I have noticed that it is hard, as a widow, to find a slot when you need something done. It seems I always have to work around everyone else's schedules, even when I pay someone to do a job. Even my vacation was planned around others' schedules. Should I be more assertive? Am I a passive-aggressive person? I asked my son to help me do a simple task, and we ended up arguing because he can't follow instructions. A strong reminder why he's not living with me at age 43. I hate to even ask anyone to do anything any more. I am praying for God to send me some help. Widowhood is taking a toll on me physically, mentally, and spiritually even.
My husband was killed in a car accident in February 2011. We had been married 43 years. This year would have been 50 years. I have still not gotten over his loss. We were best friends and did almost everything together. Now I have no friends. All of my friends were married and I didnt like being the fifth wheel. I have one son who is married and lives about 40 minutes from me. ...
It's been 3 years and 4 months (original post had a typo) since my husband death and still struggling with this. If there are any prayer warriors out there, please pray for me.thanks. Barb.
