Hi, I have been trying to find a platform to share my grief with people who might understand. So I came to join this community and started reading everyone’s posts. Although I could sympathise with many difficult journeys, caring for terminally ill partners, before dealing with the loneliness of evenings, the feeling of being lost, when no amount of ‘preparation’ is enough to ready you for the end... I think I am yet to read the testimony of fellow widows with young kids. My husband passed away from bowel cancer a few weeks ago at the age of 30, after almost 4 years battling. We have two boys aged 4 & 6. They are and always will be my priority but I am not sure how to help them the best way possible while dealing with my own feelings... I live in the most supportive community in a little country town (which I was due to move away from the week after my husband passed away but I have put this on hold for this very reason...) but no one can quite understand what I am going through. I am not sure what I am after with this post. Maybe I just needed to share... Has anyone gone through this while supporting young children?
