I lost my 2nd wife only recently 29th November. 2022
We’ve been together just over 9yrs. Married 5yrs.
I lost my first Wife of 57yrs Married and 60+ years together on the 17th Dec. 2011.
To find life repeating itself is hard and now I feel so lonely and lost.
I can’t say much more at this time.
Thanks for letting me express my grief.

Life is so empty.
Evrey day seems endless.


I feel the same my life is not the same any more and as you say the days seem endless and the pain goes on when will it ever end can not cope with the way i feel

As the days go by things seem to get easier but the ache is forever with me lonliness in the evenings it’s so hard to cope with, waking up in the night suddenly and your alone when you felt as if you were together.
