      Changes   03/08/2016

      HI everybody, I'm sure by now you have all figured out we have some changes on the forums. These were due to the security of the forums; we try very hard to keep spam off the forums but it occasionally get through and causes problems. The new updates should help with this kind of problem.  I'm sure you've browsed and figured out that the posts are listed in order of the very first post to the latest. For Loss of An Adult Child, this means there are more than 2,000 pages to go through. The easiest way I've found is to click on the double arrows by the page numbers, get to the last page (it usually goes right to it for me) and then scroll down the page. You should be able to read all the posts for the day.  We are trying to see if there is a way to reverse the order. I'll let you know what we find out, and I will post more suggestions and tips as we go forward.  I want to apologize for any inconveniences and stress this update has caused. We value each and every member, and we will work to make this transition as seamless as possible.  Sincerely, ModKonnie

I lost my husband

2 posts in this topic

I lost my husband on February 18, 2011. We were separated, but we were still friends and talked often.

I feel so sad, empty and lost. I knew this day would come because he was not taking care of himself and had no desire to live. I tried for years to help him. It breaks my heart that he is gone and that I was not able to do anything to prevent it.

I have been through this before. I lost my first husband in 1994. I can't believe I have to go through this pain again.

I go to his house to take care of things about once a week. Sometimes it brings me comfort to be there and other times, it is just too sad. He died there .... all alone. I didn't get to say goodbye. I keep thinking that I will see him there. And most of the time, I truly wish that I would.

I know all the stages that I will go through with his death. I know that time will heal and bring comfort. But right now, that is not helpful. It just hurts too much and I am just so tired of losing those that I love.

My heart goes out to all of you here that have lost someone. I wish that none of us had to endure this grief and pain.

Carol,

I am sorry about the loss of your husband. I, too, wish we never had to go through grief, but, well....Do you know what he died from? I can only hope that as the days go by, you will feel better. We will be here when you need to talk.
