It has been three months since Martha died peacefully at home in hospice care, attended by her two children, brother, and myself. I'm getting along OK as I struggle to make a new life for myself.

Thank you for adding me as a friend. I'm very sorry that you're having to go through such a rough time. This site as been a gift since the first day. However I offer one piece of unsolicited advice; people heal from grief at different levels, speeds and in a million different a ways. I've found that some even prefer grief to the process of healing, for whatever reasons. I need to heal at my own pace, in my own way... And everyone else should too. Don't be rushed, slowed or stopped in you process. Ok, end of advice. I wish you all the best in seeking healthy choices in your life. Im here if you need to talk, cry or reminisce. Be well!

Hi Marc
First,I want to say how very sorry I am for your loss;(. We all know death will come someday but pray it won't happen for a long , long, L O N G time;(. Unfortunately I became a young widow,at age 49! John was 48! He died April 25, 2012 17 monthes after diagnosis from ALS/Lou Gehrig's Disease--it's a terminal motor-neuron disease/and yes it was horrible!! So I began grieving as soon as he was diagnosed;( We were married 28 years/although not quite as long as yours it's still very hard as you share all your life & love togather as one! So what do I do now?! What can I expect?! These are the questions you muddle through and it does get a lil easier as you learn to cope! My FAITH in Jesus Christ had really helped me as John & I were/are Christians! So I know John can walk & talk once again right now in HEAVEN and I'll see him again 1 day! But I miss him. Cathy

Marc, I'm so very sorry for your loss, but glad that you've joined us here at Widowed Village. I hope you will find the same understanding and support here that I have. You might want to look at the Groups to start (there is a Widowed in 2013 group, for example). You will find someone in the Chat room most any time of day. Links to both are at the top of your page, as well as a Help! link for site related issues. I look forward to seeing you in the Village.
