"Hi Bonnie, I can relate to how you are feeling and remember well when I thought the pain would never subside. Each one of us grieves differently and no two people grieve for the same length of time. In order to heal it's important to express…"

My life in a nutshell

Posted on March 7, 2011 at 5:30am 10 Comments

I am writing this in hopes for everyone out there to understand how precious life can be. When I was back in High School I was such a fool. Skipping class, drinking, doing drugs not a care in the world, (at least I thought so at the time) Invincible so I thought. Maybe we all thought we were somewhat invincible in our own way. It all ...came crashing down one day and kept…

 Hello Peter, sorry to hear about your wife. My wive passed away in Jan 2010, she was 55 years old. This site has helped me, at least I know that I am not the only one that cant get rid of their spouses things,and keeps things in the house as they were before they passed on. Everyone here is going through the same sorrow and are here to help each other. Just try to remember the good times you had, it is better them dwelling on the illness .

Peter,

I am so sorry for your loss. It has been 9 months today since my husband passed away. The first 4 months were pure hell for me, but as time goes by I have learned to live with the pain. That is not to say I do not have my bad days because I still do. I pray to god a lot for strength and to get me through this. I hope you can find comfort coming here and talking to others who have gone through the same thing. This site is truely wonderful and full of people who really care and want to help. Take Care
