Thank you for sharing. It was exactly the same with me. I came home from work to find him in bed, ice cold, extremeties black and blue and a foam coming out of his mouth. God knows I wish I could get that picture out of my head but I'm afraid it is engrained there forever (I am however glad that is was me and not my 8 year oold that went in the bedroom first so I was able to shield him from seeing daddy at all like that). We had been married for almost 12 years and together for almost 14. Before him I thought that I would never find anyone to love me and vice versa, then he came into my life. I finally felt complete and happy. I knew that God had sent him specifically for me. We've been through so much together (ups and downs) and that only brought us closer. He has been with me my entire adult life until now (met him when I was 18 and he just passed in October). I really feel like a zombie just going through the motions of day to day living and putting a mask on of strength and comfort for our son but my comfort is no longer here. As I have said, my son is the only thing getting me through this life- if not for him I probably would never get out of bed and just be consumed with grief. I am sorry that you had your love taken so soon in your relationship that you don't have as many good memories to grab and hold onto for dear life- that kind of helps me a little. Thank you for your kind words and I hope you can find comfort and solice in your loss as well. We are all here for each other.

Please someone tell me that eventually it  does get easier. I know it will always be with me, especially being the one who found the body, but I just feel like the emotion of happiness has been ripped from me and I am now just existing as I move through this world without my husband.

Dec 6 2014 God took my soul mate on Dec 27th we would have , celebrated our 28th anniversary instead I spent it alone crying and wondering why God took him from me we met when we were 12 and 13 we spent our youth together and we were suppose grow old together it was six weeks after we first went to the doctor bc he was not feeling good that he was gone and I was alone sad upset depressed I don't sleep well any more or why else would I be up this hour of the night I miss him so much

Thank you for your support. Yes it is really hard when my personal safe space (everyone has their space where they feel absolutley comfortable and nothing can touch them) was my husband's arms. I hope everyone here can find their own new safe space as I have to. Prayers for everyone.

Hi Jon-Paul,

I also lost my perfect wife In February of 2013. One thing that I loved so much about her was the way she loved me. That made loving her the so very easy. She was always doing something for me. Thinking of me in some way. Leaving me little notes. That would say" I love you more today". Getting me treats at the store, like peanuts, gatorade and pretzels. That she knew I loved. She was smart and a helpmate, friend and lover.  Now I and just devastated, heart broken and lonely with out her. Hang in there. I know it hard.

Thank you for sharing Karen. I'm so sorry for your loss. I'm dead inside without my wife who also passed three months ago. I can't imagine how hurt she'd be if it was I who passed and her left to deal with the grief. 

Comment by Karen T. on January 12, 2015 at 10:25am

Losing a spouse is so difficult. Especially the longer that you were with them and the stronger of a connection your had with them. My husband and I were together for 13.5 years, married for 11.5 years. He was not only my husband he was truly my best friend. It has now been 3 months since I found him passed ( a memory I wish I could just wipe from my brain) and whenever things happen my first reaction is still "oh wait until I tell my husband, he is not going to believe this" (or some form of that) and then it hits, I don't have him to tell things to anymore. I am so lost and only at 32 years old I feel like I am just floating aimlesssly through this world- the only thing keeping me going is I have a 9 year old to raise and take care of- of course it has become exponentially dificult with the loss of my husband- but I am trying day by day and right now that is all I can do. Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers- I am very glad that I found this sight where I can open up about how I feel to those who truly do understand. Thank you.

Healing Repetition

An uncle in our family committed suicide.  For five years his wife, Aunt Alice, said the same things over and over again to anyone who would listen.  We are a loving family, so we listened and said the same hopefully comforting things back to her again and again.  And after five years she was done and could move on.  I hope it doesn't take five years, but I need to talk about my Uncle Jim and my cousin Paul and probably repeat myself a lot. It took a long time to develop my relationship with…See More

Hello, a little bit about me.

Two months ago, my mom committed suicide. As of now, this has to be one of the hardest things I have ever dealt with in my life. I hope that through this forum I may be able to just reach out to someone who can kind of understand what my situation is like.My friends try to talk to me (and I do reach out to them) but I feel that the situation I am in is a really heavy thing to talk about (basically I don't want to rope my friends into my troubles, nor do I want to be a burden to them). I talk to…See More

The Little Things

This morning there was a crescent moon.  I always called it a "fingernail moon," but my cousin Paul called it a "toenail moon."  I got all choked up seeing it.  Then the Valentine cards are out at Walmart.  He loved all the holidays, and I always sent him cards.  But no more.  More tears to fight back.  Sometimes his love for you would overflow, and he would just have to give you a big hug and tell you that he loved you right then and there.  I have never had anyone else do that for me.  I knew…See More
