Kevin....I am sorry to hear of the loss of your wife. I know my dad had a hard time after my mother passed. I also struggled with her death and ended up seeking out grief counseling. It really made a difference for me. It might for you as well.

Hello. My name is Kevin Talley. My wife passed away on Aug 30th. She started getting sick in Sept. 2010 and quickly progressed to being unable to walk or care for herself. She was not diagnosed with cancer until late April of 2011. She went on Hospice in Sept. 2011.

I had lost my job a year before this started and she lost hers a little before it started. I coped with all pretty well, while caring for her. I had a lot of stress and a couple of panic attacks and I even had a few times when I went blind in my right eye for 15 minutes at a time. So I guess I really didn't cope all that well.

I cried a little at the funeral. I cried a little the following Sunday at church. I cried some when I tried to write about it. But I think I'm getting better and worse at the same time. Does that make any sense?

One of her best friends (friend of mine also) was just diagnosed with breast cancer. and yesterday at church. I cried quite a bit. I think about what she and her husband are starting to go through and it reminds me of too much.
