    Today is the 25th day since the love of my life stopped breathing. I can't imagine ever feeling joy again...

    I know how you feel, the emptiness is overwhelming. I don’t know what to do anymore, my life feels at an end and I’m just filling in time. It’s been 8 months.

    It has been five of the longest months of my life. I literally am taking things one moment at a time. Every time I feel that I’m doing well for a few days or a week, I hit a brick wall, and I go through a whole new round of sadness. At the drop of a hat, the tears just start falling. I hate to be such a downer, so I’m mostly upbeat around others and cry in private.

    Gina - I know exactly how you feel - I lost my husband of over 30 years, a little over 2 year ago. He was vibrant, handsome, funny, caring and we were very close - he was all I had - we had no family. He died from complications from dementia at 71 yeas old. I am lost without him. You know, wen I go to bed, since he died, I never open his side of the bed - I keep the bedspread intact because if I see his side of the bed open, I will expect him to come into it - so nights are rough. Like you, I cry all the time. Anything can make me cry - especially eating all alone in a restaurant, remembering watching him suffer physically, memories of certain sentimental dates to us... I cry privately like you. Acquaintances I have do not let me talk about him - they wish me to forget. But, I am all alone as I do not really see them - just talk on the phone. Yes, I hate it when they complain to me about their little problems or brag about going somewhere - they are so cold! So, I can be sitting and watching TV and all of a sudden the waterworks begin! There is n controlling them! Just let it out. I cry too because I wish I had any family - a big hug from a family member to tell me everything will be alright would help, and weekends are the hardest. My Marty died on a Saturday and that is the worst day of the week for me. I try to get through it, and of course I do. I just want you to know I know how you are feeling - the pain is so unbearable - my heart goes out to you. I am so sorry for your loss.

    I understand all too well. It's been 9 months. We were married just shy of 30 years. My beautiful Cheryl was only 50 and we had so many hopes for our retirement and spending more time with our twin grandchildren. Most days I can get through, with just a few sad moments. But some days are filled with sickening loneliness and such a feeling of despair that I feel like giving up . I hope you find the strength and energy you need to keep pushing forward every day.
