Jeanette, I'm so sorry for your loss. The truth is we will never get over losing our spouses. All we can do is the best we can and try to move forward. You should probably visit this site more often. I'm new here and the people here on this site have helped me tons. I just lost my wife 6 weeks ago suddenly so I know the pain that you are feeling. We are all here to lend each other support so please feel free to visit and vent as much as you like. Take care of yourself.

Hi Jeanette

Its almost 3 years since my soul mate died, he was also my best friend and I too cry for him every day and cannot come to terms with his death.   I have lost almost all my friends because  I "cannot get over it and move on".   Move on where exactly, i am 73 and my only wish is to join him as soos as possible - that's my moving on.   I am so sorry for your loss, it hurts every day doesn't it and the platitutdes about "time being a great healer" is bunkum.   perhaps it helps just a little to know that me and lots of other on this site know exactly how you feel (no one else does unless they too have lost a spouse and some not even then if the marriage has not been as ours were).    

A big hug for you because you so obviously need one right now.

No worries Stacey...I haven't been on here since I messaged you last. I read you have been busy moving and that's good for you. I hope everything works out. You gotta do what's best for you. Thanks for the tattoo compliment. I'm so glad I got it in tribute for my wife. It did make me feel better when I did so definitely finish yours..
