"Thiswitch, thank you for your reply, it’s nice to know someone else feels the contradiction of not wanting people to feel sorry, but also wanting them to understand. Weekends are difficult; it’s Sunday and I was doing a little shopping…"

"It is 6 months today since I lost the love of my life after 29 years. Yet it seems like a lifetime since I’ve been without his love and presence. Time has a way of distorting reality when it comes to this particular grief I think. As he would…"

"GracieB, I am so sorry for your loss and happy that you’ve reached out here. It saddens me deeply that you have so little support in your grief other than your sister and father. But what gifts they are to you now! It has to be doubly…"

"Thank you Summergirl. After losing 9 pounds (off a very small frame to start with), I’ve been cooking and eating well for the past months. Only 7 more pounds to go; I do sleep well, which is a miracle as well as a gift. At the same time my…"

"I am so very sorry for your loss.  It will be 3 years since my husband passed and the journey has been with plenty of ups and downs.  I have made progress but on the difficult days it feels like I am going backward.  I recall the…"

"Melissa, I understand about something seemingly as small as toothpaste. I still have the tube we took to the hospital, his favorite brand, not mine. I have come to call these things, like the last jar of mustard in the fridge we shared,…"

"I’m relieved to know that so many are having a hard time going places where we all went as couples. My husband Ralph and I went EVERYwhere together in our city and so many others in FL. One I’ll never be able to return to is St.…"

"Denise, it’s been a few days over 4 months for me since my husband passed.  And your comments “I’m not the same person I was, I go through the motions every day, but I feel lost and empty” struck such a chord!…"

"My husband passed away on Oct. 5, 2017, this is all new and sad territory. A fairly routine heart surgery resulted in a hospital induced infection, and in less than 2 months he was gone; a healthy, robust and active man  still competing in…"
