For anyone that has lost there loving partner you know how hard it is to get up and start over. This happened to me 2 years ago now its been one long hard road to travel. Knowing you have to get up every morning and try to keep living but not wanting to was the hardest time I every had and not in any hurry to repeat it, my kids were worried about me to the point my son quite his job in another state and came home and stayed with me, I felt my sole had been ripped out, so as days turned into nights and days again I wandered how I was going to start living again, I had quite my job and looked after my husbane for the last 3 years,doing everything for him as I couldn’t not see him through it all no matter how sick he got I just never saw the end coming as fast as it did and when he left me I was holding him in my arms and a part of me dyed too. So a year later I decided I had to get back out and try and have a life I wasn’t going to go back to what I use to do so I did a course and was accepted into a company where I am now working part time but as time goes on the hurt is always there just now its acceptable I know one day we will be together again I just wish we had had more time. as they say one day at a time and tomorrow is another day my kids are my life. Thank you

  • i like reading these stories


  • wonderful


  • The loss of any loved one is devastating & the grieving process does ease over time. The happy memories you shared replaces the sadness over the years. I’m glad you have a supportive family & Well Done to you too!


  • I’m so sorry for your loss. I hope that as more time goes on even though your pain may never go away that it eases a little for you. Your story was very moving. I’m sorry that words escape me, as I have not been in this position where I have lost a partner. To experience the love and devotion you had and knowing that you will be together one day I hope provides you even with a small amount of comfort. I’m sorry once again. xxx


  • The hurt never goes away, does it? But it does get easier to live with. Good luck.


  • I hope over time some of your pain can subside a little and I can remember watching my Mum do and go through the same thing. Your heart will never forget your partner as it has been 16 years on the 12 of August and my Mum tells about how they met and when my Daughter and I was going through Mum’s paper work to see what was no longer needed as receipts and things and we found love letter from Mum to Dad and from Dad to Mum from when they we dating and when we showed Mum she remembers every single one of them. You move on with your life but as in Mum’s case Dad is still with hr every day.
