How do I do this?
I lost my husband on November 22nd from a heart attack. He was 46, sitting in his recliner watching TV and he slumped over. I am 43 with three girls, ages 19, 16, and 13. I have been with my husband for 24 years. I don't know how to live without him. I cry constantly. I have to go back to work soon and am not sure how I will get through the day. Everything reminds me of him. I am lonely, and want to hear his voice and see him. How will I get through each day without wanting to continuously break down and cry?
I'm so very sorry Kemellii that you have joined this group of "widows" at such a young age. I remember when I went back to work and how hard it was to face everyone and do my work. There is no quick fix for your broken heart but it does help to share with others that understand your pain. See if there are some grief groups in your area. Also, I would suggest that you go to Facebook and search for "The Sisterhood for Widows - Closed Group for Widows" and request to join. Please answer the three security question. It is a powerful group of supportive widows and you can share your days with them. Take care, Mary Francis
This is so hard. I lost my husband of 47 years Dec 20, 2018. We were together since high school. Just bought a retirement home in Florida, spent 3 weeks there in September getting the place ready having a wonderful time. In Mid October he was diagnosed with cancer and passed away 2 months later. I am in a fog.
I, too, am asking the same question......how do I do this. I lost my husband of 35 years on January 3 — 2 days before my 60th birthday. My husband was diagnosed with cancer in early September and lost his battle in early January. I keep reading that time heals, and maybe it will, but I still miss him.
My husband had a severe adverse reaction to a prescribed medication that went undiagnosed for years. He was hospitalized for respiratory failure multiple times before his symptoms were finally associated with this particular medication. But by then the damage was done, and he spent his final years wasting away while fighting to breathe. His death at home on Sunday morning, June 10, 2018, shattered me completely - heart, mind, soul. 43 years of memories with this man and now he’s no longer here to share them with me. Life will never be as good without him.
