And I will add that even though I am nearly eight years out, and my daughter just turned 7 (I was two months pregnant when I lost my husband)not a day goes by that I don't think about nor celebrate my husband. Just today on the subway platform, taking my daughter to school, we heard a song he played for me at our wedding and I held my girl and we danced right there. Was a bittersweet way to begin the day. But I share with her freely (as appropriate) and I constantly share with her things about her dad. So they remain with us, always.
Hi AchiPong and all - I check in now and then and and am again so saddened to see more in similar situations. For those of you "hanging on" and wanting to die, I get it, it is a dark place to be. But I will suggest that you focus on your pregnancies and let that be a beautiful excuse for moving forward through your days. Take small, very small steps - just get yourselves through each day. Therapy is extremely helpful and you should lean on those on this site who are living proof that your days will be brighter and your children will be wonderful joys when they arrive. They are well worth living for. Please feel free to reach out to me directly as I am not on this site often... Just keep going!!!

Hello Everyone, I am new here and no one to talked, I just felt so alone everyday, though I have very supportive family but no one can exactly understand what I am going through. I lost my husband from a vehicular accident last January 26, it was so sudden that until now I feel that it is just a dream. We were a couple for almost 6 years and just got married this last December. We were both 26 of age. I am 6 months pregnant now with our first baby.
I just feel so helpless and just wanna die as well, but I know I can't for the fact that I am pregnant. Everyday is a battle and torture of negative emotions. I hope I could find comfort here.
I'm so glad you have support. When my husband died, my family and my church small group got me through. Their support didn't make up for anything or change anything, but they helped keep me going and taking care of myself while this storm was raging in my head. I can't fully understand your grief or the trauma you've been through, but I know it must be hard to bear. I'm so sorry.
