Losing your temper...

Posted on November 19, 2013 at 5:19pm 14 Comments

I am going through a hard time with the fact, I got angry and mad at times. My precious wife died  Aug. 25 2013. I was her principle care giver for her personal and general needs. Hospice was a big help during the times they came,but I was the everyday provider.As her health diminished and her bodily functions became more stressful,I had gotten mad  and angry...I cannot believe I did this to a person who could not help themselves and was dieing.

Hi Max
I typed a long lettER yesterday & it didn't send so I'm typing again:( I"m so very sorry for Elizabeth's death. Living with the memories of their suffering is SO hard. I know-- my husband John was 48 when he died from ALS/Lou Gehrig's Disease 17 monthes (APRIL 25,2012)after he was diagnosed & it was HORRIBLE!! He suffered a lot & it ended with me giving him TOTAL care--which I'm glad I could do that for him but always felt like I didn't do enough!! We were married almost 29 years ! Elizabeth KNEW how much you loved her --you showed that with the care you gave!! Yes, this site is better than the 6 o'clock news --having so many others from all over that you can talk too--they understand!! Cathy

I'm so sorry for the loss that brings you here, but glad you've found us. The Groups are a good place to start; you'll find others in circumstances similar to your own. Look for one for widowers. The Forums offer many topics of conversation, and there is almost always someone on for real time support and friendship in Chat. I hope you'll find the same comfort and understanding here that I have.
