Widowed

2Racks2Racks Member Posts: 3,596 Member Member Posts: 3,596 Member
Was recently widowed in July of this year, I have three kids ranging in ages from 3-13, anybody else kinda going through something similar. It’s been really hard on me, looking for support.

    I'm so sorry. I am divorced, so not the same situation, but single parenting is exceptionally hard, especially when you are trying to process your own grief while being supportive of your children's grief. Try to keep communication with your children open. Listen when they need to talk and let them know that you are also grieving and explain how you are coping (or not, if that is the case)

    Sorry to hear this, didn't realise it was only a short time ago. Im not a widow but imagine it must be so hard suddenly being mum and dad to your kids.. its important you talk to and listen to them but you need someone too.

    I became a widow in April. I have two small children, ages 4 and 5. Sorry for your loss, I know EXACTLY what you’re feeling. It’s confusing, feeling like you’ve been ripped from your life. An alternate reality. Message me if you want!

    The above post was me. Sorry, didn’t realize I was logged in to my husbands old account. I like to have him on my friends to keep me motivated.

    I made a new MFP today. I was logged into my husband’s old account, as I wanted to add myself from there. So, yeah.

    Yes, he passed in April. It might sound weird, but I thought having his account on my friends list would help me stay motivated.

    Doesn't sound weird. Makes perfect sense. I'm sure he'd want you to continue your journey and is cheering you on

    Oh. I'm sorry for your loss. <3 I understand now. I was confused. I first thought you meant the above being "The above OP 2Racks" I didn't realize the above that you mean't was "Testosterone." Again, apologies. And very sorry for your loss.

    So sorry for both of your losses. I can't imagine having to deal with that and raise your children.

    Not weird at all and sorry for your and everyone else's loss. My father passed in July and I'll do everything possible to keep his last voicemail.
