"Ron, Feeling alone is all-dominating. It eats away all the beautiful things. I hope you can find some peace and quiet with your son. But how can life be full again, as it was? Impossible! I need my husband for that. What a happy life we…"
"I can not do it. Traveling alone. I can prepare everything and leave, but then .... nobody to share anything with. I can imagine that so vividly. No organized trip appeals to me. But what is the alternative? Stay here in this wet and fairly cold…"
"All these reactions are so similar to what I feel and experience myself. Chief John, you are right. People have no concept about how and what our lives are today. How can they also? I myself thought that I was prepared for what was to come because…"
"Hello dear friends,
This second year is very difficult for me. It seems as if all energy has gradually disappeared. I no longer see the sense of doing anything. Or rather: I would like to do something but I really can't afford the energy for it…"
I can hardly imagine what pain these advertisements should cause. My dear husband died of a primary brain tumor: glioblastoma. He had hope to heal until the last day. But suffered terribly. Imagine if we had seen this ad while he was…"
Roxi and Allan,
I sympathize with you. These memorial days are that hard. Of course our loved ones are never out of our minds, but on some days you feel the loss much worse.
Melissa, it is sometimes very hard to find…"
"Today we have been married for 48 years. He will never know that. However, he wanted to be 100 years old and enjoyed every moment. I know he was happy and we were very happy together, but I keep seeing my own mistakes. In the 4 years that he was…"
"Yes Roxy, that is one of the best help you can get in our circumstances: someone who comes to eat with you. Someone who asks you to eat out. Then it's worth the effort again. Just taking care of yourself is nothing.I miss my husband's…"
"Suzan, I hope you're feeling better. Pneumonia is not harmless. I hope someone takes care of you. Take a lot of time to heal. It's indeed so very difficult without your loved one. I think of you.
Hugs from Riet."
As you cannot do the same for the birds, I have problems with the back garden. That was my husband's pleasure and his pride. I am so sorry that large pieces are completely overgrown. I also wanted to keep it nice and tidy ,just as…"
All those birthdays are so difficult. Even more so if you remember the beautiful things you have had together. My dear husband also died from a brain cancer. After a year without him, I still can't afford some nice…"
When my children were here at Easter, I could let them read the nice comments from you. Thank you again. It means so much to feel understood and helped.We had a nice family celebration, where we felt very much together and together…"
Melanoma started inside. Diagnosed Dec after wierd bruises then thought after surgery snd meds and radiation was fighting it but then started getting weaker and weaker than went to ER 2 hrs later had severe seizures and did not respond they said to wait 24 hrs but didn’t make it. COR and all meadures tried. Absolutely a nightmare that haunts me daily
I truly appreciate you responding. You are the first one to comment. My husband fought cancer too but only for 6 months . Its all too fast and horrible. He was the love of my life of course. We only had 14 years it just wasn’t enough. Seems like if in stage 4 and mets to brain the treatment s just aren’t good enough. But I don’t know if it was his time it was his time but I will never understand it. It’s definitely shaken any faith I had. Pretty much trying to make it 5 minutes at a time.
