Hi Liz1 I find myself in the same predicament as you except my husband only had 14 months after diagnosis. I find it difficult to accept he is gone. It has been 10 long weeks. I miss him so badly that there are moments when I just can't breathe from all the tears. He always bounced back after treatment even though it caused him a stroke and diabetes. He loved life, he didn't want to leave me or the children. I'm not sure how to continue on without him. It's easy for others to say 'time heals,' as they still have their partners. I have been with my husband for 34 years. We were looking forward to eventually retiring together and travelling. I can't bear the thought of now going anywhere as he will not be with me. The silence in our home is now deafening. Just remember that there are people who understand exactly what you are going through Liz1. I know the heartache is real.
