Still struggling to come to terms with loosing my wife, I hate being alone, it’s worse when I’m at home, I know it’s early days but I feel so lost.
I’m the same. 17th April she died in my arms. Keep expecting her to be home soon. They say you learn to cope better in time but I hate this new existence. People on here are very kind and do understand. it’s helping me and hopefully can help you.
So sorry for your loss. I also lost my partner in April. It still doesn’t feel real and I still sit by the door waiting for him to walk through….
Just have to take each day as it comes unfortunately and ride the waves of the horrific grief.
Have you reached out to your GP or any sort of counselling charities?
@JJ23 you’re in the right place for people knowing exactly how you feel.
The loneliness and missing them is the hardest part. The rawness of grief changes and the tears dry up but the reality of the loss gets more exposed.
I lost my partner unexpectedly in January and I function and even have good days but there are the other days where I let the grief in and consume me. Then I brush myself off and start again. Focusing on just today helps, tomorrow’s are not guaranteed.
I miss him though, every second of every day. That’s consistent.
Keep chatting on here.
Lost Caroline on the 18th April, thank you for your support
I haven’t as yet, find it difficult to talk about at the moment but I think I definitely will do
@JJ23 sorry for your loss. My husband passed away on 2nd April this year from prostate cancer. I would say I’m coping slightly better than I was in the early days. I too find the loneliness and the empty house the hardest. This forum has helped me lots. Always someone here when you need to chat. Take care.
Lost my wife of 48 years in January to a brain tumour…diagnosed in November …gone in January…so sorry you have had to join this awful club…this forum has been a great help
There seems tobe something about April. I lost my husband April 2019. And there are times when its still hard. Deepest sympathy on losing your loved ones.
I lost my husband 6/4/23 to prostrate cancer it’s the loneliness and quietness I miss him so much some days the tears are there all day. Today I’ve had the grandchildren but they just want to play on their games. I’m so lost my heart is broken. I can understand how people can die of a broken heart.
Thats exactly what i said … i can aee how people die of a broken heart. I lost my husband 6 months ago but i still finding doing things hard. Doing things by myself , feeling alone in the house - it takes some time to adjust to this strange new life dont be too hard on yourself … just keep being kind you to you ! You deserve it xxx
So so sorry for your loss
I lost my husband suddenly five weeks ago today after an accident at home.
The funeral was a few days ago but I still can’t process that he has gone.
It is the evenings and early mornings that I find are the worse.
Adjusting to being alone just seems a massive mountain to climb right now. I guess it’s still hour by hour.
