Latest Activity: yesterday
Yesterday I remembered my husband into an event that he was no longer here for. I have so many memories, and we had done so many similar things that my mind just put him there. I had to pause for a moment to realize he couldn't have been.
I so understand Hope - figuring out who you are now is really a challenge. Half of you is gone - and after 30 years of being together - it is a daunting task!
Dear deaf widow,
I am truly sorry for your loss. I unexpectedly lost my husband to a heart attack a little over two years ago and I miss him all the time. We were each others sanctuary/world and, while I am fortunate to have some friends that care, they have their own lives and I am often alone.
It's funny - the things you miss sometimes, as it would drive me crazy when he constantly called out my name for something or other in our apartment and yet I'd give anything now to hear him bellow out my name. I don't like to travel my journey/life without him either and it is my prayer that each step of my journey brings me a little closer to the day when I hope to join him again on my final day whenever that may be.
In the meantime, I strive to fill my days with new experiences, try to comfort to others and learn as much as I can while I still can. I would be less than honest if I claimed to no longer cry over losing him anymore. As time passes, I simply cope a little better, but I still experience moments and periods of time when I regress and cry as if I just lost him all over again.
This "journey" is filled with lots of bumps, twists and turns and like so many wonderful widows and widowers, who continue to love but have lost their loved ones, I am simply trying to fight and find my way through as best I can. There is no manual to follow as, despite certain similarities, each experience is unique.
Wishing you courage, strength and a beautiful day.
Nice reminder, Nieta, when we are feeling so sad. Thank you. Hugs to you (and Winnie the Pooh).
Thank you, KayeL. No matter what age you are, being without our loved is VERY hard. I really understand what you are going through! (Glad you don't smoke)! Am sending you lots and lots of hugs!!!!!
I'm at 4 months now since my PJ died from cancer. All I want to do is go back to live in the past when he was healthy. I don't want to live alone without him, but what choice do I have? I don't look forward to tomorrow. There is no one to share with. Our friends have disappeared, too. I sit outside (smoking) and stare at the world going by. All I can think is "I wish you were here, PJ"! I sooooooo....miss you!
