Gilbert, my name is David Williams. South Bend, Indiana. I lost my only true love and soulmate Richard nearly 2 years ago. He died 5 months after his Dx of lung cancer. I am so sorry that this is something you have to go through. Be kind to yourself and let yourself experience whatever you are feeling. People around you will only be able to support you for a short time, so be patient with yourself. I am still having some short emotional panic-like attacks. I have had the fortunate availability of a caring grief counsellor through Hospice. It is a no cost service. Hopefully you can find such support through a Hospice Center near you. You can write to me and share any time. Love to you.
Hi Gilbert, I'm so sorry you lost your Danny. I lost my husband of 29 years in March of this year, and I also belong to the Facebook group Janet mentioned. I strongly encourage you to join. It's full of caring, supportive people who understand what you're going through because we've been there. Hope to see you there soon.
My name is Janet. My wife passed almost 5 years ago from pancreatic cancer. I am so sorry about your Danny. It's been a real struggle for me ever since Judy died. I truly understand your pain. If I could, I would love for you to join us in another forum on FB that is way more supportive and is a private group. Please find your way to https://www.facebook.com/groups/LGBTgriefsupport.
You will have to get one of the admins to admit you to the group. I have found this group to be the most support than anything I have done or tried over the years. Sending you some hugs and hope to see you soon on FB.
