I'm Hannah and I lost my husband on September 5th 2010, less than a year after being diagnosed with colon cancer. He was 36. I have a 2 year old daughter and a lunatic dog - plus I'm an expat Brit, grad student living in the States trying to finish my degree.

It was 6 months yesterday that he left and I'm doing OK - to be honest it has been such a frenetic time that I often feel like there hasn't been time to grieve. I'm too busy....

Hi I'm Nicole. I lost my best friend on 8/19/10. He died suddenly, in his sleep. No warning.

Hi, I'm Carol and I lost my husband on August 27, 2010 after a 3 year battle with cancer. I'm lost without him. I'm just going through the motions of living. I get up, go to work, come home, do some meaningless thing like crochet or watch tv, go to bed, cry, get up again and do it all over.  I have kids and grandkids that I love to death but they don't replace him.

My husband, my soulmate, died on January 22, 2010 after a 3 year battle with head/neck cancer.  We had been married for 28 years and I feel fortunate for every day of that time together.

The first year has been one of survival - one day at a time.   The second year...continues to be the discovery of the new normal and what to do with it.  I know I am a different person than I was a year ago...and one Jim would be proud of.  Doesn't make it any easier~ blessings to all.

Hi to everyone in this group.  My name is Susie and I lost my husband on November 23 2010 after a 4 year 6 month battle with the complex disease of Multiple Myeloma, a cancer of the palsma cells.  He was brave and couragous and fought hard to stay with me. Like all of you I am suffering badly but I am trying to continue with my life without him. Small steps everyday, a few forward and then a few back again. I wish more than anything to hear his voice which was beautiful and the way he said "Susie" it must be the same for all of you? A special thing you yearn for. Blessings and hugs.

I will get the hang of this supa. lots of different groups. I have a lot of homework this semester. Sometimes it hard to want to sit and type.

My husband died March 9 2010. It has be beyond hard. I have been trying many different things. I loved him with all my heart, I miss my life, but I know that one is over and it's time to find a new way to feel joy again.

I had a great breakfast with a friend and did my first canyon hike this weekend. It feels like a good start to living again ... but then today would have been my husband's 70th birthday and I'm immersed in memories and tears. Such a roller coaster ride of emotions.

I lost my husband January l, 2010, as many of you I imagine everything stop in my life as I knew.  I can only say things are difficult and I live life day by day.  After a year I accept what God has dealt me and hope everything gets better.

I lost my husband September 22, 2010. I've immersed myself in work and everyone there thinks I'm doing so well, but it's a sham. I'm a slug the whole weekend, staying in my PJs and rarely going outside. I've scheduled a breakfast and a hike with friends this coming weekend and hope I can force myself to actually do it.
