I am so angry and at the same time emotionally set back. Yesterday I received a call and the caller I.D. showed it to be my husband calling from my phone. I almost picked up thinking it was my son,…Continue

My husband and I took all the steps to prepare for our final days, but I don't think either of us considered it would eventually come to pass. On March 18, 2018 it did. I lost my partner of 49 years,…Continue

sis replied to Portpom's discussion How do you share without worrying people? Also is it normal to be in denial?
"Portpom, I came to this site so I could release emotions without stressing family with worry. I don't do facebook, so this site has been helpful for me. Everyone here has experienced loss of their love, but realize that grief is like…"

"I haven't tried online dating and feel uncomfortable with the idea, so you took a step I'm not willing or wanting to take. But, I don't want to spend what time I have left alone. I was a part of my husband for 49 years, but we got to…"

"I can identify. I had been having premonitions about dying in sleep from a brain aneurysm. I said nothing to my husband because I thought it was going to be me. I had fallen from our back steps and my head bounced off the brick wall a few years…"

"Dee 1960, After the initial anger, I, too, thought it may be a little acknowledgement that he is still here. I keep asking, but thus far have not felt any confirmation as I do often when I communicate with him. But, just in case I have not been able…"

"Interesting idea. Right now I just don't answer if I don't know the caller, but you have planted this in my mind for those insistent callers, and I get many of them."

"I'm sorry for you but relieved this has happened to someone else.  A few weeks after my husband died I also got calls showing my husband's name as the caller.  It made me feel so scared and really bothered me.  It happened…"

"Sis, I know how upsetting that can be. If you have the message recorder— I would let it go, don’t answer it.  I will answer calls only if the caller identifies him or herself and leaves a message. I will pick up before they hang up…"

Scam Calls From Husband

I am so angry and at the same time emotionally set back. Yesterday I received a call and the caller I.D. showed it to be my husband calling from my phone. I almost picked up thinking it was my son, when I realized I didn't have my son listed the way it came up. That's when my eyes looked at the number. It was my phone calling itself. While I know this has been going on for a lot of years because my sister has been a widow for 10 years now, and she received one 2 years after her husband passed,…See More

I'd Like to see him once again...it's a desire so intense and so impossible...and talk to him and say all the words that i didn't say...i saw him in my dreams sometimes but he never say a word...i think evolution did something wrong...we do have a stronger heart to accept the hard laws of death, separation without return...instead we suffer and we know no one in the sentire universe can do nothing at all....so the only chance we have is go on with our life accepting the most cruel reality... Live without our  love?!!? Goodnight dear SIS..in Milan is almost midnight...i hope find some solace but i'm still in desert with my broken heart ciao
