"Monsters kitten - I am very young too. And maybe there is a reason we may be a little different. I've been seeking younger people to relate to. My emotions do come and go but I'll go 5 days or so without crying. My husband to was amazing.…"
"Ihardlyever- I sort of relate. I miss him more than words and want him here so badly. But he was so so sick he didn't deserve to suffer another day. If you feel you've cried enough and you don't hold it in then it's not bad. I…"
"Ice creAm! Yes!!! I forgot to mention always having to tell your child "no" when they would ask to have their friends over. It was so painful and unfair. Not to mention, at least for me, lack of intimacy for five years. Actually 5 1/2."
"One thing that's happen is a friend a true friend thTs a guy who is 26 and I JUST turned 40. He's super short and small and just teeny. Smaller than any woman I know not to mention has a couple girlfriends point is there is literally…"
"Thanks, it ALL makes perfect sense even tho u all have a different angle. My mom and dad were married 48 years. She was 67 when he passed 5 years ago. She too prolly wouldn't mind a companion but the thought of another man in any fashion she…"
"Ok. Slick and Cynthia, if you don't mind my asking, 5 1/2 years.. I know me and I know I can't do that. I'll never make it that long. I guess I'm co dependent.. Have you guys dated? Do you just not want to? Cuz I know you have to…"
"Is it just me or.. For me it is sort of hard to explain but the lonliness is brutal. Yet I find it so difficult to be around people. I think I feel like everyone is waiting and watching me to see how I'm gonna act maybe? And then although…"
"Karin u can email me at [email protected] Here is something ironic. I think we are the same person. So I know we were meant to cross paths. My husband also had pulmonary edema after his Trip bypass. They removed the pericardial sac and he was…"

"Amg10 Sending good thoughts your way. Grief was so intense that first year. I just passed the 4 year mark. I was married for 27-1/2 years, we were a couple for 28 years and best of friends for 37 years. For most, things do get better with time. So…"
"I'm sorry I'm so late with my comment on your blog. 4 mos. is not a long time. I remember feeling the way you do for what seemed an eternity. I'm sorry to say that what Laurajay writes is the truth. Grief takes TIME. Yes,…"
"It was very sad to read your story. I'm sure the memories are quite painful and were likely hard to write down, so thank you for sharing. My wife also had a series of protracted illnesses over a 25 year period, but fortunately nothing quite as…"
"My hubby suffered a heart aneurysm in 2001. They fixed it, but predicted he would only live a few more years. He developed diabetes, then later... bad kidney and cancer everywhere, with also 8 brain tumors. So much…"
