"Apologies if this posts twice. I was also afraid for my two kitties, that I wouldn't be able to take care of them after Bill died. After all, I couldn't save him, so what made me think I could take care of the cats? Of course, they are…"
"I haven't been here in a while but I still think of all of you. I'm coming up on 8 months since Bill died and all of your comments ring true. I was very scared in the beginning of being alone at night. That has gone away and I set my…"
"Hello all, I thought I would power thru today but no such luck. Bill and I used to say that "every day was Valentine's day" when someone would ask if we were doing something special. And that was true. We didn't make a big deal…"
"Tiffany, it wasn't enough time. We all feel the same way. I tell myself every day, in an effort to not fall into such despair, that I'm so lucky to have had Bill for the time that I did. I try and be thankful and grateful for that. It…"
"Tiffany, for me, I found that it helped to do the same routine that I had always done when Bill was at home. So the same breakfast routine, the walk to the gym (I spend that 5 minutes on the way and back talking to Bill), I say the same Good Morning…"
"Marsha, it's not a comedy. You can probably pull up the past episodes online. It's a new show so there's not that many. Has a great message and is the number one show which is nice.
You are not interfering. I know that clothes are one…"
"I think the same thing all the time. How is it that there are horrible people walking around just fine and we've lost good, kind people. The only thing I can figure out is that if the bad people were taken, people wouldn't care as much.…"
"Are any of you watching This Is Us? If you are, you'll know why I asked. I believe they really nailed the death of a spouse. The talking to them as if they are there, the items around the house that you don't move. I never would have…"
I lost my husband the end of Aug. after a 10 week battle with a brain tumor and we were married 11 years. I had never lost anyone either. It still doesn't seem real. It will continue to be a roller coaster for a long time and the…"
"Brenda, I talk to my Bill all day, every day. I just spent half an hour with unstoppable tears as I was folding laundry that had been piling up for 2 weeks. I had washed some of Bill's shirts that had been in his suitcase from the hospital that…"
"Sara, Marsha, Harold and all...will check out that movie as it sounds helpful. And happy belated birthday, Marsha. I think of all of you pretty much every morning when I do my walk and talk to Bill on my way to the gym. It's only about 5…"
"Corey, I'm keeping this short as I'm at work and am so far behind it's not even funny. I lost my husband in August after a less than 10 week battle with brain cancer so I'm pretty new as well. I still feel that I'm in a…"
"Thank you Chicago. That was wonderful. And posted at a time where I'm feeling horrible. Seems like the grief is getting worse now that the shock of it is lessening slightly and the reality of being without Bill is setting in on a daily basis.…"
"Yesterday was 7 weeks for me and it was difficult not only obviously for that reason but because we had the official ribbon cutting and grand opening of my business even though we've been in this location for over two years. When Bill was alive…"
