I can definitely relate to feeling lost. It has been a little over 2 months since I lost my husband to complications from treatment for acute myeloid leukemia. I mostly feel numb and like a part of me is missing. I go to work, have…"
"Linda and Bluebird I have been feeling the same way. At work I am getting in all sorts of holiday items and it is hard for me to look at it or think of the holidays. This will be my first without my husband. I'm not quite sure…"
"Alexis I am so sorry for your loss, I thought I was a young widow until I read your profile. There seems to be quite a few passings related to unforeseen complications. It makes me very upset and scared for other people. My…"
This is for anyone who has lost somone to cancer. I lost my adopted Mom to breast cancer some years ago. She was everything I could have asked for. She loved me because I was just me. She also loved my family and children as if they were her own.See More
"Jim, I am also new to this group and to this experience. I lost my husband of 20 years a little over a month ago. I too worry about how to be there four our 19 yr old daughter. As far as how to find something positive each day, that is challenging.…"

My husband passed away a month ago from complications related to treatment from acute myeloud leukemia. We had been married for just over 20 years but had been together for almost 25 years. His death was a bit of a shock because his cancer was in remission and he had been doing good up until a couple months before he died.

Alexis I am so sorry for your loss, I thought I was a young widow until I read your profile. There seems to be quite a few passings related to unforeseen complications. It makes me very upset and scared for other people. My husbands infection would not respond to antibiotics, who even knew that this was a possibility in this day and age? And your husband being in remission and doing well prior must have left you speechless. I am having a hard time getting through a day, I decided to just strive for an hour at a time. Our daughter is 14 and she is just...angry, all the time. She thinks I should have stopped crying by now. I hope your daughter since she is a bit older is offering you the support you need. God bless and be well.

"I had a relationship with someone for 5 years. I am married, and wasn't ready to leave my husband. So this man and I met infrequently (every month or 2) and talked a lot through text, but I felt like we had a very close bond. He finally told me…"
This is for anyone who has lost their lover to death and you were the other woman/other man in their life. We have to grieve in silence. I can't find any support groups and feel like I'm the only one going through this situationSee More

Your wife, the love of your life, is BEAUTIFUL! And it does seem like it was destiny that brought the two of you together. Beautiful story of the two of you meeting for the first time.
Like Linda says, we have to be grateful that God sent us…"
"She was sent to save me. There was a fate of that. Too many coincidences to be otherwise. I was born to a terrible family relationship in one State and She was born to a good stable family relationship. We both moved to a…"
Thanks for the cudos. I know every one of us is trying to cope with the loss of our Beloved Spouses. I too cannot do the things we shared and that's just about everything. Our likes were the same, so the only thing I did…"

"I am so grateful that each of you share what you are doing and how you are dealing with your loss at whatever stage in months or years. In the past I never had to worry about looking for company for misery. I wasn't miserable.…"
What you say here about your day sounds like my miserable daily schedule:
"My schedule is pretty much go to the bedroom between 1 to 4am and most often I sleep until 11 or noon. And if I have to get up quickly I find I end up…"
I can relate to what you are saying: the activities that Joseph and I loved to do together are now very painful to do on my own. But it seems that you have started taking baby steps in the right direction by starting to run again.…"
That is quite an accomplishment! My husband was my running partner and we did a lot of charity runs together. My last run was 2 months after he died and dedicated the run to him. Since then I have tried running alone but it was too…"
"I'm in a constant state of paralysis. I seem only to be able to do things when I know I have to. Simple things go undone. Dust builds up on my bedroom furniture. I look at it and say to myself, I should dust. But…"
