" I am at my wits end with loneliness.  Losing my wife in 2014 has taken away a certain confidence, and this happens to those left behind. Being married is much more than a ring, it is a friend, and companion, someone who knows you better…"

Profile Information

About Me:
I am lost without my wife. Its that simple.
About my Loss:
I'm 70 years old, I lost my dear wife to cancer on September 18 2014, after she had a 11 month battle with this rotten disease.

The quiet is deafening. The loneliness is equally so. There is now no rapport to carry me through the day.

When you share a huge part of your life with someone like a wife or a husband, and they suddenly die for whatever reason, everything changes in your life and world, the little things you might have taken for granted each day, became the big things. There is now no rapport, no one to talk with about the things that you talked about, it is like suddenly being in a jail with no windows or doors, you are mentally and emotionally, trapped.

My wife was a Yorkshire Terrier lover all her life, to her these dogs were'nt just dogs, they were little people, part of the family. Although I know I am no compensation for my wife's lap, and all the kisses she got from our now two year old Yorkie pup, I promised my wife I would take care of her as she would have done

Thank you

Michael UK

Thank you for posting your tribute article - so evocative and insightful.  What you said about things you did together and also things you did alone being stripped of all meaning is exactly true.  Everything is emptied out.

Hello Michael I was writing to you to check in see how you been doing lately I am not doing very well this month is my husband's birthday honestly I've been a wreck since New Year's and I haven't been on this site for a bit so I wanted to reach out and see how you were doing I hope you are well

Hi Michael,

I just saw you friend request and have accepted. I lost my husband of 21 years to cancer in April this year to cancer. He was 45. I miss him terribly. I know the fear, it seems when Jimmy died everything has decided it wants to break around here.

Hi Michael how are you doing today my cold is getting better just trying to get through these next few days can you tell me how the Skype works I'm not real familiar with it only talked with my daughter once on it, i've only had this phone since January so I'm still kind of learning to navigate it.take care

I understand what you mean. My fears have expanded. I don't fear for myself exactly...I worry about my adult children(who live with me) driving in bad weather. Doesn't matter if it's rain or snow(which we've had a lot of). I worry about things breaking down around the house. I worry about making the right decisions.  I think it's just that we don't have that support that we had with our spouses.  I was 33 when I got married and had lived alone and managed quite well...so where has that confidence gone?

Hi Michael hope you are doing ok today also wanted to let you know what I do when there are thunderstorms because I am terrified of them I listen to my husbands favorite music loud it helps for a little while keep my mind off the thunderstorms or I look through pictures of earlier times until I exhaust myself to sleep I don't know if these suggestions can help you I do these things because I don't take medication of any kind I don't believe in antidepressants and most medicines I can't take because I have sleep apnea The reason I don't believe in antidepressants if you were wondering is because my sister committed suicide on antidepressants. I also know since my husband passed I have an extremely hard time going in public I don't know if these are things that are happening because he's gone or because of the grief I don't really know maybe that's why you're experiencing what you're experiencing I really don't know i'm sorry hope I was of some help have a good day my friend
