Bad day

I just got my husband's remains from the funeral home.  Now all that's left of him is sitting there on the fireplace in a simple box.  I feel like I'm going through slow torture and I just wish God…Continue

Profile Information

About Me:
I've lost many people throughout my life. By the time I was 26 I had lost all grandparents, both parents and various aunts and uncles, along with many pets. Now I'm 47 and just lost my husband and I'm all alone again.
About my Loss:
I lost my beloved husband of 15 years on 4/27/12. He was only 51 and we should have had many more years together. He was my best friend and meant everything to me. We were never able to have children, so it was just the two of us. We both lost our parents early and neither of us had a lot of family. I feel so lost and alone without him. He was the only one who truly understood me. It feels like nothing matters anymore. I don't know how to get through this - the pain is unbearable.

Thank you for inviting me as a Friend, you are the first one. My husband's bday was 4/27, he would've been 64, a very sad day for me too.

Hey Joanne,

Trust me when I say I know how you feel after only 3 weeks. I felt so alone and wondered if I could go on another day but I did. Yes its going to be one the hardest things you'll ever do but you'll get through it.  I know the days are lonely and sad but that's part of the grieving process.  Just remember all the good times you two shared when you get down and perhaps it will shed a little light on you.  Remember to take a deep breath when you are at you lowest point.  And remember too that there are people who love you..

"So sorry to hear of your experience with aphasia...how scary and awful! Don’t know if this is what you meant by almost comedic but there is definitely a nasty black humour vibe to inflicting that problem on a radio broadcaster of all people,…"

Dark Night and Day of the Soul

Hello Morgan, Bluebird, Linda at al. I'm sorry it has been so awfully long since my last contact.  A Year? I have always read the posts, though and have felt the same horrible burning pain I have the last, nearly 5 years since Nancy left me. I have had a couple of tia's including a lengthy bout of "aphasia". It was almost comedic as I couldn't talk but kept trying to tell the emt's which hospital to drop me at. This year, I have come to the concludion will be my year, 2020 will be the year I…See More
