About my Loss:
I lost my husband very suddenly to a heart attack at age 54. He died exactly like his father did at the same age. Apparently he had symptoms that he didn't take seriously and never told me.

Excercising to Help with Grief

I went to a spin class last first time.  I thought it would help to get some of this inner "whatever it is" out of me. It was a spiritually based spin class and really it helped alot.  I found myself enjoying something for the first time since losing my husband and doing something healthy at the same time.  I think my husband would be smiling about this.  I somehow felt close to him while I was doing it.  I will definately go back.  I can highly recommend somehow getting some…

Facing the Loss

Last night my sons and I went to the restaurant that my husband and I had our last date in 7 weeks ago. The next day he passed away.  I thought that by going there, which I was afraid to do, it would help me face his death.  I don't know if this was the right thing to do. It only made me miss him more.  I am an emotional wreck although on the outside I appear together.  I cry everyday and then go to work or go do my chores but I have suddenly felt all alone in this.  I guess this is because…

Happy Birthday in Heaven

Happy Birthday my sweet man.  Your first in Heaven.  I miss you so much and having the 4th of July without you was so hard. It's such an "in your face" holiday. I made it through somehow.  I know you are watching over us and I feel you directing us as a family like you always did.  God is with us also.  I am thankful to God that he gave me such a strong, wonderful, beautiful husband to share 33 years with.  You are truly and angel now, just as you were to so many hear on earth.  I will live…

Missing you so....Almost 6 weeks

I can't believe it's been almost 6 weeks since I've lost you.  I know you are in Heaven with God and your family, and I feel almost selfish for wishing you were here with me.  I am trying to do all the things around the house that you always wanted to get to but didn't have time for because you were so busy working and spending time with me.  Precious time with me...I am so glad we did things the way we did.  You were right...the house could wait...the chores could wait...but we couldn't…

Hi Debra,

I have read a little about the loss of your husband from your profile, but I was wondering if you would be interested in sharing a little more of your story with me. I am part of a research team at Saint Louis University that is looking at end of life decision making and family communication. If you are interested in taking part in an interview, please let me know.

Hi Debra, Hope you are doing ok. This was week 7 without my better half.

He always made it easy for me and like your husband the house and chores could wait. Always had time to spend with me no matter how busy he was.

I just hate having to go through all the paperwork and setting up new accounts without his name on them. Every new account feels like one more step away from him. He's the one that made it all possible afterall.

Glad to see you got into a spinning class. I too, started to go to excerise classes with friends from work. It does help get all that energy that doesn't have it's "old normal" out.

Have a good week. Your sons sound like good men. They are the true gifts of love and God.

I know that this is really hard for you. I have found that keeping his love and memories alive has helped me so far. He was so close to me that we were best friends. We could finish each other sentence and knew what the other was thinking. I think we were connected on another level. and these are things that makes me smile and find a reason to continue each day. I know its not fair and I believe in God and that he is heaven. If you ever need someone to talk to, share stories, memories, laugh or even cry with im here

"I can understand how that makes it even more difficult, having become a couple on that occasion. I don't want to live without him, and I just don't feel that will ever change. So, it all seems so futile to go through this every day. "
