Brain fog?

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

My husband passed in October last year and it seams unreal.We where married for 22 years and this was suspose to be forever.Now I found out there is not such thing.I have grown a lot true all this and it has chainged my life for ever.

Once I was a nurse loving my Job more then you can imagine and after seeing what he went true and all the mistakes that was done ,I could not return to that at all.I don not even know if I ever will.My Girlffriend lost her husband 2 years ago and is not yet ready to get into a relationship .She was married for 18 years.I think it depends on you and the relationship you had with you husband.I do not think there is a timeframe on when to go back to life everyone is diffrent and deals with this diffrent.You are not wrong because you do what you feel is right.For me it will take a long time because when you had the greates you can never go back to soso.I may never be ready but I trust what ever it is God will lead me there.

Yep I'm 42 and a widow, also. It will be a year on July 31 and I am dreading the day. Tired of ppl telling me I'm so young and pretty, I can find someone else. I don't WANT to find anyone else! Is anyone else here dealing with this? I mean, it hasn't even been a year yet!

Had lunch with another widow today.  She is 5 years out.  I am 3 mos out and between the tears, the only feeling I could convey is this just sucks.  No other word for it.  Seems to be the general feeling here to.  Yep, sucks to be 42 and a widow.

I became a widow Aug 2010, at the age of 42. It sucks out loud. I feel like a foreigner everywhere I go.

There is nothing groovy or cool about being born in the 60s and widowed already. It does not rock.
Comment by mrossman on April 3, 2011 at 6:39pm
It really does suck.  We are all too young for all this(not sure when would be old enough)  I agree with the feeling of being alone.  There's not too many places to fit in.

I was born in 1961 and widowed in 2010 at the age of 48.  Who would ever expect that?  We lived each day to its day at a time...after his diagnosis.  THat is what I have tried to do ever since.  Quite a journey we are all on~
