Tom, I am glad to see that you are feeling somewhat better. Keep up your sense of humor. We all need a bright spot once in a while. Keep up your positive attitude.

Hi all, yesterday I had a bbq/family reunion, what a day about 60 people and I truelly enjoyed myself.wich was nice for a change.People talked about my husband and his crazy anticks. my nephews had fond memories of when they lived with us and the best part was I got through it without a tear. I hope everyone a nice day and I will be back on later, god bless. Virginia

I went to my first cookout today without Steve. Yesterday was 3 weeks since he died, I miss him so much. I don't feel like I'm living - just going through the motions. Remember to eat, feed the dogs, go to work... I'm so lonely.

Patricia I am so sorry for you loss. We are all on a journey that we never wanted to take. You have come to the right place. Here you will find people that understand your feelings, because they are experiencing the same thing or something very similar. Take care and keep coming back

I am so sorry you feel like you are right back at the beginning of your loss. I remember what it was like at the 5 month mark. I was so lost and alone. That would have been January and I cried the entire month away sitting in front of the TV. I didn't sleep much and was really miserable. I found this site at the end of January and it really helped me a lot to be able to put down in words how I was feeling. What I am saying Tom is that you helped me a lot and I thank you for that. I didn't know at that time that you loss was so new. I know you miss Loni terribly. She sounds like a super lady and someone I would have enjoyed meeting.
Tom I hope for brighter days ahead for you and all of us here. Together we can all make it.
Take care Yvonne

Hello all.....I am all new into this website and also a new widow. My husband died March 22, 2010. We were married 34 years and have a beautiful marriage. I am 67 years old and my guy was nine years older than me, he was 75. I am missing him so much and my life seems so empty. I do have 2 grown children and 3 grandsons but they have lives of their own and I don't want to bother anyone. My house seems so big and empty and my life seems so meaningless. People tell me to go out, why?? I don't want to be crying in front of others and make them feel uncomfortable. I need to do something but I just don't know what. I found this website through my local newspaper. I keep praying and asking God for the strength to get me through this journey of life.

Tom, I'm glad your feeling better today.Tom I wonder if maybe you were in denile, I know how it is to be a caregiver for someone whose dying before your eyes every day.When you have to be strong for everyone else and get used to holding in what your feeling. I did that with my husband we knew he was dying but, didn't talk about it,so when he had the massive heart attack I truelly didn't expect him to dye like that but I'm glad is was fast and he didn't suffer the last stage of the emphysema. people don't want to talk about it so we keep it inside and that cathes up with you well need to go now see you later Virginia

Posting just to let my feelings out. I'm angry, sad and jealous today. My sister and her HUSBAND just left for a 10 day trip to Japan. Bo and I were their traveling companions.

Hi All, Today is 13 months since I lost my husband, I am going through the everyday motions of life but, I still cry every day for him at one point or another and being home ( retired ) really stinks.I am disabled so I can't go find a job to fill part of my day and I'm not much for the computer so everyday is a long lonely day but when I am going or doing something I can't wait to get back to my prison. We use to have big cook outs that stopped some years ago,so this year we are having a big one and calling it a family reunion, my sister said she is tired of just getting together when there is a death so and truelly that usally is when we see each other. I am looking forward to it hopefully it will be a joyous day as all my family is nuts and we always have a good time when we are together. I wish for everyone on here a happy holiday and remember our loved ones with a laugh and bunch of wonderfull memories. Virginia
