Allison, I am so, so very sorry for your loss. My Husband of 28 yrs together 32 years took his life while out of town. We have a 19 year old Son. It has been 585 days, and I , like you, still think he is going to walk thru the door.

My husband committed suicide three months ago - today is his birthday - I can't believe he's not here to say happy birthday to - I have heard from no one to say are you okay - do you need to talk or do you need anything! His family can't deal with it - my family can't deal with it and his friends are just going on with their lives -saying well it's shame - I feel alone to deal with this unbearable grief and pain - I'm trying to keep a brave face on but inside I'm destroyed - I still think he's going to come home sometimes - I just want him back at the same time I get so angry with him for what he did to me - I just want him to send me a sign that he's still with me - something to make me feel better - we had a great relationship - we loved each other very much - we had so much fun together but he was an alcoholic and the alcohol demon took him from me - he wasn't seeing clearly - he thought he was burdening me and he wasn't - I would have done anything for that man - I hate this world without him... I keep thinking of his birthday last year and how much I love him - sometimes I can handle it - sometimes I can't - sometimes it makes me sick when I think about what he did to himself - I can't tell people outside the family some of them can't handle it when I say my husband killed himself and then they ask me what happened and then when I tell them he shot himself they look horrified and say why would he do that to you - what do you say when you don't even know yourself....
