Bstiarwalt Posted April 4, 2015 Report Share Posted April 4, 2015 My name is Barb and I lost my husband of 28 years on November 13, 2014. My husband was diagnosed with esophageal and colon cancer in February of 2013. It hasn't been a full five months since his passing and I like many others here am having a hard time coping with life without him. We were together for 36 years we lived together for 8 years before we got married. Larry and I did everything together, worked on projects,rode dirt bikes together, watched movies and the same sports, we were always together when he wasn't at work. His illness hit us hard in every way it could, emotionally, financially, and physically. When he died in November I not only lost my husband, and best friend, but our home as well. With the help of some really close friends I managed to hold everything together long enough to get everything moved including myself and now I am faced at the age of 57 of starting my life over. I struggle every day with the grief and sadness of loosing my husband and best friend. I am so tired of people telling me to stop whining and move on, I could just scream. I still cry every day whenever I am reminded of him, a song on the radio, a sporting event on television or just the sight of one of his shirts hanging in the closet. I thought I was the only one who felt this way and then a friend sent me a link to your site. At least I now know I am not alone and it is not crazy or ridiculous to still be mourning his loss.
