I'm wondering if anyone else on here has lost a spouse at a very young age. I'm only 38, and my husband passed away in October at 41. He was my soulmate and other half, and I imagined that we would be together forever. We were married for only seven short years, and it's hard to come to terms with the fact that he was taken from me so soon. He passed away from a neurological disorder similar to ALS, and the last couple of years were very difficult for us. I knew this was a possibility when I married him as he was already disabled when we met, but the love that we had for each other trumped all of that, and it was so worth it even knowing the possible outcome. Now that that distant possibility has become reality, it certainly doesn't make it any easier to accept. I'm left feeling cheated out of a lifetime of love and happiness, wondering what my future will hold, and trying to figure out how to move forward. As his disease progressed, it became necessary for me to become his full-time caregiver, which led to the loss of my job, as well. So now I find myself in an impossible situation trying to grieve, trying to heal, and also trying to support myself and find a job. Just wondering if anyone else can relate.
