everything hurts, I cant close my eyes without seeing it happening
he collapsed at home
I did chest compressions till the ambulance came
they tried for ages but he was gone
I cant stop seeing it
my arms hurt, my heart hurts
I'm exhausted
I cant do this again

TrinityRhino Sat 11-May-13 08:40:39

its like a nightmare that I'm not waking up from
I cant stop it

PerfumedPonce Sat 11-May-13 08:41:55

I'm so sorry. What an awful thing to happen. Cannot imagine how you are feeling. Have you got support at home?

HappyJustToBe Sat 11-May-13 08:42:14

Hand to hold. Do you have anyone with you?

I'm so sorry to hear that. Sending you a hug.
Can you get some counselling?

DottyDot Sat 11-May-13 08:43:22

Oh God Trinity no.... I'm so, so sorry. Have you got anyone with you?

Hi Trinity I'm so so sorry for your loss. Are you on your own? Is there anyone you can call to come over?

hellhasnofurylikeahungrywoman Sat 11-May-13 08:43:58

What an awful thing to experience, have you got someone with you? My heart goes out to you, I am so sorry for your loss.

TrinityRhino Sat 11-May-13 08:44:47

Oh Trin, how awful for you. Thoughts and prayers for you and your family,x

Sparklingbrook Sat 11-May-13 08:46:00

Trinity I am so, so sorry. x

You probably won't want to but do you think you could call the emergency out of hours GP to come and give you something just to get you through this immediate aftermath?

Do you have help there with you now? Where are you in the country?

Am so sorry this has happened, big hug and hand hold.

Oh no, Trin, oh how awful. I am so, so, sorry.

Tiredtrout Sat 11-May-13 08:46:49

I'm so sorry trinity, that's just a terrible thing to have happen

BranchingOut Sat 11-May-13 08:47:08

You will stop seeing it, but maybe not just yet. Have you slept? Can you get anyone to be with you.

Indith Sat 11-May-13 08:47:20

I'm so sorry Trinity.

Well done for keeping your head and doing compressions. You did exactly the right thing and gave him every chance you could.

My thoughts are with you and your family.

CharlieUniformNovemberTango Sat 11-May-13 08:47:58

Oh Trinity - I'm so desperately sorry you're having to deal with this sad

You need some real life people around you though.

Be kind to yourself - it's going to hurt and there is nothing you can do to stop that this soon so don't waste your time trying to be normal or right just now.

One breath at a time. That's all you need to get through just now xx

poachedeggs Sat 11-May-13 08:47:59

Oh Trinity I'm so, so sorry, I can't believe this. You don't know me but I "know" you, and your story. Hang in there, MN is with you.

I'm so so sorry this has happened. I'm here to hold your hand. You must be feeling so raw and shocked. I'm sorry xx

Tell us about him. What was he like, where did you meet? What made him laugh?

Think about him as the person and tell us, try to stop focusing on the event of his death and tell us about him.

DottyDot Sat 11-May-13 08:48:59

inneedofrain Sat 11-May-13 08:57:49

Oh you poor thing

There are no words that are going to help much at the moment

Your Dp must have been a wonderful man your pain must feel all consuming

We will hold your hand but remember you may need help to get past the first few days and the physical shock it might be worth calling you ooh they should be help if you feel like it might be a good idea

It sound rediculius but time does help you will in time be able to remember your woderful husband and not relive the last few moments of his life

There is no right of wrong for your emotions at the moment if you need to scream and punch the wall then do it if you need to cry then do if all you can manage is sit on the sofa then that is right too

Be kind to your self i am very sorry for your lose

chimchar Sat 11-May-13 08:58:20

Oh god Trinity I know your backstory I can't believe it

Hand holding here :-))

MexicanHouseThief Sat 11-May-13 09:00:26

Oh Trinity, I can't believe it. There are no words. How amazing you are for keeping your head and giving him chest compressions. You did everything there was to do.

It is so wrong that you are going through this again sad

It's normal IME to keep seeing the moment when you've watched a loved one die. It will fade, but for now just know that it is normal, if horrible.

Charleymouse Sat 11-May-13 09:01:29

Trinity so sorry to hear about your loss. I also thought this was a zombie thread and then clocked the date and thought oh no, how much can one person take.

Trinity you are strong, you can go on, you have a lovely family to help you through this. Keep posting, you know (unfortunately from experience) that there is someone here at all times who can offer practical support and an emotional crutch.

Thinking of you and sending love and prayers your way. CM x

lougle Sat 11-May-13 09:01:57

I'm so sorry, trinity. I thought you were describing a nightmare sad not your dp.

What can we say? It was awful the first time. You shouldn't be doing it again.

ISeeSmallPeople Sat 11-May-13 09:05:41

Trinity I am so sorry.

I am so, so sorry to hear of your loss.

Be very gentle with yourself, you will go through a whole range of emotions and it is important that you give yourself time.

When you feel ready, maybe contact Cruse, for some support for you and the children.

toomuch2young Sat 11-May-13 09:07:37

So sorry to hear about your loss Trinity you don't know me but I do know your story.

TrinityRhino Sat 11-May-13 09:08:13

thankyou everyone

he was a big strong man
he had a red hat he wore all the time
he used to call his crocs 'melly mels' cause we once saw a picture of mel gibson in crocs and he was trying to convince me that crocs were cool cause mel gibson wore them and I fancied mel gibson when he was younger

he loved curry, he used to spend hours in the kitchen making curries from scratch
really hot and tasty
I used to taste them, they were really tasty but waaay too hot for me
he used to love to sweat whilst eating a curry

he loved fishing, the sea, nature
we used to go and collect the flatfish from the salmon nets in the sea outside my house

he was so loving and kind but in private grin
he was a big strong mans man but with a soft squishy heart
I used to call him my teddy bear in a crocodile suit

I cant stop crying

AtYourCervix Sat 11-May-13 09:09:03

Trinity. I am so so sorry.

Trinity, I was so shocked when I opened this thread and realised it was you and that you were suffering another tragic loss. Such a tragedy, you poor, poor thing. Life is desperately unfair. I hope purplepillow is with you soon.

Take care of yourself.

mummylin Sat 11-May-13 09:10:27

I can't believe you are going through this terrible tragedy after all you have already been through. Sending you my deepest sympathy, you know mn will be here for you x

minkulus Sat 11-May-13 09:10:53

Trinity my heartfelt sympathy. You are a very brave woman. You didn't fall apart and you did the best for DP.
Your pain and shock are very raw. Your head is full of those awful images and for now you will need to deal with each wave of shock as it hits you, but keep posting, keep contact. It will help to detach you and give you another means of letting it out of your head.
Been through something similar recently and just letting it go on here helped so much.

MrsWolowitz Sat 11-May-13 09:11:29

Oh Trin.

I'm so sorry. I just don't have any words.

He sounds like a wonderful man and you are amazing to have done everything you did for him.


Of course you can't, lovely. You won't be able to and that's fine. You're in that terrible bubble of grief and shock right now and i wish there was more I could do than just type into this little box right now.
Please let me know if there is anything i can do in the coming days or after and I will do it.


Hassled Sat 11-May-13 09:12:28

Trinity - my heart breaks for you - after everything you've gone through and all the strength you've shown. He sounds like he was such a lovely man. I'm just so sorry.

TrinityRhino Sat 11-May-13 09:12:35

Oh god Trinity, my heart breaks for you. Another oldie here, thinking of you xxxx

LemonBreeland Sat 11-May-13 09:13:24

Trinity I'm so sorry to read this. You and your girls gave been through more than enough. sad

Just take it slowly and take care of yourself.

He sounds wonderful.

Do you want to carry on talking about him?

Think about him and all he meant to you, it will hurt but it will be easier not to think about the circumstances of his death.

differentnameforthis Sat 11-May-13 09:13:38

I too had to check this wasn't an old post & I am speechless. SO sorry for your loss.

mummylin Sat 11-May-13 09:13:40

I dont know how one person can have this happen twice. Life is such a bitch sometimes, I am truly shocked.

LEMisdisappointed Sat 11-May-13 09:14:28

Oh God, i can't believe this sad feel angry for you

You did make me smile re the crocs - to be fair, i don't think even mel gibson wearing them will make them cool, but I bet your man looked good in them anyway xxxx

Oh god, my heart goes out to you.

CharlieMumma Sat 11-May-13 09:14:54

Oh Trinity. I had to keep checking the date.

