a gay widow that has a grieving heart.

Hello, I am a gay male widow who lost my husband of 18 years this past march to Duodental perforated ulcer situations. I loved him so very much,and he loved me.

Grieving

Wow,  I did not at all think that anyone would care to read, let alone respond to,  my post.  I don't have anyone (other than the Lord) I can talk to to help me get through this experience. I truly cannot tell you how much your responses mean to me.  I know that God will never leave my side, but knowing that there are people who I've never met that cared enough to respond to my brokenness gives me additional hope.   The range and intensity of emotions I continue to feel since my father's…

Four Months

It has been four months since my husband's accidental death. A month of numbness, holding it together and pretending to be strong when allowing myself to feel would have instantly shattered that illusion. The second month was one trying to climb what I perceived to be an infinite wall of getting the finances together and filling out countless forms. It didn't help that the stupid doctor filled out the death certificate incorrectly. And if the funeral home knew the depths of the pain I…

Memorial etiquette

When you get memorial donations and all funeral expenses have been paid, donations have been made and there is money left. What is the proper thing to do with money that remains? Divide among family?

Grief is a thin place

In the wake of my 27-year-old son's death 25 years after we lost his dad, I've started a podcast. I hope others will share their stories so that we can create a community in which others share their experiences of grief as a thin place.

My Beloved

Hello,

Dealing With Grief....

It's painful and when I hear of another person dying I am reminded of that pain... I can only get comfort by not only by the support of family and friends but God. He feels our pain 1 Peter 5:7 and I know that one day I will be hugging them and kissing them in paradise John 5:28, 29

6 Years- Still So Hard

Well last month was the 6 year passing anniversary of my brother Mike.  I've  learned a lot about grief on this journey. I do know for sure that time really has not made any of this any better.  It may have been 6 years, but the pain on some days is so Raw and so real it still takes me a minute to ground myself and be okay.  I quoted on Feb 10/2018 "that my love for you lives in my grief for you" I think is true for me.  Overall I am still so grateful for having mike in my life for 32…

10 months out

Seems like no time has gone by at all. Not crying hysterically everyday...just crying everyday, Still thinking about him everyday and wondering if he is doing okay where he is and if he is busy. I am not busy except in my mind and the daily chores that require attention...the dogs, snow shoveling, dentist, shift at work...stuff I was doing before he passed. Feels like floating around in the sea sometimes calmly and then getting slapped by a wave. I was told today that I have to move…
