Brick wall

I’m lying in my bed crying people tell me I’m being strong but I feel my life has stopped. I’m 51 James would of been 50 and I feel cheated. You assume that you will grow old together I have my 2 boys but I feel very lonely. The things we did as a couple and our plans have gone.

Hi Christine,

I understand all of this xxx Thinking of you x

Christine…
…yes doesn’t this get our back up, people telling us " we are being strong…" or " we are a strong person…"
I too have been told this, i may come over as strong on the outside but i am as weak as the next one, as i tell them i have not had one day without crying or going to pieces, and it has just turned the nine months from the day I found my Richard dead, and like you he - we would be celebrating his 75th birthday in three days time…

We put on this mask when we are crumbling inside. People stop asking how we are thinking we are over it which is hurtful and makes me angry.