I am so so sorry this has happened to you. He sounds lovely.

TrinityRhino Sat 11-May-13 09:15:28

we choose an engagement ring at the end of last year
he wanted to do it properly and he was waiting for the right time

silly sod, he was just joking a couple pf days ago that hes panicking about doing it right and he should get on with it

he knew I wanted a proper proposal but all I meant was heartfelt words and maybe down on one knee

I want to wear it now

McKayz Sat 11-May-13 09:15:32

He sounds like a lovely man. You can take a small comfort knowing that you did all you could do to help him. xx

EwanHoozami Sat 11-May-13 09:16:22

I'm so very sorry, Trinity. Sending much love.

TrinityRhino Sat 11-May-13 09:16:28

oh they will never be cool but they worked really well for paddling in the sea and walking the dog on the sand
he loved tham because they were practical
I agreed they were practical but ugh

BIWI Sat 11-May-13 09:16:53

Oh Trinity, I am so, so, sorry.

You know that we are all here for you, whenever you need us.



Trinity, I am another one who had to check the date on the thread shocksad.

I am so, so sorry for your loss and you having to deal with this after all you've been through.
Life is so fucking unfair sometimes angry.
Can you take comfort from the fact that you really, truly did everything anybody could be expected to do to help him?

You have proven before how amazingly strong you are, I am sorry you will have to tap into this strength again.

How are your kids?

Much love x.

He sounds wonderful.

Just take small steps to get through the next few days trinity

It's so wrong that you have to go through this again. I hope you have lots of RL support around you now.

Is there anything practical we can do?

Keep talking if it helps

there are no words, thinking of you xxx

Indith Sat 11-May-13 09:17:43

He sounds lovely.

Wear your ring if it will bring you comfort.

MardyBra Sat 11-May-13 09:17:55

"I cant stop crying"

I think many Mners, me included, are probably sharing a few tears with you. Your description of your DP is so lovely. I'm so sorry to hear you are going through this. Much love xx

MavisGrind Sat 11-May-13 09:18:08

Good lord Trinity, I'm so sorry to here this. I really hoped it was an old post. Thinking of you.

rubyrubyruby Sat 11-May-13 09:19:10

Jesus Trinity sad

...... not again.

I'm so sorry xxxxxx

Trinity, your description of him is lovely, what a great person he sounds. What a loss sad

Do you know where he kept it? Could you perhaps find it and wear it, do you think it could give you a little comfort.

He sounds like such a cool character.

TrinityRhino Sat 11-May-13 09:21:12

dd2 hasn't cried
I'm actually very worried about her
I'm not sure she can take it, she may just shut down

dd1 is being ever so strong for me right now
she almost collapsed with grief when I told her yesterday but she is now trying to do anything and everything I want

its so wrong that she is feeling the need to take care of me
she slept in my bed last night

the little two slept over at my close friend and neighbor
they wanted to , we let them choose what they wanted to do

MelodyBaker Sat 11-May-13 09:21:13

I am so sorry this has happened to you again. My heart goes out to you and your family.
Please keep posting and wear the ring.
He sounds like a great man.

ElectricSoftParade Sat 11-May-13 09:21:31

He sounds like a wonderful man. I am very sorry for your loss x

SanityClause Sat 11-May-13 09:21:39

Wear the ring.

You are "engaged" when you decide to get married. Which it sounds like you had decided together long ago.

Thinking of you. flowers

DearPrudence Sat 11-May-13 09:22:23

This is so dreadful. I am so sorry, I can't believe this is happening to you and your family xx

TrinityRhino Sat 11-May-13 09:22:35

I found the ring
he didn't have many places to 'hide' it <weak smile>

its a little big now
I've lost some weight since I gave up drinking
I'm hoping I can get it resized

Give the DDs time trinity
It's all such a shock at the moment, no one knows what to do or how to react.
You will all look after each other, that's all that matters.

CouthyMow Sat 11-May-13 09:22:57

Keep talking lovey, we're here.

ThenWeTakeBerlin Sat 11-May-13 09:23:59

I'm so sorry for your loss, will say a pray for you and your loved ones.

Hope you can get support IRL as well as here. Sending you strength x

I cannot add anything helpful, except to say well done for keeping such a cool head and doing compressions until the ambulance.

The manly curries made me smile.

Gigaflops Sat 11-May-13 09:24:02

Another lurker who is just so, so sad for you Trinity... Can't believe that life has been so cruel to you twice... We're all crying with you today... X

Put it on a chain around your neck for now.

Just hold them all close and get through the near future.

EmmaDale Sat 11-May-13 09:24:21

OMG - I'm so so sorry. Thinking of you and your family. x

Let your DD1 look after you - 'tis what she wants/needs to do.

What age is DD2? So unfair your kids have to go through this again. Can you be there for each other, comfort each other?

Young children can be a godsend because life just goes on for them and they force you to see that.

Is there anybody other than your kids with you?

CouthyMow Sat 11-May-13 09:24:25

I also had to check the date. I'm sorry for your loss.

Tortoise Sat 11-May-13 09:24:36

I'm so sorry you are going through this again trinity sad .

TrinityRhino Sat 11-May-13 09:24:36

I can feel your hugs
It is helping to think about him living
I wish I could erase the images of what happened yesterday afternoon
I just cant get rid of it
its hideous

He sounds so lovely. The crocs made me smile. I'm so sorry that he's gone and that you're on this shite path again. It doesn't seem fair.

Do you know where the ring is? If so go and put it on.

Right now it's all so raw.
Just get through today. There's help and counseling for yourself and the DCs but I think that's too much to take on right now.

Just look after each other for now, get through the day as best you can.

Do you have anyone with you?

What's the ring like?

Your DDs are in shock at the moment and sometimes true feelings and emotions come a little later. Some people heal by helping too.

rubyslippers Sat 11-May-13 09:25:35

I am so sorry
It must feel unbearable right now
Love and strength

Wylye Sat 11-May-13 09:25:59

I'm so so sorry for your loss, right now you don't feel like a stranger on the Internet, your description of him was lovely and I hope you can pop the ring on a necklace so you can wear it til it's resized. xxx

It will fade in time, I promise, leaving you with much happier memories of him.

On Trinity, I don't know what to say. I am crying and crying as reading your posts about your dp and you and your girls has inspired me and given me feelings of awe at your strength.

I am so, so sorry that this has happened.

I know you already know this, but we are all here for you.

TrinityRhino Sat 11-May-13 09:28:56

'unspeakably shit' is a very good description

CouthyMow Sat 11-May-13 09:30:43

This has had me in tears at how bloody unfair life can be to people.

I'm sending you more (((Hugs))). You need them.

Hug your DC's. Lots. It might 'ground' you when you are still in that shocked 'dazed' state. I found it helped me.

BumpingFuglies Sat 11-May-13 09:31:09

Trinity, I'm so sorry. I lost someone close in the very same way and I know what you mean about the images. They do fade over time, I promise.
Hugs to you, chick x

D0oinMeCleanin Sat 11-May-13 09:31:53

Oh Trin sad

I don't really know what to say. I'm so sorry for you. How unfair life is, eh?

CouthyMow Sat 11-May-13 09:32:44

I think 'unspeakably shit' is an alt description too, Trin.

StealthOfficialCrispTester Sat 11-May-13 09:33:02

What an awful shock but as others have said well done for keeping your cool and doing chest compressions
Did he have a heart condition or was this totally out of the blue?
I hope you are feeling supported - have you seen your GP/someone medical?

poachedeggs Sat 11-May-13 09:33:08

I wish there was more I could say or do, but there isn't. You and your girls are in my thoughts though.

I know your name too, and I am so, so sorry for you.

I think I would wear the ring. I don't know that it would help, but I'm sure I would want to, to feel closer to him.

One minute at a time. Do try to eat a little, and keep your fluids up.

TrinityRhino Sat 11-May-13 09:34:11

do they really fade bumping?
they have to
please tell me they do because its hideous
I cant close my eyes, I think I passed out for an hour last night
then I woke up with it all smashing me in the back of the head again
the realisation, the pain

fuck it hurts

Hellenbach Sat 11-May-13 09:34:25

So sorry to hear you are going through this awful time.
It sounds like it happened before?
How can life be so cruel?
I do hope you have people around you, it must be almost too much to cope with.
We are all here for you

crabb Sat 11-May-13 09:36:40

Trinity, he sounds wonderful. I'm sure he loved you to bits. So sorry.

