me, I couldn’t figure out just where I was at, and even worse, how to get back to this…this…thing known as normal?
I’ve talked to countless friends who’ve experienced this same thing, and every one of them have tried to express the time involved, the effort involved, the emptiness, the “firsts” that come around that you have to deal with.
Birthdays, holidays, Father’s Day, Mother’s Day, etc., etc…
My last post, about a month ago, I thought I was beginning to FINALLY get things together again, only to slip once more, into some type of funk??
I don’t know any other way to describe it…just some type of funk.
I have a friend who’d told me of her coming home in the evening, locking the doors, pulling down the blinds, keeping the house dark where people would think her not home, or in bed.
