Oh Barb I am so very sorry and sad for you.
I understand your dispare totally, life without our darling husbands just hurts so much,
You are obviously a night owl like me, sleep doesn’t come easy now does it.
Some nights I can’t go to bed at all, I get flashbacks and panics.
I wish I had some words of comfort for you and could give you a hug
Take care
Christine xx

Oh my goodness poor Alan, just too much pain for him so very very sad

Hi Alan
I’m so sorry for your loss, it is at the same time unbearably painful and numbing, I swing from one to the other.
I met my husband in primary school and we first dated at 14 then again at 17 and were together for 31 short years, I lost him last month, no illness, just gone sudden in the early hours of the morning. I feel lost bobbing in a giant ocean and the only thing that keeps me going is my children. I live one day at a time, and that is enough for me. This forum has been a lifeline though , hearing that those wild thoughts and feelings are not mine alone.
Sending love x

So terribly terribly sad. Nobody should experience such pain. May he find comfort with his family members and wife.

Lost for words really as no words appear to be enough. :broken_heart:

That sounds so similar to me. We went to primary school together, dated properly from the age of 16. Together for 34 years. He went out for a run, collapsed and died before I could get to him. No warning. My happy life changed to an existence. Sending hugs


So sorry :cry::cry::cry:

Oh no - I hadn’t realised. He was coping with so much. It’s so cruel.
