Healthy mourning period

My husband' brother passed away due to cancer May 7th. We are still finding it really hard to just get on with our day to day lives. Is this normal. I mean, how long before we start to find some semblance of what we used to be?

  • Everyone heals in their own time.  Have you read about the stages of grief?  I found it very helpful when my father passed away.
