I lost my husband Ken in January after 26 1/2 yrs of marriage. He was the love of my life, my everything. Now I don't know what comes next. It's a struggle to get through each day. Only those that have lost their life partner can understand how excruciating it is. I'm hoping this group can somehow help.
I haven't been on line lately. Had a couple of very sad weeks. I would love to get together sometime. This is such a lonely journey. Would love to meet with someone's who actually understands. I live in Beverly.
Thank you Sara! I'm still overwhelmed in sadness. It's nice to know there is a safe place to chat with others.
Thank you Sara
Thank you Sara ,I am sorry is not good enough to say to you,there are no words ,Micah is my son, he was 32 when it happen, I am the daughter of a preacher and never doubted god , but living with my husband 53years ,saying ,it's a fantasy that people want to believe,and all the other of his beliefs it is hard for me to think which way is right (I am problem not making sense,idont these days)
Hi Sara ... Nice to be your friend. My honor!
Oh, my Sara, I think I understand what you're saying - all this time - ugh. Thank you - well, it's too late now bc Daddy's been gone 6 yrs so I'm doing much better - wow. Thank you for the info!
My biggest struggle is I know Diane is gone and not coming back, but there is a small piece of my brain that won't accept that. The idea that I will never get another kiss, hug and I Love You More from her just doesn't seem possible or real. None of this seems real to me how could it makes no sense. I find I do best if I don't look too far ahead, when I do I get depressed and anxiety sets in. Then the reality sets in of being alone for the rest of my life without the love of my life. Maybe not looking to far ahead is my brains way of keeping that piece of my brain that can't accept happy. I try not to think of it to much.
From reading the posts, you and I seems to be the only ones who have recently lost our spouses. Have you returned to work yet? I haven't. I am looking for something new. I can't go back to that place.
The weekends seems the hardest to me. Sunday just wouldn't end. I pray for strenght every day. I haven't been able to go through his things. I wear his pajamas, socks, t-shirts and anything else that I can. I miss him so much.
If you ever want to talk one on one, just let me know. I think I would find comfort in talking.
I'm having one of those moments and anxiety as I type. I will ask my doctor for some meds. I am 4 months from my 57th birthday. He made them so special. I, too, wish that I could be with him but yet know that my children need me. I feel stuck. My emotions are so out of control right now. I just want my heart to stop aching.
I hope to talk to you tomorrow. Let me know what range of time would be good for you. I plan to go to church for the first time since his funeral. I am going to take something to help me sleep.
Talk to you soon.
