About Me:
I have been grieving quietly. As not to upset anyone around me.
About my Loss:
I lost my father in 2005 because he choose to smoke. I lost my husband two years later, for the same reason. My husband was diagnosed with stage four cancer in Feb. 2007 and he passed away June 24, 2007. I sometimes still find it hard to believe. It is like a bad dream. I spent 27 wonderful years with my husband. He was my soulmate. The Lord blessed me with one of the best. I just wish we could of had more time together. Losing my husband while he was 54 and I was 49 was one of the hardest things ever. I keep thinking it was all a bad dream. But in reality I know that the Lord was ready to have my husband back home. For some reason, this does not make it any easier for me.

SOMETIMES I THINK NO ONE KNOWS

Sometimes I think no one know the pain I feel. The tears are real, I feel so lost sometimes. Sometimes I feel like I can't rise above the pain. His photographs are placed in every room in the house. I know he is my angel, I would give anything for one more minute with him. I tell myself to be thankful he is out of the pain that the CANCER caused..... I thank God is was started in stage 4 and ended 4 months later. My pain is nothing compared to the pain he had to go through...

holidays and birthdays

Well as if making it past xmas, new years, my husbands birthday, valentines day, wasn't hard enough now my birthday is coming up. LONELY, LONELY, YUK....
OK LORD I KNOW I AM TO ACCEPT HIS DEATH BUT WHY DOES IT WEIGH SO HEAVY ON MY HEART.
HOLD ME UP LORD, HELP ME TO KEEP GOING ON WITHOUT HIM, ONE DAY AT A TIME.
Friends are great, but when couples are around it is a little hard. I guess this shall come to pass..
God bless everyone and hold your head up.

I lost my husband five years ago after a battle with cancer. He fought hard. I fought hard to keep him here. I've lost my mom, dad, grandmother, cousin, two uncles, father in law, mother in law and now my husband too all in 22 years. I thought I could get through this on my own, but I'm not moving forward very well. I am going to join a grief support group this month. I miss being a couple and I hate that he is gone.

Hi Gina,
Thanks for your support! My cousin has 3 tumors in his spine, prostate and bladder. Right at this very moment he is having his prostate removed. I'm just trying to keep myself busy.

Welcome to our community.
Lord, I hate cancer. My grandfather died of cancer and now I just found out 2 days ago my cousin has cancer, we are just waiting until noon today to find out what stage. I'm sick about it, I can't sleep and I cry all the time. I know it is just part of the process, but it doesn't make things easier.

Healing Repetition

An uncle in our family committed suicide.  For five years his wife, Aunt Alice, said the same things over and over again to anyone who would listen.  We are a loving family, so we listened and said the same hopefully comforting things back to her again and again.  And after five years she was done and could move on.  I hope it doesn't take five years, but I need to talk about my Uncle Jim and my cousin Paul and probably repeat myself a lot. It took a long time to develop my relationship with…See More

Hello, a little bit about me.

Two months ago, my mom committed suicide. As of now, this has to be one of the hardest things I have ever dealt with in my life. I hope that through this forum I may be able to just reach out to someone who can kind of understand what my situation is like.My friends try to talk to me (and I do reach out to them) but I feel that the situation I am in is a really heavy thing to talk about (basically I don't want to rope my friends into my troubles, nor do I want to be a burden to them). I talk to…See More

The Little Things

This morning there was a crescent moon.  I always called it a "fingernail moon," but my cousin Paul called it a "toenail moon."  I got all choked up seeing it.  Then the Valentine cards are out at Walmart.  He loved all the holidays, and I always sent him cards.  But no more.  More tears to fight back.  Sometimes his love for you would overflow, and he would just have to give you a big hug and tell you that he loved you right then and there.  I have never had anyone else do that for me.  I knew…See More
