Missing my other half

Discussion in 'Loss of Spouse' started by Kathy Johnson, Mar 5, 2019.

  1. Just when you think it’s going ok, you get a birthday card in the mail with Mrs Bruce Johnson on it. I’ve been in a funk ever since. I lost my husband to stomach cancer a little over 3 years ago. We had been married just short of 34 years and together 37. He was only 58. I was very fortunate though, he lived with it for 5 1/2 years. Which is 4 1/2 years more than most people.
    I miss my best friend. We did EVERYTHING together. I was lucky in that I didn’t have to really work while we were married. I’ve had to go back to work now, it’s been the most challenging thing ever. I miss our adventures and traveling. I miss the every day things like grocery shopping together.
    I’ve been doing really good I think, but the card really got to me. I’ve tried dating sights and had been messaging with someone, never even met the guy, but feel like I’m cheating. I really am still a Mrs in my heart. Even though I’m lonely and miss the little things I think I’m better off alone. I just miss him so very much, it hurts my heart and makes me sad

    Very sorry Kathy. My loss was less than 2 months ago and I miss my best friend too. We were empty nesting & inseparable; we loved traveling & grocery shopping together as well. For me he was 1 in 10 million. It’s excruciating to lose someone that loves & cares for us so much but I know God cares about us and can meet our needs -Trust him! And if the situation were reversed I’m sure you would want Bruce to have a companion. Don’t feel guilty, he doesn’t want you to be sad and lonely.

    I lost my husband too soon. He was in retirement and didn’t get to enjoy it. It was a shock to everyone close to him. He is with peace now and we have to move on with life.

    I lost my dearest hubs just 3 weeks ago.....he walked out to the kitchen to take out the trash and I heard a loud crash. Silence. They could not revive him. It was his heart. V fib. But...after the stents, he was doing so well. I cannot believe it. I feel so frail and vulnerable. Thank God for this site and sorry we have to be here.
