"Hi Bobbysgirl, thank you for your post. Unfortunately if I play music something will remind me of him and the tears start. I love music but every song seems to hit a nerve with me. Hope it will get better in time. Best wishes"

"A wonderful poem barbie. It epitomises how i am on some days. Sometimes I don’t shower and sit around in my nightie all day. Other days I feel almost normal again and get through the day ok. It is a very personal and sad journey"

Hi everyone, it is awhile since I posted. I have just gotten through the 1st anniversary of my husbands death. It was a very sad day but not as bad as I thought it would be. I went out with a friend who had lost her husband 18months before I lost mine. We went to a movie and then went to his favourite Thai restaurant for lunch, i had a glass of wine to toast him as he loved a glass of wine. My family and friends all posted lovely messages on facebook and my beautiful granddaughter sent me a…

Hi Diva, thank you for your kind words. Sometimes it is like I am under water and struggling to come up for air. It seems I am crying more now after 10 months than I did in the earlier months. Maybe it has something to do with Christmas coming up. Even at 78 I was still IN love with Gil. We had a wonderful life together and I am sorry we didn’t meet sooner so we could have had longer together. In hindsight 26 years was not enough.what I miss the most is thr feel of his arms around me and his…

Welcome Noelene and I am very sorry for the reason you are here. There are several widows in Australia. Dawn lives somewhere around the south in NSW, CherylC lives close to Sydney and Emma lives on the west side of Australia. They are all members here and I am friends with them on FB. Let me know if you would like to connect with them on FB. If you do I will get with each of them and let them know there is another widow who has joined this site and give them your screen name.

Hi Nolene, I have read some of your post but can't reply as I'm not a member of that group.  My heart just breaks for you.  Unfortunately, no body and tell you how long you'll feel the way you feel.  I kept asking that same question when I came here.   

You aren't alone and we all understand just how you feel.  I wish there was something I can say to ease your pain but the simple truth is time is the only thing that can give you some relief.  Connecting with other widows has been very helpful for me.  ((Hugs)) I pray for peace to come to you.
