  • My husband and I both had cancer at the same time. I don't know what the odds are of that happening but I doubt it's a common occurrence. I survived and he did not. I don't know why I was the one to survive. I would say I wish it would have been me who died instead of him but I would not wish this grief upon him. I have read several posts on this board from people who feel suicidal. I...

    Newly widowed...did not want to be the survivor

    So fortunate to have had this man as my husband....never wanted to survive him...now I am hoping praying for some cancer or accident to take me home to him...I sure don't want any family members to know I think that. I am the stepmom, they should have thier Father but now they are stuck with the stepmom and their moms...Dad is better. Plus we have a couple of grand children, but honestly I was...

    I have lost the love of my life.

    Spring 2016 I unexpectedly lost my husband of just under 21 years, being together a total of 25 years. This has been the absolute worst thing that has ever happened in my life. He was my world and I was his world. I am so lost without him by my side. If it were not for my children I dont know what I would do. I have had to keep going because I have a responsibility as a mom to take care of them....

    Young Widow

    I am new to this group. I wasn't sure about joining, but I am thinking it may help me. I lost my husband suddenly almost 6 months ago. He was 43 years old & I am 42. He died of a massive heart attack and I found him when I returned home from work. I was in shock for awhile. I now realize he is gone, but it would help to know I'm not alone & there are others out there in similar situations. ...

    Wedding Band

    My husband never wore a wedding band. He was a mechanic by trade and he also liked to work on his own stock and antique cars when he wasn't working. There was hardly a time when he wasn't working on cars and wearing jewelry is too dangerous for that kind of occupation. I, however, wore a gold wedding band. When he took his last breath, I took the band off of my finger and placed it on his. ...

    Still Standing

    I lost my husband on August 30th of this year, he was killed in a MVA. I was the first person to arrive on the scene of his truck and three other vehicles. My husband was the only fatality. I am really struggling with wanting to just be with him. It is just so much bigger than me, this loss. I have been surrounded by our families but am unable to speak to friends or people publicly, it is...
  • Hi,I am joining in desperation. My next step is suicide...I'm 24.

    I want my husband back

    I lost my husband recently. He was everything. My life is gone. We have two beautiful little girls. Their life can't be gone- they are too young. I don't know what to do with that. I love him so much.
  • Funny thing is that I rarely paid attention to this song when it charted. And I don't believe she ever noticed it either. And yet, it's the first one I "YouTubed" in April 2015, a day after dementia tooke her from me. There's a lyric: "Where I'll find comfort God knows ... " Yes God does know, and I pray that one day He will reveal the answer to me.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yBOQgL731Ac

    Immediately after my husband passed I was sleeping great. Now I am right at four months in and I can not sleep through the night. Did anyone else have this problem?
