I feel the same pain and feeling of being alone. My wife who was my soulmate, best friend and incredible mother passed away suddenly July 17th. These last two weeks have been hell. I don't understand how she can be gone at 32.
At first everyone was here to give support, but all have gone back home and the empty days make the reality start to sink in. I still wait for her to walk in the door, or call me on the cell like she did numerous times each day. I have not been able to move anything of hers. I tried to do the laundry, but broke down when it came time to fold and put her things away.
That Wednesday I not only lost my wife, I also had to return custody of my 8 year old stepdaughter to her biological father because in Texas custody goes directly to the surving biological parent.
Now everyday I come home to a quite house. No more sounds of my wife or daughter running around. I don't know what to do, I can not sleep, eat or concentrate on anything. My friends call and try to drag me out, but I don't want to go anywhere or do anything.
