I hate waiting too but for me whenever i think i cant wait to be bruial next to him its gets me happy.. i wish i would hurry up n get old faster n get extreme illness so i can be with him. I hate when ppl tell you to enjoy life its so pretty esp in summer i said nope not without my hubby i rather suffer and be miserable and depression to extreme that maybe just maybe i will suffer illness also i don't take care of my health either so maybe it will speed up

I almost feel like I'm sliding backwards. The longer I am without Bill, the less I'm able to deal with things. Things that really shouldn't bring anxiety,DO. I find that  am more fearful of what could happen instead of being more positive. I could always count on Bill to deal with any car, home or technical issues. Now I obsess over it and am never sure I've done right. My adult children live with me and my son is pretty good at fixing things but I don't trust him as much as I did my husband. It's not fair to them.

Hi Michael,

I feel exactly as you do, I am nothing without my Husband Julian, it's been four years. I am sick of pretending to be happy and am dying on the inside. Nothing makes me happy anymore. I hate waking up each morning and know I have to go another day without him.

A message from Michael Thompson to all members of Losing Someone to Cancer on Online Grief Support - A Social Community!

In one way it seems like 5 minutes. In another way it seems like a hundred years. My days are filled with despair. My wife died from bowel cancer in 2014. 2 and a half years later I remain so terribly lost without her guidance, her love, and what we shared, my wife had a huge influence on me in so many areas. She was a class act, she was far too good for me, and I told her this because it was part of our rapport, her answer was that she knew, and then she laughed. Without my lady by my side I am nothing, worthless, this is how I feel. I know that dying is a part of life, but we never think about it until it happens. 

Since my wife's passing, I have lost interest in everything, nothing means anything anymore.

When im walking our little Yorkie, I meet women in my situation, and they all say that men find it harder.

I would like to throw this open for discussion.

Thank you for reading.

It has been 4 years and I still miss my husband every hour of everyday.

Comment by Michael on April 16, 2017 at 11:35am

Katherine, your mom sounds just like mine.  I thought I was the only one who had a mom that loved you for who you are because the people I know never truly understood me but her.  You brought back memories as though mu mom was here with me right now.

THOSE THREE WORDS: "I LOVE YOU"

Annette's been dead just under eight months. My grieving hasn't stopped. I try but I keep getting worse mentally and physically. My groin has swollen more and now due to the fluid build its reaching past my knees. Grotesque doesn't come close to the sight of my misshapen body. I am a freak who is stared at whenever I manage to find the slight strength to go out. So it got me to thinking. As homely as I am, as disgusting as I have become, I remember those three words my wife and I lived with…See More

Mankind’s Fight Against Mortality

NOTE: My blogs are not posted with the intention of promoting any organization or religion. The goal of these blogs are to provide the same comfort I received for the death of a loved one. Enjoy.Death is a fearsome enemy. We fight it with all our might. We may try to deny it when it strikes someone dear to us. Or, in the exuberance of youth, we may imagine that the enemy will never come to claim us—a delusion we cling to as long as we can.Few thought more about immortality than the ancient…See More
