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

When I was awake this morning I was thinking of writing a note to thank the people who has helped me in the grief journey. I think this message provided me with the motivation (ie. I don't need this s$%^!).This question is one of the most hurtful question you can ask to a fellow griever. But I can imagine why you are questioning my validity. I'm sorry I don't feel the need to show the death...
So it seems my grief is taking me to some dark places. What if the end of life in this world actually is the end of our consciousness and all aspects of our existence are no more. Our soul does not move on as it too is non-existent. Am I alone in thinking these grim thoughts? Is this part of the grief and mourn continuum.
