Hey Paul. I want to offer my condolences to you on the loss of your partner Mike. I lost my wonderful partner Homer back in February. In fact Monday the 9Th was eight months since he passed and it would have also been our 31st anniversary also. I can't even put into words how much I miss him. We met on October 9Th 1981. So we always called that day our anniversary because we basically moved in with each other right away. He was a soft hearted, kind man. I can't put into words how much I miss him.
I wish I could offer you so great words of advice on how to deal with your loss but I don't have any. As I mentioned to someone else on this site I guess it gets better with time but it is not something I think you really get over. I have been talking to my guy since he passed several times a day sometimes I think I feel his presence but I'm not sure it could be just wishful thinking. It helps me though just to talk . I am also thankful that Homer was with me all of those years. I thank God for that everyday because Homer and I truly loved each other and true love is so hard to find in this world. I was blessed. It sounds like you and Mike really cared for and loved each other also.
I doubt if I was much help to you but please to feel free to reach to me anytime. Take care Paul.
I have lost two husbands and even though its been a year still very fresh. I can understand being lonely. Night time was always the hardest. I can always trick my mind during the day but when it comes to bed the truth is there. I spent many sleepless nights watching tv and still do some nights. Animals and family have always helped. Feel free to write whenever you need.
Hi Paul just read your message. It is the worst at first. I can not say the pain will ever go away but each day will get easier. All of your feelings are normal. Crying will continue for a long time it happens when u least expect it. Support is very important. Its okay to be alone but be sure not be alone all of the time. Just take it one day at a time.
