nakirk19 Posted February 3, 2013 Report Share Posted February 3, 2013 I lost my beloved husband & soulmate Dec. 17th 2012. We were married 17 yrs this coming March 14th. I am trying to keep busy, as that is the only way I feel I can get through my days. This is the first time I have posted anything but I wanted you all to know that just reading some of the posts in this forum has been of tremendous comfort to me. To not feel so alone in my feelings has been of enormous help. I cannot talk of my husband with friends yet without breaking down, so this forum gives me the chance to express how completely lost I feel without him. His diagnosis of cancer came out of the blue after a heart attack. We got through that only to be slapped with the cancer a couple of weeks later. It was very aggressive and he was gone within 2 months at age 59yrs. (he had only had 1 chemo treatment). In his last 2 months his only concern seemed to be me and how I was going to cope. You see, I was not understanding how I survived a brain aneurysm after 4 months in & out of hospital only for my husband to be taken from me 5 short years later. My Tom helped me with this by stating "Please don't be angry with God, He gave me another 5 years with you!" That sums up my beloved husband, his glass was always half FULL. I miss him terribly. I am very grateful for the time I had with him, I truly am, though it was not nearly long enough. I know we will be together again one day in heaven, but I can't help thinking it's not going to happen soon enough. I prayed hard in Church today that I be given the strength I need to get through this overwhelming sense of grief. Just to write these words down has helped. You are all so kind in your responses to others, thank you for listening! Nicole Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
