I just can’t get out of bed today. My partner died on the 9th Dec. The sadness comes and goes but I just don’t want to do anything.


Poor you. It’s so hard, isn’t it? What you are feeling is common to all of us on here, I think. You have had a shock, your world has tumbled down around you and everything feels alien and unreal.
This will pass, I promise. You will always be sad, of course you will, but you will manage to carve out a new life in tribute to your husband.
We wee married for 54 years and I adored him. When he died, I felt just like you, and occasionally I still do. I would give my right arm to have him back.
Hang in there. Your life has changed but you must live it for him now. I am pretty sure that’s what he would have wanted if he was anything like my husband.


My thoughts are with you

Thank you. It’s so hard and seems to be getting worse not better. I go from feeling I am going to be ok and then it just hits me again that he is gone. I miss him so much he was everything to me. He died after a 4mth battle with Cancer. We did have some time to talk it through and say bye etc but I was not prepared for how much I would miss him. I have just wrote a list for tomorrow with the first thing on it is to get up!!


Baby steps, take each day slowly have your list of things to do and do one thing on it each day or week. Im on month 6 and it has helped. Take care we are here to help each other.
