Welcome Aeleice! I am so sorry for your loss but glad you found this site. You will find a lot of support here. We all get it! Thank you for your service to our country. I hope you will also check out the military families group. Glad you are doing better.
I am still learning my way around the site how would I find the group. I am a disabled vet so I am not sure if I fit that category but willing to look
Here's a link to the military family group, Aeleice.
Hi I'm Judy a mom of 4 and recent widow. Dave died 3/21/13 at the age of 54. He was healthy and active until May of 2011 when he was diagnosed with a giant aneurism. They didn't expect he would survive but he did and after two days home had stroke symptoms and the result was another aneurism which caused a massive brain bleed and brain damage, many weeks in a coma and many more in rehabs. Came home 10/2011 and had his first of many seizures the following month. I was his caregiver. He passed away from Status Epilepticus. I feel I'm moving forward only to be shocked weekly with the reality that he will never come home again. I am sorry to meet all of you over the loss of our loved ones but look forward to gaining insight and help in moving forward with our lives. <3
I am so sorry for your loss Judy.Cary B.
Judy, I'm sorry for your loss. Don also recently passed away March 9th at the age of 59. 2012 he went through a colostomy, gall bladder surgery, nueropathy, duodenal ulcer, urinary tract infections, mercer, and c-diff. February he came home from the nursing home, and then the dr. called him back, claiming his "numbers were no good." This time when he went back, he just became so depressed, and when he developed pnumonia, he just let himself go.
Some days I think I'm all right, then I have to remember he's not coming home. It's so lonely without him, he was such a big part of my life. I don't want to but I have to force myself to live without him.
CaryB and lillymarlene, Thank you and I am sorry for your loss too. It is so reassuring to feel everyone supporting each other. I walked the dog just now and saw an older couple grilling together and thought that should have been us. I feel so alone. Thank you for your encouraging support. I hope to be there for you and others too. It actually makes it seem as if I have a purpose after all in encouraging and supporting others like us. Praying you have a wonderful and encouraging week ahead. Bless you, Judy
Judy I am sending you positive thoughts.Cary B.
