This might be a rough time for many of you. Do what you feel you need to do to get through it. Remember, someone is here almost all the time to talk to you.

Thx for the support. I really appreciate it.
Deb, Thank you so much for your eloquent explanation. It's what I was trying to say but was to emotional to put properly. I'm at the point where I'm bouncing between pain, anger and a bit of numbness and I don't know which emotion is going to surface next. All I know is that I miss my husband and I don't like it when people are cruel to someone already in pain. I'm so glad there are people like you around who have sage and sable advice to give.
Faith, I am going to hug you (((((Faith)))). Sometimes, there are people who don't feel good about themselves and they say words that are meaningless and untrue but hurtful to others, it is only because they are hurting and not feeling good about themselves and they lash out at others to hurt them because they are hurting, you must know you did nothing wrong to have caused your husband's passing. Perhaps this person was jealous of the love your husband and you shared because this person never experienced such a beautiful and ever-lasting love. You are love, you are kind and all things beautiful and you know right now and at this time, the truth is your husband and you shared a love like no other and you both cherished one another. That is what is important the ever-lasting loving memories you shared together and for that person who seems so insensitive, slam the door on them and lock it shut. It is time now for You and to think positive and loving thoughts.
Cruel doesn't begin to describe it. Someone who would take a shot at someone who is already swamped with grief is very low indeed. It makes me angry just thinking about it. Don't take it to heart, because whoever said it was just trying to be hurtful to make them feel better about their own life. Don't give them the satisfaction of seeing you down. You did nothing wrong.
Well, when I got home I found oit someone 'close' to me told my play nieve that I lost my husband due to a horrendous mistake I made when I was 19 or 20. That his loss was karma. All I could of was incredibly cruel & unecessary. Thry knew it would het back to me. Now I can't seem to stop crying. It's hard enoigh that I loss my husband, but to have to deal w/ this on top of it seems surreal.
There is no rhyme or reason, and we are left to pick up the pieces. I'm sorry that you had such a tough time heading home. Just remember one breath at a time one step at a time and come here when you need to vent or some encouragement. My prayers are with you. I hope you have a better day tomorrow.
Back from Vegas. The closer it got to time to come back & then the closer we got to home, the worse I felt emotionally & physically. Finally totally broke down while looking over some paperwork. I HATE that he's gone. Way too yoing, but then I just saw on the news where this seemingly healthy young man, working on Pres. Obama's campaign in Chicago, just died of a heart attack. Looked like he was in his 20's. No rhyme or reason to this. :'-(
Hello all I just wanted to check in and tell everyone that my prayers are with you. The Past 2 days have been pretty peaceful and relaxing. Then again I did my best to hide from the world. I'd had a very difficult first part of the week and decided to have a vacation for the past 2 days. I watched some shows that Todd and I enjoyed watching together, made a nice cool strawberry shortcake and just reveled in happy memories. Now that my batteries are recharged a bit I can face another week. I hope you all have a good week. Take care & hugs. Karen
Deb I am so sorry for your loss I wish I could wave a magic wand and make everything alright now. we try to think of good and positive things to keep everyone going sometimes it does help and other times it just looks like words in a book. I am glad you found this site it is a blessing to be able to come here and say whatever pops into our heads/hearts I will be praying for you and I am so sorry for your loss we can lose our parents, siblings, but when we lose our soul mates I can't imagine a hurt being any deeper and painful than this. Jean
