Just wanted to put this thread on to replace the missing one. Worried that some people who have been following the old thread might really need it sometime and won't get the support they need/want. It has, and still does, help me.;)

    Thank you for starting the new thread.

    There was so much help and support on the 'old' one that I used to return to often so it will be very much missed.

    Lost my soulmate so life is empty.

    I can bear pain myself, he said softly, but I couldna bear yours. That would take more strength than I have -

    Torry I am so sorry, I hope you have some support. It must have been a terrible shock.

    The official line is...the spam button is getting accidentally pressed (easy enough on a phone or tablet I suppose) and once there are x amount of spam reports the spam bot deletes the thread forever.

    I am so sorry Torry. I can empathise, mine died very suddenly too, out cycling and the first I knew was when he was a little late and then a policeman came to the door. I remember seeing the air ambulance as it went overhead, I wondered at the time who was in it.

    I don`t come on this thread very often now but it was a life saver at the time. I remember sitting in the registrars office and I remember hearing very loud heart beats when I lay down at night, I thought that it was the end of my life but a few people gave me hope. Almost three years on and I have learnt to live on my own and now look forward to the future

    All I can say right now is that it does get better, in time

    Right now, number one thing to do is to take as best care of yourself as you can

    So very sorry Torry. I second all that Kittie has said. Please just ask - we might know the answer or have experience unfortunately.

    Oh, Torry, that’s so sad. Wish I had words to help, but there are none.
