Hi Nancy and all Nancylanders, This is to Sharon in TN. I lost my husband five years ago to a massive heart attack also. He hadn't been sick and it came as a shock to us all. Please just take one day at a time. The first year is definitely the hardest. You will find yourself crying at the silliest things but that's part of the healing. You for sure think you will never make it thru this but believe me my friend you really will and will be stronger for it.
The nights were the hardest for me too and sometimes still are. I got a cat from the Humane Society and she is such a joy and keeps me company. When I got her home and went thru her papers(it's like buying a house) I found out she was born on my hubby's birthday - now how ironic is that. I wish I had your email addy I would love to talk to you. Just don't stop going places and doing things yourself. Dianne in Wisconsin
I also lost my husband suddenly. I feel your pain. Luckely I already had a job outside of the home to keep me busy. Also adopted a kitten, Sad how there are so many to choose from. Mine is a lover and sleeps stretched out beside me on the bed, as tight to me as he can get. That is the way my husband slept, spoon fashion. Amazing animals.
