"Love, cookie, I am so sorry for your loss. The advice that daringtoday and Mrs Bear gave is what I too experienced. I am nearly four years out. Life is so very different now from when I was suddenly widowed at where you are now. I remember feeling…"

5 months and I'm feeling so down. Is this normal?

Hi all, I have so many things on my mind and am having such a hard time. My love died of acute heart failure in March. I am struggling with PTSD from it and depression. I am seeing a therapist and on meds but I don't feel they're helping, I've been feeling worse every day for a week now. My mind keeps going back to the moment, and I keep remembering the life we shared and we so suddenly lost. We were going to get engaged this summer...I want to quit my job, I only work part-time and am…See More

"Covid is the last thing I think about. Very quickly my husband was diagnosed and died - within a month with the total illness lasting about 3 months. My friends and some of his family were all here in our home as he made his transition. No Covid…"

"KMDH, I could have written what you just posted except my husband died a month before yours on Feb 29. I also had no funeral or closure. I still don't know what he died of - waiting for tox screen results after an inconclusive autopsy, but I…"

"Love, Cookie -- I try to focus on Bible verses of strength and I also try to paint a little each day. Both of those seem to calm me...but I'm still have crying times every day - yesterday I only had 2, so guess I'm doing better. But I…"

Looking for Hope? Anything?

Hi all, I am new and learning my way around the site. My partner died unexpectedly on March 28 of this year. I feel like I am a wreck. With COVID I feel so scared of everything, and I miss him more than words can explain. Nothing looks, tastes, sounds, or feels the same in my life without him. I wish I could have him by my side to go through all of the other losses and scares I have had in these past two weeks. Is there something that brings you comfort or keeps you centered and present during…See More
