How is everyone today? Yesterday was pretty good for not so much. I i hadn't had an appointment I probably wouldnt have bothered with anything.

No matter how it happens its horrible.  One moment at a time i guess.   Life goes and so will we.. slowly but surely maybe, but we will.

My husband passed away on January 10th. He committed suicide. It’s been hard getting use to being a single parent, but I just fake it I make it. Anyways nice to meet all of you

My husband died on the 5th Feb so just over 2 weeks ago. It was not sudden but still doesn't make it any easier. We have 4 children 22, 18, 16 and 7. We are all heartbroken but trying to get on with life as thats what he wanted us to do.

Hello. I am so sorry for your loss. My husband died unexpectedly January 30. 3 weeks ago exactly actually.  It is awful. I won't ask you how you are . This is my first post so hopefully I did it correctly- I just wanted to say hello and let you know you aren't alone.

Is anyone else out there?  My husband died on Feb1 of this year.  Hello?
