Loss of wife

Lost my beautiful wife of 28yrs from pancreatic cancer 5 months go. She leaves behind 4 kids and 4 grandchildren. I miss her everday i feel lost and just seems like i am going through the motions


So sorry you’re in this club nobody wants to be in…use this forum…it’s been a great support to me and many others :heart:


Thank you. I hope it helps some

Please accept my condolences. My wife died in November last year, sometimes it seems like yesterday and sometimes it seems awhile ago. We had been together since 1970. Like you I’ve got grown up children and grandchildren who are a significant help but its not the same thing is it?

Sorry, I’ve mistakenly sent off a half a completed message. I was going to say that I’ve found help in looking for local groups of people in similar situations which has helped. In addition I’ve joined a computer skills group which I’m hoping will also help and stop me sending off half completed emails. I think one of the ways forward is to accept help (offers of meals etc,) whether you need them or not - if you keep turning down help, the offers stop coming in.

I hope that this has been helpful. Keep in touch.
Kind regards

Thanks Mike for the response. I try to spend as much time with the grandkids and kids. But it isnt the same. I feel lost and feels like i am walking in a fog most days. I dont feel like myself
