I just lost my Love of my life husband to Lung Cancer yesterday.

When we got the results on Monday they said that he had 4 months to live and on Thursday the turned around and said that he had a couple of days to live and then yesterday afternoon he passed away.

The "How Are You?" Question

One of my friends (who hasn't contacted me for weeks) sent me a cutesy picture of a cat and a message which asked "how are you?". Cat picture aside, I am tired of this question, particularly when I feel the person asking it just wants to hear I am feeling better. As if that is possible for me five months after my husband's suicide. After I lost the love of my life, my joy and my happiness.I don't know how to answer the how are you question anymore, but I will be damned if I'm going to put on a…See More
