    I've never talked about personal issues here, but this time....well, let's just say it seems I've lost my soulmate. She is the most amazing, incredible and wonderful woman I've ever known. I'm lost guys.

    First week or two is going to suck. Set Facebook so you can't see any of her status updates, if you're on Facebook. Stay as busy as you can. Friends, OT at work, anything. It seems like the end of the world. Every time. It gets better. Every time.

    That sucks!
    No advice from me on making it better.We all gotta work thru that kind of pain our own way.
    Just don't get drunk and do anything stupid.It doesn't help.

    I'm sorry Jesse. Here we all thought you meant the "world" in general, and this is a very personal thing. I am very sorry for you losing your soulmate Jesse. You will be in my prayers to help you through this time. Please accept my condolences and if you need to talk, you know my number.

    Sorry to hear that Jesse. I've been there before and it sucks for sure. Best thing to do is, if you have young kids, stay close and see them as much as you can. Time is a great healer imho.

    Right, I used to believe that too. Except we've all been endowed with this thing called a "memory". While time may ease the pain some, you still lose a bit of zest for life. One of my favorite quotes comes from an Indiana Jones movie ....." At some point, life stops giving you things and starts taking away."

    Jess, I know personal stuff isn't your bag to float around a public forum, but whatever it is we wish you well and strength to get threw it all.

    Jesse, very sorry for your loss. Hang in there, probably the worst thing you can experience with life. Not much consolation but it will get better. It will never be the same, but it will get better.

    Its tough Jesse. Must be in the water. My bride of 35 years and I are having a really hard time right now and probably on the shakest ground ever.

    Hang in there but hopefully things will turn around and you both will be stronger for having experienced this time.

    Sorry to hear that. But, these things happen to everyone, eventually. I've seen almost everyone in my parents' generation leave and that includes two parents and a step-parent. Been to so many funerals in the last five years my head is spinning. Hang in there.

    Sorry to hear that too CNH, same boat here. Then again who hasn't lost anyone once you start getting up in age ? Just my opinion, but losing a relative isn't the same as a husband or wife especially if you've been together for a good length of time. Your very existence, your heart and soul meld together. When one departs, the loss can be unbearable. No words can describe that emptiness left behind and nothing will fill that void. The only thing left is to hold on to the others you hold dear, embed your love and effort, and time to where it will do the most good for you, and your family.

    Time....will take us all eventually. What we do with that time we have left is up to us. We are all different in how we deal with the loss of loved ones. We each find our own way to move on until we ourselves are taken by time. If this is indeed Jesse's wife we are talking about, my condolences Sir, nothing more I can say will suppress what you must be feeling. God bless.....

    Sorry to hear of your troubles Jesse. Don't know exactly what kind of loss you experienced, whether it's through death or decision. I've found writing down thoughts and feelings to be hugely effective in gaining clarity, unloading your brain so stuff doesn't circulate endlessly. It's a way of getting to feelings that may be too complicated or painful otherwise.

    Alcohol and drugs, use sparingly. After the high wears off, the situation is remains unchanged, but now you have a hangover too.

    Take care of yourself and use PM to reach out if you need to.
