Does it ever stop being crazy?

Hi so sorry on losing your husband I lost mine suddenly last year he was 46,I thought I was the only one to feel the same, I’m always expecting to find him sitting on the sofa or just walking through the door it’s so horrible when the realisation hits you again and again that he’s never coming back I’m the same I have his ashes sitting on my shelf where I can see them



Sorry to hear of your loss. No words really describe the pain we all feel. For your son it must be totally devastating and so hard for him to understand.
I’m so glad you have joined this group purely because the support here is amazing. Just knowing you are not on your own really seems to help.
As you support your son, hopefully you will find you can lean on us .

Keep posting, it helps!!
Sending you a hug

Thankyou it’s nice to know I’m not on my own


It was 11 weeks today my husband passed away. A senseless death he died after hitting his head after suffering a seizure in hospital. The autopsy has come back saying he drank 1.5 litres of whisky a day. He never drank whisky in his life he hated spirits he did drink wine so I think they got it wrong.
The report made me furious. Another part of the catalog of errors that happened to him after being admitted to hospital.

The senseless death robbed me of my best friend. The pain is still unbearable. I don’t know how I get up in the morning. I feel so sad every day… When I go out alone to a restaurant or cafe people ask do I only want a table for one? Which of course I do I am then either invisible or ignored by everyone. The loneliness is never ending. When I am asked why I am alone? And I explain I hate the pity. I often feel I died 11 weeks ago too.


Karen, what an awful experience that must have been for you, my wife was diagnosed with cancer, they told us it was terminal but they offered treatment which may have given her more time, after having chemotherapy, radio, and immunotherapy treatment, she was always really ill after it, i often felt it was experimental on the doctors part, she was in and out of the hospital with infections and other complications and on one occasion in hospital she developed sepsis, on another she contracted covid while in an open ward, it was an absolute nightmare for us both, her treament was put on hold many times which really upset her because she felt she was being robbed of her life, i can’t fault the palliative care team her cared for her when she was dying they were amazing but i can’t say the same for the oncologist and the doctors who i feel let her down badly, it hurts me so much to think of her mental state as well as the pain she was in and can’t help feeling angry and let down.
