Hi everyone. I am glad to find a place like this. I lost my partner of 6 years to a motorcycle accident 5 weeks ago. He was coming home from work just like every day for the past 7 years. A distracted driver hit him and he was killed. He had zero tolerance for distracted drivers - he would get annoyed if I were rooting around for something in my purse while driving and would reach in and get it himself. It seems impossible that this could happen. He was always so careful. He was the most important person in my life. He was finishing his PhD from Berkeley in just two weeks. So smart and funny and kind. He worked so hard and struggled with a lot of things. There are so many memories; it seems impossible that I am the only one who carries them now. I guess the pain never goes away and it becomes something we  learn to live with. I just don't want to accept it though. I've never loved someone more.

 It is so sad that you have to be on this forum. I was lucky to  find it 5 months ago after losing my wife of 40 years also unexpectedly while in the hospital for a surgical infection. You will find that many understanding and compassionate friends will be here for you to vent ANY feelings you want to share without being judged. Come to the forum as often as you feel you have to and you can see how we try to help each other get through the unbearable days. We all share in the pain you feel and will try to help ease this painful journey for you.
