These special days are so difficult to get thru. Have you planned anything for the day? Our 46th anniversary was the month after my husband passed away. I was really dreading it. My son took the day off work to…"
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…"
"As DIVA70 described, this is like having an out of body experience. Maybe that's a way of coping, I don't know. It's just going thru the motions of living for me most days. If I stop and really think about my life…"
I feel the same as you. We were married for 46 years, and he has been gone for 6 months. We went everywhere together. I can't even get used to going to the store. I have no interest in going to places we went…"
Sorry it didn't work out, but you can be proud of yourself for taking the step to look into it. Maybe the realtor will be able to find something else in that area. Or maybe they will decide to lower the price. Is…"
Two are English Setters, one is (I think) a Tibetian Spaniel mix, and the other a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. The setters like to be outside more, so are in and out all day. The other two are small and prefer to be inside…"
"I have 4 dogs. Some days, it's a lot of work and other days, things go smoothly.
My son helps a lot, too, but like you I hate to ask. It's hard to keep a house up by yourself if you aren't handy, which I'm not. …"
That's wonderful that you adopted a rescue dog. That is my passion. My husband and I adopted many rescues over the years. Right now, they are the main thing that keeps me going on a daily basis. What kind of…"
My husband and I were married 46 years before he passed away in March. I really don't think it has totally sunk in that he is gone. I think I'm just numb and going thru the days on autopilot.
When the weather is…"
Thanks for your kind words. It does help to come here and read what others have written. So many things really hit home. I think losing your spouse/partner is so much more difficult than you can ever imagine unless…"
"Melissa, one step at a time. If you send an email and get a reply and don't feel you're ready to proceed, well at least you have a contact for when you are ready. But who knows? Maybe it will all fall into place.
"Dee, I'm sure it must be scary to be going thru that alone. Do you have neighbors nearby? The weather people sometimes can drive us crazy with constantly changing things. It seems anymore they're more likely to be wrong…"
"Melissa, I have thought about moving also, but will definitely wait at least until next Spring. The main reason for me is just the upkeep of this house and property. My son helps now when he's home, but I think it's just too…"
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.
