I lost my beloved husband of 33 years on January 10, 2011. I miss him so much! I am so thankful that I have a wonderful job to go through but the weekends are so lonely. My sister doesn't want to have anything to do with me and who we thought were are best friends told me to get over it! I am so hurt. I am going to go to grief therapy because I know that I can get through this. With my job, I have such wonderful support and my husband's family has been wonderful. Why can't my sister be kind? She has hurt me so bad and so have my friends. I am going through a rough time. My mentor of 10 years and friend of 10 years whom I had lunch with every day died of pancreatic cancer Thursday morning. We are burying him on Monday at 1PM. Then my good friend told me she has breast cancer and is having surgery on 3/9. WOW. If anyone tells me I am weak I will deck them, like I did with the stupid orderly at the hospital when they told me my husband died. He walked up behind me and and didn't know who he was and I knocked him 6 feet backwards. My knuckles were black and blue for at least a week. We made peace. I was lucky, I was able to see my husband after he died and held him and told him how much I loved him. The loss is so great, I understand why people want to die when their loved ones passes. I feel the same way. But, I am going to try to go on and make my Lonnie proud of me.
