My husband Carl

by Laura
(North Carolina)

On July 9, 2012 I lost my husband of 36 years to Cancer. We fought the battle for 7 years but as always cancer won. I am just empty and alone and miss his voice and touch so very much!! I promised him I would be okay without him because he needed to hear that but I am not okay and wonder will I ever be normal again. I pray he knows how hard I am trying to keep it all together. Everyone says, you are a strong woman you will be okay but he was my strength, my rock, my everything and now he is gone so how can I possibley be okay? Grieving is like a rollercoaster from Hell that never ends. I am taking it "one day at a time" and I pray to make it through each day with sanity.

sorry for loss of Carl
by: carroll - Texas

Laura...I lost Tony 5 mo ago today...your words are exactly my same feelings...I do not know how we will go on...we do the best we can and try to focus on the living and honor them with our living too. When I leave work..I say oh crap...now I go home to my empty of Tony home. It is like the air out of a baloon. I pray the Serenity prayer and focus on living each day and enjoying each moment. Focus on the WONDERFUL memories of Carl and smile that we had the love of our lives...albeit only a short while. Easy to say...so hard to live. You are not alone. Come here and write if it helps at all. Take care.

Laura, I am sorry for your loss of your husband Carl to cancer. I lost my husband of 44yrs. to cancer 4 months ago. I know exactly how you feel. You will feel that you cannot go on anymore even one day at a time is such a struggle.
My husband Steve fought for 3yrs.39days. I was his caregiver from lung cancer caused by working with asbestos. Steve had no chance with an incurable, inoperable, aggressive cancer. I had to watch Steve die slowly. I felt so helpless not being able to help him. You must have faced the same battles with living with cancer. The lonliness, emptiness, and sorrow is hard to bear. To be married for so long and then be plunged into this type of despair is not going to be easy. Missing all the daily interaction, is so very hard to bear. Our lives have been altered forever. How do we go on to make changes to the way we live? It is not helpful for anyone to say to us that we are strong and we will get through this. We will have moments of weakness and we must just greive as we need to. It is not a weakness to cry or show that we are human.
