Iwe get it...I'm so sorry. hugs Juls.
My fourth wedding anniversary without my love is this Sunday. It would've been 23 years. The last three years have been a blur. I think the first year a friend took me out for dinner - but it felt awful. The next two years I was out of town, but nobody ever remembers - not my son, and certainly not my stepkids. Not my husband's family - and certainly not mine. So I asked my BFF if she would spend some time with me that day. I asked my son to call me. I'm learning to ask for what I need and stop expecting people to step up. They've all forgotten all the special dates. They're only special and painful for me, now. Anyone else?
Dad gummed, Pipin! Ha! Just when I thought I made my decision not to to go-love you! I'd rather come see you-those whiners will always be there...
My girls's weekend starts tomorrow. I can not bring myself to go, breaks my heart.
they are all such good friends, but they will be whining about husbands and parents-which have all died in my book.
Jocelyn...I could have written word for word what you wrote...I'm 3 1/2 years...still struggling.....but have my moments that I am me...
I often have felt like an imposter! Before my husband died, people would say I was cheerful, optimistic, outgoing, etc. Taking care of him and watching the brain cancer was very serious business, but I tried to keep him laughing. I'm a shell of the person I used to be. Every now and then, at 20 months out, my personality comes out a bit again, and I think, oh yeah, this is how I used to be! Trying to get my old "mojo" back. Practice makes perfect, eh? :)
and Kerrie, close your eyes can't you hear him say you missed a spot!
