Shared thoughts and feelings

Hi all,
All of us on this forum share the same thoughts and feelings whether it’s the loss of a partner, child, parent , sibling or friend.
When I lost my husband six months ago, I felt I was the only one in the world, the world around me and everyone in it was still happily carrying on and my world had just fallen apart.
I’ve never felt so much pain like it, felt so alone.
I remember in the first few weeks thinking I wish I knew someone who is in the same situation and understands my thoughts and feelings as everyone around me just didn’t get it, I felt hopeless and lost.
But finding this forum has saved me, to be able to talk and share thoughts and feelings with people that know exactly how I feel, feels like a weight has been lifted.
I’ve made some lovely friends and by reading other posts I can see others have too, to be able to connect with others with the same loss and experiences is such a comfort.
I just like to say to everyone stay strong, we’re all here for each other, you’re not alone.
Love to all
Steph xx

Hi Steph. So sorry for your loss. I lost my darling wife to breast cancer just 21 days after diagnosis on the 6th November 2019. It will be 7 months a day after our wedding anniversary on the 5th June. This year would have been 49 years. Life seems to be getting no better. Just me. Wife’s family have just dropped me. Days just seem empty. My wife’s condition was diagnosed just after I had finished Radiotherapy for prostate cancer. Just miss Penny :heart: so much. Hope you are coping. This lockdown don’t help. xx

Hi Freddie,
I’m so sorry for your loss aswell. I lost Tim on the 4th November 2019 so the same sort of time as you.
49 years, full of so many happy memories.
It’ll be 31 years married this year for me and where has the time gone, in a blink of an eye it’s all over .
You’ve been through so much what with your health aswell, I don’t know how we all cope, but somehow we get through each day .
Stay strong

Hi Steph
Just read your post and I know exactly how you feel as it is now fourteen months since I lost my husband to cancer. He only got five weeks after his diagnosis and past away in March 2019. He was a very fit guy and it was such a shock facing his cancer battle. I really miss him every day and life will never be the same without him. We were married for 47 years and I look back at the happy memories but still miss him so much. Thinking of you and others in the same position.
Take care of yourself.
