"Being a young widow does suck for the lack of resources. Seriously, when I joined this community it asks for your age, and the year I was born wasn't even an option! I lost my wife about 7 months ago while we were 24-years-old. I just started…"

"Broken Diva - I only just passed my year mark and I feel like year two is much worse than my first ...i am sorry I do not have any more wisdom for you. I am in misery and of course, like you - missing my life with my soul mate."

New Blog

I am not sure where to post this (pardon my ignorance) but I recently started a blog, my life as a 25-year-old widow. I have found very few resources for young widows which is mainly the reason I started it - and to document our life together. In case anyone is interested the link is www.francesbloompoetry.com - let me know if you have blogs as well that might help me navigate this awful miserable time. See More

"I know this was posted a while ago but I just saw it - for me, I was 25 when I became a widow (no children- all future milestones ripped away) - and I immediately started therapy twice a week (still do after one year). For me, it is the one place I…"

kat replied to Canshifter's discussion What is the most insensitive thing someone has said to you about your loss?
"The comparison to animals is ridiculous! I just had someone today tell me her dog passed and she knows what I am going through. Sometimes you just have to shake your head. I also had someone compare my loss to her Great Grandmother... that she…"

"Hi Megraf, thank you for taking the time to respond to my post. My therapist has told me many times I need to make new friends that are supportive and nurturing (because the few I have, which is essentially zero) are the opposite of that. Nights are…"

"September 4, 2017 - the day my childhood sweetheart died, he was 27 and I was 25. It is a sad, cold and lonely month - but most days are that way. "

laying with the torture
of the abundant murk
like some fading sea,

my eyes
steam up
like a creamy
morning mist.

my mind
feels like honey
bursting from its comb.

my heart
has grown wrinkled
from hours
in
the river.

and some nights
as the wind swells in,
I think my grief
could make
the day
stand still.

Thank you for responding.  I'm sorry for your loss at such a young age.  I'm pretty much at home not really doing anything or going anywhere either.  It's still hard for me to accept that my husband isn't coming back and I just don't know what to do with myself.
