At 56, my brain has enough mileage to wear off some of the tread, even before the loss of my husband this August. After his death, though, I find it so much harder to remember details, make decisions…Continue

Thanks Jill for the optimism.  I get through each day, believing tomorrow will be a better day...  It's another of those tough days, where all I want is Michael.  When I would cry watching a sad movie or such (which used to be rarely, however, is now a daily event), Michael would just queitly hand me a tissue...

I second the "it sucks!!" part.


I'm looking at 10 years this fall. I have no clue where those years went. I mean, I know, but I can't believe he's been gone THAT long. Life does go on. After he died a doctor friend of mine said that, "Suzanne, the irrefutable truth about life is that it goes on." It struck me as odd at the time. I guess then I had no freaking idea how life was going to go on. But it did. It does.

Welcome to the village Deb. I was widowed at 44, five years ago. IT DOES SUCK. I'm much better now. I am sorry you have to go through this but glad you are here.

My Michael died tragically 10 months ago today - a widow at 43. It sucks!
