I am 56 and after losing my husband I have lost interest in most things like going the the beach and swimming and looking at the ocean because my husband won't be with me any more and watching anything on TV that we both once enjoyed together or listening to music; so I just do what I need to each day to get by.
About my Loss:
My 61 year old husband passed away on January 22, 2010 from a reoccurance of esophageal cancer. He was in anguish for 3 years but we didn't know his time was ending until December 18th of 09, my emotional pain started on 1/22/10 when Dan's life ended and I am still in shock I didn't know life was going to be like this.

Yeah, it was a horrible day, that's for sure. My mom was in hospice for about a month at the hospice, but then she moved back home and had in home hospice care. She was doing so well for a while there, but really started to take a downward spiral in December. I knew it was coming, I guess I just didn't want to admit it. She wasn't ready to go. She didn't want to leave me or my kids (her grandkids). She cried that she wouldn't be at my daughter's wedding one day. Just so unfair, but I try to focus on God as I know she would want me to...

What you say here about your day sounds like my miserable daily schedule:

I can relate to what you are saying: the activities that Joseph and I loved to do together are now very painful to do on my own. But it seems that you have started taking baby steps in the right direction by starting to run again.…"
That is quite an accomplishment! My husband was my running partner and we did a lot of charity runs together. My last run was 2 months after he died and dedicated the run to him. Since then I have tried running alone but it was too…"
