So sorry for your loss but you will find a lot of love and support here. Everyone cares and "gets it." Regarding young widow groups, you might want to try MeetUp groups. Others here have suggested and I am finding it to be helpful as well. Kind of an extension of this site. A lot of support and understanding to say this least. You can just do a search.
Welcome to our group. I am so very sorry to hear of the loss of your wife. Birthdays are particularly difficult. I lost my husband David in March 2 weeks before his 45 birthday. Hope you are able to find some comfort in this group, take care.
Hello everyone, I guess I just made it into this club being born on the 97th day of 1970. I lost my wife, Karyn just over 6 months ago. This past may 16th would have been her 40th birthday. Anyway, I just wanted to introduce myself and say hello to everyone
I know it's not exactly rational, but does anyone else get almost jealous when you hear/read about people who got to spend many years with their spouse/partner before they were widowed? I hear people talk about their grandkids and retirement, and although I know it's still awful to lose your partner at any age, I feel sort of extra cheated that my husband was only 37, and (most of all) that my son only got to spend 3 years with him before he went into the hospital and never really left.
Thank you all. I'm very sorry that everyone here is dealing with such horrible tragedy. Losing your spouse/partner so young seems like a hard thing for most people to truly understand--it's nice to have a place where people really do get what you're going through. I am looking into some widow/widower groups locally, but they all are geared toward older people--has anyone else had a hard time finding a good fit in that way?
I love the breath saying. I lost John on Feb. 13. I'm so lost. I don't know how to do anything anymore, but I keep chugging through the days, trying to be the best mom I can be alone. He took his own life, its like living in a nightmare and I will wake up one day.
There's really no right or wrong way to get through this. Just know that you are not alone. Pour it out here if you have to. My husband passed 6 months ago and it still feels strange to not have him around. Many days I was wishing so hard that this is all just a nightmare. All the love to you!
You are welcome here. One day at a time is very good. Sometimes it's one hour - sometimes one minute. It's whatever you need.
