I Am So Glad

(Perth Australia)

I am so glad I have found this site. My husband, John, has been gone nearly ten weeks. I have gone through so many things and emotions during this time that I thought I was going crazy. This site has made me see that I am normal and just going through the grieving process. It is very hard to tell your family and friends of all the feelings that are happening because they just don't understand. I come on this site at all times because it makes me feel better knowing that other people are out there who are experiencing the same as I am and unfortunately we have had to lose the great love of our lives to know this. The support and advice given by others is amazing and it feels like there is always someone there to comfort you. I am so glad!!!!!!

I am very sorry for your loss Judith. It takes time to get through the grieving process but you will. There will be many different emotions along the way and sometimes you will feel worse then other times. Remember that God will always be with you and never leave you nor forsake you.
We are always here for you too, any time you need to talk. We care for you and we understand.
Take each day at a time and take care of yourself.
My husband passed away on Nov 22nt 2009 and I still miss him. I am doing much better but the holidays make it difficult.I can look back on 2 years of actually wondering if I could get through it but I am. It is hard to cook a meal for one and come home to an empty house. My husband adored the grandchildren and missed out on the seeing the little great granddaughter.I stay busy with 2 jobs and fixing up the house. I pray a lot too. Keep posting. It sure helps to have others to talk to. God bless you.

I lost my wife amanda king-jefferies october 29 2011
by: Julius

Im really thankful to have found this site today. I've been struggling with how my friends have responded to the passing of my wife whom died from organ failure and stage four cancer October 29 2011. My friends save a few either have gone silent or say things that are hurtful and inappropriate. The most common thing i hear is that your young and can move on and live a new life. Others do not understand my need and motivation to honor my wife and continue her legacy of cancer awareness support and mission work helping others. Its also something my wife asked me if i could continue during our last days together at hospital. I am a mental health counselor myself and have a masters in counseling and yet my knowledge i have makes it worse. I really have gained insight from this site especially the grief club. Thank you for having this site for people like myself who have lost and are grieving.

I am sorry for your lose.I am glad that you are getting help from this site.I stumbled upon it yesterday and I feel it is helping.Just knowing others are feeling what I am feeling definitely helps.Family and friends mean well but sometimes you just want to scream cos they aren't standing in your shoes.Reading peoples posts and identifying your pain in their words helps me.We are both at the start of the worst journey of our lifes but at least none of us are completely alone anymore.

I'm Glad Too!!
by: TrishJ

Judith~I think this site saved my life. I was in such a panic after my husband's death. I've always felt I will live a long life and to face 25 or 30 years without my husband brought on total panic attacks. I've had to learn to live my life one day at at time. I'm still waiting to have a happy day like I did before my husband passed but I've learned to be patient. I still miss him so much and it's been almost 13 months now.
Last Christmas I was in a state of shock. This year will be difficult but I actually feel him near me at times.
God bless. I hope you and your family have a wonderful holiday. We have to find strength in what remains behind (it's hard some days).

I am sorry for your loss and at only 10 weeks, you do feel like your going crazy. The first 6 months for me are a blur of emotions from anger, pain and sadness to a realization that I have to get through the other side of grief. The worst was that my friends and family didn't understand and after awhile, they didnt want to hear his name. People get tired and uncomfortable when you talk about your love. I was the one feeling raging pain within my heart. I have never experienced anything like that but as a survivor, I promise you will find comfort down the line. The anniversaries, birthdays, holidays and memories are all very rough.

The best advice I can offer you is to take your time going through the stages. Don't hold it in, let yourself express your grief and not avoid memories of John. After all, he is with you in spirit. Crying is like a cleansing, refreshing your soul and gives you an outlet. Write to him, talk to him and above all, hold onto your faith. There are reasons why we are left behind until we are called. Find your purpose in what you are left with and going through. You are never alone. I have been coming to this site for over a year and each time, I find comfort knowing others have been and are still where I am in grief. We will make it through and one day you will smile again. Keep writing and sending prayers your way. We are always here for you. Take care and know this takes time and patience.
