My dear Mike

by June

I lost my loving husband 6 months ago. I miss him more each day. We were married for 41 1/2 yrs. It is very hard to go on but what else can you do? I keep busy, but like most of you the grief is so overwhelming that nothing is pleasurable anymore. I come to this site a couple times a week and it does seem to help. I know that it is different for everyone, but in some ways the same. Even with supportive family, friends, etc, it is still so hard and you feel so alone. I am not looking forward to the holidays without him.
Take care everyone and I guess this is what life is all about...sometimes so unfair. I really like (even though I cry) the song by Paul Brandt "Together Again", and hoping Mike and I will be together again.

ow I relate when people say they can't go on. It is the most hurtful thing I have ever gone though. I tell my sons I know what it is to have your heart ripped into.
We just had our 50th wedding Ann I pray for all who have lost a spouse and I pray for myself.
Things can only go up from here

Thank you Doreen for your wise comments. So very sorry about your Steve. This is very hard to take, but one day at a time is all we can do.

June I am sorry for your loss of your husband Mike. I lost my husband Steve to cancer 4 1/2 months ago. We were married for 44yrs. You can't get used to living with someone as man and wife for this long that we have done and think we can get over this suddenly. It is such a shock to the system. We have so many changes to make. We are doing everything ALONE. Eating, sleeping, shopping, visiting family, working together, etc. ALL ALONE. You are right. WE HAVE NO CHOICE. It is another chapter in our lives. The older we get it is not something we like to have to live another different type of life with changes we don't like much. It is also more difficult having to depend on others to help us with the man type of jobs around the home. Life is overwhelming now and all the pleasure we feel has gone with our loved one. No matter how we go on in life things will never be the same again. THAT LOSS is the WORST we will ever experience. That contentment and security we felt is gone forever. Our husband's would feel the same feelings if it was us who died first. The Grief is the same experience. There is a VOID that will never be filled with anything. God created this companionship. God knows how it will be for us. What God has JOINED let no man cut asunder. DEATH cut us asunder. Only God can HEAL this WOUND.
