My Best Friend and Soul Mate

by Maddi
(Stockton, CA, USA)

The love of my life, soulmate, lover, husband, and best friend finally succumbed to the rare Lymphoma last December. I am devistated. The loss is still great, but I feel that I am somewhat coming out of the "fog" that I have been in since his death. It is hard, since we did not have children together and my step-children live in another city. We did everything together: work, travel, laugh, love, experience new "adventures". I only wish sometimes that he had not had to go on this last "adventure" without me, but I understand why he had to leave me. Today is his birthday and I miss him terribly. I know that this pain will lessen over time, but it is so hard to cope sometimes.

YES! Maddi it is hard to live with the painfull grief and loss of a husband. I am sorry for your loss of your soulmate and husband. You also have a loss inasmuch as you didn't have children and you are not able to be with your stepchildren. this also is a loss. I lost my husband of 44yrs. to cancer 13 weeks today. IT HURTS SO BAD. Days you won't understand why you feel so bad and cry all the time. This is a painfull journey. A hard place to be for a very long time. I can't bear the EMPTINESS. I hope that you are well supported in your grief and that life gives you a break and a little sugar to help you in life.
