Loss of my husband


Finding it very hard lost my husband last June weekend s are the worst no children so very much on my own except for 6 month old puppy which has really helped me she keeps me busy

I have just my husband after 51yrs together and my heart is hurting and can’t stop crying I really feel I can’t go on without him

Hi Julie I am so sorry for your loss. I also was married 51 years and lost him just over 2 years ago, It is so hard this journey of grief. The more you grieve the more you loved him, We used to say that when one of us passed that we will still love each other. I think I love him even more as they say absence makes the heart grow fonder. You learn to live beside the grief, I hope you have a family or friends to support you. We have a wonderful family and I don"t know what I would do without them, But of course they are grieving too but this forum has been so much help and knowing that we are not alone really helps, Love and hugs to you. xx Carol. xx

Thank you for your reply, I have 2children and 5 grandchildren, I must remember that they are grieving also but I don’t think it’s the same grief as you feel for your life partner.

My husband of 52 years died of a stroke 4 weeks ago. He was always so full of life. His death was a terrible shock. I don't know how I will be able to live without him . I'm so sorry that you are suffering too. It may sound naive but I never had any idea of the despair and intensity of the pain

My husband died in December and I can’t even begin to describe how dreadful the loneliness is and how much I miss him. I go out and try to socialise. Today I was with friends and someone said how well I am coping and how brave I am. I must be acting well because at home I just cry all the time. I feel a complete wreck. How long until I get used to being without him. We have been together for almost 53 years and now my life is empty, despite a very supportive and loving family.

Hi to everyone who is grieving, I have spent 5days away with my son and family in Sheringham.but the whole time I was so sad just thinking of Andy the whole time. I had a 5hr journey back on the train, of which Iwas crying all the way, must have thought I was a mad women. I am now at home been here for 4hrs and I have done nothing but sob. It's been 7wks tomorrow and I feel worse.

Dearest julie29 Like you my husband of 52 years died 30.9.19 and I still hurt although family and friends think I am doing well. The problem is everything is back to normal but your life like mine will never be normal again. So we have to try and make a differant life for ourselves and just take one day at a time. I found walking helps and keeping in touch on this site. Lots of Hugs Queenie

Hi very sorry that you like me are in such a pain. My darling left 21.11.18 just over 3 months. After a very short illness. We didnt have time to react, think or even discussed the scaring news of cancer. what a shock i have just arrived from holidays. Complete Life changing. Nothing will be normal. Not the normality we knew.
We need to try and build a new life which i find very difficult. My life was my beautiful husband of 30 years.
Sending a big hug to share the though tbst you are not alone in this journey. X

Hi, I know how you feel I lost my husband 10wks ago through sepsis,all I do all day is look at the window in a trance I still can’t believe I will never see him again. I met him when I was 15yrs old and saw him every day until he went, oh so sad. Big hugs to you too.
