 It’s been a little over 6 weeks (May 8, 2016) since I lost Joe to cancer and it really, really hurts. My heart/chest ache constantly and I feel nervous all the time. I am on Anti-depressants, but I can’t tell if that is helping me or not. His cremains are in my living room next to his picture and I talk to him in that way daily. I miss him so much. We went through the hospice home care for the last 2 weeks of his life and I saw him slowly and then quickly decline in health in our home. I know from him and others that he did not want me to hurt. He told me before that he was worried about me and wondered who would take care of me.  I thought I could handle it and I told him that I would be okay. I’m not. The only comfort I get is when I think that he is no longer always tired, or sick, or in pain. He is now with God and his passed relatives. I now live alone in a house that was already too big for us and it feels so empty. He used to cook meals for me while I worked. Now, I don’t even cook for myself and have problems keeping up with chores and daily life. We really didn’t establish a friendship network, so I don’t have many close friends to confide in and my siblings all live far away. I did have friends over this weekend to keep me company and it just was not the same.  I have lost my parents and others, but this far outweighs the sadness, loneliness, and desperation I am feeling now. I am used to calling Joe every day for whatever reason, just to hear his voice. I now cry a lot when I want to do just that. There’s no one at the other end now. Please someone, tell me what you may have done to lessen the pain. I do still work, but it only preoccupies part of my days and I find I don’t talk as much at work because I am not “out” at work. Bless you all.

On December 2, 2014 I lost my loving partner after 20 years. I am feeling so empty and sad!!!! I don't know what to do without him. I can't even go grocery shopping for myself because I always thought of him when I shopped. I just wanna die!!!! I wanna get drunk and use drugs to cope....but I haven't. When will I be able to live again.

I am a little angry with God. And it scares me to say that...HELP ME

I lost my partner of 31 years Dec 18, 2011.  I go to her grave site every wk...and most of the time everyday.  I often bring coffee and chit chat with her..sometimes I go get a couple hot dogs...I am not even a hot dog fan..I find that this helps me.  The other day I brought a rose for the 18th..making it  months.   I talk everyday with Dot..weather I am home or out.  I feel she is still with me.   I am still going through some things....I ..for now anyway...am not feelinng so much like an intruder etc......but at times it is strange..when I find things that deal w her childhood and family etc...here is another little video of our 1st camping trip w the camper we just got.  We use to go tenting..then I just got a deal for this camper..thank GOD she had a chance to enjoy some time in it  .http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2FMjTd6SdRY&feature=g-upl&co...
