It has been a year since I lost my husband. I'm only 26 years old and the thought of ever being able to marry or have kids doesn't seem possible. People keep asking me if I'm seeing anybody or hows…Continue

Am I wrong to be jaded....?

I don't know where to begin... I lost my husband almost 2 years ago and I find myself still in shock most days. My husband and I had been together almost 4 years, but married only 5 days yes that's not a typo 5 Days, he collapsed during his nightly run. It was the best and worst week of my life. We have no children, we were just starting our lives.

I can't help but feel like his immediate family didn't really recognize me as his wife because of the short time. But I'm his wife…


Holidays and heartaches

I met my late husband 4 years ago, we were inseperable, he was/ is my best friend. He knew every story, every heartbreak, and every scar. I have never felt so lost in my life I feel like since he left this earth I have lost everything. I was unable to afford our home so had to sell it, now live with friends until I can get back on my feet, I failed out of RN school because I was dealing with everything. Most days I don't know why I even get out of bed.

As our anniversary apporachs and…


Wedding anniversary

Posted on May 28, 2014 at 11:01am 5 Comments

I'm very new to this group, as I have tried to avoid the pain and grief, but we all know that you can only hold it in for so long. This sunday would be our one year wedding anniversary, and I'm quite afraid of how to handle it all I can seem to think about is the life we could be having and what will never be. Any pointers on how to cope?
