I don't post very often but I do follow most of the threads. My husband died after a six year battle with cancer in September 2011.

Its been six months now and I understand what you mean about only remembering the end of the life. Only recently am I able to remember the times before he was really sick. I still don't have many memories of before he was diagnosed with cancer but at least for now my memories are less about his death and more about the fun things we did.

I think I had to spend a lot of time processing the last few months of his life before I could move on.

I was just thinking yesterday about how my memories have been changing, and now I even find some of them make me smile.

Thanks so much.
It's been a tough couple of weeks, ever since valentines day.
But your messages and hugs help

my husband died of cancer after a six year battle....people say I must be relieved, I must have more time for myself and it must be easier now. If only they knew.....I would do anything to have him back, just for a little while...

I thought i was doing better but the grief hit me like s ton of bricks this week. From what I've been reading I guess thats how the process seems to work.

I like the idea that I read  that said,  sometimes you have to take it one minute at a time,  cause that's all I can cope with lately.

I have two kids, 19 and 14. I hate to grieve and cry in front of them. Seems to really upset them so I try to be strong and have my crying moments when I am alone. It's not always easy to do but I guess nothing has been easy to do since Marc died.

I am dreading Christmas, especially since my 14 year old wants to do all the decorating that we always did and even more this year. I find it hard to get the energy.

I love reading the posts .... Its nice to know I am not alone and I will survive ( and I'm not crazy)

My husband passed away 5 weeks ago after a long battle with cancer. I thought I was prepared for his death. I thought it would be hard but nothing prepared me for how hard it is.

My husband was my best friend, and I miss him so much.

I just wish I new how long it will take to feel better.
