Paul Rocker, my spouse, partner, best friend,negotiator, problem solver, repairman... has died. He was only 53 years old. Cirrhosis is what killed him. I am numb and saddened. It is as if I have been kicked in the gut. He was in hospice here at home.

It will be a year since my wife died during a nap soon. I have nothing to offer anyone except the effects we suffer and we are not alone with these. After 44 years I still think of her in everything I do. I can tell you life ended for me when she died and I have all the things you suffer from a loss.She was my pal..Randolph Schrader

When I joined this site there were 259 spouses registered, today I see there are 401. My heart breaks for all of us.

I just want to get to the point that I can think about our life together without it ripping me to shreds...

I don't know if this is a good thing or a bad thing - maybe it's just "a thing" and it will go away at some point, but... I look at pictures of me and Dan (like my profile picture) and it's like I'm looking at someone else, that I never lived that life, that the pictures of the two of us happened to someone else. Maybe because it's too hard to think about how it used to be, how happy we were, how much I loved him, how much he meant to me. It's easier to pretend it never happened, because it doesn't hurt as much. I know it's not the right way to handle it, but it's the only thing I can do right now.

My grandaughter wrote to her paw paw "I loved you once,I love you still,Always have,always will" I think that speaks volumes!!!

Just a side note. I lost two uncles this week, 3 days apart, from cancer. One had lung cancer and the other leukemia. It's been a tough week for my family.
