Susan B,  I am so sorry.  To try and live without that person who was by your side for 52 years is a living nightmare.  I had 35 married years but 55 of knowing him (since second grade).  That much history buries the person left behind.  At least it did me.  I can honestly say that over the past seven years I have gotten better at functioning and doing the every day tasks of living.  But inside I am still so broken.  At first I could identify triggers that would make me breakdown......form grocery shopping to standing gin line at the post pretty much everything.  I cried all the time.  I still cry, I can get through sometimes three days but something will knock me back down.  I have had to resign myself to how this is for me.  I don't know if anyone cries as much as me coping with their grief after a long time but it still hits me.  

People here will tell their truth about how they manage their sorrow.  The biggest thing I have learned from this site is to know that I am not crazy for the feelings I have gone through and the ones I still have.  I have learned there is NO timeline for how long one might still feel deep loss.  I have learned my loss will never end.  And the day I am able to depart is the day I now look forward to.  I have been ready for that day since my husband died. I don't need to "experience" any more of life.  I had everything I wanted.  I just miss him..........

My Story

When I was twelve my mother was murdered then my beloved sweet grandmother died when I was 18. My maternal grandfather died when I was 22. My maternal grandmother died when I was 33 and my final living parent/grandparent died when I was 35.  I lived with a lot of loss most of it came at a sudden clip.  I'm left with incredible feeling of loneliness even though I've been married for 20+ years and have two wonderful children.  It's tough to share my true feelings with my wife because it's so hard…See More

My Story

When I was twelve years old, my mother was brutally murdered during a robbery of our home.  I came within minutes of finding her body but by sheer chance I didn't.  It has been over 35 years since that day but it still effects my life today.  As a child, I went through the trial of the man convicted of killing my beautiful mother then as a man I went through his parole process finally his death from illness in prison. See More
