(CNN) - No one can fathom the agony that families of AirAsia Flight QZ8501 are going through - except the families of MH370.
After almost 10 months of waiting, they, too, are grappling with the notion their loved ones perished at sea - but with no confirmation of their fate.
"The lack of ability to close things down emotionally is just exhausting," Sarah Bajc told CNN. Her partner, Philip Woods, was on board Malaysia Airlines Flight 370.
When news broke that yet another plane disappeared this week, Bajc said, "I just started to shake.
"The emotions just repeat. And then you just feel this incredible ache," she said Tuesday. "It's a physical pain through your whole body. And just imagining what all those families are feeling as well, I can imagine it. Unfortunately, I know exactly what they're going through."