DumSpiroSpero Sat 11-May-13 09:37:32

So sorry for your loss Trinity.

Look after yourself and your DC's.

He sounds like a truly lovely man. flowers

TrinityRhino Sat 11-May-13 09:38:11

he had a serious heart attack in september of last year
he had a stent put in and had damaged his heart quite a lot
he was on lots of medication but we really thought things were looking up
he was stable as it were
for a good few months after the heart attack he was in and out of hospital but then we got his meds sorted and he had finished his cardiac training sessions and was going to the local gym twice a week, his fatal heart nurse(what a name!) was happy with his stats

I just cant believe it

FayeKorgasm Sat 11-May-13 09:38:17

I'm so sorry for you and your family. thanks

StealthOfficialCrispTester Sat 11-May-13 09:39:58

No I bet you can't
Life is shit to a lot of people but to a few it is really really shit sad
I'm so so sorry. Apart from anything else I imagine this is opening up old wounds as well as the new ones.
What about his family? Are you close to them? Are they around at the moment?

MelodyBaker Sat 11-May-13 09:41:15

Look after yourself trinity. Right now, yesterday Will be so raw and painful.
Look after yourself and your children. Mn is here to listen.

PaddingtonsMarmalade Sat 11-May-13 09:41:40

oh shit - I checked the date when I saw your name. I am so, so sorry to read this and it is unspeakably shit.
love to you and your girls

CMOTDibbler Sat 11-May-13 09:41:53

Trinity, I can't believe this has happened to you - to have been blessed with two such wonderful, loving men in your life and have them taken so suddenly.

Wish I could deliver hugs in person to you and the girls, but I'll be holding you all in my thoughts in the next days, weeks, and months.

Hug dd1, hold onto her, and remember that your dp (who sounds like the cuddliest teddy bear) was proud of you for kicking the booze into touch, among so many things

rambososcar Sat 11-May-13 09:42:12

They fade, Trinity, they really do.

You're maybe going to want support and company, calm and sleep in the forthcoming days and weeks. I know how far away you are from so many of us but is there anything anyone here can do?

Do you feel you'd like to talk to your GP about a short course of sleeping tablets or about bereavement counselling and support?

(You "know" me well, btw, but under a different name. Will pm to explain).

TrinityRhino Sat 11-May-13 09:42:40

he has five adult children that I am close to but they all live far away
london, ireland, exmouth
but they are coming up soon
we wont know anything more about anything till monday
there has to be an autopsy because it was an unexpected death
I had to give a statement to the police too

his ex wife lives very close and was here last night
I've spoken about her before
she is the suicide risk that cant speak without lying

TrinityRhino Sat 11-May-13 09:44:22

he was very proud of me for giving up the booze
and the fags

Chopchopbusybusy Sat 11-May-13 09:45:08

I am so sorry trinity. Unspeakably shit indeed. I hope purplepillow can be with you soon. xx

StealthOfficialCrispTester Sat 11-May-13 09:46:18

Yes, completely agree, I bet he was very proud.
Crap seems to happen to good people, and drama to people who just want normal, uneventful, family lives sad

StealthOfficialCrispTester Sat 11-May-13 09:47:38

Avoid the ex as much as you can without being nasty, I'm sure she is grieving too but you can't deal with that now.
Obviously his DC are a different matter, I hope you can comfort each other.

Rindercella Sat 11-May-13 09:48:05

Trinity, I am so so sorry. I cannot believe this has happened to you again. To lose someone once is unbearable. For it to happen again is just cruel beyond words.

Much love to you. Please know you are in my thoughts xxx

MirandaWest Sat 11-May-13 09:48:46

I'm someone else who had to check the date of your post and hoped it could have been a nightmare sad

So sorry for you

Sonnet Sat 11-May-13 09:48:55

Life is so unfair. angry
I am so so sorry you are going through this. You and your lovely family are in my thoughts and prayers

eastendfareast Sat 11-May-13 09:49:52

Am so so sorry Trinity. This is heart breaking to read. Xx

rambososcar Sat 11-May-13 09:50:39

As Stealth says - you have your own grief and that of your children to deal with, it's not fair that you should feel under obligation to deal with someone else's, especially not an ex wife (who from the sound of it is difficult at the best of times).

Be selfish if you need to be! You and the children come first!

You mattered, mattered so much to your DP, he would surely want the same.

TSSDNCOP Sat 11-May-13 09:50:45

I'm another that date-checked. I'm so sorry. It's horrific for you to be struck by terrible tragedy again. I hope your friends can help comfort you. God bless you xx

DowntonTrout Sat 11-May-13 09:51:54

I'm sorry, I do not know your story but I have pieced it together a little from the other posts.

I do know what it is like to lose someone when their heart gives up and I understand the pain and horror of that moment. I wish I could offer you something to help take that pain away but I know I can't. There is nothing.

Instead I am sending prayers for you and your family, which is something I never do usually, but it is all I have. I hope there will be some comfort for you in time. X

Ilikethebreeze Sat 11-May-13 09:52:41

I too can confirm that they fade.

And even sharing those images with someone can help.
I didnt for a few days, but after about 5 I really really had to tell someone. I chose to tell my sister, and she was alright about me telling her the images.
It is strange what one person cannot take, and another one can.

Mutt Sat 11-May-13 09:53:54

I am so sorry Trinity.

Wishing you strength sweetheart x

Snog Sat 11-May-13 09:54:30

NervyWervy Sat 11-May-13 09:55:17

So so sorry Trinity.sad
If it helps, put the ring on, or if its too big, on a necklace so you don't lose it.

Happiestinwellybobs Sat 11-May-13 09:55:25

I am so so sorry, and sending a little prayer your way x

suchashame Sat 11-May-13 09:56:59

Words to say how earth shattering this is for you can seem inadequate to fully describe theceffect .... and words are all we have here to reach out to you and your family ... but Iike everyone else I hope i can hold your hand while you need it.

The horrific video in your mind right now will fade in time.... it may still be there but you can , when you are ready, replace it with more positive mind videos of better times. You might need rl help to do it .. but yes please hold onto that thought.

Echo others... if you can't sleep especially then get medical help... the processes you will have to go through will be hard enoughwithout hhaving to do it exhausted.

Thinking of you....

ParkerTheThief Sat 11-May-13 09:57:28

So sorry Trinity.
You and your girls are in my thoughts and prayers.

Ginformation Sat 11-May-13 09:57:32

sad so sad.
So incredibly unfair, cruel, traumatic and painful for you and your family.

The images of the event will become less intrusive. The flashbacks are your brains way of processing it. How brave of you to do chest compressions.

Big hugs to you all.

MadameOvary Sat 11-May-13 09:57:59

What rambo said. You need to focus on you and the DC now.
Do you want to keep talking about him? There will be so much love and laughter and happiness he gave you, it will overcome the painful images.

HumphreyCobbler Sat 11-May-13 09:58:04

Oh I am so sorry to read this. I checked the post to see the date too.

I am so sorry for your terrible loss.

Velve Sat 11-May-13 10:00:30

I'm so, so sorry. I don't have any other words or anything useful to say. sad
You are in my thoughts.

Charleymouse Sat 11-May-13 10:02:06

Trinity it physically hurts and the images you have will fade. I promise.

My dad died of a massive heart attack 8 years ago and I checked his pulse and his breathing and luckily someone else started the chest compressions. Unfortunately he did die there was nothing that could be done. The images of his death are still with me but they have faded and you and I know we did all we could, so take comfort in that.

They will be with you in the immediate aftermath when you shut your eyes but you can replace them if you think really hard about the good times and his face laughing and gradually these images will replace the ones of yesterday. So so sorry for your loss. Much love CM xxx

Oh Darling, so, so very sorry.

Life is too fucking unfair.

Rage at the sky a bit my love, it will help. Then take a single, tiny step forward, just one. We're all here for you

Praying for you and the DC

TheCrackFox Sat 11-May-13 10:10:07

Trinity - life has been unspeakably cruel to you. I am so very sorry. Xx

blondieminx Sat 11-May-13 10:10:28

Trinity I am so very sorry to hear of your loss. No-one should have to bear the unspeakable shittiness of everything you've been through in the past few years. We are all here to hold your hand.

To keep your head and be able to do the chest compressions was a really great thing and you gave him the best possible chance. You should give yourself huge credit for that - a lot of people wouldn't have known what to do. You did everything you could.

