It does get better

by Jen

Hi all,

I have written before and get great strength from this site. I am nearing two years into my journey and slowly but surely I am getting thro. It has been an impossible nightmare since my husband died a very painful death at the age of 41, leaving myself and two young children.

Time has made me stronger, anger is less and bitterness too, Must admit tho I'm really lonely missing having someone around in everyday life, that thing we possibly all took for granted.

I hope each of you all reach a stronger place, this all has no time limit but I'm beginning to believe it may be possible.

Love to you all.


PS Hope Holt, i must saying after reading your journey thro this site I see a much stronger person emerging...... Keep it going.x JS

It does get better
by: jules

Thanks for your encouraging words, my wish is that it does get better with time, though I think I will miss John for the rest of my life.

It is my birthday in a couple of weeks, and I know that I will miss him incredibly that day - I wish he was here to give me the card that said "with warmest wishes" just because he knew I liked daffodils, and that was what was on the front, he never read the words - we laughed over that one - wish I still had it now.
This site is a lifesaver to me, who else could I talk to at 3am - and know that someone is out there reading my words.
I will look for rainbows.

Thank you for sharing your feats of strength. It is by no means a small feat of courage and determination. I am proud of you what you have been through and accomplished. It gives us all the will and courage to grow into what we are supposed to become in the new life thrown on us all.

I so wish you well as well as everyone trying to gain strength,courage and determination from this site.

Let there be light at the end of the tunnel, at least we will know that we are headed the right direction....

My best to you. The next rainbow is for you.
