I can definitely relate to feeling lost. It has been a little over 2 months since I lost my husband to complications from treatment for acute myeloid leukemia. I mostly feel numb and like a part of me is missing. I go to work, have…"
"Linda and Bluebird I have been feeling the same way. At work I am getting in all sorts of holiday items and it is hard for me to look at it or think of the holidays. This will be my first without my husband. I'm not quite sure…"
"Alexis I am so sorry for your loss, I thought I was a young widow until I read your profile. There seems to be quite a few passings related to unforeseen complications. It makes me very upset and scared for other people. My…"
This is for anyone who has lost somone to cancer. I lost my adopted Mom to breast cancer some years ago. She was everything I could have asked for. She loved me because I was just me. She also loved my family and children as if they were her own.See More
"Jim, I am also new to this group and to this experience. I lost my husband of 20 years a little over a month ago. I too worry about how to be there four our 19 yr old daughter. As far as how to find something positive each day, that is challenging.…"

My husband passed away a month ago from complications related to treatment from acute myeloud leukemia. We had been married for just over 20 years but had been together for almost 25 years. His death was a bit of a shock because his cancer was in remission and he had been doing good up until a couple months before he died.

Alexis I am so sorry for your loss, I thought I was a young widow until I read your profile. There seems to be quite a few passings related to unforeseen complications. It makes me very upset and scared for other people. My husbands infection would not respond to antibiotics, who even knew that this was a possibility in this day and age? And your husband being in remission and doing well prior must have left you speechless. I am having a hard time getting through a day, I decided to just strive for an hour at a time. Our daughter is 14 and she is just...angry, all the time. She thinks I should have stopped crying by now. I hope your daughter since she is a bit older is offering you the support you need. God bless and be well.

"Part 2Linda, yes and yes, I "laugh on the outside and cry on the inside". And the laugh (or just plain conversation) is just part of how I cope for when I have to be around others. But it means nothing. It’s like we…"

Keven's mom...I'm so sorry that phone came. There's nothing I can say or do to make this easier on you. Just know we know exactly how you feel. Your…"
As all of you have stated, I too fake my happiness. I laugh on the outside and am crying for him on the inside. I ache so bad that my Julian is not in my life. I just don't understand why God won't take me. Until he does, I…"
"Morgan. I wish I had answers but I am in the very same place. Lost, fake and hollow. I feel worse than I did a year ago I think because I thought I would feel better and don't. Empty and apathetic. I'm tired all the…"
I don't know why this has happened to us, our soulmates being torn from us, but it fucking sucks. Have you considered not acting happy and normal, since that isn't how you feel? Especially if acting that way isn't helping…"
"Please somebody, tell me how I can continue to do this. I am so depressed. I get up every day and pretend. It's what is making me so depressed. It looks like I am functioning so normally. Now that I have learned…"
"Hi Danny. Surviving is art which we all need to practice. Today I met a friend whose father is witnessing the similar illness as my mother i.e. late stage cancer. He is also going through the same emotional turmoil as I went in 2018. After this…"
