So sorry about the breast cancer, I had it when I was in my thirties. I am now 68. They removed my breast (wanted to remove the other, I refused) and now if diagnosed with the same they would just "watch…"
"A dear friend who has been widowed twice has told me to take it one day at a time. That is what I am doing. I force myself to get up and start the day. I cry all the time and am losing weight. I just cannot imagine my life…"
"I think people are very uncomfortable when death comes up. They don't want you to tell them that you are lonely, hurting, sad, angry, depressed and don't want to get up in the morning. There are people with banal comments, like…"
So sorry for your loss, it has been less than a month for me and I hate this new life. This is not a life, it's hell. I have always been a strong person but I am crumbling right now. I can't believe I will never…"

I keep thinking he will walk into our kitchen again. We will open a bottle of wine, I will cook a delicious meal and we will laugh and talk. He will touch me. I will touch him. We were married for 45 years. His…"

Riskybiz, I feel your pain and am very sorry for your loss. We are all in the same boat and trying to navigate this terrible, terrible journey. I wish I had suggestions to comfort you but I too am taking it one day at a time. If it helps though, the crying will start to space itself out further. I thought I would never stop crying and then I went for one day without doing it. In a weird sort of a way it was an accomplishment. It didn't mean I didn't miss my wife but I guess, I found other ways to direct this grief. Walking everyday has helped. Eating a little more healthy has helped as well. Sometimes I have to force myself to do things and yes, I fall into the depression hole a couple times a week.
I miss my wife. My best friend. Some have suggested going to church. I'm still not ready to hear about Gods plan. Church makes me angry. Writing my thoughts has helped some. I am reading a book about Signs. Things that happen to show your loved one is near. I'm still looking and waiting.
I hope my words have helped or brought some kind of comfort.
