I am just joining and honestly feel like I want to throw up.  I lost my husband April1 and can't believe I am in this position.  It seems so unreal and I seem so lost.  Just can't believe he is gone.

Hello Everyone-

I thought I was posting a comment, but I guess I sent an email to everyone instead. Anyway it is going to take me time with getting use to using this site, as I have no experience using social media.

I recently lost my husband March 28th and I am hoping to connect with people that can relate to what I am going through. I was with my husband for almost 29 years and he was the love of my life. I miss him so much and right now I don't know how to continue life without him. Like everyone else I guess I will take one day at a time.

Hi, I’m new to this site. I lost my husband, my love on Feb.21, 2019 to suicide. It’s still so surreal. I wake up go to work because I have to, I am doing the motions but feel numb and lost. I have so many emotions and questions but no answers. I miss him and my heart aches. I just try and get through each day the best I can.

I lost my husband on Nov , it was unexpectedly and is devastating. Don't know how to live anymore

Oh Hilda, I am so sorry for your loss.  I also lost my husband on February 22nd unexpectedly.  I don't really know how to go on either, but having people here to listen and reply has helped tremendously.  I am hoping they are all correct in that you get used to living with the loss.  Right now it is still a struggle for me to breathe most of the time.

My husband of 21 years died on February 22, two days

after his 50th birthday. I don’t know how I’m going to go on.

My husband passed recently and it was unexpected he didn’t tell me he was sick. He was my whole world and I really don’t know how I’m going to move forward without him. I miss him so much I go to the cemetery and just lay there with him for at least an hour anyday it isn’t raining. I watch his shows that he has recorded on the DVR and just talk about everything I’m feeling and what’s going on. He was stubborn yet kind and made anyone that met him feel like they were his best friend. I’m still waiting for him to come home.

My husband passed away on January 2 2019. He had a 10 year battle with COPD and five years with CHF. In October 2018 they said within 6 months, I guess it didn't register in my mind or heart. In December he went on Hospice so he could have the medication he needed to help control his breathing. I feel numb still, like its not real, he's on a vacation. Some days I feel blank all day and other days my thoughts won't stop. The pain of it all is always there somewhere. No one truly understands unless they have been there. My husband was a 13 year Army Veteran a very strong sometimes stubborn, very proud man. I love him so very much and miss him every second of every day and have absolutely no idea how to do this without him. Jim was 61 and I'm 45.
