My husband, Steve died on Feb 2, 2011.  I can't believe I am having to write that, say that and feel it!  Steve had heart disease and had a bypass 7 years ago, he died at 53 years old.  He loved his family, home, friends, ME and our daughter, Madilyn who is 7.  I have found great comfort, support and made some new friends in these web pages.  Thanks for having the courage to "throw" it all out for everyone to see, share and to find validation and understanding.  I know I'm grateful to be able to do the same.

My wife also died in January unexpectedly. In addition, my wife, my wife also was in good health and we went hiking almost very weekend. At times her death seems in-comprehensible. But your not crazy, or alone. We need you, like you need us.

I too am new to this group. I lost my husband on January 20th, 2011 quite unexpectedly. He was the picture of health and an excellent athlete. I feel your pain and I think all of us are feeling the deep grief that goes with losing someone we loved so much.  It is difficult that no one truly understands what you are feeling as this kind of tragic loss is difficult for outsiders to comprehend. I, like you, am looking for some kind of validation that I am not alone or crazy. Others feel very much like us. I hope you find comfort in sadly knowing that there are others who are hurting like you are.

Be well and enjoy your baby.

Hi momalone 29,

I clench whenever I come here and see our group number rise, it tells me another is hurting. I am sorry you have had to join us, I am 9 weeks into this mess myself. I have found understanding,acceptance and love here, I am sure you will as well. The "outsiders" just don't get it sometimes they really tick me off with their ignorance, that won't happen here, and I am thankful for the support I find here. <3 to us all

Hi everyone, I'm new here and I'm not sure if I'm commenting in the right spot.  My husband passed two months ago (today).  I dont feel like it is getting any better and it feels worse.  Im really trying to socialize with others that understand.  I just get so lonely.  We were together 24/7.  And I have our 3 month old breast feeding which is really hard but I love our little man.

Hi SallyStarre.  I won't say welcome because if you are like me you don't want to be here either.  I will say you will find some measure of understanding here because we are all dealing with losing the one we loved. And always feel free to express how you feel here.  We care!

 I lost my best friend and husband on March 12th at 5:05 AM.   He had a heart transplant on January 27th 1996.  We were blessed to have 15 more years together thanks to the generosity of his organ donor.  Although I am so grateful for the time we had I so miss him.  It seems to get worse instead of better.

I do get so tired of hearing those words "I can only imagine".  I often want to scream "Why would even want to imagine? Just tell me you're sorry, you're thinking of me, whatever." It just points out the already glaring difference between our lives.  I know they care, but I ask myself every day when the pain isn't going to be so fresh. 

I totally hate the word "I" too.  It's almost like a punch in the stomach to have to use it. But then you forget and use "we" and that doesn't feel any better.    I had to fill out a form at the doctor's and checked all 3 boxes- married, widowed, and single.  The doctor didn't say a word.
