Worst Weekend Ever!!!


I had a horrible weekend!  My husband passed away unexpectedly.  My son has been having a very hard time with it.  They were very close.  I’m still in shock.  Everyone says that I’m doing so well dealing with it.  I have no choice.  I have to be strong for my son.  Someday, when he’s doing much better, I’ll probably break down.  Right now, I can’t.  I have to be there for him.  We are making arrangements for a Celebration of Life for him.  I miss him so much!  We just celebrated our 21st anniversary in March.  In a few years, it would have been our 25th anniversary.  We were going to do something special.  We don’t usually do anything because we’re broke.  But we were going to find the money somewhere to do something small.  We deserved it.  Now that will never happen.  Everyone keeps telling me not to dwell on that.  A friend told me that I could still do something special for myself on that day.  It’s going to be so hard!

Please send some positive thoughts to my family and me.  We can really use it right now.  Thank you so much for everyone who is there for me.  It is so appreciated!

Till next time,

— Joyce.

  2. I am so sorry for your loss.

    As much as you say you need to be strong for your son, you have to make allowances and be kind to yourself by allowing yourself to grieve.

    Perhaps you could attend counselling to discuss how you are feeling, especially as the loss was so sudden?

    To be strong for your son, you have to be well, and if you bottle up your feelings until he is managing to cope, it could take a while, and that will put pressure on yourself.

    Be kind to each other, and I hope that you can get the support you both need x

    • I am making an appointment with my former counsellor as soon as possible. She’s already heard the news and reached out to me. She is on holidays until Tuesday. Hopefully, I can see her next week. I have also talked to one of the staff at my local Peer Support Centre. It helped. I also attended my Craft Group this morning. I really needed it. Thanks for your support! x
