For My Sweet Dog Sophie

When I lost my wife 4 years ago I thought the grief would never end.. and in reality it hasn't.  What shocked me to my core is how losing our dog this weekend has affected me and how similar the gut wrenching pain is. 

Growing up with dogs I've always known this day would come and that it would be painful, but nothing prepared me for how it would feel losing the dog I brought into my own home, the dog I was responsible for, the dog who loved me without condition.  I was the pack…

I want to do something for my wife.

It's been a really bad 14 months since my 32 year old wife died. I've been feeling so bad about myself, feeling sorry for myself, that I had forgotten the good memories. Today was surprisingly a good day thinking about her. I just did a slideshow of pic off my iPad of her. She was smiling in every pic. I remember that what attracted me to her the most was her love to live. She would just start talking to someone if they looked like they were having a bad day. She would talk to anyone. She was… Continue

What's wrong with me?

It's been over a year since my wife died. I just got on medicine and I do feel better but what worries me is I honesty see no future for me. Like my life is done and over and their is nothing to work for anymore. Does this go away? I can't see me ever loving anyone again. And if I am looking I'm just looking for someone like my wife. But no one can be my wife. She was her and nobody can be like her. This sucks.

I make $300 a month and that's fine with me. I know I should have hopes and… Continue

One of my best friends passed away a few days shy of a month ago. She was like my sister, like my twin because we went through a lot of the same stuff and we leaned on each other for everything, when things got tough or bad we would always turn to each other. We would always talk to each other every day. She spent her last weekend on this earth with me. It was valentines day weekend. She spent the night with my bf, her bf, and I. We had so much fun and then both her and I proceeded to go…

Hell Week

This blog post will sum up some of the events leading up to my mom's death, in particular an especially emotionally damaging week that I'm still having difficulty getting over. Warning: this will be long. 

To say that my parent's marriage was never easy would be an understatement. In the 22 years of my life before my mother's death my parents had separated and reconnected at least once a year, separation lasting sometimes as long as 2 years. When I was in high school my mother…

My mom passed away 19 months ago from triple negative breast cancer which had spread to her lungs and brain. In the couple months before she passed, my parents' house had burnt down and in addition to losing the house and a lot of our "stuff", the hardest part was that my two cats succumbed to the smoke from the fire and passed away curled up with each other under my parents bed. I was away at school at the time and found out via phone call. We were so lucky my parents escaped relatively…

Finding a lump on your breast. A moment that takes your breathe away. What do you do? Where do you go? Who do you talk to? I cried. Hard. Not because there is a slight chance that I may have breast cancer but because I had no one to talk to, no one to go to. My mom passed away nearly 1 1/2 ago. I cried in my car after I left the doctors office. I'm scared and alone. All I want is the warm hug of mother to protect me from all of the hurt. I don't know what's going to happen. One thing I do know… Continue

How do I carry on alone?

4 months ago today I lost my husband of 33 years to cancer. I am falling apart and not sure how to carry on alone. We met when we were only 15 and had been together since. Now at 51 years old I am left here to try and carry on without him. How do I do that?  I think I have been coping pretty good but some days are worse than others. Today is one of those really bad days. I was just wondering if anyone has any words of encouragement that may help me get through these bad days. Any little…

Hello, I am Sad

Hello, everyone, I am Sad.....I joined this club I hate of "widowhood" about 8 months ago with no warning.

W e would have celebrated out 40 anniversary in Feb. with a party, instead it was a party for one with lots of memories and more tears and more what now.


My husbands death was unexpected he was fine and talked to me before I left for work, never realizing that last kiss, touch of our fingers or look would be our last...The alone that followed, the fog that has yet…
