wmjsca Posted October 26, 2010 Report Share Posted October 26, 2010 I cannot believe how hard this is. He was never sick. He didn't smoke; no chronic illnesses; no medications. We met when I was 46 and he had just turned 47. I had given up on love by then, but he was the sweetest, kindest soul on earth. He and my son bonded immediately and I embarked on the first real love affair of my life. He retired from public service in April and was enjoying his free time, but started feeling weak. I tried to get him to see a doctor and when he finally did was told it was nothing serious and no treatment followed. He went a few more months and was refusing to get help until two weeks ago he became so weak he was hospitalized. The diagnosis: Lymphoma, stage IV...I hardly had time to digest this news before he was on life support; disconnected; and died on 10/22/10 at age 53. I have never felt more pain. It's as though I'm living a bad dream and can't wake up. I can relate to the stories from people who envy couples. It's happening to me already. It's not fair....it took me until midlife to find the love of my life and he's gone. Just that quickly. I can't describe the pain. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
