April 28th is "one of those days" for me also. It would have been our 47th anniversary and is my 2nd one alone after my husband passed away in March of last year.
I hope that however you spend the day, you are able to find peace."
We can only hope and pray that things will be back to "normal" soon. I'm sure not being able to do your volunteer work has been difficult.
Glad that your daughter is there with you. I'm grateful to have my son coming…"
"I'm so very sorry, Riet. I think most of us have been exactly where you are now. It's hard not to think of "what should have been" or "what should be". I find that I'm constantly fighting bitterness.
"Sander, I'm so sorry for the loss of your husband, Dennis and the loss of your child. It sounds like you have been thru a lot in the last few years.
I'm glad you found us here and hope that you will post when you feel the need. You might…"
"It's really hard in so many ways to lose these pets. First, going thru it all alone and also just because it feels like something else taken away. I have other dogs, but Katie was my favorite. The others are more to themselves. The house just…"
"Thank you both. It's so amazing to me how I can come here and read others posts or post something myself and feel so understood. I know that others in my life mean well, but most of what they say doesn't help. In some cases, it makes me…"
"First - Shelley, I'm glad you're doing as well as can be. I think you mentioned before that you do have support available, but it's not the same as having our husbands here. Please keep us posted.
To all - things here haven't…"

"A year ago today, my husband had his first chemo treatment. He woke up that morning with pain in the calf of his one leg. He was in terrible pain and told the oncologist about it right before his treatment. I was afraid that the…"
"As if this time of year isn't bad enough with all of the memories, I keep thinking back to last year at this time. A year ago yesterday, my husband had an appt with the orthopedic surgeon for what was supposedly a rotator cuff…"
I hope you are able to come to peace with all of this thru counseling. I can't even imagine what you're going thru. I know there isn't much we can say to make you feel better, but I do hope you'll keep…"
You are so right it is like an out of body experience. I just go through the day numb that wayI don’t have to think about him or alives before. Maybe that’s not the right way to go through it but I don’t know how else to handle it right now.