Cuddle your children lots, and push your GP hard for family bereavement counselling on Monday. In the meantime be specific about the help you need (meal cooking, someone to stay with the littlies on Monday while you deal with things etc) when people offer.

<big squeezy hug>

oh no i checked date to am so sorry life is so fucking cruel

UltimateDetermination Sat 11-May-13 10:14:31

Trinity, I'm so sorry to hear this. I'm mainly a lurker but remember your backstory. I remember being so delighted for you when you met DP. I'm devasted that this has now happened - but also glad for the happiness that you had with him (hope that makes sense). Be kind to yourself

I, too, had to check the date on this thread. So very sorry Trinity. You've had an unreasonable amount to bear over the last few years. It just reinforces how randomly cruel life is.

I'm so so sorry for another loss. Tiny, baby steps. You can do this. You know you can.

Very much love and lots of handholding. XXX

TigerFeet Sat 11-May-13 10:15:44

This is just beyond shocking. I have tears and an ache in my chest reading your words.
I can't begin to imagine how you are feeling, it must quite other-worldly.
Your life sounds full of love, I hope that will help you rally your strength - yet again - oh god, utter shit indeed.

Portofino Sat 11-May-13 10:37:24

Oh Trinity, I so very, very sorry. Many hugs to you and your girls xxx

I didn't know your backstory but I worked it out by reading all the thread. That is the first time I've actually read a thread before posting.

I'm so so sorry Trinity. As everyone else says if you need to be selfish and put yourself and DCs first so be it.

The image will fade eventually and you will only have memories of the fun times you had with him. He sounds amazing, well apart from the crocs. No one can pull crocs off!

Hugs from me to you and your family xx

Oh Lord, Trinity, it's desperately unfair that this has happened to you of all people (obviously unfair whoever it happened to, but extra specially unfair this way). You and gecko and the other two girls will be in my thoughts.

Gobbolinothewitchscat Sat 11-May-13 10:38:08

Oh my God, I assumed this was an old thread. I nearly keeled over when I saw the date.

Please tell us if there is anything we can do, Trinity

Big hugs to you and your girls

Mouseface Sat 11-May-13 10:38:42


I am so, so, so, sorry to read this thread, I can't believe that life can be so fucking cruel to someone who has already been to hell and back.

Especially after all that you went through with DH.

Life is so twisted at times.

Do you need anything sweetheart?

I mean anything at all? Practical help? Are the DCs with you this morning?

Sorry, I've not read back, I've just seen this and wanted to post.

You know where I am, any time. Even if you just need to shout, scream, cry, yell, sob, anything. Please get in touch xx

I'm very sorry that this has happened to you all sweetheart sad

You are doing all you can for the girls, you are so much stronger than last time ( never thought I'd be saying those words)

Dd1 needs to be there for you, it will be helping her, dd's2 & 3 are coping as best they know but we will be there for them as their grief is expressed

Try focusing on the good images from your time together (there are loads) dp loved you and if he had a choice he'd still be with you

Be strong darling and remember we all love you xxx

SirBoobAlot Sat 11-May-13 10:45:46

Trinity and I have spoken this morning elsewhere and I know you're facing difficulties atm (Trin didn't say what and I didn't ask, there's been no breach of your confidentiality I must add). I just want to say from someone who can't physically get to Trinity to give her a hug or help, that I'm glad you can. Take care of each other. x

StoicButStressed Sat 11-May-13 11:37:41

Oh my god. Trinity - I don't know you but I do know THIS (& I'm sorry this is long but am weeping for you and I am crap at doing 'short' at best of times)

I PROMISE YOU THOSE IMAGES WILL FADE Please please PLEASE know that even if it doesn't feel like it. I lost someone beloved 12 weeks ago tomorrow and the night before they died was horrific beyond horrific - stuff you never want to see or hear and etched into your brain, feeling like that will be all you'd ever remember and just wishing was some magic mind tippex to wipe them out.

12 weeks on and THEY HAVE ALREADY FADED angel. Lying if said totally, but they are NOT now the first ones I think of or wake up with right in front of my eyes again. I can now remember other, happier, things too. If I can give you ANYTHING, it is that certainty that yours will too. I know it's scant comfort right now, but it is true.

I am just so so sorry for your loss, especially since it is obvious from above you have already - unbelievablysad - faced this once. But please believe the beautifully vivid picture of your man that you described below WILL be the one that overcomes the shock and trauma of last night's images. Just (((hugs))) to you and DDs, and know that this man you write of so beautifully cleary loved you very, very, much and that gift of being loved that way and those memories will never be taken from you. Sx

he was a big strong man
he had a red hat he wore all the time
he used to call his crocs 'melly mels' cause we once saw a picture of mel gibson in crocs and he was trying to convince me that crocs were cool cause mel gibson wore them and I fancied mel gibson when he was younger

he loved curry, he used to spend hours in the kitchen making curries from scratch
really hot and tasty
I used to taste them, they were really tasty but waaay too hot for me
he used to love to sweat whilst eating a curry

he loved fishing, the sea, nature
we used to go and collect the flatfish from the salmon nets in the sea outside my house

he was so loving and kind but in private

I am so sorry Trinity.

I can't believe how unfair life is being to you and yours.

We are all here for you. xxx

CheerfulYank Sat 11-May-13 11:43:29

Oh God Trinity, no. My eyes flew to the date as well. So, so unfair.

He sounds lovely and I'm just so very sorry.

Eskino Sat 11-May-13 11:44:54

Sweet Trinny. You don't deserve this sad

IsaacCox Sat 11-May-13 11:45:21

I'm so so sorry sad xx

ipswichwitch Sat 11-May-13 11:47:24

Oh trinity I am so sorry. Life is unbearably shit sometimes. The same happened to DM when my dad died of a heart attack in front of her. Those awful images do indeed fade with time, and she can now remember all the wonderful times with him.

Let your DD look after you, she wants to and it will help her too. I shall forever think of crocs as melly mels, and I'll bet he truly rocked them.
Sending love and hugs x

IcanandIwill Sat 11-May-13 11:49:08

I'm so so sorry to hear this. You don't deserve this again. Having been there once myself, twice is beyond comprehension. Sending you love and hoping you can find some peace x

Helpyourself Sat 11-May-13 11:49:11

Apparently playing Tetris, or something else it, bubble pop or sudoku stops the memories 'embedding'. No idea if it works but it can't do any harm. sad

Also thinking of you -you and your family are in my thoughts. flowers

TrinityRhino Sat 11-May-13 11:56:35

thankyou everyone
I ashamed to say I just spent 69p on candy crush saga to refill my lives so I can keep playing

I've always been a gamer
its easy non thinking stuff but I keep running out of lives

I've eaten half a sandwich

my lovely neighbor has been around to tell me the little ones are wanting to stay with her just now but they wanted the jam we have and the bread so she came to get it

I've taken some paracetemol
I'm in bed watching crap on youtube with dd1
I feel shaky and sore
I keep crying
I cant stop seeing it

Thumbwitch Sat 11-May-13 11:57:22

Oh Trinity, I'm so very very very sorry to hear this, you poor darling, that's just so unfair! On you and your girls. I'm crying here for you - I can't believe it.
My grandad had the same thing happen with my Nanna, she also died - and I can also tell you that the images do fade. Times vary from person to person but they do fade, there will come a time when you would have to actively try to recall it (should you want to, which is extremely unlikely).

((((((hugs)))))) for you - I am so sad for you.

StealthOfficialCrispTester Sat 11-May-13 11:58:44

You poor thjng. Do whatever it takes to get through the next few days. Youll then be able to focus a little. For now youre doing great.

Oh God Trinity. There are no words. I couldn't believe it was you posting. I had to check the date too. I am so so sorry.

Keep posting. You know it will help.

toffeelolly Sat 11-May-13 12:01:12

ThistleDown Sat 11-May-13 12:04:27

Oh Trinity, I am so sorry that you have lost your DP. I'm another who had to check the date and was horrified to realise you're having to go through all the pain again.

My thoughts are with you and the DCs x

LIZS Sat 11-May-13 12:04:32

I'm so sorry . How cruel sad . But you are strong , you know you can be again but give yourself time.

LEMisdisappointed Sat 11-May-13 12:11:13

TRINITY RE CANDY CRUSH are you playing on facebook?? if you are you can get new lives by watching the adds, where you go to the screen where it says you don't have enough lives and to ask friends, if you click the cross on that, it gives you the option to watch an add to get a new life - they range from 30 seconds to a few minutes - i let the add run and come on here grin

Don't feel guilty, you are in shock, candy crush is a good way of not thinking and thats what you need to do right now. Did your DP play games?

