My Chuckie

On Thanksgiving of last year I lost my best friend, the love of my life, my pal, my loving Husband. He came to me and said he was having trouble breathing and for me to call 911. When they came I asked if he wanted me to ride with him. He stated NO, finish baking the pies. I decided not to and followed them to the hospital.

Well it was too late his lungs had collasped and he was brain dead. It took two days for God to take him and I never got to tell him goodbye or how much I love him.

It has been over 6 months now and I can't pull myself back together. I have a great support group in neighbors, friends and church, but when it comes to being home alone it hurts. I cry everyday, can not get myself up to do anything. Our four dogs, He called them "our boys" help a lot; if it was not for them I don't even think I would get out of bed.

I'm lost too
by: Karen

I'm so sorry to read about your loss. I have just lost my best friend, the love of my life. This week we placed his ashes on the beach. I can't get past the loss I am feeling and I am hoping to find comfort and hope that I'll get past this. I'm sorry for your loss and unfortunately I understand it. I wish anyone could say the right words to take it all away. I'm truly sorry that you are hurting too.

Lost Love
by: Brenda Mack

I know what you mean Susie on May 21, 2010 I lost my best friend. My 27 year old son Cody Lee Cole. I feel numb, I do not want to go any where or do any thing. I have to force myself to make every move. He was such a big part of my life and now I have this big void that I do not know what to do with.

I have never lost a husband so I do not know what that is like. My husband takes such good care of me and spoils me so that I could not even dream of living without him.

I wish I had words of wisdom to give you but all I can say is I feel for you and am just a keyboard away if you need to pour out your heart. Brenda

I know...
by: Hope

Its been 6 months for me too and the days get a little easier but he is but a memory away and the tears start. I have been working outside doing his job(s) and at first I just cried behind the lawn mower, now I take the frustration and turn to physical anything. Yard work, busy work, I work my regular job and come home and work the house. I'm not avoiding grief, just channeling it. I wish you well and hope your journey through the difficult grief process gets easier.....HH
