Can a person die from a broken heart?

It's only been 7 weeks since my loving husband went on his journey with God. Sometimes when I read posts of people who still feel the raw pain after so many years it really scares me. I think I'd simply die myself of a broken heart. Some days I wonder. :cry:

Michelle....there are truly a lot of days in the past 7 years that I have felt like I would die from a broken heart and many of those days, I secretly hoped I would. But, although there will always be an empty place in your heart, that your soulmate once filled, the pain does lessen.

You're at 7 weeks without your husband and I'm at 7 years. I still ache for him but I know he will always be with me and will always be a part of me. He's right here with me, in my heart. I know this is no real consolation right now, as your loss is still so new. Heck, I can't always console myself after 7 years.

But, what I can tell you is that it somehow gets easier. First, you learn how to get through an hour at a time, then a day, a week, a month. Just after I lost Dennis, I started writing letters to him and I kept a journal of those letters. Every year, just about this time, I take out those letters and read them. I amaze myself when I see how depressed and lost I was 7 years ago. Every year, I add a new letter to this collection. I also write when I'm having a bad day or dealing with something I know Dennis could make me feel better about. Somehow, it makes me feel closer to him.

Just remember that we're all here for you and we'll all get through this together.

It really does take time and it really is like learning to live life all over again. you were robbed of the future you thought you'd have. It sucks, it's horrible, it's physically painful, it's absolutely not fair.

But in time- life can be good again. those are just words right now, but it really is the truth.

I will say that while you can't die of a broken heart, you can stop taking care of yourself while you're grieving...and those things can be dangerous to your health. Please don't forget to take care of yourself.

We're here for you.

Hugs and prayers
