I'm new to this site. I just lost my wife who was my high school sweetheart. She was only 33 and so am I. We have two little boys. One is 6 and the other is 1. I'm now a single father of two. This is by far the hardest thing I've ever experienced in life. Sometimes I just want to run far far away from it all. Unfortunately I can't because those boys need me. So I continue to stay as strong as possible. One day at a time. I will read these post daily in search of inspiration. Knowing I'm not the only one going through this specific type of loss is somewhat comforting knowing they can relate specifically. I lost my wife, my best friend, the mother of my kids and lover all in one day. And it was unexpected. Life is hard. But I gotta keep pushing. Mainly for her because I know that's what she'd want me to do. I hope each day gets better for all of us!
I have been in this group forever, but most who did come here realized it wasn't exactly hopping...so they left. I was excited (not because you all were suffering too, but because there were others to chat with going through some of the same stuff) But now it seems like everyone has abandoned ship.......AGAIN. :(
My oldest son, who is 66 years old lost his wife to liver cancer several years ago. He owns a home on 5 wooded acres so he was busy for awhile. He finally sold his RV and went on a CRUISE and met someone! She lives in a different state but travels for her job, so they meet in different places, wherever her job takes her. They are having fun! SHE is quite a bit younger -- 50 years old...
