"Not crazy at all...more than 18 months and just tackling my husband's things. The only reason is because I decided to sell the house and I'm moving on July 15. You will know when you are ready...it is a huge task.."

Hi Magee77 - thanks for your support.  Somehow it means more coming from someone who knows rather than someone who's just placating me.

We had an off-site business meeting this week and I had to tell someone who works in another office (who didn't know) that my husband died.  She cried.  I don't even know her well.  I suppose the empathy is nice, but when people tear up, I want to cry.  I didn't this time.  The last thing I want to do is break down in front of my colleagues. 

 

I really hate telling people because there's just no good way to say it and no good way for them to respond, but I'm not going to pretend he's still around when he isn't.  Not everyone has a stereotypical family.

 

Thanks again for reaching out to me.  Sorry for the rant.

 

saturnMOON

So sorry for your loss.  Sending you bigs hugs and wishing you peace. My children have asked me those same questions and I know it is hard. This is a pain you wish no one would have to experience.

Magee77, thanks for the friend request.  I have read some of your posts and totally relate to your feelings and experiences.  Getting blind-sided with waves of sadness is one of them.  Just when I think I'm coping better, I have a bad day, crying all of the time.  I also read your post where your in laws were talking about all of the places they were going and things they were planning to do.  That too is a source of pain for me.  What do I do by myself?  Where do I go?  All of my friends still have their spouse/family and are busy living life, going places...The aloneness is overwhelming.  Anyway, thanks for listening.

So sorry we have to meet this way, I am Arnie from NJ and offer friendship and a ear when needed. I do not write much but love the chat feature so I hope to see you there. My losses are many in short times, a 19 yr old son, a wife of 21-1/2 yrs, a Dad and BF wife all in span of less than 7 months, new and very deep but I have found an amazing place of comfort and healing, this place has been a big part of it. The rest of my "healing" is for private conversations. Just wanted to say Hi and welcome to the club no one wanted to belong to.

Love and hugs for my new friend

I'm so very sorry for your loss, Magee77, but glad you found us. There is caring support and friendship here. Here's a good place to start: Basic Site Info

Join the Groups that fit you to connect to others with similar experiences. Take a look at our Forum discussions where you'll find meaningful conversations taking place.  Those 'chirps' you hear when you're in Widowed Village mean people are talking in the Chat Room; stop in some time and join the conversations.  I look forward to getting to know you here.
