My husband has died

So numb, don't believe it. He was my rock.
I have support, but they are not here now, and I know they have lives and are dealing with their own grief. Just want to indulge in some self pity I think...

It’s not self pity. Post as much as you like - would you like to tell us a little about him? There is always someone here, night and day, to talk. Sending you a bloody big hug from Leeds xx

How awful for you. I’m truly sorry for your loss.

Would you like to tell us about him?

I’m so sorry, we’re listening if you want to talk about him.

So sorry. You don't need to apologise for wanting sympathy.

He was a big man, big heart, which let him down, funny, kind, generous, a pain in the arse and had been known to be a spoony fucker. We laughed a lot.
I have loads of really good support and know I am lucky, but they are not here now. I miss him and it's only a couple of days.

So very sorry for your loss Darnley.

Betarocker Sat 25-Nov-17 22:12:36

So deeply sorry for your loss from a fellow widow. WAY (widowed and young) is a wonderfully supportive online group if you need to talk people who understand. Take care x

Darnley Sat 25-Nov-17 22:13:16

Thank you. He has left a massive gap in many lives, not least mine.

SJM72 Sat 25-Nov-17 22:15:11

That really is terrible. Please, tell us a little about this wonderful guy.

Apileofballyhoo Sat 25-Nov-17 22:15:33

Of course you miss him. It's natural. All of your grief is natural, and your grief is unique to you. You are the only person whose husband he was. It's terrible for you. I know people sometimes think they should be brave, but you need to mourn and cry too. flowers
