My Life

I am not a person who talks easily to other people I was the introvert-my husband the extrovert- now he is gone and there is no one- the loneliness is so overwhelming. My friends, my family, the kids all go on to their own lives and I am here all alone. They ask if I want them to move in but they don't understand that it won't stop the loneliness. I lost the only person I could really talk to. How do you go on. My whole life is gone. Now I have to start a new one. How do you do that. I am not sure I even want to. I miss him so much.

I am not sure how to get over the loneliness. All I can say to you is that we are all feeling so alone. Bruce was the introvert he also had a mild form of compulsive obsessive disease so we never had many friends and the ones we did have have disappeared. All I can say to you is come here often we will always listen

Fake it

I read here "Fake it till you make it". I force confidence that I do not feel. I am shy on the inside, almost quivering with trepidation. But I do not want that to rule who I am. So I fake it till I make it. Good Luck and please come here often...

I know-there is no one to give you that reassuring hug-that smile from across the room-that time to just sit and talk-alone has such a new meaning for me. And the word forever is more than I can take.

How Do We Grieve?
by: Pat

I'm exactly where you are. It's been just 5 weeks for me. My two young adult children have young families, none of my friends have lost their spouses.

I pray daily for the strength to handle this grief and empty feeling. I could tell my husband anything ~ he loved me unconditionally. With everyone else in my life I feel like I have to be and act a certain way to meet with their approval. With him I could be myself. That's why I fell in love with him.

I wish I had the answers of how we are to handle this. The best relief I've found is to come here often and write your feelings. I'm starting a grief support group next week. I hope that helps to be able to share my feelings with others who are going through the same.

God's blessings to all of us who are grieving.
