  1. Four weeks. 28 days. 672 hours. 40, 320 minutes..... However we say it, he's been gone that long. I was doing a little better last week, but today has me wrecked. I'm looking at a full week of no plans at all and a looooong weekend as I have Friday off work. I think the quiet is the hardest part. I've been part of a partnership since I was 18 years old. Not a day went by where I was a single woman. Now, I find I've neglected to make friends that are just mine. Our friends are just that "our friends." and they are not really interested in including me in couples activities. I don;t blame them, but now I guess I have to make some new ones and I've never had to do that. Any tips?
  2. Today was far worse than the others. Jim's daughter has decided to hire an attorney to fight me because she thinks I'm hiding assets. He has been unwell for several years and had many medical issues. None were terminal, so his death was still a shock, but the bills were substantial. I already offered her any things she might want from her father, but I'm not surprised the daughter who had only talked to her dad a handful of times in the past 5 years is the greedy one who just wants a payday. It hurt. I wanted to scream, but instead, I worked.
  3. On May 27, 2019, my world changed forever. My husband of 7 years and partner of almost 12 years took his final breath. It all happened so fast. One minute he was with me and the next, he was gone. He had health issues, but none were terminal so this is a complete shock. I live in Florida, the place we came to start our new life, but that means I am away from all of my family. My church friends were great for the first week or so, but have stopped calling and returned to their lives (as they should). I just have no idea how to even start to understand all of this, and yesterday I woke up with the whole day ahead of me and its just so looooong. I'm afraid I can't survive this....
  4. I'm very new to this journey. I lost my sweet, loving husband on May 27, 2019. This is the first day that I have been fully and completely alone and to be honest, I'm not sure I can do this. I want to die. I'm 42 and have never lived alone and now there is nothing but silence. I came here to see how other people do it and it sounds like my life is pretty much over. I can't imagine how I will ever live or laugh or even function again, and I feel so guilty because our last conversation was an argument. I don't feel worthy of this grief. I feel like I should hurt forever.
