"I've been reading some of the posts...it's amazing how we all share the same experiences. Yes, weekends suck!!! It's like you get drawn down into a dark hole of feeling so alone and remembering all the horror. Yes, I turn on the TV…"
"Mary Jane, I haven't been on this site for a while now, but I just read your last post. Nobody tells us anything! Or maybe they kind of do, but we have no idea what it means. Or can't believe what it could mean. If I had really known the…"
"I feel your pain. I too lost my husband last August. It was from a brain tumor and it was only 10 weeks from when he was seemingly fine and diagnosed to when he died in hospice. I'm about your age and my husband was about the same as your…"
"To follow up on Option B, I've now finished it and discovered that there is a huge online support group on Facebook. Just put in Option B and it will take you there. One of the most inspirational blogs is from Patton Oswald whose wife died a…"
"Don't know if any of you have read it yet, but I highly recommend Option B by Sheryl Sandberg. I'm about 3/4 of the way thru and find it very helpful. She addresses pretty much everything that we all have gone thru, are going thru or…"
"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…"
