"Your motivation will come. Just don't rush it. My mind has a lot of motivation. My body after working all week and being the single parent of a 16 year old says otherwise by the time the weekend rolls around. However, I was proud of myself when…"
"Yes. It's been 2 1/2 years since my husband took his life. My daughter and I moved into a new house about 6 months after he passed, but we still have our old house. We are getting ready to put it up for sale soon. People get on me all the time…"
"You are not alone. Funny I just logged in here to unsubscribe from this site because my situation didn't for anybody else's situation. I was married 24 years to a great guy that was controlled by mental illness and stubbornness both of…"
"Bobmac, my husband passed away fall of 2014. My daughter was 14 at the time. our house was way too big for us and on acreage that I could not maintain. We stayed until my daughter was ready to move on. March of 2015 we bought a new house, had…"
"Hatch1 you are doing better than you think. Last week was the one year anniversary of my husband's passing. It's totally normal to take a few steps forward and then some back. Do whatever in the heck you want to do and are comfortable…"
"I just wanted to reach out to everyone and say Happy Memorial Day Weekend. I feel especially indebted to the military members and their families this year knowing the sacrifice they made for people like me they did not even know to be able to have…"
"C from BC I know exactly how you feel. My husband passed away this past October. He was a commercial/industrial electrician for 31 years. He could fix anything. If not, he always knew a guy from all of the jobs he had been on.
Stuff that would have…"
"Hi losthoward. Widowhood does suck. I found once I accepted that it sucked and just let myself grieve the way I need to, it helped me realize I can't "fix" this and needed to stop trying to try. Everybody is so different and has to…"
"It was hard to get a long. The worse he got the more I pulled away. I had to be strong for our daughter.
We lost mike in Oct 2014. We are now taking more steps forward than back . Were doing one on one counseling every week which had been a huge…"
"Steve you should write a book. You are a very interesting man. It's so great to hear others stories. It makes me feel like I'm not the only one. No matter what anyone's past experiences are, grief is the one common denominator we all…"
"Steve you are one awesome person! Thank you for your honesty. I know that you sharing your grieving process is very reassuring to me. As I look at my cluttered house and my stack of paperwork along with raising a 14 year old and a full time job, you…"
"Steve, I think you were very strong. You knew you had reached your limitations and could not do everything so you allowed others into your home to help you take care of Mike.
If my Mike 's passing has taught me anything it has been I can say No…"
"Steve, Mike sounds like he was a great guy. I bet he touched everyone's life he knew. He was very lucky to have you by his side. That may be one of the reasons he was able to remain so strong and positive. I'm so sorry for your loss."
"My husband took his own life this past Oct. We were married 24 years and have a 14 year old daughter. I agree with you H20polo. You have to try to remember the happy and the positive and live in the moment. That is the only way we have gotten to the…"
