FaithFull Posted August 16, 2010 Report Share Posted August 16, 2010 As I stated in my previous post, I lost my husband of 40 years to cancer 4 years ago and then my fiance died of cancer 8 months ago. A few months before my husband died we moved from our home of 30 years to a retirement community that was close to our only child and grandchildren. Now my little family has to move to another state for one year to fulfill a military obligation. I am trying to be strong and present a positive attitude for my family's sake. I know they know how much this is hurting me. I am struggling to stay active, but find there are days when I can't seem to get anything done. Something as simple as doing the dishes seems like an enormous chore and, why bother? There will be more dishes later. Some days I feel so selfish and weak, knowing there are families that face much more difficult situations. However, in my state of grief, I see their moving away as another form of loss. Thanks for listening. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
