Lisa glad you found us just sorry for the reason you are here. A club none of us wanted to join. Take it a day at a time. No need to think of the future at this point in time. Too over whelming. We've all learnt to take baby steps. Do things when you are ready and not a moment before. You'll find a lot of support here and everyone understands. (((((Hugs)))))
Welcome Lisa, I'm so sorry for your loss. What you are going through is quite normal. Go easy on yourself and just take baby steps. You will be very glad you found this site, everyone is very supportive and we all understand.
Hello, I am new here and just learned about this site. I lost my husband, and best friend suddenly back in August. He passed suddenly caused by a heart attack. No one was with him when it happened. He was found by the hotel staff when he hadnt checked out of his room by late afternoon. I had just talked to him that morning, and he had planned to call me once he was at the airport. When I hadnt heard from him by 4pm I was getting worried. At 5pm I was getting mad and by 6pm, I was scared and I knew there was something very wrong. I didnt hear from anyone until 10pm that evening that he had passed ( they found him at 2pm).
We were married for 26 years. I have two adult children (22 & 25). I seem to be doing okay most of the time. I just find I can't think about my future farther than about a month at a time. It just is too sad to think about.
Hope this brightens your day... http://www.marcandangel.com/2011/12/11/30-things-to-stop-doing-to-y...
Thank you TerryLovesJim. I lost my Jim on March 8th, 2011. I promised that I would also be a testimony of our love and with that and God's loving grace, I am getting through each day. Some are harder than others, but Jim's memory is living bright in my heart.
May you have a Blessed day and thank you for sharing.

Hi Terry. I am glad you found this site. It really does hep, but it stinks being here if you get my meaning. The good new is you will make great friends, and the chat is wonderful. Please join in. You can just peek, and then jump in when you are ready. I lost my husband to Cancer last April. It is rough, but I found this place really helps. I am sorry for your loss. Hugs to you and your family, and I hope to see you on chat soon.
I lost my husband 12/10/11 @ 7:15 am. He passed away in our living room, in our daughters arms. Jim battled cancer (non- hodgkin’s ) for 22 months. He always believed God would heal him, we did too. Jim and I were married for 36 years and he was my first and only boyfriend. We met when I was 11 and he was 13. My heart is broken, I don't want to go back to work, I can't sleep and all of the other things that have been mentioned here. But, we have 3 grown children and 5 grandchildren. I must set an example for them so- if ever- in their lives they face a heart wrenching event they will not give up. I must be a testimony of Jims love, of Gods grace and his all forgiving mercy. Our husbands are not a part of our past, but rather a part of our future. When our time comes to leave this earth we will reunited with them for eternity.....then and only then will we understand. Lets pray for one another and take comfort in knowing we will see them again, in a place where there is no sorrow and death reigns no more.
Thank you Sheryl!
