Hello all, Just found this site today. Excited to have a place to share. My fiancee passed away tragically two months ago.
So sorry you had to join this world of ours but grateful you found this site!!! This site helped be beyond words during my darkest moments. I hope it can do the same for you!!!
PS- I'm glad you found us too. Ugh, that gives me the shivers, I ride myself. Love and hugs my friend.
Smith - that sounds really awesome!! Rafting in Ottawa? Who knew? ;)
psLove: So sorry for your loss. This site has been a 'god sent' to me. honestly.
I am 8 mos out, and joined this site at roughly 4 months. I hope it offers you some strength, and hope as you embark this widowhood journey!
I have come along by leaps and bounds in the last 4 months... the people on this site understand and it really is a beautiful community. So glad you found us!
BRENDA: mantracker: its a cdn reality tv series, but it airs on the science channel in the states. It takes place in the remote wilderness areas of canada/america. Basically there's a tracker... he's a cowboy on a horse that hunts for his prey-'tracks them down'. His prey (one day I hope to participate) is 2 contestants that think they can beat the mantracker. They are given a map, compass, and are allowed to use their own tactics against the tracker, but are only given 2 days to get to the finish line before he finds you. So you camp out over night... it's a pretty intense show. The prey is trekking through unthinkable terrain... I'd love to beat the man tracker!
I'd probably white water raft in Ottawa! But I've always thought about visiting Colorado!
I'm not that familiar with the states.
Hi all, I am new to WV. My Paul was 28 and died in a motorbike accident on new years day. I am 25...4 months out and struggling but am thankful to have found you all.
Smit- I have always wanted to try white water rafting, but I'm terrified of drowning. Where would you want to raft? The crazy Colorado?
Ang - GIST SUCKS. They first thought my husband has a GIST tumor, but it turned out to be Angiosarcoma. Both suck. Cancer sucks. Sorry sucky cancer brought you here. On the lighter note as well, TMNT ALL THE WAY!!
Smit & Nathan - 1 year anniversary I just went through the day and treated myself really really well. Lots of self care. The buildup was much worse than the actual day. I had intended to take off work and "do it up right" if that's possible, but getting swine flu the week before really messed up that plan. Whatever you do, it will be right for you.
Man tracker? Fill me in.
that sounds beautiful
still pondering what I will do for my year mark as well
and instead of white water rafting...I've changed the top of my bucket list...I'd really like to beat the man tracker!!! anyone seen that show? that's pretty intense.
-ps. thanks for joining us angpac. The support on this site is a wonderful thing.
peace and healing everyone
I did a butterfly release in my husband's favorite nature preserve. His brothers, sister-in-law, nephews, my sister and my son were in attendance. It was a beautiful thing. Surprisingly peaceful and not terribly sad - very healing experience. I plan to do it again in the future for important dates and such.
Hey angpac, It took me a while to get used to this site as well. (I still probably don't know all of the in's and out's) I don't think there is really an answer for the "what's worse" question. Sudden or drawn out. I think the question is galactically impossible to answer, I lost my wife suddenly, but I don't think I could choose a side.
Do you mind if I ask what you did on your 1 year angpac? It's just that I'm coming up on mine soon, and I'm trying to see what other people did, and weather it worked out well or not.
Glad you made it here!
Hi everyone. I just joined the site recently. Haven't had a ton of time to search the site in its entirety, but glad to have found a place to go when I feel like I'm all alone. The warm welcome by many is greatly appreciated. Very sad there are so many people here however. Sorry for everyone's loss. My husband Ben passed away a little over a year ago after a 16 month battle with GIST (gastrointestinal stromal tumor). I agree with tabbitha in that it's hard to say which is worse - not knowing someone you love and care for is going to die or having to watch them slowly deteriorate before your eyes knowing there's not a damn thing you can do to stop it from happening. Cancer is an evil beast. Wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy. My son just turned 7 a few days ago. Ben was his step-father, but had been in his life since he was 2. It's been really difficult for the both of us. On a lighter note I can't really comment much about Power Rangers (although pink anything gets my vote), but if you turn to the subject of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - now you're talking! lol And suddenly I have a pizza craving. Strange.
