I lost my husband 6 weeks ago leaving me and our 2 young daughters. We had been together nearly 13 years and married for 7. He died from liver disease related to alcohol and i cant seem to control how i feel. Im so sad and angry and confused. Why did you have to do it? Why werent we enough? And then the night time comes when the kids are asleep and all i feel is sadness and alone.
Oh I’m so sorry to hear this. Whilst it’s a different illness, my husband is 43 and has terminal cancer (not long left to live) I also have 2 young boys. I really feel for you.,
I totally understand why you would be feeling angry but you have to try and keep reminding yourself that alcoholism is still an illness. It wasn’t that you “weren’t enough”. Xxx
Im sorry to hear about your husband too. Its so sad when young children have to go through this. It doesnt seem fair.
I know and people keep telling me. Its just so hard knowing there was a time he had a choice. And i so just wished he could have stopped and he would still be here . Xxx
Sending you lots of love and support Nicki. Try not to think further than the next cup of tea. For you and a lot of people there are always a lot of unanswered questions but for now just getting through each day and caring for your daughters is more than enough for you. You will hopefully gain support from this site as many people understand what you are going through. Take it a day at a time and somehow you will find yourself getting through. X
It really is hard with children and I know it will be even harder for you to explain the reason he died. Have you heard of the group widowed and young? It may help you xx
Yes i have joined that group too. Telling my girls wasnt easy but they werent so suprised having had to live with it and watch him deteriorate. Which is just so sad … xx
Always here if you need to talk x
Thank you xx
