I lost my husband this past october after a lengthy illness. even though he wasn't expected to ever make it home from the hospital, he did come home and lived 18 months before he died. He had 4 heart blockages and was not a candidate for heart surgery. He spent 5 months on a ventilator. Even though his death was expected, I am having a very hard time without him. he was my best friend and confidant. I was better home alone at first than I am now. If I have one day at home, I have to leave. I get so nervous that I feel like I could crack up. I don't feel as if I am a part of the real world. Everything seems like a dream. I just need to talk to others who have had the same experience.
