My wife, soulmate and one-true-love lost her battle to breast cancer 11 weeks ago and I am finding trying to cope UNBEARABLE. I am in the depths of despair. Many friends & family members simply do not know how to communicate with me anymore and always seem to say annoying things like, "things will get better in time". I find this to be unfathomable now and in the foreseeable future. I am not a negative person by nature, but..... I am seeing a helful grief therapist once a week (thank God). I joined this group, like all of you, not because I wanted to but because I think I had to. In searching around the web you all seem to be so helpful and kind to one another. So, I look forward to learning from all of you how to cope with my situation in however long I must be here on earth without my lovely wife (often I hope not too long). You people make a difference - God Bless All Of You
