"Hi Danielle, I thought maybe I should move this post to your wall. Not sure how all this works. I am so sorry about your husband. I have no idea how I'll cope when it gets near that one year mark. Anniversaries of any kind terrify me. My…"
I really am so sorry you are here. I am in a very similar situation to yourself, my husband Mike died at 39 years old on the 17th November last year, very suddenly. We had been married 11 years.
It is a horrendous time you are going…"
The balloons at the park sounds fantastic, and the plaque, what an amazing idea. I lost Mike in November last year - he was 39 - so this October will be his 40th, I have been starting to dread it but I love how you just got out there…"
Fantastic, thank you. I am SO glad I've booked the camp. October will be Mike's 40th birthday,, 17th November the 12month anniversary of his death - and I've just returned to my home country for the first time since he…"
Lovely to hear from you, sorry it has to be in these circumstances. Newcastle is a great spot in the world, I have a very good friend there.
Your message was a light in a rather miserable day, I was having a shocker of a time today…"
"Aaah! I missed it too, so glad I spotted this conversation. Will be off to the shops for a dress!
I feel so confused about how to feel about the Camp! I'm excited and then I remember what it's all about......ugh....."
I'm also a member of this little club. I'm 43 and Mike was 39 when he died last year. Hubby and I decided not to pursue having kids after it didn't happen naturally. No regrets, I have four gorgeous young nephews who I…"
"Me! I'll be flying in from Australia so am arriving a couple of days early to get rid of jet-lag :)
My husband and I had just moved to Pennsylvania last year when he passed away very suddenly. I've still got all our belongings in our…"
My hubby died in November last year and both my birthday and our wedding anniversary were in the following February. Ugh. I tried to ignore both of them. Kept very quiet about the wedding anniversary and told no one but my sister told…"
I hope you're doing okay, I know you posted this a little while ago but I wanted to add my voice to the 'Yes, its normal!' chorus. I too had those feelings, almost like I was at the very peak of a rollercoaster then the…"
"Miket, your post was heartbreaking and yet so beautifully, brutally honest. Keep crying (though it is exhausting!) and keep grieving at your own pace. No one can tell you how to do this, nor should they try. Please hang in there. As suddenly as…"
Yes, my friends have started asking me about that. And asking me to consider writing about it. I feel like it will be on the cards, because this is an experience like few others. I had thought about things I'd like to write down over…"
"I have been able to read. I think it is my escape actually. And I'm part of a book group so I had a 'reason' to push through the book. I guess it was a way to get to that 'normal mundane life'. If I didn't read it I had…"
"Gorgeous post, Steve. The heart wants what the heart wants, isn't that what they say? It sounds to me like you've done all you possibly can, to be honest with yourself and with the man beside you now. And he's made his choice,…"
I thought maybe I should move this post to your wall. Not sure how all this works. I am so sorry about your husband. I have no idea how I'll cope when it gets near that one year mark. Anniversaries of any kind terrify me. My thoughts are with you. xx