So sorry for your loss trinity
I wish their was something I could say to make it even a tinier but better .

Thinking of you and your family x

TrinityRhino Sat 11-May-13 12:18:38

dp was the complete opposite of a gamer. managing to work out how to record and playback things on the sky plus box was about as techie as he got smile

venusandmars Sat 11-May-13 12:25:10

Oh Trinity, so so sad to hear this.

Purplepillow is right though - you are much stronger. Keep remembering how proud dp was of you and let those positive memories help you. xx

MABS Sat 11-May-13 12:35:00

all my love x

AmberLeaf Sat 11-May-13 12:35:08

Re CandyCrush, there is an add on that gives you unlimited lives, I had it but accidently wiped it and cant remember what its called.

If any one else knows what it is please post it. You can play on for ages with it you get 99+ lives and all the bonuses.

Wylye Sat 11-May-13 12:36:05

I wondered if it might help to write what happened down? If you can get it all clear in your head and write down exactly what happened, maybe your brain will stop trying to replay it constantly?
I hope you can get some rest when the shock starts to wear off, you must be beyond exhausted. xxx

NomDeClavier Sat 11-May-13 12:36:50

Oh trin I am so, so sorry sad I had a horrible sick feeling when I saw the date and you as the OP. This is so fucking unfair after everything.

Your DP was a wonderful man. Just hold on to those memories.

Rowlers Sat 11-May-13 12:52:50

Your DP sounds lovely, Trinity.
I wish you love and strength to get through this awful time.

Fucking hell Trin sad

My head couldn't compute that, I had to keep looking at the date...I was so sure it couldn't be right, so christ alone knows where your head is at.

Jesus wept life's a bitch at times - so bloody unfair.

Please remember how incredibly proud of you he was for giving up the booze & the fags!! Wear the ring to remind yourself of that - you don't want to go back there again my love.

You don't feel it right now, but you are strong, very strong. I know you will cope - because like all Mum's - you just bloody well have to, no matter what!

Lots of love & strength
Hugest of huge hugs

Another one who knows some of your backstory and also thought it was an old post until I triple checked the date.

I don't know what else to say except I can't believe life can be so cruel again.

Just done a double take and checked the date. You don't know me, but I'm so sorry this has happened to you, again. Have some flowers. Don't rush yourself and accept ANY help offered x

RhondaJean Sat 11-May-13 15:04:57

Oh trin we have spoken before but I don't know if you know me - I saw this in sainsburys cafe and I had to come home and log in again and read your post several times and check the date several times before it made any sense.

So I can start to imagine your head. Your two older girls are the same ages as my DDs too.

I am so angry you are having to go through this again. It's so unfair. I wish I could help somehow but I can't.

My mil's partner collapsed and died in front of her at home two years ago. It was a particularly gruesome death for several reasons, and she did CPR and called teh ambulance and everything you did. DH took her to see him afterwards when he was in the undertakers; she wasn't sure whether to go but she told me she was so glad she had, to see him at rest and after the dreadful things she remembered to have something else to replace that with.

I hope when you are ready you can go see your DP too and replace some of the things that are in your head right now.

Love and hugs from Scotland xxx


Trinity sad


I'm so sorry that you're having to do this again.

Big hugs to all of you and have a duvet day (or two) this weekend.

why not take the kids somewhere different for a couple of days? until you're ready to cope?

MNPin2013 Sat 11-May-13 15:08:03

Oh Trinity I wish I could do more than offer words on a screen.

DP sounds so lovely.

Well done at besting the booze and fags, that is a living tribute to DP.

Take care of yourself and reach out to the bereavement services for you and the DC.

Web hugs to you all.

maxpower Sat 11-May-13 15:10:15

This is such a tragedy. I'm so very sorry for your loss.

Leverette Sat 11-May-13 15:11:46

Oh my god (((Trinity)))

I am so, so sorry your wonderful big bear has gone so suddenly.

Please, please speak with your GP urgently with regards to being provided with some urgent support for profound psychological trauma - bystanders have enormous issues in processing experiences of witnessing events such as this; it is much much more important to get help for you when not only have you lost your partner, but that you were personally giving hands on first aid.

You are so strong to have done that - many people freeze in the horror of it. But your love for him directed you to do all you could, you couldn't have done any more.


Hulababy Sat 11-May-13 15:12:56

Oh god, how awful. I am so sorry for you and your family trinity. Life is so unfair. Thinking of you all x

So sorry for your loss Trinity. I couldn't believe it was your name on the thread. So unfair.

Here now Trinity gone for a sleep, am playing with the kids!

Almostfifty Sat 11-May-13 15:20:36

Your name jumped out at me. I couldn't believe it. So sorry for your loss.

I too have had that traumatic time when someone special died in front of me. You do eventually forget, but it takes a while. You have to replace it with a happy memory and keep doing so every time you focus on it.

So sorry you're going through this again.

Hassled Sat 11-May-13 15:24:19

I've been out and about but I just can't stop thinking about how fucking unfair this is and how sorry I am - for you and the children.

I remember a thread of yours when you first said you were seeing someone new, that he was a friend of your DH's - he was so obviously very special to you. I do hope you can hang on to the happiness he gave you (and that you gave him) - I do hope there will be some comfort in knowing that you made these last few years very happy for him.

Grockle Sat 11-May-13 15:24:30

You were blessed to have 2 loving, caring men in your life, remember the good times.

It's true my face is wet with tears for you & all the unfairness you've been through & I wish there was more I could do xx

MissLurkalot Sat 11-May-13 15:45:45

Trinity, I'm so sorry....

I held my father in my arms as he died six years ago. I struggled terribly with such dark, desperate images of that night... Seeing the panic in his eyes as he drifted away... I was terrified of the images and they truly haunted me... But, not for long.... They faded, quicker than I thought they would. I felt so alone, so wretched and so very 'desperate'... That's the only words I can use to describe how I felt.

I feel nothing but the deepest love for my lovely Dad when I think of that night now.. All the panic, desperation feelings have completely gone, they faded over a few months. I am so honoured I was there for him, to hold him when he went.

The images you have will fade Trinity... x

Wolfcub Sat 11-May-13 15:48:01

Oh I'm so sorry Trinity sad

What an awful, awful thing to have happened to you all again.

((Hugs for you and DC))

My DF collapsed and died at home four years ago and I found the same, the images and replaying the scene over and over and the what ifs.

They definitely do ease its just your brains way of dealing with such a terrible trauma.
I still can't think about that day or see an ambulance without having to divert my thoughts away or I cry but its less often I think of it.

Be kind to yourselves.

Will light a candle for Your DP tonight


fledtoscotland Sat 11-May-13 16:17:21

Glad you are there Giraffes. I couldn't believe what Trinity went through before and now again. My heart goes out to her and the DC. Life's a bitch x

Trinity, I was horrified to realise that the OP is you and like everyone else i had to check the date many times. There are no words, just deep sympathy and sorrow for you and your girls.
Glad to know you have some wonderful RL support in the shape of Giraffes and Purplepillow. Please take care of yourself. With love xx

I don't come on here much but a mutual friend pointed me here; I have been trying to message you but my PC is playing up and simply page reloads.

If there is anything that we can do- just holler. Anything at all. A chat, anything practical, a weekend away; just ask and I will do what I can to help.

Trumpton Sat 11-May-13 16:44:01

Oh darling . I am so sad to hear about your Big Bear , your croc wearing , red hatted man, who loved curries , fishing and you and the girls

You and your girls have been through so much . There are no words enough to express how I feel for you. But if I can help in anyway ( you know me from some years ago when DGS was nearly one year old ) then please, please let me know.

In the meantime take heart and courage in the love that you two had. The terror and images will pass and the sweet memories return Xx

Aw shit. I don't k ow what to say, I am so so sorry sad

ihearttc Sat 11-May-13 16:46:08

I cannot even find the words to explain how so very sorry I am.

Life is so unbelievably cruel.

Please take a tiny bit of comfort in knowing that there are hundreds of MN's all over the country that are wanting to help in any small way we can even if its just to listen xxx

Allthingspretty Sat 11-May-13 16:46:44

Oh Trinity, sweetheart. There are no helpful words I can offer you, I'm so sorry this has happened - if I was nearby I would be round there like a shot, can only offer you a virtual shoulder to lean and cry on, a hand to hold and an ear to listen.

