First anniversary

A year ago tomorrow my partner of 35yrs died of cancer. For the past year I seemed to have just muddled through life putting on a brave face and telling everyone I’m ok but I miss my partner so much. We were very close. I just wish he was with me again and I don’t know how I will get through tomorrow.

I’m so sorry to hear that you have lost your partner. I hope that you are getting through today as well as can be expected. You don’t always have to put on a brave face - bottling up feelings can make grief worse, and it can help to open up and share how you are really feeling. That could be with friends and family, or by writing things down here on the site.

You aren’t alone here. While you wait for more replies to your post, you might find it helpful to read and maybe reply to some of the other recent conversations in the Losing a Partner section of the site:
