"Ultra, 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."

"Ultra2015, 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…"

"Lovestory13, I'm so sorry for your loss. As if we didn't have enough to deal with before all of this, it's so hard to go these difficult days now. So much harder alone. Glad that you found us here."

"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. I'm…"

"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…"

"Thanks, Shelley.  I am just having such a tough time with this.   She was just too young to die.  I miss her terribly.  I really can't believe she's gone."

"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…"

"Shelley, I feel the same - no joy here.  I'm sure it must be very difficult to deal with an illness without your husband by your side.  Everything is more difficult alone, but I would think an illness especially so.  I hope that…"

"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…"

Mary,

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. 

  It was so nice to read your comments and your comforting words. It is so nice to be on here and have people tell you their experiences and how they handle it it makes you feel like you’re not alone. 

DIVA70 Right about so many things it was nice to read her comments. I just hate that we have to be on here but this isWhere our lives lives took us. 

Hugs Judyrose
