I was married to my spouse for many years and hoping to connect with others who share the same loss.

Hi folks,

    I first want to say I am new to the site. Reading these posts allows me the comfort of knowing I’m not the only one. I was married for 26 years to my wife, Ellen. I was happily married and I must state that she was my best friend. Unfortunately, she passed away of Cancer in 2005. Lost, alone, in shock, and totally in disarray is how I found myself sitting in a lonely dimension of time.

     This left me in a social/economic style abandonment.  What I mean by this is it will total derail one’s normal functionality in life.  I remember our accountant that lost his wife with the same illness and he could not work with numbers years after his wife passed. I am sure anyone could write a book in this area and not cover what they have experienced.

      Today, I am much better. However, the demands of being a single parent has left me with no time to really heal.  To conclude on more of a positive note, I have advanced myself in some of the areas, but looking for the answers in others.

Thank you David,
It's good to have a safe place to talk about how crazy my husband's family makes me feel! I know I've read even worse stories than mine on widville- all very sad...
Hope you are doing well! Thank you for being a friend!

I enjoy reading your postings...

I'm so glad that you found this site too, I feel blessed to have also. It's been comforting to know that what I express here is completely understood. It's a journey I never expected but one that others have taken before me and more will take after (unfortunately). I don't have to travel it alone. It's nice to meet you David.
