Is it okay to use "after all this time" to mean "up to now" in the following context?
My mother passed away three years ago.
I'm still grieving over her death after all this time. (= I've been grieving over her death up to now.)
Let me confirm that "after all this time" used in the following sentence does not mean "up to now," but it means "despite what has been said or expected."
I've decided to read it again after all this time. (= This time, I've decided to read it again after all.)
