August 2 will be my 60th birthday. I anticipate spending it alone. I probably won't answer the phone either, don't want to hear Happy Birthday when I am not happy.
Im sorry for you, barb. My husband’s bday is also in August. First one without him. I have no idea how to handle it. There will be calls - and likely I will meltdown in a different way with each one.
Have you tried any MeetUp groups in your area? Pick a topic that interests you - hiking, book club, whatever - and you could end up meeting people that way.
August 31st would have been our 14th anniversary...Don't know what I'm going to do. Probably go to work so my mind is occupied. Then maybe go to see her at the cemetery...
August 31 would be husbands 61st birthday. **tears**
Thinking of you as your husband's birthday is coming up. I just had my birthday and it was my first one without my husband.
Hope the day goes OK for you and that you're able to celebrate his life and all of your wonderful years together.
I understand and i think that you describe it exactly as madness. Amy's and my 35th anniversary would have been last Monday..
So much hurt going through our lives.......I tried to remember the wonderful things that went on in our life over those years (and there were many of those)
Blessing, Peace and Hope today and this week....
August 31st will be a difficult day...my husband’s birthday. I have no idea how to survive this madness.
My wife's birthday the 15th and our anniversary is the 22nd. Both will be happening less than a month from losing her.
I am so sorry, Earl. Just survive...it’s all anyone can expect.
