45 and lost - only 9 years they went by so fast

Richard was so full of life. He passed on 11/4/15 after 4 mos of battling stomach cancer.  WHY didn't I push him more years before to get checked more thoroughly at the DR.  I said to him years before that he didn't look right.  He jokingly replied "oh well maybe I am dying."  Well sadly he was right.  I told him for years that sleeping 12 hours a day was not normal and I thought he was just depressed.  We were so busy working and just trying to make it in life that we missed the fact that…

I just want my pain to stop. I held my Daddy in my arms while he died Dec 29, 2002. It was hard but I had Mommy to help me through. Now, I'm alone.

HI Robert, Sorry I missed the chat. Thanks for the welcome to the site and the prayers for us both. I look forward to communicating with you so that perhaps we may help one another. I am feeling down because it s been 1 month today I lost Joe. I want to cry, but its probably not too appropriate at work. I usually take a drive to do that. I want to call him all the time from work. I used to do that randomly just to hear his voice. I find myself reaching for my cell phone and realize in that same second I cant call him. It sucks and my heart drops. I do not like weekend because they now seem so long. I used to wish time would slow down when Joe was sick so I could be with him longer. Now, I wish time would just fly on by. The reality I have to deal with. Thanks again Robert for your correspondence. Love and peace. Gregg

Dear Robert, just to small message to say you are not alone. I lost My partner after 25 years of being together, I felt I couldn't breath, life keeps going and I feel that that if you have not lost your partner you have no idea what it feels like, all I wanted to do was crawl into bed and do nothing, I suppose it was good it was not possible as since it was so sudden there was so much administration to do or I would have lost everything. I felt so alone and after 10 months I meet someone else, it was far too soon but life was slipping away, and I wanted so much to survive. Now it is nearly two years and sometimes it is still hard, but better.
I promise it does get better.
Take care

Hi, Robert.   This group helps - it helps to simply say everything you're feeling - because every single person on this site has gone through it, or is going through it.  Nobody understands until you go through it.  What everybody says about it being a process is true - even though right now you doubt how that can be the case.  But joining here is a start.....and it does get better.

Hi there Robert.  Just extending my welcome to you.  If you need someone to communicate with, I think I can help.  Just let me know.  Hope you're having a good day.  TTYL
