I just wrote and posted, I thought, to a blog site; evidently it was not entered. I'm not sure I can rewrite my feelings as well the second time, but I will try. I lost my best friend, my lover, my husband on June 6,2010 to stomach cancer. I knew the prognosis 2+ years ago, but I never thought it would really happen. I am absolutely immobilized; I don't want to see anyone or go anywhere; I know it will take time; I have heard all the cliches and listened to my wonderful friends as they ask me to dinner, movies, etc. I have put in a call to a psychologist because I know I need some objective help right now. But what I think I need most is to read your posts and see how you are coping or not and try to find some serenity through you. I have 2 wonderful sons, both of whom are career military and married; my families are not only not near me but out of the country. While they are dealing with their father's death and their distance from me; they are as supportive as they can be (daily phone calls,etc).

Already I have found some comfort in your postings. Thank you....

Hi Carolyn, I've just read your post and even though I've not had a marriage the length of yours...I've loved and felt the painful loss of loved ones to death. I have experienced the loss again recently...and realized how much I have grown in knowledge from my other loss several years ago. I do think you are on the right track to write your feelings and also to seek professional help. I found that counting my blessings has helped to trigger my brain to move from the "hopeless heart" to "hopeful heart" . You are in my prayers...Carol
