I posted a picture of my husband & my dog. My husband passed away on the 3rd of Jan. had to have my dog put to sleep on the 17th. Really been a bad month for me. Feel like I just go through the motions.
Hello Faye. Nice to meet you but the circumstances have a surreal quality still eight months later. Bruce was only 62 when he died, aggressive prostate cancer. I still am frustrated by it because they followed their protocols rather than treating the disease as it emerged. I am so sorry for your loss. Bruce too was cremated but I won't give up his ashes although he has a monument. I too find myself keeping busy, very busy. And then I crash. I don't think anyone grieves the same way. For me it is reaching outward and doing things for others. I hope you are finding your way through this quagmire. Some days are like trying to get through a swamp and then there is a ray of sunshine that peeps through. Those rays of sunshine are my Bruce. I miss him so much.
Hi Theresa, my name is Faye Tyree. I am so very sorry about the loss of your husband. I lost my husband on January 3rd. Of this year. He was 71. We were married for 19 years, & together for 20 years. He had triple bypass about 15 years ago stage 4 throat cancer in 2008. Was in hospital twice in December with pneumonia, sepsis, heart problems. Dr.'s put him on a breathing machine. While on it, he had a heart attack. He was do much sicker than we realized. I wonder sometimes if something is wrong with me. It still doesn't seem real, I rarely cry. I try to stay busy. I really try not go focus on him. Maybe I'm afraid it will hurt too much. I had to have him cremated. He had no life ins. But I still buried the ashes. Made it seem more normal to me. 2 weeks after his death, had to have my dog, which I'd had for 10 yrs., put to sleep. I know everybody handles grief differently. But I feel like I'm supposed to act a certain way & I don't know what that is. I know God is helping me. I pray things will get better for you.
Hi TC, hope it's ok to call you that. Couldn't type much before. For some reason, typing stopped. My husband was in hospital twice in Dec. total of about 18 days. Pneumonia, sepsis, had heart attack while on respirator. We didn't realize he was so sick. Still feel kinda numb. Like it's not real. Thanks so much for your message. I will read the scripture. Also on 1/17, had to have my dog, which I'd had for 10 years, put to sleep. But it's only by the grace of God, that I'm doing pretty good. God bless you.
Sorry about your loss. I have not loss my husband yet. I almost did some 6 years ago in a bad traffic accident. Even then, I had lots of anxiety. I could not explain it. So I can only imagine how you feel right now. This website allows many to vent similar feelings. (Revelation 21;3,4)
