How are all of you who have lost a spouse coping??
I'm SO sad without him,
(don't get me wrong, I'm not checking out of life),
angry that he's dead,
guilty when I'm somewhere that I should be having a good time, but, can't enjoy myself,
can't part with his 'stuff', because I feel like I'm throwing a part of him away,
don't talk about him much, as I think people are getting tired of hearing it,
crying every day,
not looking to 'replace' him, (most of the men that I know, I wouldn't have coffee with, let alone date)
it's difficult raising 2 sons without their father, who was awesome.
People say, 'Oh, I know just what you're going through, my dog died yesterday' and I want to strangle them. Women hang onto their men a little tighter around me. (I DON'T want yours, trust me!!)
I enjoy being with my sons, working, and being at home. Life goes on without him even though I think it shouldn't.
I can put on a good front in public. Please don't think I have my face in a hanky every waking minute. I'm not looking for pitty. I've tried support groups-they didn't work.
I don't think losing a spouse is as hard as losing a child-that's the ultimate sorrow. (in my opinion)
How are the rest of you coping??
