Marjorie,

I rescued her the year after my Husband died. She was 9 years old and she has done nothing but bring joy to my life. She is my companion.

Marjorie,

The only reason I see my therapist is to kept me sane and I can talk with her about my feelings, my family and friends just do not understand why I am still grieving. Thank God for her or I don't know how I would be able to go on without my Julian. I do have a dog Babie J would gives me a lot of comfort.

Marjorie,

I made that statement to Maxey because despite seeing the therapist. I was so close to my Husband, he was my soulmate and the love of my life. I just feel it will last until I die. I go on with life, but am just existing.

Marjorie,

The first year my Husband died I saw a grief counselor given by Hospice, I was still not doing good after a year so my grief counselor suggested a therapist and gave me her name. You can ask your doctor to give you some names and just make an appointment to see one.

Marjorie,

Yes, I have had complicated grief for five years, it gets a little better every year, I see a Psychotherapist and a Psychiatrist for meds. I am told by them that is does not last forever, I hope so.

I will be 64 in March and I feel the same way. Right now I am near panic because weather tomorrow(I live in the States) forecasts a rather major snowstorm. My son faces a 1 hour commute and was already in an accident last week and now needs to drive MY car. For some reason God is really testing me and mine. I used to be a more positive/upbeat person. Now I just worry. Having that other person really did bring balance to our lives and made challenges easier...

Please don't measure your grief against anyone else's. Each of us grieves differently. I'm sorry your grief overwhelmed you to the point of having a breakdown. Sometimes I think I may have one, too. Things that happen in everyday life I now find difficult to handle. I  agonize over making decisions. I worry about everything. Thank God for a couple of good friends who are always willing to listen. Just be kind to yourself!

Marjorie, I'm so sorry you have had to join us on this because it means you've lost your other half! I"m 3 years into this "new normal".  I don't have the numbness I had in the first year. I'm able to "function" in everyday life but...not a day goes by where I don't wish for my old life back. I want my husband and the life we had together...I retired months after losing Bill because I was sucked dry. I am a nurse and just didn't want to be responsible for anyone else's life. My 2 adult children live with me but I'm afraid of smothering them because they are all I have...all I care about. Let yourself grieve. There is no time limit on grief and only those of us who have experienced losing our other half understand that. How long were you together? And how much do your friends and family support you? Please know that this is the perfect place to voice how you feel and noone will judge you....

Loss of my husband

My husband died 17 months ago of severe acute pancreatitis. He was perfectly well one day and the next day I had to drive him to hospital with severe gut pain.3 days later we were told there was nothing more they could do for him and we had to withdraw the life support. The enzymes of the pancreas destroys itself and the other surrounding organs. They said it was caused by drink but he only drank half a bottle of wine a night. The first few months I was 0.K. Then I crashed and had to be…

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
