You have found the place that will bring you some comfort during the difficult time ahead. My husband died on May 1, 2010. This site helped me through the grieving process,which I am still in, and I will be eternally grateful to my friends here, who have patiently listen to my venting and ranting, and not only never judged me, but offered love and support and opinions through it all. Everyone is here for you. I know the loneliness you are speaking of even with your children there. My house sold two weeks before my husband died unexpectedly. I had to move, and my children didn't want me to jump into anything, so I moved in my daughter and son-in-laws home for at least a year. Its a lovely home, but I have little memories here, since most of my things are in storage. It has been very hard for me too. Our husbands are the ones who we told our secrets to, they are the ones that always came to our defense no matter what, they were who we kissed goodnight, and hugged all day long. It is really hard I know, but with everyone here, it will be easier I promise you. The people on this site are the BEST.
God Bless you Kathy,
Kathy, This is probably your most valuable discovery for what you are living through. The people on this site are the best friends and confidants that you will have right now. I can honestly say that I consider most of the people on this site to be my best friends even though we have never and probably will never meet. They are compassionate and understand just what you are feeling. You can pour your heart out and no one will criticize you because we all understand. I lost my husband 11 months ago and life has been a living hell since then. I miss him so very much. My children spend a lot of time with me but that is just not the same. They can never replace their Dad. I wait for the day that I am by his side again. I am so very sorry for your loss and will be here if you need to talk. May God Bless You.
