Members Teesh Posted October 16, 2013 Members Report Share Posted October 16, 2013 Hi everyone. I'm new to this group but I'm hoping having people talk to who understand will help me figure all of this out.Well, I guess I'll start by telling you a little about me. I got married when I was 21 to my best friend. We found out 2 years later (a month after our sons first birthday) that he had a terminal illness. At the time his doctor gave him maybe 5 years to live. Well, we did everything the doctors said and he did everything he could to stay healthy. I know he was tired but he kept fighting and never gave up. Our daughter was born last January, not long after our 12 year anniversary. I could tell last summer that Jason wasn't doing well but he always said he was fine.December 3rd he was fine. All day he was fine. Then that night at 10:00 he started to cough. Nothing big just a little cough. One thing led to another and by midnight he was in the ER with a 30% oxygen level. I lost my best friend on December 7th, 2012. Less than a week before our sons 11th birthday.I thought those first months would be the hardest. With our sons birthday, then Christmas, then 2 weeks later our baby girl turned 1. But this weekend would have been our 13 year wedding anniversary and I feel like I've lost him all over again. I don't know how to do this. If it was just me I would crawl in a hole and pretend Sunday didn't exist. But I know I have to be strong for my kids. So what do I do? How do I make it through this week without falling apart? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for taking the time to read this. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
