I too lost my husband Tom in almost the identical way as yours. 11/29/01 woke up at 3:30 am and he was not in bed. Found him on the kitchen floor.
I am an R.N. and knew almost immediately he was beyond the time frame for CPR, but made a futile attempt anyway. Tom was 49 and a very healthy guy
at the time of his death.
It is so comforting to hear you who have faced a similar loss as mine can see the light at the end of this dark tunnel and are finding new ways to make your life meaningful again.
I know my husband would not want me to carry this intense grief longer than necessary, and most definitely would want me to get back into life when the time was right and get on with all my myriad of interests since he was my biggest cheerleader.
I hope that one day I will get to the place where you are where life again has meaning, and the memories I shared with my husband bring smiles and not constant tears.
Thank you for your inspiring post.
