A great support group for people widowed aged 50 and under

Posted 28th Feb
I lost my wife last year aged just 45. Leaving me and my 9 year old daughter. Without the support of this group and the people in it I don't know I'd have coped. If anyone knows anyone who's been widowed young this group may be of some benefit to them. There's local sub groups dotted around the country where members can meet up for a variety of activities. Here is the link for anyone intrested

I was widowed young too. It's horrible. Five years in it is still hard work. My advice is that if there is help out there, grab it with both hands. I was 49 when my husband died. I have not joined widowed and young but I still could because of how old I was at the time. It is something I do consider from time to time.
For anyone here struggling with grief, there are quite a few people on here I know that are in the same boat. Please please please, it you don't feel able to join an organization or you just don't know where to turn, or you just need someone to talk to, just post something on misc. You aren't alone. It's a lonely place and not something you expect to happen earlier on in life but it does. Whatever is worrying you, I guarantee someone else has gone through the same.
Thank you @Wirralbargains77 for posting this and it you need anything, all of the above goes for you too. All my Very best wishes. X

stay strong. It's hard but you'll get there. We all will. May not be fun, but if we are breathing and our children are thriving, we've succeeded.

Same goes for myself. As PBH said you have quite a few of us here. Still have our moments, which was actually on Wednesday in Madrid, just thinking of how much she would have enjoyed the experience of the mercado de san miguel and the Football match, even though neither of us where into football it was still such an experience.

Yah, all grand ty. Had me moments, though now got a few holidays behind me and looking forward to my next. Madrid was a mix of business and pleasure, just sort of hit when my colleagues asking me to take some pics for them to send to wives/husbands at the Real Madrid vs Man City match and buying them some presents etc, but got over it .

Thanks PBH for the notification/consideration

Apologies for disappearing from HUKD I do check by occasionally but mainly just deals. For me HUKD doesn't have the same appeal as it once did. Free speech is ignored and trying to post a deal from a reputable German business failed because it didn't meet HUKD's "standards" (I'll use that term so as not to have the thumbscrews tightened more).

Wrote a lot more but as usual I wrote from the heart and decided to just delete and add the following

I'm OK as OK has a wide meaning. Yes I can't wait for the warmer dryer weather so I may escape these 4 walls for longer and see new sites and meet new people

I keep thinking about riding up to Bradford and surprising some woman at Morrison's (still never figured out which was their local but IIRC there's only potentially 2 to choose from) but my (insert round dangly things) keep disappearing or shrinking

Thanks again for heads up

I actually managed to ignore it this year mostly as busy prepping for a warehouse move, then the move itself and few weeks of support and the day itself was side tracked by a conference in Dublin
