JLLSAH Posted November 10, 2014 Report Share Posted November 10, 2014 Hello everyone. I am new to this group as of today and have spent many hours reading all of the posts. My husband was tragically killed in a car crash almost two months ago. He was 36 years old and has three children. Our son who is 6 and my two step children who lived with us full time. It seems most people are uncomfortable talking about grief, so I came here! I only knew my husband for a little over seven years and I feel cheated. Not only is he gone now, but the two children I raised for the last six years are gone to their mother now. So my son and I went from a family of five to just us in two days. And at the risk of sounding like a child, it's not fair!! Sometimes my grief is overwhelming, well, most times. I try to be strong and keep a schedule for the sake of my son, but it takes everything I have in me to get through a day. I have actually had people say to me, "Well, at least you weren't married for 50 years and then lost him." Really?! Then maybe I wouldn't feel so cheated. I would have had the life we planned for us and our children. Now all I can do is hope my son remembers his dad and how much he loved him, and do everything in my power to help him. I'm tired of telling people I am okay when I'm not so that they aren't uncomfortable. I am not okay- I don't have my best friend, my soul mate! How am I suppose to be okay? Every moment of every day I miss him and still find it hard to believe he is gone and our lives will never be the same. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
