Irene, what you said about what other people are going through rang so true.At my husbands funeral,I looked into the crowd and realized how many had lost their spouses.I realized at that moment how painful it was for them,too.That what I was feeling at that moment they had already been through .How sorry I was that I wasn't more empathetic toward them.What a terrble learning experience.I guess we do learn from our mistakes.Have a good day.
Every word you spoke, every feeling you describe you will find that others here feel the same.We are not alone.
So many beautiful people here have lost that soul mate, that love of their life.I was holding my love in my arms as she took her last breath.I wish that I had took my last breath with her.
Read what the beautuful words of Irene, Sue, Linda,Yvonne and Kathleen say to you.
When I first started here I felt like no one could have loved like I did, no one could hurt like I was, no one could have lost that one true love like I had.
I was so wrong..So many people here hurt just like we do, Loved just as we did.
Listen to others here,, Believe me it will help.
Ranlolph, Don't EVER think you are not needed. There is one person out there who ALWAYS needs you. He will always be there for you, even when everyone else seems to have disappeared. I was thinking the other day, I can't even remember how I found this website. I know that I was having one of those DARK days and just killing time on the computer. It's like this was a gift to me to help me cope with the grief. After finding all these wonderful and insightful people here, I can finally feel my heart slowly starting to heal. I know you don't realize it now, but you will be helping us, your new family, also. In my prayers, Irene
I am sorry for you loss. I lost my Larry August 9 2009. You have come to the right place. I think all of us find it hard to cope and some days are worse than others. Please know that you have friends here that are willing to listen.
Take care Yvonne
Charles, Yes I am already dreading March 22 and July 6. Those days mark both the beginning and end of our married life on earth. Beautiful memories of one, horrible memories of another. Like Randolph, I never felt anger for Terry leaving me behind. He had no control getting cancer, and he fought more than I thoght humanly possible, more for me than for himself. Like everyone else here, I just didn't have enough time, but then again, would we EVER have had enough time with them? I think we all know the answer to that. LOL to all, Irene
