Need support grieving for my Dear Precious Man who passed away. I am All alone in the house, and wonder how others have coped with losing someone they loved so dearly.
I have been caring for my Significant Other... - Care Community
hi there! I know it’s not the same but I looked after my dad for 6 years and was then left on my own. You will cope! If you’d like to message rather than be public please feel free to send!
you are all alone in your grief but we all survived somehow and so will you. it helps to go out for a walk or to a friendly cafe. i used to go out every day for a cup of tea and to read the paper. just simple ordinary little things that help things seem normal when nothing is.
i only know how things work in the uk but it helped me to have a counsellor from the Hospice every week - fornight for a year so that I could talk to her endlessly and repetatively week afterweek without need to drive my friends away
the MSA coalition is the equivalent group in the USA
Allow youself to grieve for as long as you need -there is no should, one day you will think of a memory of him with a smile a nd you will know you have seen the light at the end of the tunnel
Thank you for your reply to me. Whether it be a Sig. Other, Mother, Father, Sibling, etc. especially if we were close & caring for our loved one, then grief is grief! It's SO hard & I am glad you coped. I don't know how to message, and that would be fine --need to walk me through that. Thx.
Yes a Terrible Loss and I, Truly Send, My Deepest Sympathy. I fully agree, with the suggestions, that Others have made but make One 'Other' Point..... Namely that you Are NOT Alone..... WE ARE 'HERE' FOR YOU! Please DO contact, any of us, if you need to Sweetheart.
Please know that Our Love, and Prayers are with you Weatherwoman.
My deepest sympathies.... my own experience having been through some tough things.. is that we need time to grieve... but eventually we adjust and sometimes reinvent ourselves a bit given such a big event.
It's just SO hard now. Everyone says it takes time --I hope they are right. Thanks for your hopeful msg.
yes they are right. you may go though all sorts before you heal. you maybe angry, you may be knocked of course by stupid things you are not expecting. you may see HIM in the street as you catch a glimpse of someone who looks a bit like him or who stands or walks the same way but eventually you accept that you have lost him and instead ofhis loving presence ,memories will come back of the good times and laughter and you will be able to reconstruct your life as a better person because of the time you spent together and what you were able to do for him.
eight years on I am living with in an amazing new relationship with a man with similar experiences... he too is what he is after years in a good marriage and we both respect our former partners and talk about them. from time to time. they are no longer here but they are not forgotten
you arre nowhere near ready for this but i just want to show you that however dark the time it can get better
My sympathies to you on the loss of your husband. I nursed my husband for several years. It was very difficult at first, living alone. You may find it difficult now, but you will get used to it eventually. Losing a loved one can make one feel nervous and also lead to a lack of sleep.
Organise your house, so that when bedtime comes you feel as comfortable and safe as you can .
Often, it's difficult to go out and about after a bereavement. When you feel able to, go to the shops, accept invitations from people you are comfortable with, invite someone in for coffee. These things will give a purpose to your day.
Grief is hard, but it is the price that we pay for love and we can dwell on the happy memories as well as being sad for our loss.
My very best wishes to you. X
Thank you for your understanding message. Yes, right now, I feel all lost & alone. I have no children & family live far away. I have friends who live not that close to me, but don't like driving across bridges, etc. Yes, when I go out now (and, I'm not going out much now I feel So different than I used to. I hope, in time, that things will be better. Thx., again, for your post.
