left heartbroken and alone

My life has been turned upside down in a heartbeat, i don’t know how to carry on with life, my partner died of covid in january, i am 60 year’s old and feel like what happen’s now and how is life going to be without him …

I’m so so very sorry for your loss. You will be feeling heartbroken and so so very hurt.

Last week my husband who was 60 passed too. He was due to come home yesterday to start new treatment for a cancer which he was only diagnosed oy on 1st Feb massive shock. He got covid on the ward tested positive last Friday and passed on Saturday morning I had 1 hour to spend with him.

The emotions you are feeling are horrendous but it’s so very early it really is a second, minute, hour and day at a time.

This site is really helping me it’s been only a week and I miss my husband so so very much.

Big hug coming your way xxx

So sorry for your loss so hard and painful
My husband passed December the 5th with covid

Take care x

I am sorry for your great loss and the heartache you are going through. I lost my partner on 31st January due to catching Covid in hospital. For me the days and nights are just getting worse with disbelief that he has gone, and the non stop crying.
A little quote was sent to me which I hope will be of some confort in days/weeks/years ahead.

I am with you still - I do not sleep
Iam a thousand winds that blow
I am the diamond glints on snow
I am the sunlight on ripened grain
I am the gentle Autumn rain
When you awaken in the morning hush
I am the swift, uplifting rush of quiet birds in circled flight
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not think of me as gone - I am with you still in each new dawn.

My thoughts are with you.

I too lost my partner in January to visit covid he was 59.
7 weeks on and the pain is getting worse.
I keep thinking, he will be hone soon and then it hits me, I will never see him in this life again.
The house feels so empty without him

We hope and pray for the pain to ease, but it hasn’t and doesn’t seem like it ever will. Every day just gets worse. It’s only early days for us, but when you read some of the messages on here where loved ones have been taken from them maybe one or two years ago, the pain and heartaches are still there.
I still can’t believe that I’m never going to see him again. I want to wake up and fnd it was all a dream. They got it wrong, he’s still here.
I’m only just geting used to the fact that he has died and I’ll never be able to hear his voice again, never see his smile, never be able to listen to his jokes, see him dancing around the room and being a clown. He was always happy and so full of life. Love everything single thing about him and need him here with me. Here come the tears again.

Please take care.

Take care.

Your words echo how I’m feeling.
I’m having a bad day today and just want to talk to him.
It helps knowing someone understands exactly what your going through.
It’s tiny steps day by day.


“Grief never ends, but it changes.
It’s a passage, not a place to stay.
Grief is not a sign of weakness, nor a lack of faith.
It is the price of love.”



This is one of my favourite sayings since i embarked on this lonely journey we are all on.
Almost 6 months into it, the flat still seens so empty without him although i feel he’s around me all the time.
Not sure i will ever “get over” losing my soulmate but i’m not sure how these days come & go but they do and some days are much harder than others so if the tears fall i let them - this is the price of love to me.
Sending love & hugs
