Thu, Mar 26 10:24pm · The End: When caregiving ends, my husband passed away in Caregivers

I also lost my husband. It was june 14 19, it wasnt demetia it was his lungs. But it was hard watching him die. I know our situation of losing our husbands are different. I also took care of his aunt that had dementia. It is hard to care for someone with that disease. It is hard and you are a strong person and a very courageous person. I hope you can find comfort in knowing that you did a wonderful job. I am positive he is looking down on you and smiling. And knowing what a wonderful person and caretaker you was. I am so sorry for your loss. Just know you can go on without guilt or shame. I can tell you it is not easy. Do you have a church you can go to. They also have grief meeting at most churches. That is where I go to get relief because even though you all lost your husbands they don't condemn you for what you went through because you are just like them. I hope this helps. Again so sorry for your loss.

I keep my grandchildren not as much. But mainly I try to keep busy. I also just cry once in a while. The death of my daughter is today. It has been 12 years. Last year we had a grandchild on this day Thank God it gives me something to look forward to. My husband Birthday is coming up. I don't know how it will go since I don't go to school that day. But I will survive until God calls me home. I have told people i have to live 18 more years so i can see all my grandkids graduate.

Merry @merpreb is this where you were talking about. My name is melissa and I was a caregiver for my husband until he passed away 6/14/19. Since he passed, I was a mess for the first few months. I was just mad at the world and I wrecked my car and that made me feel like crap, it was one of the 2 cars that he had put together. I was always trying to do stuff to stay away from people. Then a switch happened i started going to grief meetings,and started going to church, got saved and baptized I started back to school to get my diploma, I graduate in May. My children thought I wasn’t grieving. But now they are proud of me for doing what I always encouraged them to do. I will always love and miss my husband. But when you realize you have to do what is best for you. Then you can start a different life and make it better for yourself. It’s not easy but if I can do it so can you.Thank you to all the wonderful people on here for keeping me strong. I graduate May 29th 2020 from the mers goodwill excel center.
