    Struggling with the term widow

    Rising above chos, I like your username. You are trying to rise above this. A word is just that it is how you see yourself. I choke on the word because for me I do not want it to be true with all of my heart. I want my love to be waiting for me or sitting in the chair next to me when someone asks where is your husband? Widow does not need to define you. But it is a reality now. One that is more painful than anyone can imagine. Say what you need to say at the moment you decide to say it. It is ok to not talk about it at times too. Wishing you peace beyond understanding. Amor
  2. Hi Gem, I am so sorry you are going through this. Winston Churchill " When you find yourself in hell keep going. I have found this helpful. It does not seem to move on but having to go through grief in our own journey. This hell on earth is unbelievably hard. Treat yourself as if you are healing from a really bad burn. The pain will lessen but you will always have a scar. Wishing you peace and comfort through these rough days. Amor

    Confessions of a widow

    I still wear his clothes on occasion to bed Look at the empty chair next to me often and think you should be sitting there. Wishing no one would sit there but my love. still have a hard time saying or admitting the W word. Like it would change, if I do not say it then it is not true mentality. Like watching movies we enjoyed together.

    The Silence

    I do like the silence. Alone where no one sees the tears. Making is easier to hide the pain.
