Profile Information

I guess I should share a little bit about myself and my journey so far. Well my husband of only a little over 3 years passed away 18 months ago suddenly and very unexpected. It was the day before his 35th birthday which made it so much worse and harder. It was also about 3 weeks before my 27th birthday. I couldn't believe that I wasn't even 27 yet and was already a widow. That was a very weird and difficult thing to imagine and start to connect with myself. Even though my mom became a widow at a pretty young age (she was 43 and that was 5 years prior to my loss), I still had a very stereotypical image of widows. And until losing my husband I thought losing my dad was the hardest thing I had to go through. Oh and I almost forgot to mention in my ramble, I have two boys ( 4 and 2 years old) which only make the loss of my husband so much greater and harder. I really hope this place helps somehow. Sorry for the ramble and sorry if it doesn't all make sense.

Just joined this group my husband of 36 years died in an accident in May 2012. I have a lot of friends and family, but no one who really knows how I feel, and I do not expect them to. I just find at times I still feel overwhelmed with my Grief.

It's been 1 year for me...thought I was doing OK and then it hit me like a freight train all over again. Having a hard time being around all of our "couples" friends, whom I love dearly.

I want to thank you for being our group greeter. Being new I am eager to hear from others. I wanted to thank Kim for her comment to me but I was not sure how to thank her individually.  I guess I need more guidance on how to reach out within the group

I too am new.  Thanks for being our group leader.  My husband died on January 2 of this year. I too am going to Camp Widow in San Diego.  

I would love to meet at the pool bar at 4pm - and get together with all of you.  We are the faces of widowhood.  Who would have thought?  Not in my lifetime! No me! But yes, me.
