Profile Information

About Me:
I am lost without my wife. Its that simple.
About my Loss:
I'm 69 years old, I lost my dear wife to cancer on September 18 last year 2014, after she had a 10 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, please see recent picture.

Thank you

Michael UK

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

Hi Michael
I accepted your friend request. I feel much like you do. Lost. Id prefer to die but don't have the guts. I really can't see going on without my wife Roxanne who died a month ago.

Hi Michael, how can we set this up. Not sure why Skype is not working for us.

Lost a great friend.

I recently received news that my best friend passed away from heroin laced with fentanyl at age 31 on jan 10th. I was in shock and felt like i was in a bad dream. I hadn't heard from him in almost 6 months and figured he was out slamming dope because in the past he would tend to avoid me and my mother (who was like a 2nd mom to him) because he didn't want us seeing him strung out and didn't want to ruin our relationship of trust. May 15th, i arrive home from a job interview and check facebook…See More
