I am heartened by the way you have described how you are feeling. I too cannot multitask anymore as I cannot focus long enough to remember things. I too need to accept that I will not be the same after this and that is how it is supposed…"
I can't believe how accurately you describe what I too am feeling. I don't know who I am anymore either. I am actually 180 degrees different. I also have had panic attacks and flashbacks connected to my husbands death, also 3…"
I am so glad to hear someone else say that this is an especially horrible time to be grieving. You are experiencing the pain of losing someone soooo close , along with trying to handle the conditions of that loss. My husband died of COVD…"
"To Maggie May,
It breaks my heart that you feel like you abandoned your husband, but I too feel that way. My husband died from COVID in late April . He was on a ventilator and because we could not visit him I feel like he was scared and…"
"To MSLV4 - I loved being reminded that my husband's energy is all around me. I miss him so horribly right now. I will continue to talk to him and hold on to the promise of someday being together again! Thanks...."
"Gigi, I really appreciated the perspective you presented. I feel like the grief blocks my ability to see things differently than what is stuck in my brain right now. Your words have encouraged me and reminded me that God's promise of eternal…"
I am sorry your adult children have not been supportive.
I do not believe that it is unhealthy to leave all of his stuff as it was. I have done the same with absolutely everything of his. I also think he is coming back, because I cannot face…"
You have lifted my spirit with your beautiful and encouraging words. I want so badly to believe that my husband can hear me and is still there to comfort me. You have reminded me that I have Jesus to walk with me and am not alone and can…"
"Father's Day was quite painful. I just lost my husband April 28th. Our three grown children came over and we looked at many pictures and tried to remember the good memories. It passed the time, but in the end, seemed to almost make things…"
"I lost my husband in April to COVID and cannot cope witht he trauma of how it happened. I too am trying to keep my faith in God but it seems almost impossible right now., How can a merciful, kind God take someone we love in such a brutal way? It has…"

Are you any less anxious yet? I am still so angry that I couldn't be with him after so many years of taking care of him - I think I am stuck on that more than I am that he isn't here. And we are reminded of COVID every day. I have NO patience for the covid deniers - that's where I aim my anger. I have never been an angry person, so I don't like feeling this way. Will you be on the ZOOM call later today?
Thanks for responding. My husband and best friend for 47 years passed away in a Rehab Center from COVID on April 23. The staff was great, but not being able to be with him was and still is torture. I was with both of my parents when they passed, and that was comforting. I know he is in a better place, and I feel him with me, so I have some good moments - but I just feel so isolated (duh - I am still isolating). One day at a time
