I’m really struggling with the loss of my husband who sadly passed away on 30/11/22 from a stroke. I’m so missing him and feel so lost without him. I lost my mother 4 years ago and was still grieving for her when my husband passed away. Why is life is so unfair? . I don’t how I’m going to get through my summer without him. We were married for 37 years and I was away from him once. I’m having counselling and therapy but feel like this is not helping me.
When I lost my husband in June suddenly from a massage heart attack I never thought I would cope. I have been married to him 39 yrs and known him since I was 14.
He was my rock and best friend but part of me knows he will always be with me, l know that might sound silly but we were so close l always think what would Geoff do or say and it helps me cope xxxxx
Sorry, I’ve only just seen your post.
Losing your husband fairly soon after your mother must be incredibly hard. It was many years ago that I lost my Dad so had more time to get used to it. I adored him and thought that was as bad as grief got but losing my husband was a whole new level of pain.
It is nearly a year now and the grief is less debilitating and all consuming and I do have a life now. It’s extremely busy as Richard worked so hard so I have a lot of extra things to try and learn how to do. I’m not brave enough to do what my daughter wants to do though and learn to use a chainsaw to deal with fallen trees and branches on his farmland.
Keeping busy has been the thing which has saved me I think. I could do with life being a bit less busy to be truthful but still better than having no purpose.
I hope the counselling will help.
