Sometimes I'm so angry with him

Hi All
I’m having a bit of a bad couple of weeks, approaching our wedding anniversary this coming Sunday and my 50th. This will be my second anniversary without him. On Saturday I had to put some bits in the loft and the ladder slipped, I wasn’t really hurt just some swelling and bruising above my eye but I was so angry, furious with him for not being here. The loft was his job and now it’s all on me. I immediately felt guilty for feeling angry as it wasn’t his choice to leave, but I think the burden and worry of life is just sometimes so overwhelming. Am I bad person I feel so awful for being angry with him.


Hello @Lilyboost

You are not a bad person, you are only human and you are grieving…try not to beat yourself up.

I’ve have felt angry/frustrated with my husband on occasion who passed nearly 12 months ago, but then I realise it makes no difference so I have learned to let it go.

It’s our wedding anniversary this month too. He passed last year, 2 days before our 21st anniversary.

It’s all so rubbish, be kind to yourself, you have enough to contend with…you are not a bad person. I hope your bumps & bruises are on the mend.

Take care…& go careful. x


Definitely not.
I plod on till “man jobs” crop up then I feel the same as you - angry & sorry for myself.
Then I ask myself ( & swear) what would hubby have done - I do try to be independent but sometimes I need help.

Take care on those ladders!

Hi Lilyboost
Your not a bad person. I have had many a strong word with my husband for leaving me to sort everything. There was so much to sort through that I gave him a good telling off even in those first weeks.


Thank you all, I’m glad to know I’m not alone, sometimes you feel like you’re going a little crazy with the things that go round your brain. I have bought a new ladder to hopefully prevent that happening again, but I know there is no one but me to do these jobs now so I have to. I miss my hubby so much xx

You’re not crazy…just coping. No one understands how much missing someone hurts until you experience your partner’s passing. Anger, resentment, loneliness are all part of it…and im only 3 weeks into it. Stay strong and reach out to the community as often as feels right. We’re in this together.
