Fri Feb 19, 2021, 04:13 PM

Just stop in to say I won't be posting much (not that I posted much),

for awhile. My husband, Jim, died in a traffic accident today. So. Things to attend to and rearrange. Life does what it does.

CAVU, Airman.

Fall apart. Nothing wrong with that, but do try to take care of yourself.

82. OMG...that "brain fall apart" thing?

Totally true. Also, allow yourself to feel what you're feeling...don't deny anything. I tried that for a while..."He was suffering, now he's in a better place, his pain is over" ad nauseum, and it broke me. If you want to cry, cry. Rail at the heavens. Scream if you want. I found it helpful to have empty boxes around the house that I could kick. Friends and family will understand and be there for you and nobody else matters.

If I can get through tonight (still waiting for him to pull into the driveway), I think I'll be ok.

He was a good man who gave more than he took. I was lucky to have him.

86. how terrible--i'm so sorry this happened. i'm hoping you have

family around you that you can talk with and lean on and who will just let you talk and cry, and even cook for you.

it's a huge change when we lose someone in our day-to-day because there is always that constant reminder in whatever you're doing to include them

just take it easy--take it slow (and i mean from decision-making to walking around the house)

sending both of you light and love.

we're here for you.

77. Deepest condolances

It's my worst fear, too. My wife takes frequent long drives on streets and highways populated by maniacs.

I'm so sorry for you that my worst fear had to happen to you.

Last edited Tue Mar 2, 2021, 07:46 AM - Edit history (1)

Your kind words, advice and offers of help mean more than I can say. I love this place. DU is the best.

I can't sleep because the old brain keeps putting up fire walls. "What am I going to do with all his stuff??" He was king of the pack rats -- everything from cars to ancient manuals about repairing antique sewing machines. "How am I going to do this or that or the other thing, etc?"

Of course, the old brain is avoiding dwelling upon the reality of "I'll never see him again." In the morning I would find him at the kitchen table net surfing the news. Getting my coffee and sitting with him and snark, analyze or rage about what's going on. I'll never tell him again "Hey, the bees are out and the daffodils are starting to bloom." Him telling me the cardinal pair showed up. Just two old folk married forever getting through the day.

Yes, I will get on, but it will never be the same.

Thank you for letting me do a little virtual grieving.

I'll lose it during his funeral at NH Veteran's Cemetery. I'll be in uniform and during Taps I'll have to salute. Guarantee the old sarge will have do everything to keep from coming apart.

Thank you for the kind thoughts.
