I lost my husband on May 3rd. It has been so hard. I still do not like to go out and stay at home a lot more than I used too. I am always tired and I guess that is the depression. I got some extra medication for the first couple of weeks but then my Dr. stopped it. I felt like I really need some valium or something. I felt like I was coming apart at the seams and couldnt eat or sleep. It is better than that now, but I still cry almost every day. This is so awful.
I don’t know how to post on this, so I’m doing as a comment. My husband died August 30th. We have a 2 year old and a 4 year old. Each day is worse than the next.
I am so sorry for your loss. My children are grown, they are hurting but at least they had time.
Hi Tekwriter, I am so sorry for your loss. My husband passed away July 17th after a brief (3 week) illness so I, too, am new to this "club". Our worlds have been turned upside down. I am "only" 57...although I feel like I am 100 now. I have no words of wisdom for you except to say you are not alone in this new world we find ourselves in.
