Loss of my wife

I lost my wife sue 5 weeks ago which as I’m writing I still can not believe Sue was the love of my life & I feel totally lost without her she was my life, so I can relate to the posts on here.
My wife suffered a short illness so it came as such a shock also as she was very fit walking / running most days we were luckier than some as we spent last 5 years in Spain :es: as we retired early something Sue convinced me to do which I’m so pleased we did have that time but very sad we can not now fulfill our dreams & plans


Hi @Ianangel381 so sorry for your loss. It’s over two years since my husband died, I still find it hard each day , this site has been a lifeline for me , you can just say how you feel , and say stuff you can’t or don’t want too with family , Im sure you will get a lot of support , xtake carex


Hi. I lost my beautiful wife 4 weeks ago suddenly, one minute she was here, the next she was gone. The pain I am feeling is suffocating and I honestly don’t know if I can carry on. She was the love of my life and the thought of never speaking to her, touching her, being with her is tearing me apart. We have 2 children and I know I need to be there for them but I just want the pain to stop. If I hear one more person say “time is a great healer” I’ll scream, I can’t see past the next hour let alone what tomorrow will bring. We had plans for our future which will never be fulfilled and it feels so cruel. I haven’t slept properly since she passed away and when I do I dream about her and we’re together but when I wake up I’m back to square one. It’s exhausting.


I’m so sorry for your loss. I’m 5 months in and I wish I could say it’s easier. Sadly, all of us on here know how brutally painful it is. Maybe try to be kind to yourself, what you’re going through is a pain beyond description. I wish you peace.
