Lost my love to breast cancer almost eight years ago. Still struggling

by Chris

Silly breast firmness became a monster in a few hours. Metastatic mobile and deadly. In 13 months it tore my love from me and my children. Almost 8 years on we remain bemused and confused. Horrible unfair and confusing grief clouds our lives.

Affronted by the violence that ripped her from our hearts and our world.

It's still hard to move on and engage with such a cruel world that could exert such pain.

Does anyone else still sob after such a long time?

The Years Go By.......And Still We Miss Them
by: TrishJ

I'm having such a hard time moving on after my husband's death 16 months ago. The problem is I don't like anything about my life without him. I don't want a new life. I want my old life back. I know that's not healthy but I don't have any desire right now to venture out and try new things. I still haven't gone back to work though I know I should. I don't have to financially but I know it would be good for me.
I think it will always be a struggle. We will always love our lost soul mates. I don't want to compare my husband to another man. I don't think it would be fair. I had the best. Our marriage wasn't perfect but he was perfect for me.
Hang in there. I'm hoping you find some happiness in your day. God bless.

2 years for me

I still sob, I still want, what can never be. But as each day comes I try to gather strength, be who I was all along. All the things inside that made him fall in Love with me to begin with. It is not easy and in times of weakness I come here. Because here I am not so alone.

How Long till it does not hurt? Love is eternal and in grief it still hangs. In front of us is our past crying out how unfair it all is. Find out who you are inside and let the wonderful out.

We can weep we can want but in the end we were meant to life this life to our fullest. And in the weak moments come here...We will always listen and always be here...
