My husband died on Aug 28, unexpectedly..I have a grief counselor- her husband passed away at 47 years of marriage too and so, she traveled this path. I do have a grief group, 4 widows 1 widower.…Continue
Don I know less than most people about the internet but I do know if anyone asks for you to change anything STAY AWAY. Hope the rest of your evening goes well. Ceilya
My computer is really screwed up by some outfit claiming to be google. Today They are trying to jam their own email system down my computer throat. and force me to use a new email address. I don't want to change my email address which is [email protected]
Sometimes I have an awful time just sending an email. It is a "pain" in the goozeetska.
Don you are right you can't beat it. Someone told me awhile ago that it doesn't get better it just gets more tolerable. Some days I find that to be true and others it is like yesterday. Most of the time when my life is full of drama or seems like the walls are caving in it hurts the most to not have that person who would say just the right thing or be there to take half or more than half of the load off your shoulders. That person is gone so in those times the pain is much deeper and real and seems so raw. But days when things are a bit smoother or you sit at a grandsons baseball game and the world just seems to pass your by that is one of the few days I get to smile. I hope to have more of those days as I go forward in my grief process. A friend gave me a book which I really like. It isn't one you read cover to cover just areas that will help. The title is "I WASN'T READY TO SAY GOOD BYE" BY PAMELA D. BLAIR AND BROOK NOEL.
only1sue33....I too have been fortunate enough to have found people who inspire me. I find many on these sites and groups.
Thank you all for being here for me when I truly need someone to hear me. Ceilya
I guess we all find inspiration in books that fit our own situation. I haven't read a book I would hand out as a cure-all but have found people who inspire me instead. There are many on this site who do that and among my widowed friends. Let's stay away from controversy for a while eh?
I am reading a book titled "THE SECRET" by Rhonda Byrne. So far, I believe it is a book all widows and widowers would benefit from reading.
"And that is why we who experience grief need to band together so grief doesn't get the best of us and one day we can beat it."
Ceilya: I have found that you can't beat it, but you can learn to live with it .
I went to a lunch today to celebrate a friend's 65th birthday and there were many old friends there from the car club we belonged to - it was bittersweet, so many memories came back and to see many of them still "couples" made me feel even more alone. It is really hard trying to adjust to this new life without "my guy".