I'm going abroad in a fews days so will be around at odd hours if you have trouble sleeping and need to talk in the night.

Sending you love and wishing you all the strength to deal with this.


Shodan Sat 11-May-13 16:53:08

Yet another one here who had to check the date.

You don't know me but I too know your backstory.

I am so very, very sorry that you're in this dark place again.

Just one breath at a time.

Christ. I don't know what else to say.

Mouseface Sat 11-May-13 16:53:52

Giraffes - you are ace, you really are, keeping some 'fun' in the girl's day is just brilliant, after all of this, they must be confused as to whether they can carry on or not.

Should they sit and cry or can they be themselves, do what they normally would be doing on a Saturday afternoon? Will Trin be upset if they're not sad all of the time.............. gah, it's just so unfair and feckin awful! I know she wouldn't be upset with them, not at all, not ever.

But this isn't the first time is it? sad I know they were younger then, If only we could turn back time, or all had a magic wand, or could stop bad things happening to nice people. If only. sad

Pillow amazes me. I hope her mum is okay, she has so much on and yet is giving back too. How wonderful. smile

I'm glad you guys are there xx

I'm so pleased that MN exists and is the place that it is. The support is unconditional when things like this happen. It blows me away.

I am so, so sorry Trinity sad thanks xxx

Bowlersarm Sat 11-May-13 16:55:18

So so sorry Trinity. My thoughts are with you and your family.

captainmummy Sat 11-May-13 17:24:50

Trinity - so sad.

Please believe there is nothingmore you could have done.


Truly awful, I can't imagine what you are going through ((hug))

Don't try to get away from your emotions, feel them all in their entirety, grief, anger, happiness (at nice memories), sadness etc. Don't fight it.
Sleep/eat when you can. You are probably on auto pilot right now anyway.
Ask for help if you need to

Giraffes, you are amazing! An angel with invisible wings flowers

Yes love, they really do. I know it's all you can see just now. I promise you, you will replace those images with others in time. You will also be able to relive those images in a more detached way.

I'm so sorry, I'm wondering if I can help, like all the others. Where are you? Can you get someone to sift through all these messages for you?

Ledkr Sat 11-May-13 19:23:57

Will they be with you all night trinity? How are the girls?

So sorry for your loss Trinity xx flowers

I don't know you but couldn't not post. I am so sorry for you and how desolate you must be feeling. There is nothing truer than after a bereavement than that you need to take a day at a time, sometimes just focus on the next hour. Get through the days and gradually the pain will ease. It will not change how much you love him or miss him but things will get easier and he will not want you to hurt. Screw MN not liking it, I'm sending you the biggest cuddle in the world. Thinking of you x

Another oldie here who had to check the date. Can't believe you and your family are going through this again.

Be gentle with yourself. Just breathe and hug and cry. Know that we are all here for you. Sending hugs. xx

I don't normally post on these kind of threads as I don't feel I have much to offer in the way of having any knowledge of bereavement of a loved one (I know I'm in the lucky minority). I always feel its best left to the people that can advise and say the right thing, based on their own experiences.

But........reading that thread title then checking the date, and knowing your story.......I want to cry with you. Now i REALLY dont know what words to say so - [hugs]

And then [more hugs].


Jidget Sat 11-May-13 20:06:44

Trinity you don't know me but I've been here a while and know your story.

Oh my goodness, poor poor you and your poor poor children. For this to happen twice is just unspeakable.

Oh, what a manly looking man - you will have lots of great images of him in your head.
I am sorry that just now the memories of yesterday will be very vivid, but as somebody else had already said, they will fade and the far more important memories of you and him and your family will be what will stay with you.

chocolatespiders Sat 11-May-13 21:16:21

So sorry to hear this awful news Trinity. I have seen lots of your posts over the years and cant believe what a cruel hand you have been dealt.

Hope time heals for you and enjoy wearing your special ring.

FeralStreep Sat 11-May-13 21:16:41

Long-term member, serial name-changer here, who knows your story and thinks of you often.

I can't believe it. 'Sorry' doesn't cover it, really.

Thank goodness you and your girls have each other, and that you have wonderful friends and that indomitable spirit.

Bless you. Bless you all.

lottieandmia Sat 11-May-13 21:16:47

I don't know what to say.

It's just so unbelievably shit.

I'm so sorry, sending my love to you all x

He looks like a real entire giant, a proper mans man. I'm so sorry you're going through this again Trinity, truly I am.

If life had been a little different for me, I'd have been there in Annan too, and would have held your hand for real along with Giraffe and Pillows. I was offered a job with D&G social care department a few years back. DH and I were trying desperately to buy a house in Beattock, nr Moffat, and we just couldn't make it all come together in time and it all fell apart.

Next time we come to Craigielands country park in Moffat, I shall think of you and toast a marshmallow on the campfire to Cliff.

Be kind to yourself sweetheart and try to eat, keep your fluids up and rest as much as you can.

Much love xx

Sorry sad that should be a gentle giant - sod my stupid fat fingers sad x

SlinkyB Sat 11-May-13 22:38:12

The only thing I can think of to do is light a candle for you sad

LuckyLuckyMe Sat 11-May-13 23:35:26

My God Trinity I just can't believe it. So so sad for you and your DC. He looked like such a nice man and even though I can't even imagine what you are going through I hope you can look at the photos and your engagement ring and remember how kind and great he was.

EmpressOfTheSevenOceans Sun 12-May-13 02:18:59

my head hurts again
my arms and shoulders still ache sad

Almostfifty Sun 12-May-13 05:14:32

I'm not surprised you ache lovey. You will ache for a long time, but you of all people know this rawness will go in time.

Just one breath at a time.

Cristiane Sun 12-May-13 05:17:08

Good morning Trinity
I am so sorry to hear your news
Well done for sleeping a bit
I have no useful words. It is so unfair what has happened to you
We are all here for you

giraffescantleavemn Sun 12-May-13 05:17:18

Glad you got a wee bit of sleep. I think dd2 needed that eh? She was too hyper as the day went on.


TrinityRhino Sun 12-May-13 05:38:59

yeah without a doubt giraffes
was about 10pm
inconsolable for a while but then calmed even giggled some with purples dd1 then a good slound sleep
the two little ones are still sound asleep next to me
ive taken paracetamol and my Ads
trying not to out the telky on so as nit to wake them
candy crushing

TrinityRhino Sun 12-May-13 05:39:48

trying not to put the telly on so as not to wake them .........I meant

giraffescantleavemn Sun 12-May-13 05:45:10

Is dd1 in house or she staying somewhere else?

distraction candy crushing is good, something to focus on.

Can you take ibuprofen in a couple of ours too if para not helping enough?

TrinityRhino Sun 12-May-13 05:47:36

dd1 is in her bedroom
ive quietly checked on her
shes still sleeping
I was thinking of ibuprofen in a couple of hours but I should eat before I take them shouldn't I
dont much feel like eating
you didnt get much sleep giraffes, are you ok?

Morning, am up with bloody pregnancy insomnia but have been thinking of you.

Do you have a smart phone that you can watch TV on? I often watch I player or 4 on demand through earphones on phone to save waking anyone up.

Take something a little stringer for the pain too. God knows the emotional pain must be crippling, you don't need the reminder of your shoulders and arms hurting too,

Have a milky drink with the ibuprofen, even a chocolate nesquick will drop them irritating your tummy.

hf128219 Sun 12-May-13 05:50:53

Trinity, I am up and thinking of you x

TrinityRhino Sun 12-May-13 05:59:17

thanks everyone
yes phone can do telly
good thinking
milky drink might be able to manage that
your thoughts mean so much

giraffescantleavemn Sun 12-May-13 06:04:08

I am fine ty I fell asleep soon after getting in (was some road works on way back so down to hard shoulder etc so took a bit longer) and accidently left light on so when I woke I got up to switch it off and thought I would just check on you...and you were up too! smile I will prob go back to sleep in an hour or so. Shift not until later.

Remember there are mint clubs in the kitchen!

TrinityRhino Sun 12-May-13 06:12:43

You are in so many people's thought as you make this long hard journey . X

echt Sun 12-May-13 07:13:02

So sorry, Trinity/ Like others I did a double take, thinking it was a zombie thread.

Beyond sad.


BrokenBananaTantrum Sun 12-May-13 07:21:12

Sending hugs. I can't believe this has happened. So so sorry. Will be thinking of you. I like the advice from Trumpton

Another one who's seen your story before. He sounds wonderful. You were wonderful - you did everything right and he would be so proud of you.

