Still pretty new to this widow business and not at all happy about being here. Death is part of life and I have to keep on going but I could certainly use advice from others in similar situations. Thank you.

2015 A New Year

Posted on January 10, 2015 at 6:30pm 2 Comments

  Well, I've made it through most of the second set of holidays. Charlies birthday would have been Jan,6th. He would have been 64.  That's the end of the biggies till May which will be Mothers Day, my birthday and would have been our 46th anniversary.

  There are days I don't think I'll ever be really happy again. Then there are days I believe I've put my grief behind me. Oh what pranksters our minds are. It's different day to day, week to week, month to month.

  I am resolved…


I am a widow

I still find that hard to say. I'm a widow.

Six months a widow. I don't think things have gotten much better. I'm still bitter and angry. This week has been difficult,and now Mother's Day.  I wasn't his mother but I was the mother of his children and he always made it a special day for me.

Then my birthday is May 26th and what would have been our 45th anniversary is May 31st. Follow that up with Fathers Day in June. My summer is off to a rough start...

I took that short…


I am a Widow

I've not posted here for a while.  There have been a few changes. I 've been going through all the financial stuff and have come to the realization that Hubby has left me with too little funds. I am barely going to have enough to pay the mortgage and utilities. I do have some savings but I need to make them last for about 2 yrs,3 mths. I think I'll have enough each month from those savings to make up the difference.That is when I will be eligible for SS and Medicare. My health insurance…

I hate it hate it hate it. I do not like this being a widow.

I have spent the day taking down the few Christmas decorations and the little tree I bought. In the south it's supposed to be bad luck to take it down before New Years Day. I'll take my chances this year.

Hubby always did the tree and put everything up afterwards. I miss him so much. His teasing grin, his gentle touch, his oh-so-tight hugs when I needed comforting. He's not here to comfort me during these missing him…

Hello, Charles wife. Just read your post about the meltdown at work...and I KNOW what you mean. But I read on where you were talking about the financial matters weighing on you. Dear, this is just friendly advice...I'm not trying to be nosy...but just wait a little longer, ok? You've only been without him for right under 10 months. A little more time will probably make your choices clearer for you. I have done next to nothing financially in the past year...I know I am not on firm footing right now. Any mistakes I make financially could wreak havoc for the rest of my life and that scares the stuffing out of me. I will be at one year September 23rd and I'm feeling so lost that I don't trust myself with any major decision about money...or anything else for that matter. I wish you the best, dear lady, and will say a prayer for you for peace, and confidence, and clear decisions. Cindy

Hi CharliePhillipPhil. I don't have many words but go to this place for solace. I feel I am living a nightmare and am. Sick of people saying what a wonderful couple my 37yo husband and I were. We have a three year old and his daddy's birthday is Monday I thought Wednesday was bad I am dreading that more

Hi CharliePhillipPhil   I'm glad we can be friends.  Thanks for asking.  It seems so much easier talking to someone experiencing what we are going through.  But I am sorry that we all  had to meet because of our losses.  Take care of yourself during the holidays.  I anticipate it will be hard since it's the first for each of us.

I'm so very sorry for your loss, but glad you've found us. Try the Groups as a starting point; that is where you will find others in similar situations. Also the Forums offer discussions on many topics, you are sure to find some relevant to your circumstances. Links to both are at the top of your page. I hope you will find the understanding you seek here, as I did.
