"laurajay, I'm hanging on to your words right now. It's been a very hard week. I do believe you when you say things will change and wisdom will come in the future, but it feels like happiness, or even contentment will forever be elusive.…"

"Like you, Patience, we didn't really make a big deal out of Valentinrs Day...just acknowledged it in small ways. And you're right too about feeling a little left out now that there is no one to share it with. I'm so lucky to have two…"

"In four weeks, it will be the two year anniversary of my husband's sudden death. He died sitting right next to me on the couch one evening. He layer his head back and fell asleep. Too fast and I knew it felt wrong. I couldn't revive him.…"

"AED, thank you, thank you for taking the time and effort to share these feelings and realizations with us. It seemed that you were talking just to me because these were words I needed to hear today. So many others, I'm sure feel as I do."

I know what you mean about Christmas not meaning much.it's been 18months 2nd Christmas but I still haven't decorated for Christmas I just go to my daughter's for a day we all exchange gifts and try to do the best we can. When I get home my two dogs sit with me but thats my life now no cuddling no kisses no hugging. I have no grandkids to enjoy so yes Christmas doesn't mean much. I hope you can have some happiness.

Hi! I am new here but noticed we belong to the same 3 groups. I have been reading some of your comments and I want you to know, I feel the same way you do. I have no purpose here anymore. I just want to be with my husband who died suddenly and unexpectedly Thanksgiving day. I sit in my house and only go out when necessary. It has been 6 months now. I thought things were supposed to get better, but for me they are getting worse. Wanted you to know, you are not alone. I am hoping this site can help me. Seems I am sinking deeper into depression. If you ever want to talk, I am here!

I am also in that mode too, I have been getting things in order and also not wanting to buy anything expensive. Funny how all those things you just had to have before, now seem meaningless. Why do we do this?
