Thank You don’t know what i am doing at the moment coming up to 12 months i miss her so much I’m getting myself in a right state not sure how long i can be without her i see memories of her everywhere
I know how you feel @Bill2, it’s 36 weeks today since I lost my wonderful husband. I miss him more every day and life doesn’t get any easier.
Sounds as though you may need to speak to someone. Have you contacted you’re GP.?
Yes and all he said was don’t keep getting anxious there about as much good as an ashtray on a motorbike will have to sort myself out i think i have a very rare heart condition so have to be careful x
I am so glad I haven’t got your GP. So sympathetic. Since my bereavement in June I have spoken to 3 GP’s at my practice. They have all been sympathetic and done everything they could for me and fully explained why it wasn’t safe to prescribe me sleeping pills when I asked. I hope being in this site can help.
I know how you feel. Xx
It’s still early days Bill just try to take one day at a time think of all the lovely memories you have of her the day you met the day you married your first Christmas as husband and wife she’s with you always Bill she’s never left you she’s in your heart wherever you are shes with you x
Thank you to everyone who has replied i thought i would be stronger than this but after 44 years i find im mentally weak my wife always new that good or bad that i would sort it somehow but i think she would be disappointed with me now i would always protect her from anything and anyone im just rambling on now xxx to everyone
Please just ramble. We all do it. Xx
That’s exactly why we are here to help and support each other, I’m having good days and bad 9 months since my husband died some days I struggle and think what’s the point and I haven’t come up with an answer yet , I have two dogs so that helps me to get out the house for a walk and they are company at night but I must say the house feels empty like it’s to big for one person the warmth as gone out of it so you’re not alone Bill say whatever you want there’s always someone that knows exactly how you’re feeling x
Pudding I ve been reading your posts for while Given the shortage of therapy professionals I humbly suggest you become a counsellor yourself You offer a lot of positive input and insight on this site why not expand your remit and help more people Blessings
That is very flattering. This week haven’t been positive in myself. I haven’t got the emotional resilience. I think my background of years on a help desk just gives me the right mentality. Live and hugs. Sandra
You have said exactly what I and I guess many others going through this feel. Love hurts and I applaud you for being brave enough to show it.
Thank you Lin22 love yax
Hello Dave, your post resonated with me, because every word of it is true. It is the end of the world when you lose your life partner. It’s five years for me now, and I feel just as bad as day one. Like you I’ve met loads of people through volunteering and joining clubs. At the end of it all, I’m as lonely as it’s possible to be.
I tried the suicide bit in the middle of lockdown, unfortunately I woke up - my biggest regret.
All I do is put one foot in front of the other, and long for the end of this ‘life’
I do look in on this site often, but no one ever seems to feel like me, until I saw your post.
Sorry I can’t offer you any comfort, except to say you’re not alone in how you feel.
