In November my whole world changed… It was so quick no warning signs… My husband who was only 54 had flu symptoms… Called the ambulance early hrs on the 9th November… No visitors at the time so was video chatting and speaking on the phone… Then the dreaded results covid… I was ill so tired not well myself got a call on the 11th they would let me see him as they didn’t think he was going to make it… I rushed to the hospital just in time and then he was gone in less than 48hrs…crazy I was in shock ill myself… 13th Nov I was rushed to hospital yes I too had covid… Grieving and fighting for my own life… I don’t remember the 10 days… gone… I made it… Relief sadness loss desperation… My family couldn’t see me they were great sorted everything to do with my husband. Its been a hard six months and still I cry every day. We were in lockdown when his funeral came around we had to do it virtually… Heartbreaking… .ive only just sorted his things… I don’t know how to move forward don’t know if I want to move forward… I have no motivation to do anything…I know I’m not the only person who has had to endure the dreaded covid taking a loved one thousands we’re lost to it… I’ve read lots of your comments which have given me the strength to write this…
It’s like another world isn’t it? It can’t possibly be real - or that’s what our minds tell us. It wasn’t COVID for my husband - he just collapsed and died whilst running, we still don’t know why. One ordinary day my life was happy, now it’s empty and always will be. I’m so sorry for your loss - it won’t go away but people on here do understand. Sending hugs
