About Me:
59-yo grandmother and homemaker
About my Loss:
My husband of 25 years, we celebrated our 25th Anniversary on New Year's Eve in Las Vegas, had a wonderful time. Immediately after we got home, my husband got sick, was hospitalized in ICU and died three weeks later from the FLU and double pneumonia. I am all alone, all family members live very far away. We just moved to this new house barely 3 years ago, I don't know anybody here. I'm not handling this very well.

Dear Lynn, you seem such a positive person until you suffered the loss of your husband had you aways had an upbeat view on life?  Mark  and I complimented each other if had such a great sense of humour and imagination whereas I am more serious and bookish.  I miss him so much, I keep thinking back to Christmas I had no idea of what was ahead for me.  My brother came from London and helped me sort his things out, as long as his toothbrush etc where in the bathroom I kept expecting him back.  You think you have accepted eventually that they are physical gone but just for an instance I sometimes forget especially if I have had some vivid dream.  At this point in time I cannot see a future without him it just seems so bleak I feel for everyone going through their losses of loved ones.  When I lost my mum 4 years ago I never for one moment thought I would have to go through all this grief again.

Mark use to buy me ornaments of fairies and angels so your photographs are very apt.

My warmest wishes.

Dear Lynn

I Iove the photographs you have posted you look so happy with your husband. At the moment I can not bring myself to look at any of Mark's I seem to deliberately try not to bring his face to mind to avoid another way of getting upset.  At this moment  I cannot image how you have managed to go on and be so supportive of myself and others on this site.  Lately I feel I am feeling just as bad as I did back in January.  Feeling so alone is just a bad place to be.

My warmest wishes to you.

It was very kind to respond.  I expect you know and appreciate how alone and lonely I feel.  I just feel there is no  point to anything any more and I drag myself out of bed each day to look after my cats, one is quite elderly, 18 years old, the other on about 12 years she was a stray  so not quite sure.

I have been going to bereavement councelling but all she kept saying last week was ' grief takes as long as it takes' which I felt very unhelpful.  I do not seem to be making any progress.  I have spent the weekend mostly in tears and the pain nearly breaks me in two.

It is only 4 years in July since I lost my mum and I was only coming to terms with that last year.  My dad passes exactly 21 years ago today.  It is so heart breaking not having Mark here to share all this with.

My most kindest thoughts to you and my admiration for your perseverence.

Its tough Lynn.  My parents are married for 53 years so it is really tough to digest as I can see.  It might help moving back to the old neighbourhood.

Totally tired of my life and lack of emotions.

My mother had a stroke in October of 2015. She changed over night due to the aphasia and brain damage. She was a new person, half of who she once was. I began grieving my mother in October. I turned of all emotion and detached myself during the caregiving. It was just way too hard for me to deal with her conditions and my father's emotions. My family are gifted with abilities, mine was empathy and third sight. Most may not believe in that stuff, but it is more than real to me due to years of…See More

I'm new here and going through a very hard time.

Hello everyone. I'm new to this site.I lost my grandfather in June of 2017. A few weeks later, my grandmother passed away. My grandmother and I were very close. She was more of a mother to me than a grandmother. It was very hard on me. Only three months after the death of my grandma, on December 18th of 2017, my father passed away very suddenly and unexpectedly. I never got to say goodbye. I lost the three most important people in my life within a few short months and I am having a very hard…See More

it's been one year

Tomorrow, it'll be one year since Shelby died. No matter how things seem at any given time, the darkness has set in.  i just can't shake it.  i've continued having physical issues going on, and haven't been able to get in to see the doctor, yet--my appointment is for Monday.  i'm tired of trying to keep going.  i still haven't even begun to work on the planning of Shelby's going away party, yet, either.  *sigh  At this point, my hope is that once i can get straightened out, or at least find out…See More
