My Best Freind

My husband of 42 1/2 years and absolutly my soul mate pasted away may 31 2008. We did everything together down to watching the grass grow in the front yard and the paint dry on the walls in our retirement house in maryland. My soulmate. I have read some of the others experiences and I can relate to 100%. I now sold the house because to many memories I cannot bear with living there without him. I have relocated to milford connecticut and bought myself a condo, living alone. The weekends are difficult for me when I am completely alone. I need a freind or two going through the same situation as I, to hang around with or talk to, maybe meet for coffee or a little shopping as well. My daughter lives in new york and is helping me on the computer to reach you until I finally get my own computer. She (debbie) comes back and forth to keep me updated as well as on the phone. I sure hope this is ok for now? My life has done a 360, everything is completely different. I am not interested in any of those greifence groups, I stay away from that element. I feel I think I can be comfortable belonging to a group such as yours. Thank you for your time.

I am following right behind you. I recently lost my husband and am finding that it is quite lonely out here. There are those who care, those who talk to you, those who will go out to dinner or breakfast with you and those that will hang out with you...................but..................none of them measure up to or even begin to take the pain away from that relationship that you had with your husband. The long nights talking in bed, the morning ciggs, the talks after coming home from work, the strolls in the park, the vacations, the.....LIFE. <BR>It seems as though it is all gone. I know I need to press on and get on with life but find myself physicially tired and unable to do that at this time.<BR>My husband passed the day after Christmas. He wasn't that ill, just had a run of the mill cold. He took an Augmentin and within 10 minutes was seizing in the back yard from an allergic reaction. Who would of ever guessed.<BR>It's so hard, we were not prepared, not that anyone ever is but at the age of 49 we were beginning to get OUR lives together...the kids were getting grown, the grandchildren were coming and the house would of soon been empty. It is empty now but for the wrong reasons. How do you ever recover from something like this?<BR><BR>True love never dies.

My condolences on your loss. We are here to talk and discuss and support each other!
