  1. I met Shawn when I was a bus driver in our small city & picked him up from work. He had to go to several stops & I had to wait for him. I was still grieving my broken marriage from almost a year before. I was extremely depressed over my husband leaving, so much so that I couldn't eat and lost 75 lbs in 3 months. I can't put my finger on what it was about him that I felt comfortable talking to him. He was kind of brusque and a bit blunt, but for whatever reason, it didn't put me off. I found out he had come out of a broken relationship himself about 6 months before. We talked about
  2. My condolences on the loss of your loved one. It hasn't even been a month for me yet so I think of him constantly. My life was so intertwined with his, I associate just about everything with him.
  3. My heartfelt condolences on your loss. A lot of what you described sounds like not only the old me that this just happened to, but the young me almost 30 years ago when my daughter's Dad was killed on the job. We weren't legally married, I was in my mid 20's & with a 2 1/2 yr old and a 9 month old, I was crazy with grief. I knew what he died of though & my daughter's were what kept me going. Now, I'm in my mid 50's, my daughter's are grown & I have no answers as to why I'm now alone & my soul mate died. Now all we can do is try to survive the guilt, live with the unan
  4. Kieron, I'm so sorry to hear of the pain your loved one suffered. It sounds like he was put through hell and back. My condolences. Shawn, my husband, had actually had his heel operated on, was on a multitude of antibiotics & had a wound vac on his heel, MOST of the time. It was supposed to remain on for 4-6 weeks, but he had some stupid/lazy nurses who didn't want to mess with it so it was off for a few days. It was back on the day he passed away & he had actually had an appt with his foot Dr the day before. I figured if she had found anything sketchy with his wound she would have
  5. This topic definitely hit a nerve. My spouse had health problems which I don't deny, but 2 days before he went into the hospital he was employed full time as a a Security Guard. He was ambulatory, on no kind of oxygen & was 100% coherent. He did have an infected wound on his heel that was made worse because of his diabetes. He did not have Medicaid because he was employed, he couldn't afford the health insurance through work because the premiums were through the roof & he didn't have money stashed away. He went from being the man I described above to being on the highest level of oxyge
  6. Hello All, I'm new here and I'm glad for this site, but sorry any of us are here. I lost my spouse of almost 20 years on the 26th of September. He was my best friend, but more than that he was my support system. I've been through the loss of another loved one many years ago. My daughter's Dad was killed on the job when they were just babies, and although it was very hard on me & I grieved for a very long time, I had two children relying on me to care for them, so that took up a good part of my life. They were my blessings that helped keep my sanity. If you notice my user name,
