Six months ago I lost my husband to suicide. My heart still feels shattered in a million little pieces. I miss him desperately and don't know what my life is supposed to be when my purpose was so wrapped up in being his wife.I still love him. With all of my heart. I wish I could turn back the clock and get him not to leave me. I need him.See More
