I lost the love of my life, Rich on January 10th ---I find it so comforting to spend time with others who share in this understanding of grief. Thanks Patter for helping me get here. I look forward to getting to know you better and I am grateful for how friendly many of you have already been. I really need your friendships.
Welcome Musiclady; you are among friends. We're all carrying a huge hole just like yours, a black hole, impossibly heavy. We don't know when it feel a little lighter, a little smaller, a little less raw, but we share and offer comfort, real understanding. We're all so sorry for the reasons that bring each of us here, but it's nice to find friends on this difficult road.
Dear pixidragon - I'm so glad you found Widowed Village at this terrible time in your life; you are very welcome here.
Hi, my husband died suddenly on Feb 12,2011 no known cause yet, not that it will change anything but perhaps it will help me when the final results come in. he was 42 I am 46 we had been together for 25 years married for 22 of them. I don't function very well right now, but I do what MUST be done and I am okay with that. I am not to sure what I am going to do yet, we rent an apartment I am hoping to move in June so I can be closer to family and support. Our son turned 21 the end of Feb lives with me he is disabled (Aspargers syndrome) very helpful young man and our granddaughter will be 7 next week, we were raising her together, now I will continue on alone. She can be a tough one to deal with we are more parents to her and she don't just cry she screams for him.. it's hard to witness her pain, I just give her more hugs and love.
Thanks for listening, I need somewhere to be to communicate with others who understand.
Hi patter - sucks is the word. I'm going back to work next week after being on leave since Sep 2010. I visited the office today to catch up with friends and meet my new supervisor. As it turns out, she has suffered family tragedy in her past, so understands all too well what it's like to come back to work. She has been wonderful, so I'm feeling less gloomy about next week.
Teensy, weensy baby steps.
You take care too.
Well Hello Ladies.. here we are the fresh widows of 2011.. it just totally sucks. My emotions go 360 and then back again.. I am finding the first challenge to survive, now to exist, and I guess the next challenge will to be fully functional.. Baby steps.. I am back to work, cause my looks wont pay the electric bill.. I am finding the nights to be rough..
I have started a blog to help me cope day by day.. here is the site address
Hope to be able to exchange more with you.... be well
