joe kelly,

No more doctors for me, either. Nothing that will prolong this farcical hell of a "life".

I identify with so much said here.  It's been only ten weeks but seems like as the time passes it just gets worse.  I know that my mental state isn't very good but I too think that until I die, I'll be in agony.  Every minute of the day I think about her as though I'm waiting for her to somehow appear before me and the reality of that she is gone sinks in.  I can't seem to accept that.  I won't hurt my children or grandchildren by doing away with myself, but I can't wait till I go and hope we're together again.  No more doctors for me.

Hi all

Maxey i totally get you i feel lost without my partner, we live together for over 15years and did everything together. Iv recently come back from a holiday as i thought it would do the kids good to get away, it didn't do me any good though as i still came home to a lonely house. I just want to hear his voice and hold him, i felt guilty being away as he should have been there with us what with it being the younger twos first holiday. I cant see the light at the end of this dark tunnel but at the same time i know hed want me to take care of our kids as that was the one thing that he was afraid of, what with happen to them if we weren't here. My heart aches everyday and i find myself crying all the time, i don't even want to go out of the house but force myself to. I hate the silence the night brings when the kids are in bed when really he should be on the sofa talking about football or shouting at the TV for some silly reason, i hate the fact my 14 year old don't leave his room to be the first downstairs to watch telly anymore until he hears me moving about, i hate that he's lost half his friends as he wont leave me in fear of something happening to me too. I hate seeing the sadness in the younger ones eyes knowing i cant make they're pain go away or make it better, iv listened to them cry in their sleep asking for daddy to stay with us, 

People on the outside don't see all this and always comment about how well we are doing, well its easy to put a smile on your face for two minutes

If wasn't for the people on thls website, I would lose my mind. We are all in the same boat, this is my 5th Easter without my Husband and I choose to be alone with my thoughts of Easter past with him. Picture with his son Bob

Hello to everyone in this group, I hope you are all managing to get through the continuing days and nights. I just wanted to say how I am comforted in my worst moments by knowing you are out there, knowing what this is like. If anyone had told me that you lose all your friends in this process too, I wouldn’t have believed life could be so cruel. But perhaps I’m exaggerating to try to express my pain. Perhaps it’s just that friendship feels so irrelevant and inadequate now. I wish you all as many times of enjoyment and comfort as are possible. With love, Alice

Hi Maxey,

You don't need to shape up Maxey, because I know I never will.

Comment by Maxey on March 19, 2018 at 1:52pm


i have'nt been around for a while.  I had the ridiculous notion that over time I would get better, but that has not happened.  I think, if anything, I am getting a bit "insane" thinking of how meaningless my life has become.

The few friends I have made since I moved are nice, but I have no inclination to do things with them.  When I do, I am wishing it to be over so I can go home.  When I am home, I then realize how lonely I am and begin the downward spiral of crying and feeling sorry for myself.  I then start thinking, "what if death is just that, and I will not see my love again?".  That makes me so upset that I think I am going to totally lose my mind.

Nothing seems to interest me anymore; I sleep until noon or later to make the days go by.  This surely is "hell" on earth!  Every time I get a pain, I am hoping that it is a sign that I am going to get my wish and die.

Sorry to be a downer, but I am really beginning to worry about my mental health.  I thought I was doing so much better a few months ago, but now I am in an even worse place.  I miss my husband and all the things we used to do.  My neighbor's were telling me how they were planning a cruise and how excited they were.  I had to leave because I could feel the tears welling up.  We used to love to travel and planned something each years when we retired.  Now there is nothing to look forward to, and I am ashamed that I envy others who have their spouses and their happiness.

Wow!  What a wonderful life!?  I hope someone can reply and make me know that this is just not me and I should "shape up"!

While I was sleeping

It has been 4 years since my mom died.  I still think about it every day, and can't seem to look past it.  I know I need to go grocery shopping.  I know I need to entertain my 4 year old but before I do anything today I want to share what has helped me tremendously in making my mom's death easier to live with.The first thing that helps is remembering her and being stubborn about NOT letting her go.  I don't have to let my mom go.  She already went.  The thing I do have to do is admit how I feel…See More
