it will be 4 years in September that Joe is gone.   Our 45th wedding anniversary is tomorrow.   I'm not even posting it on Facebook, because I don't think anyone cares.

I miss him so much.   Loneliness is terrible! !!!   I have one friend that I consider a "true friend.".   The others have become aquaintances......  Sad, but true!!!   

I know all of us are trying to stay busy, and call that "moving on with my life", but I think it is just a way to hide the pain.   At the end of the day, when I sit alone,  and Joe is not here, I realize how much i miss him.   Please, God, don't let me be so lonely.

5 years since my wife died suddenly of heart failure right in front of me.  The time since that day has been just awful and when I reached this anniversary, I just couldn't believe it.  All I think about is all the years ahead without her.  I sincerely hope you find some peace and relief from the pain because I cannot grasp just how anyone is supposed to live with this sort of profound loss and find meaning in their lives.

It is a tradgedy to lose a loved one. But it does get better. Not everyday will be the same some days burn to the core more than others. Find a hobby or volunteer or help someone basically find something to do to ease the monotony of the day. In time you will be so preoccupied with doing something you enjoy.
I too lost my husband of 25 years happily married. A part of me died too.. coming back from that was over a 3 year struggle. But know that it may not be that long for you.
I bought paint and started painting. It fills the day and is an outlet for my emotions.
I pray daily asking for guidance too.
I hope this helps..

Moving Through the Seven Stages of Grief

When a heart breaks, you’re left gasping for air. After a while you seem fine, yet fall apart unexpectedly at random moments, sanity seemingly forsaken. There’s a saying that when a heart breaks, it cracks to allow golden love to shine through onto others. Do you see the value in going through this?It may not feel like it now, but grief is an honor. It is an honor to feel that much, to have loved that much. It teaches you compassion, gratitude, resilience, and the importance of grabbing life by…See More