MelodyBaker Sun 12-May-13 07:59:06

Baby steps trinity, one foot in front of the other and don't forget to breathe.
You should never had to go through this once let alone twice sad

Thinking of you and sending love you you and your family xx

BoffinMum Sun 12-May-13 08:19:26

Trin darling, is there anything practical we might be able to help with?

omg Trin, how unfair can life be... yes another that had to do a double take on the thread date sad

I'm so sorry for your loss, but well done on being so strong. Much love and hugs.

BumpingFuglies Sun 12-May-13 08:25:59

Sorry am so far away Trinity, like Boffin says, can we do anything practical? X

Nectar Sun 12-May-13 08:26:40

I was so shocked when I saw this Trinity, so sorry for you and your girls. You don't know me but I joined Mumsnet around the time you lost your first husband, and remember it all. SO unfair that you're going through it again. xx

StoicButStressed Sun 12-May-13 08:32:03

Trinity - thoughts are still with you.thanks Am glad to hear DD2 was able to properly cry yesterday though cannot imagine your pain at feeling their pain on top of your own (certain you'll KWIM?) but know openly grieving is by far the best option.sad Cruse site has a great list of resources/advice not just for you, but also for DCs and by age, it was invaluable to me for all my DS's when my Mum died but esp. for DS3(11) re his 'age-appropriate' reactions/school refusal etc.

I'm sorry. It feels a pretty pathetic offering in terms of help in this tsunami of just wrongness you are now all in, but it is the only thing I can think of that I can offer in terms of help. Well that and sending more big hugs and love. Thinking of you and so so grateful you have MNers with you.

Photos are beautifulsmile - DP's spirit and laughter and the very obvious fact he had so much love for the girls shines through in them. I am aching for you my lovely but also proud you managed to have a shower - is a massive fucking win.smile Sx

Tiredtrout Sun 12-May-13 08:32:05

Thinking of you today trinity, hope you are getting some support and at least a bit of sleep. He sounded like a lovely man.

BrainSurgeon Sun 12-May-13 08:32:57

{{{hugs}}} from far away... I can't begin to imagine how this must feel, but I am very sad for you and the children
Your are such a brave person and this is so beyond unfair. I wish I could say or do something to help sad

MsInterpret Sun 12-May-13 08:49:57

Trinity, so so sorry to hear this tragic news. We are here for you now and in the time to come but yes, you need some RL support - is anyone on their way?

MsInterpret Sun 12-May-13 08:52:23

Sorry didn't realise thread began yesterday.

Love and strength to you and the family. X

Salbertina Sun 12-May-13 08:58:10

Gosh, Trinity, have chatted to you many times over the years (different names).

I am so very sorry to hear about dp's death- he sounds so lovely in the picture you paint of him, the big strong man in his red hat. I hope this image and his evident kind love for you stays with you somehow to bring you comfort.

GladbagsGold Sun 12-May-13 08:58:38

I'm so so sorry. Sending much love and hugs.

JulesJules Sun 12-May-13 09:00:47

I could hardly believe that this was you. I'm so so sorry.

K8Middleton Sun 12-May-13 09:02:52

How awfully tragic and unfair. I'm so very sorry.

BewitchedBotheredandBewildered Sun 12-May-13 09:35:52

You were my first thought when I woke up this morning.
Good to hear that you had some sleep, and it's comforting to know that you are wearing his ring.
Well done having a shower and triple well done for staying off the fags and booze.
He looks lovely and you are amazing.
More big (((hugs))) from sunny Brighton.

ChestyNut Sun 12-May-13 10:10:25

Just checking in.
Sending love this morning.

Have you some company today? ( apart from the DCs)

Mouseface Sun 12-May-13 10:10:49

Trinity morning lovely.

I'm glad the girls got some sleep and DD1 let it all out, bless her.

Yes to milk, mint clubs, anything to line you stomach before the ibuprofen sweetheart. 4 hourly for paracetamol, no more than 4 doses in 24 hours, and 6 hourly for ibuprofen, again no more than 3/4 lots in 24 hours.

Yay for the shower!

Trin - If all you do today is hug your girls and breathe, maybe eat a little, then so be it. Nothing else needs to be done. Everything will happen in due course and the saddest thing about those last few words is that you already know. sad

I have no words of wisdom, only love and kindness to send to you all through the interweb.

Giraffes - I'm glad you got some sleep you absolute star, your selflessness is so overwhelming. xx

Pillow - I hope you are okay too. xx

I know that the practical things will be taken care of for you Trin, like calling the school to them know about the girls not being in, that sort of thing but please say if there is anything that I can do to help, or anyone else. I know you have lots of support up there, and I'm an almost in Wales Mouse but just say it and it's done okay?

I don't expect you to answers my posts to you, there are so many! blush

I'm was thinking of asking MNHQ (if someone hasn't already) if they would let this thread run past the 1000 limit so you don't have to start a new one, would that be okay? Or shall I not?

I don't want to step on anyone's toes or try to take over your thread.

Much love to you all xxx

ShowOfHands Sun 12-May-13 10:17:47

Oh my darling Trin. I can't 'do' much but I can come and join the limitless support people are pulling together for you.

You are so, so loved you know? By your big, beautiful girls and your family and friends and a million MNers, FBers and Twitterers (Twits?), all of whom can't fucking believe that you or your girls have to go through this again.

People say a lot of stuff about only special people being taken or crap making you stronger and only the really brave have to suffer etc etc and the way I see it, it's a load of bollocks. There is no justice or fairness or reason to it. The only pattern is that more bad things happen to good people even when they've already weathered a mountain of bad stuff and finally come out the other side smiling. It is just what it is and it's unspeakable.

When my SIL died, my brother was there. When my Grandad died, my Grandma was there. Both saw things which seemed etched onto their retinas. They couldn't close their eyes or dream about anything else and what they saw, the details were horrifying. BUT I promise promise promise you that it fades and quicker than you might think right now. Those bits sort of become like the bad dreams and quietly become unreal. I think what happens is the real stuff, the big, bright stuff which made the person you're grieving, is better and bolder than the hideousness of what you saw. So in the end you only remember them and the funny things, the quirks, the curry and the crocs. Your brain will heal and gather up those good bits for you to focus on. In the meantime, you lean and lean and lean on the people around you, pull your girls towards you and know that we're all here.

I'm thinking about you Trin.

MofM Sun 12-May-13 10:34:33

Trin, (it's MoM - I'll think of a better name if I decide I'm staying)

You were on my mind as I woke this morning. I know there is nothing that can be said to make this any better or easier. Just know that there are people thinking of you and they will hold you up with that famous MN love in the days to come and the days/weeks/months afterwards.

Lots of love xxxxx

Indith Sun 12-May-13 10:34:59

Shower sounds good. Glad you have had some lovely RL support. Thinking of you and the girls today.

Trumpton Sun 12-May-13 10:50:06

Darling , I have THIS printed out in my box of memories. I found it after my Dad died and it resonated with me although I have never been in your nightmare position. Have a read and print it out and give it to everybody.

Sorry if it isnt right for you but the words might help.

BumpingFuglies Sun 12-May-13 11:01:34

Well said showofhands
Kind of what I meant but didn't say nearly so well x

StoicButStressed Sun 12-May-13 11:30:16

Mouseface Would second this:

'I'm was thinking of asking MNHQ (if someone hasn't already) if they would let this thread run past the 1000 limit so you don't have to start a new one, would that be okay? Or shall I not?'

If in doubt, you could check with Purple or Giraffe but it does seem to me to be a very practical idea and I can't imagine anyone in any way taking offence at it. Think it's a very practical and very sweet thoughtful thing to think ofthanks

Thirding the past 1000 limit.

Anyone know how to request it? Report to HQ?

Mouseface Sun 12-May-13 11:40:03

I've asked MNHQ smile xx

Mouseface Sun 12-May-13 11:40:34

And yes, I reported my post with the suggestion in to them.

shockers Sun 12-May-13 12:09:37

Trinity, you lost your DH not long after I joined MN. The way you managed to articulate your feelings, the support you were offered, and accepted, from people who were touched by your honesty and vulnerability, struck a chord with me. I silently rejoiced for you when your life took a huge upturn and you met DP. I love your funny, upbeat posts... you have given a lot of hope to a lot of people. Even on this thread, the image of your lovely big bear in his melly mels and red hat made me smile through the tears.

