"Wow, I can't believe others are experiencing the exact same things that I am. It will be three months on 6/24. I hate that I have no one to talk to and tell my day to. Every day I say good morning and good night to his picture and tell him I…"

I'm so sorry for your loss, you lost your husband a day after mine. It must have been such a shock to have it happen so suddenly. My husband died of cancer, and suffered for more than a year, but, even though we knew he was dying, nothing can prepare you for the finality of death. I also attended a griefshare group, and got the workbook, but there was only one other person in the class who had lost her mother, so I stopped going. I did find the readings helpful though. Take care and take it one day at a time...
Hi, KCC, I have just recently joined WV, but have been widowed since September of 2009. I have found that reading about everyone else's stories, feelings, and healing experiences have given me hope and peace. I hope it does for you also. Take care!
So sorry for your loss and our situations do sound pretty similar. It is so hard with almost everything when you've shared everything with your partner for so long, isn't it? There's just nothing that isn't somehow connected. My grown daughter does live very near me and that's been a great help, as we spend lots of time together. I look forward to getting to know you better and, hopefully, we can help each other through this difficult time. Thanks for the friend request and letting me know a bit about your situation. L.
