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
I could have written your post about not fitting in to any group. I'm 67 now and still looking where I fit in. I'm too old to be a young widow and too young to be an old widow.
I have tried several online dating services but didn't have any luck at all. I'm thinking of trying again.
I'd love to know what other widows/ers are doing to make a life for themselves.
I teach and I take classes but it's just not enough.
My husband turned 63 in May 2010, the same month we would find out he had 3-6 months to live. This is certainly how we didn't see our life together playing out, at least not at this age. In some ways I am glad I don't have young children any more, but yet can see how they would give me more of a reason to be engaged in day to day living. We were just starting to talk/plan for retirement. Now I'm here alone. I don't know who I will be as this journey plays out, but for now I sure don't know who I currently am. I look in the mirror and don't even recognize my former self:( Ugh.
