Rose, I lost my husband suddenly to a cardiac event on Easter Sunday. It has been 2 months and I have a very difficult time holding it together all the time. I can not imagine having to deal with a wedding so soon. I cannot give you any advice all I can say is welcome to this site where no one wants to be. I have found people support you through things even your closest family and friend can't.
I lost my husband on Friday the 27 of April. He was killed by a driver who was distracted on his way home from work. I am retiring in June from 37 years of teaching. My son is getting married next week and I'm having a difficult time holding it together.
I know Bonnie. It's heartbreaking, exhausting, maddening. I feel very lost and angry these days. x
Hi Deb,I'm grateful for your kind message.My heart is breaking and numb at the same time.Glad to find a group of others who understand.
Lynne and sparkles, thank you both so much for the warm welcome. I really appreciate it xxx
Hi Bonnie and Deb. Haven't checked in on this group in a bit but saw your names pop up today and wanted to say how very, very sorry I am for your losses. I think that you can find a lot of care and support on here and, certainly, people to chat with and share your thoughts and feelings with. We are all going through much the same thing so the understanding part comes all too easy. I lost my husband of almost 41 years on March 27th - a sudden and unexpected heart attack (no prior diagnosis or treatment) and I'm still struggling with all the feelings that come along with such a thing. We're always sorry for the reason that someone else has to join our group but please know that we're all here for each other. Wishing you all the best. Lynne
I can't believe I need a group like this.Thank you for all the kind welcomes. I am still in denial I think.My kids have returned to their lives.I feel so alone.I'm sorry that anyone would need a group like this.I just hope I can make it through this part of my life journey on my own.
Thank you for the warm welcome Ccdague. I am so sorry for your loss. I hate cancer so much.
Hi Bonnie. Looks like we joined this group at the same time. Your grief is so fresh right now. Those early weeks are a blur to me now. I'm very sorry for your loss Bonnie. xxx
