Default The hardest things

I think the hardest thing is coming to terms that there is nothing anyone can ever do to change the fact that their gone. Its been 6 weeks now and i just like to write my feelingd on here even if nobody reads it i just feel better having written something. The acheing for him is unbearable even when i would stay at my mums for the weekend u used to miss him like mad but now im never going to have him again or speak to him. I just want to hold him. I feel like my right arm my soulmate my backup my world has gone. Who will protect me who do i gossip with who do i laugh with and who else is there to trust compleatley. I miss him and i just want him to come back so i can love him i miss my little family. I miss him

hi ellief,

Sorry for your loss. This is definately the place to come no matter how you feel or when you feel it. My husband is gone almost a year and the lonliness is still intense and the wanting for him to come home is still there. But we have to learn to get up everyday and breath deeply and find the strength to get through the day and somehow we all do. You can alsways came here to this forum and we will help you gain that strength.

Default So hard

So sorry to hear yet another heart has been broken and another soul mate has left , it's like a roller coaster ride you have your highs and then lows , I have found the lows don't come as often as they did and its been 8 months for me since my wife was taken with that horrible disease C , it is so hard without them
And I can relate to everything you miss about them Helen was my world for 33 years , keep strong love mart x

It will be 7 weeks tomorrow since my Steve passed suddenly. Like you say the pain is so intense it is hard to bear. One minute I think I can cope the next I am in floods of tears. I can picture him on my mind and just cant believe he wont ever walk back through the door. You remember things you did together and things they used to say and it seems impossible to think all of that is now just a memory and some days I think if I didnt have kids I would just go and be with him because living without him seem an impossible task

Default the hardest things

hello teresa your message today is heartbreaking,i am so sad for you for all of us. although it is one year on for me,as yet i do still have a way to go. some of us here have been traveling this road longer but out of the blue suddenly there it is again, we see something, hear a song, a smell and here we go again. today all the big bill renewals came in, car, house insueance that sort of thing and that horrible sick feeling arose up in me as i remembered this time last year, giuls was the bill person and i remembered the shear panic i felt, that inner voice saying YOU WONT BE ABLE TO DO IT ON YOUR OWN. i have family but for their own reasons left me to get on with it, and i have, my husbands family abroad as yet have not been intouch as its the year, thought they might at least send a card but no, now us broken hearts are so very easyly hurt so i just have to shrug it of and move on. but after friday infact saturday evening i was heartbroken all over again
i was wanting so much to turn the corner and realised i need more time to heal. i'm saying all this dear friend because i still believe that all of us will come through and be stronger people for it.
we miss them so much, their laughter, smiles, hugs, strengths but for me i have to daily talk to myself in that this will pass, we just cant see it as yet.
i'm not sure if we will ever get over losing them but we will start to live again, one day, sooner rather than later. take care dear love.

Default 8 weeks today

Can't believe it's already been 8 weeks. He went so fast and unexpectedly...We are doing ok, learning to adjust to our new life.
He keeps sending me signs - the smell of his cologne when no one has been near his chair, his possessions lying around in clear view, while for weeks they were never seen in that spot...If someone was telling me this 9 weeks ago I'd be raising an eye and thinking they were beginning to loose it.
Put up the Christmas Tree this weekend, it was hard, tears were shed ...

Default 2 Months

I am right there with you, Ellie. This is the nightmare that never ends. I find myself crying "Just come back, David. Please just come back." It's ridiculous because I know he can't and won't, but the thought of never seeing him again kills me. Every little thing that happens -- something funny, something annoying, good news, bad news -- my first thought is to call, text or e-mail him and I can't. And it freaking SUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I think about our plans -- something so mundane as our plan to one day ride our bikes to New England to see the fall colors -- and we won't be going and I HATE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm 46 years old. David would have been 43 on December 20th. I've been in several long term relationships. None of them were bad, but none of them were RIGHT. Why did the RIGHT one have to end????

The guilt is getting to me. Why did I let him take the bike that night? Why didn't I make him MOVE more while he lay there paralyzed? (The lack of movement caused a blood clot in this PERFECTLY healthy man.) Why didn't I SHOW and TELL him more often how important he was to me when he was here???? Somebody please hit the rewind button.

I HATE THIS I HATE THIS I HATE THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So, not that it helps, but there are people out there who get "this pain" you are going through Ellie. I'm sorry for your loss. For all of us.
