I just joined the site, lost my husband on March 3, 2018. He was diagnosed with end-stage liver disease on August 7, 2018, though in retrospect we think he had been sick for much longer, perhaps a few years. My husband was in and out of the hospital for the months following his diagnosis. The final stay was in the ICU for 6 weeks. He fought valiantly to get stronger, I fought hard to get him the transplant he needed to survive. When the doctors finally finally agreed to give him a liver transplant, it was too late. They opened him up to do the transplant the doctors found his small intestine had died. There was nothing more they could do for him.

I'm so hurt and angry and confused. Like all of you, my whole world has been shattered. I am 39, he was just 41. Our children are 10 and 14. I don't know what the future can even hold for me anymore.

Hi Nayajivan, 

My sincerest condolences on the recent loss of your wife Archana ...

Just to let you know, I read there are Meet ups in Mumbai for the widowed when you are feeling up to it which could be weeks, months, etc ...

In the meantime, do come back ...

Blessings ...

hi all,

I am Namitabh Kothari from Mumbai - India.

I have lost my wife Archana on 12th March 2018.

I would appreciate if we all can talk and support each other in coping with the loss.

Oh my, I am so sorry. Yes that state of shock is like a cloud that surrounds you for awhile. I am at 3 months and I am still feeling some of that, although it is lifting bit by bit.

We lost him a little over 2 weeks ago and I don't have any answers why yet....I feel like I'm in shock

Familia1 how and when did you lose your husband

Comment by familia1 on March 28, 2018 at 12:32pm

Weemunk, I feel the same way,  I'm trying to process the reality of it all.  I feel like I don't want to tire those close to me with listening to me but all I want to do right now is talk about it...

Comment by Weemunk on March 28, 2018 at 4:54am

Hi Everyone, My husband passed away December 19th. A non-smoker, healthy 49 year old man who got lung cancer. It will never make sense to me. We have a 14 year old daughter. I feel miserable, alone, angry, cheated, victimized and it feels like my life is over. No one truly understands what I am going through or perhaps they don't want to be bothered with my grief, so I came here hoping to connect with others who understand.

There are no words for the pain.  It comes in waves. Im sorry for your loss
