Members DMC Posted November 11, 2013 Members Report Share Posted November 11, 2013 I just stumbled across this group last night and wanted to introduce myself. I am 44 years old and lost my husband of 20 years after a 4 month battle with cancer. We have 3 sons. Everything is so raw right now for all,of us. Watching my kids go through this pain is absolutely heartbreaking and I feel like I have no way to truly console them because my own pain is so deep. I haven't gone back to work yet and the days just drag on with very little getting accomplished. I have been seeing a therapist since a few weeks before he passed and she thinks I should wait until after the holidays to return to work. I am a home health physical,therapist so my job is very isolating, I don't have any colleagues around and I'm dealing with sick, home bound elderly patients. Not exactly the distracting kind of work environment that some may be. I never dreamed I would be in this situation and although my marriage wasn't perfect, we were partners in the truest sense. We met when I was 19 so I have never been a grown up without him and I don't know how to BE without him. I am overwhelmed by all of the practical things that have be done when someone dies and taking on all of the things that he did with the house, the kids, etc.Sorry to ramble on. Thank you for listening. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
