    Hi, came across this site after spending the day thinking about my wife. She sadly died 4 months ago the day before lockdown after a courageous 3 year battle with cancer. Grieving is a rollercoaster of emotions such us anxiety, sadness, of guilt, thinking could I have done more to try and save her and the apprehension of careering into a new life of single parenthood. My son is 11 years old and he has coped with everything so well which gives me the strength to make sure I remain strong for the both of us.

    Hi, I am sorry for your loss. I’m glad you and your son have each other, and I hope with time you can remember the wonderful times you had together and share the funny stories.

    While it isn’t the same I lost my Dad to cancer 4 years ago ( and my relationship ended just a few weeks later). Even though you have time to say goodbye it is never long enough.

    Hopefully someone will be on soon who has been through the same.

    Good luck for the future.

    Thank you for your kind words Karen. She always told us to try and not be sad After her death, but it’s hard. She was only 47 and had a beautiful sole. She believed everyone has a guardian angel and it gives us comfort knowing she now has her wings while watching over us.

    I joined this sight today to find people to talk to that understand part of what I am going through. I saw your post and it hits home. I lost my husband this February after battling with cancer for two years he was such a great guy. I am now a window and a mommy to my 1 year old he is my rock without him I would have fallen apart. He makes me smile and keeps me moving forward one day at a time. I suppose I’m messaging to say you are not alone!   how do you treasure each moment but still move forward without them thinking you don’t love them anymore or is that all just in your head?

    Hi so sorry for your loss. I lost my husband in January this year after a road accident. I have three young boys. Everyday is hard but have to keep going for the kids. Hope you have good support, I have found lockdown has made things worse but hopefully things will improve now xx
