This is for anyone who has lost their lover to death and you were the other woman/other man in their life. We have to grieve in silence. I can't find any support groups and feel like I'm the only one going through this situation

I'd like to start by saying that I can't believe I found an outlet with people who've suffered similar experiences. It's comforting to know that while I may be an exception to the rule of…Continue

Thank you! I need support right about now!
I am so sorry for your loss. It is never easy to lose someone but to lost a love that was a secret feels so much worse. However, through this group I am found great support and having the chance to talk to them has really helped. I hope that I can be part of the support for you as these women have been for me.
Thank you. but I haven’t cried yet and I don’t know why. I’m just tearing up inside while putting a smile on my face.
I’m new here to this group in search of help, advise, and to express my feelings to those who can relate to my feelings of losing a lover of 10years.
I am a newlywed and married my husband whom I’ve been with for 18 years. And two days after wedding my best friend and lover died and 3 days after my birthday he was laid to rest.
I am so hurt but I can’t express it, I can’t cry out or grieve because only a few people know. In addition we have a child together, which my child only knows my husband as her dad. My lover knew he that he was her biological child but he never pressured me to tell the truth and I never planned too.
I went to the wake but I did not go to the funeral or burial. His last message to me was “ am I ever going to see you again” I miss him so much and no one knows how much pain I am in.
I really want to reach out to his family but I do not want to open a can worms that can jeopardize my household.
What can I do to be a peace with not having my love not in my life anymore?
