me when we married 38yrs ago

My husband and I were married 38 yrs. I was 18yrs old and he was 23 when we married . We grew up together. He had copd but pushed himself to work even though Dr. told him not to. He loved to work. He passed away Nov.15 2011. We have 3 children that lived lost our first 2 at birth. We went through alot together. I feel so lost without him. Wished there was some kind of cure for a broken heart. Everytime I take two steps forward seems to me I fall back more Thanks for this site.

into the void of loneliness and despair
by: Hope

The early journey of grief is for the most part is 1 steps forward and 3 steps back. I think that we like to think that if we keep pushing on, keeping busy that we can beat grief.

In truth grief takes us where it wants us to go. We have no control over the long road that grief takes us. Just as we think we are getting better down we go to a dark and desperate place the recent past of dark and horrible memories.

crud, I just erased a paragraph accidentally. I am sure it might have helped you down this horrible road of grief.

2 hrs later allow me to finish my thought...

In the end eventually you will be able to smile a genuine much deserved smile. You will be able to open your eyes and really see the beauty around you. For now hold on to those little sprigs of joy that come your way. They are so hard to see or enjoy at first. We feel as if we have been dropped into a void of nothingness. Feeling only pain and despair. That is why keeping your eyes open to view the little things, the tiny miracles all around us is so very important.

As always one breath one step one day at a time.

lost

Donice I am sorry for your loss of your husband. There is no cure for a broken heart. If you have God in your life he promised to heal the brokenhearted. It is a process. It takes time. We will never be the same again. I too feel all ALONE. I was married 44yrs. I lost my husband 3 months ago to a deadly cancer. It is early days but I can't look too far ahead othewise this grief would swallow me up. I take one day at a time and face the new challenges for that day. WE ARE LOST without our MATE. It is a very cruel place to be. I wish you better days ahead surrounded by loving supportive people.