I am praying that those images that torment you now, will fade and that all you will be left with are your wonderful memories. As I read what you wrote about him, I felt I was alongside you, looking for flatfish with the sea breeze in our faces, what lovely times you must have had.

I send you love and pray for strength and peace for you, your family, his grown up children and your wonderful friends who are there to support you. xxx

borninastorm Sun 12-May-13 12:22:15

I'm so very sorry Trinity and so sad.
Life can be so very shit far too often.
You are your girls are in my thoughts.

I am glad you got some sleep. And that DD2 cried - sad but healthy IYKWIM.

Yes, do just breathe and put one foot in front of the toher just now.
Remember to eat, even if you don't feel like it. Grief is hard work and needs fuel.

The photos are beautiful - the scenes they depict are going to be your memories. In time.

Much love x.

fuzzpig Sun 12-May-13 13:36:18

Oh god sad

yet another one here who checked the date and just can't believe this is new. life is just so horribly cruel. I'm so, so sorry.

Your DP sounds completely wonderful, and I am glad that he brought joy into your lives, and you brought joy to his too, I am so sorry it was so shortlived, but the joy will live on. Your description made me smile, and one day you will all be smiling again too.

Rest in peace, teddy bear in a crocodile suit xxx

InkleWinkle Sun 12-May-13 13:45:18

Nobody needs you or expects you to answer individual posts.
Just read through from time to time to remind yourself that every one cares about you.

Still thinking of you today, Trin.

I hope this thread is bringing you some tiny scrap of comfort in your grief. xx

Thumbwitch Sun 12-May-13 14:03:26

Just checking in to see how you are today Trin - hope the aching shoulders and arms are starting to ease, but if not, get some Deep Heat or something on them.
Glad Giraffes and Purple were able to be there with you - they are both absolute Stars and deserve many thanks.
So relieved that DD2 has been able to let some of her grief out too - holding it in is worse than otherwise.

So many (((hugs))) for you all - your Cliff was a true gent, a wonderful man. xxx

chipmonkey Sun 12-May-13 14:11:36

Trin, just wanted to say that the horror of those memories does fade. We had similar with dd, CPR and ambulance and for a while, when I thought of dd, that nightmare was all I saw. But now, when I think of her, I think of her the way she was before that day, IYKWIM.

You can do this. Keep the faith for your dp and stay off the booze and fags, he would want that for you. I know at times like that, our first instinct can be to reach for the wine but it is a depressant and doesn't help in the long run

Life has been horribly shit to you, Trin but you always come back fighting xxx

Gobbolinothewitchscat Sun 12-May-13 14:18:44

trinity - just popping in to see how you are today.

I was thinking of you last night and remembered a very funny thread you started about a discussion that you and your DP were having about the practicalities and possibilities of eating a cow washed up on the beach. It made me grin a lot and my DH.

Your DP sounds like a wonderful and loving man - from your description of him here and on your other threads on MN.

Trinity, I am so sorry for your loss.
((((((( I can't think of anything to say, so I'll send you a hug instead)))))

DonkeysDontRideBicycles Sun 12-May-13 15:49:45

You don't know me, am one of those on MN who sees your name and thinks "Ah, Trinity", now so very sorry for your loss.

ClaraOswald Sun 12-May-13 15:59:30

Still here, Trinity.x

You don't know me either, and I cannot think of anything to say but just so you know there's another one here.

I am one of life's practical people - you've got great support around you but is there anything else you need? Just say.

BellaVita Sun 12-May-13 16:03:38

I am really sorry trinity x

CouthyMow Sun 12-May-13 16:06:15

I've been thinking about you all day. xxx.

Shower is good. Hugging children also good. Candy crush is a good distraction. I'm only on level 72.

Giraffes and Purple, you are stars. I'm so glad Trin has got some help and support from you both in RL.

Much love to you all, Trin. xxx

BookieMonster Sun 12-May-13 16:06:52

I'm so very sorry Trinity. I couldn't believe it when I saw this was you.
I'm thinking of you and wishing you and your DC strength and peace.
Pleas take care of yourself.

CouthyMow Sun 12-May-13 16:07:05

I wish I could do more to help, but I'm about 500 miles away.

RowanMumsnet (MNHQ) Sun 12-May-13 16:07:34


Trinity, we at MNHQ are so sad and sorry about what's happened. We hope you're getting a smidgeon of comfort from your fellow MNers.

Thanks to all who've suggested we let this thread go past 1000 posts. Here's what we said in our reply to Mouseface:

'Sorry to be unhelpful, but we almost never allow threads to go past the 1000 mark these days; it causes real problems for anyone using MN on a mobile device (which is a big proportion of our users these days) and anyone without a fast broadband connection.

We see this one has still got a few hundred posts to run, but when it gets into the 900s perhaps the best solution is for you to start a new one and link to it on the thread so everyone knows where to go next?

Thanks for being so lovely and supportive.'


Can't imagine what you're going through, just know that we are here and thinking of you x

OrWellyAnn Sun 12-May-13 16:17:23

Trinity, just logged on for the first time this weekend and couldn't believe what I was reading. I'm so sorry you are going through this again. My thoughts will be with you over the next days and weeks. X

TrinityRhino Sun 12-May-13 16:28:34

thanks rowan
I understand I can start a new one when it gets to that point
or someone will do it for me

JuliaScurr Sun 12-May-13 16:32:43


I have no experience of this, but I've heard great things of this treatment

Another one here who 'knows' you and your story trinity but who you wouldn't know from Adam.

I read the op, then had to check the date 3 or 4 times before I realised this was real and not a mistake sad I'm so so sorry to hear that you are once again facing this. Your dp sounds like a wonderful man and obviously so very in love with you and your girls.

I just wanted to add my support to the hundreds of other mumsnetters who are here for you and your girls.

Thinking of you xxx

Mouseface Sun 12-May-13 16:38:06

RowanMNHQ - I was just about to C&P that so thank you for saving me the time you lovely person you!

Trinity - I'm sure there will lots of us who will either ask you or offer to do it when it gets near to the end of the thread sweetheart.

Mouse xxxx

Trinity - I am so sorry to hear about your DP. Life can be such a bitch.

crazynanna Sun 12-May-13 16:58:49

qualitytoffee Sun 12-May-13 17:13:52

MunchkinsMumof2 Sun 12-May-13 17:21:31

I keep thinking about you too Trinity and welling up. Your Dp looks lovely, a real gentle giant with a kind and friendly face. I guess you have get through each minute and hope the awful memories will soon be replaced by happier ones. Sending love <know I'm a random on the interweb but I do care>

Anifrangapani Sun 12-May-13 17:46:05

Trinity I am so sorry.

TrinityRhino Sun 12-May-13 18:21:28

Ive added another picture of him in his silly red hat
he had a problem ear that he had to keep the wind out of so his hat was always on his head outside

I always thought it was a silly looking thing but it was him

mrsmindcontrol Sun 12-May-13 18:26:00

What lovely photos. You can feel what a lovely man he was. I've been thinking of you all day. Keep strong my love x

TobyLerone Sun 12-May-13 18:26:51

He looks like a lovely, lovely man.

Gobbolinothewitchscat Sun 12-May-13 18:28:20

trinity - thank you for sharing these x

Trinity those pictures are just wonderful. xx

LEMisdisappointed Sun 12-May-13 18:34:05

It jumps off the screen that he was a gentle giant, such a happy looking man who your DCs clearly adored - Still bet he looked daft in the crocs though wink Trinity, its not fair xxxx

Eeh, Trin, I was expecting a really silly hat by your description!

He looks so full of fun in all your photos.
I'm so sorry.

BewitchedBotheredandBewildered Sun 12-May-13 18:37:05

He looks very comfortable with himself which is always attractive.
I hope you get lots of help in the coming days, and that giraffes and purple let us know if there is anything we can do.

Love from not so sunny actuallybloodypissingdown Brighton!

FrannyandZooey Sun 12-May-13 18:37:58

Trinity, I am so sad and bloody angry for you. I couldn't believe it when I saw this and realised the date of the thread. I loved seeing the photos of dp and reading your stories about him. Keep talking and telling us everything. Sending you big big love.

In your photos, he looked so full of fun and kind and adored your girls.


CheerfulYank Sun 12-May-13 19:04:52

Oh Trin.

He looks like my favorite sort of person, down to earth and fun.

You and your girls must have made him so happy.
