45 years ago, my Father told me, "Beware the Ides of March!"
It was the day I got Married to my Girlfriend. I miss her. It's been almost 3 years since she lost her battle with cancer. Together, we went through a lot. Financial troubles. Raising two kids (the teenage years were the worst). Empty Nest Syndrome. Her COPD. And then the cancer.

Now, this is one of the few nights a year that I'll be getting drunk. If I had some Cannabis, I would smoke that, too. It's the only thing that can drown out the pain.

I lost my wife without loosing my wife, she was physically disabled and I supported her through 10 years of breast cancer after which she decided she wanted a different life and to be on her own and do what she wanted when she wanted without having to consider me. 27 years of marriage gone just like that. At the end of the day it meant nothing to her.

I just passed 4 years of loosing Annette. getting duller but will never go away and I don't want it to. Sometimes I still tear up and suspect I always will. So will you and that's good. Peace


Welcome to the club no one wants to join. I lost my wife just about two years ago to ALS. It's never easy, and it never really goes away. Her 70th birthday would have been four days from now, and I'll have a few drinks to celebrate her memory.

@AncientNight Did you miss the part where I said that my wife died two years ago?

@AncientNight Okay, that makes sense. I talk to Cathy all the time, but never get an answer.


It does suck but at least the memories are good and not everyone has that


My heart goes out to you. It will be 2 years in June that my darling Richard past away. The pain of losing the ones we love never completely leaves us. It only gets a little easier with each passing year. Sending hugs your way.

@AncientNight So true. This website and the people I have befriended have helped me get through the worst experience of my life. I hope the site never goes away because I would feel lost without it.😍


Very sorry for your loss.
