My husband died from an aortic dissection on December 16,2017. He had just turned 60 the month before. We were married for 36 years. I met him when I was 15 and married at 17. I always miss my husband and I don’t see that ever changing. I feel like I am doing better most days but I still have days that I just can’t believe he is gone. It helps to hear the story of others and to know that how I am feeling is not unusual and that I am not alone. I have three grown daughters,one still lives with me thankfully. It has been 19 months since my life and being changed forever.

My husband passed away suddenly in May of 2016, so it's been just over a year. I didn't think I'd survive the first year. Now that I have, I'm trying to understand what I need to be happy. Right now, without having Greg to share life, dreams, and goals with, I feel isolated and alone. I don't want to let go of the connection that I have with Greg, but I also want to feel alive again. I'm trying to understand how to build a new path for my life without loosing my connection with him. I'm hoping that Camp Widow might be helpful with this. Has anyone found help with this from Camp Widow and/or though any books, therapy groups, etc.?

Thanks for the welcome. I am brand new here. My husband of 25 years died very suddenly on December 30, 2015. We have 3 sons, who were at the time 24, 19 and 17. All of the widows I know in my community are 20+ years older than me.

Thanks for the welcome comments. I am new to chat rooms. I feel like I should have it together but even after 15 years I miss my daughter who drowned while I was at work and my husband died 2 years later from `cancer leaving me with 3 boys to raise. My mother died 3 years latter from cancer. People think I am strong but that is a lie. I force myself to work as I do not have a money tree and to volunteer at different  places other wise I would not leave the house. The sadness is overwhelming at times and I wonder how other people deal with it

Hi Supa, Thank you for the friend request.  I don't know why you did, but I appreciate it.

Hi Supa, I know my involvement here on WV has been sporadic at best. I been through some tough seasons since my wife's death in December, but I do know, for the toughest period, WV is what got me through. 

One time, I deleted all my friends here, and decided to stay away, only to be back re-friending everyone the next day! People never judged me for this.
Well I actually did it again!  Now I just friended Arnie and you.

Supa, I need some support. I recently started a local support group for widowed people, and I need some guidance. I see it as a big responsibility and know I need some suggestions.

I hope I would be able to come back on here and receive support. thank you for considering. My biggest concern is to screen potential members without offending them as if I am questioning their honesty or sincerity.

I have 14 members at this time. and meeting again in a couple weeks. I want to be prepared. 
Thank you for your help. Victor

Hi Supa

How are you? Hope you are fine and well.
Some days ago I learned that in my meighborhood there are other 3 widows in their 40s.
i went to make my periodic chat with the priest and suggested him to establish a support group for widows, which here totally lack. He liked the idea immediately.
For my job (i am an IBCLC - lactation consultant) and my background in volounteering into LLL, i am skilled in counseling, peer-to-peer groups, and communications skills. Anyway, grief field is still pretty new to me, as I am a widow since Sept 2013.
In Italy widows groups are really rare and usually held by psycologists or "experts", not by peers.
I would like to join someone who can orientate me and give me some useful tools in establishing this group.
Hope you can help me

many thanks for all you do!


Martina, Rome, Italy

Hi Robin,

Thanks for your quick response re my username. I have already contacted the other Beachgirl to say we have the same name and what to do? I haven't received a response yet. I think it would be helpful and move things along if the change came from you. Make your decision and please get back to both of us. Thank you that would be best.

I appreciate all you do to help all of us be able to reach out and share our heartache with one another.  thanks ... Maria (Beachgirl)
