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…"

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.

"You are right. I became conditioned with my mom. Every health crisis that my mom would have was traumatic for me. And then there would be that ray of light. I would have mom safe at home once again. I developed some false hope. But as time passed…"
"Baby steps is such a good metaphor — I think when we’ve been traumatized by terrible loss, many of us lose our resilience, and basically have to baby ourselves, setting very tiny goals and challenges, slowly working our way forward.…"
"Theresa, it's hard for me to be positive about anything. I always feel like something bad is right around the corner. That's because every time I thought mom was safe and had cleared another hurdle, something else would go wrong. It's…"

That is so great about the phone call from the directors at the center, that must have made you feel like a million bucks.
