I lost my father due to SMOKING and my husband to CANCER. My father passed away in 2005 and my husband in 2007. My husband an I were together for 27 wonderful years. He treated me like I was the love of his life. Our relationship was amazing, I think that is why it is so hard to let go... I have not even thought about moving on with another. Although it is very lonely, sometimes i pray that when the time is right, the lord blesses me with another man to share my life with...many blessings to you, and i hope you find a great support group.
I can honestly say that I feel your pain. It will never go away, but it will get more tolerable. I have more better days now than sad ones. I have a great support system at church. They knew my husband so it makes it easy to talk with them. I am reminded to remember what a great man my husband was and to remember the good times we had together. I can cry at any time but when the tears flow I know Dell would not want me to be sad. The night before he went into the hospital he told me "I LOVE YOU WITH MY WHOLE HEART". That was his last words to me and he passed away three months later. I look at pictures and can feel him sometimes smiling back. I can not move past him yet, but I can survive in my life. I know what you are feeling and you are not alone but try to find a happy place in your heart. God Bless You, Gina

"Hi Miriam, You have my deepest admiration and empathy. I don't have any family left to speak of. For years there was no one to talk to about my daily life. Although I found it difficult to be open with people and preferred to help them rather…"
"Miriam, thanks for what you’ve said here, think it will be helpful to many other people here and I hope writing it down will help you as well. What you say about the way you miss your uncle, the loss of rituals and of his expressions of…"
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

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
"Dona, I am so sorry for your pain. A difficult relationship like yours always leaves all sorts of conflicting feelings that are hard to sort out. I hope that the support you receive here will help you find your way to a better place."
"Hi, I'm brand new, too. I needed some place to talk out the grief that other people don't understand and don't really want to listen to. Hopefully, this will be a helpful place for both of us. Whatever your loss, I…"
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
