Back to basic basics

On June 7, 2013 I lost the love of my life and partner for the last 21 years of my life. My darling husband died suddenly while he was at work. His heart simply stopped beating. It was the kind of heart event that you hear of young healthy athletes having. Gone in seconds. He was only 59.

Since that horrible day I have been trying to learn how to live in a world that is completely and permanently changed. There is an endless aching in my heart.

On June 7, 2013 I lost the love of my life and partner for the last 21 years of my life. My darling husband died suddenly while he was at work. His heart simply stopped beating. It was the kind of heart event that you hear of young healthy athletes having. Gone in seconds. He was only 59.

Since that horrible day I have been trying to learn how to live in a world that is completely and permanently changed. There is an endless aching in my heart.

In the first days I had to remind myself to breathe in and out. My therapist told me to just do the basic basics to get through each day... remember to eat three times a day.. to drink water... to have clean clothes... to sleep.. and nothing else matters.
I've gotten a little stronger each day. Although I very much do not want to be here, I know that he would want me to carry on and so I will do so to honor him. So I'm doing the best that I can. I'm starting to focus more on my health. I had made tremendous strides in turning my health around in the last couple of years before he passed. I had my diabetes in complete control and I'd lost 75 pounds. He was so proud of me. I don't want to lose ground now. I want to continue to live in a way that would make him proud.

This is a great website, there 12 steps document is free, as well as other things. Similar to OA but no restrictions, as in abstinence from certain foods, focus is on mental healing.

Sorry to read about your husband, I hope you are feeling a little better about life. I lost 3 siblings all younger than me and life is not the same without our youngest sister...everything does change doesn't it. My heart goes out to you.

Thanks you for putting yourself out there and sharing so much in detail on the wheat discussion on the message boards.
The truth needs to be told and you are doing a great job at it. emoticon emoticon

Thank you AGAIN for your comment on my blog. I wasn't really meaning to vent so much as trying to share my experience.... Too bad it turned out like this. Thank you for understanding and offering support.

Thank you very much for your comments on my blog about abstinence from wheat and how hard that is. I really appreciate it.
