This year has been a challenge!

Friday, July 26, 2019

I had hoped that 2019 would be a wonderful year for me, instead it's been one of obstacles and trials. My whole life changed February 26th when the love of my life, my soulmate, unexpectedly passed away. Today is the 5 month anniversary of his passing and in that 5 months, I've had to move from our home, deal with his insane family, start a new job and try to put my life back together. I had gotten comfortable in life and had gained back most of the 79 pounds I lost several years ago. Since he passed away, I have lost over 45 pounds and am determined to finally reach my goal. It keeps me focused on taking care of myself. I'm working hard to find myself again and figure out how to live without the man I have been with for 10 years.

    emoticon So Sorry for your loss, and having so much Crud to deal with.
    My husband passed away in December of 2016, I am thankful that I have been able to continue to take care of myself.
    Maybe the best way to honor our husbands is to take Good Care Of Us.

    It isn't easy, but you are making steps in the right direction. Death of those close to us can throw a major monkey wrench into our lives. Prayers for you and if you feel like it might help, there is a team on here called Lost a Loved One. There are people at many points in the grieving process ranging from those who have been on the team for many years, like me who has lost many people over the years and always finds support there, to those whose loss is fresh and very raw.

    (Cont) odd emotions ! It is not unusual to feel anger at them for leaving ! I talk to my Hubby a lot, especially to his picture on the wall or while remembering our anniversary by going to Lake George,NY 🙏🙏💞💞🙏🙏

    My sympathy and prayers are with you ! 2 days ago was 5 yrs since Mom passed, this year also marks 10 yr since Dad and my beloved Hubby passed. Take one day at a time, grieve in whatever way works for you. Don't be surprised if you experience odd emo

    My prayers are with you. I pray you learn to remember and enjoy the good times you had with him. I'm sure starting over is hard, but all you have is one day at a time. You can do this. I know he is smiling and cheering you on.
