Truly a Widow, I felt the same way. I thought I should have been further along but finding this group and realizing that others felt the same as me helped me more than anything else. I will never forget reading posts from other widows who were still consumed with grief as I was. Everyone thought I should be so much better except for other widows who had actually gone through it. It was nice to be able to tell people that my feelings were normal and there wasn't a freaking ONE OR TWO YEAR MARK when we miraculously wake up healed. I really hope that you take the pressure off yourself as I did.
My husband's 4th year deathaversary will be on May 27th. I can feel the crescendo of gut wrenching pain and loneliness building. I feel hypersensitive. On of my girlfriends was talking about how her husband was going to pick up some strawberries for her. It hit me like a ton of bricks. I want my Steve back to bring me strawberries. Funny, how something like some stupid strawberries can just push an emotional button. Another friend is planning her first wedding. Every day when I see her at work I have to hear the report. I truly am happy for her, but can't help how it makes me sad that I don't have a special someone to love and to love me back. I'll be glad when the month of May is over. Thanks for listening.......
Hi all, my name is Jess. My husband died April 6th, he was 38. He was driving to a job for work and a man with a known heart condition had an episode at the wheel and drove his VA Medibus through 4 lanes of traffic, hitting Bob head on. We have 4 children and at the time they were 12, 10, 3 1/2, and 11 months. It is hard to believe that it has been four years and the kids are so big. He's missed so much. He was an amazing man. The world is a much sadder place without his humour. I think the kids and I have done alright. My family is very close. He would be so proud.
We were married when I was only 19 (he was 5 years older). It has been weird to have to learn to do things on my own. I have found an inner strength that I never knew I had.
I'm so thankful for the internet and groups like this one... It's so nice to know I'm not alone....
I am approaching the 4 year mark of widowhood. On May 27, 2007, my husband died from brain annoxia 8 days after a heart attack that he had while training for a triathlon. He was a "young" and fit man of 55 years. We were happily married for over 26 years. He was my best friend, lover, and soulmate. By choice, we did not have children. Thank you for this group.
