I love this sight. 50, still sounds so old to me. Although I past that some time ago, Funny, my heart doesn't feel nor act old, but as I used to tell my husband, We are born to grow old and die. The cycle of life. Until the best part of you ends his cycle. I just remind myself all through out the day, there is only life after life. There is no death. As I told my husband so many time, it just a new adventure. So, he has begun his a bit earlier than I will. I am glad there will be the most important person in my life to greet me and show me the way. Just sometthing I wanted to share in this early morning. I look forward to starting my new adventure knowing he will lead the way there as he did so often while on this plane. It gives me a peace and love knowing this. Does anyone else out here believe the same way?? Blessings to you all.
Paula, glad you found a group, even if you were the only one in it! Sometimes that happens, people get busy. The group I attend is varying ages, it helps to get input from all no matter what the age. Hope you have resolved your health issues, one less thing to worry about. Take care.
I got nervous b/c I could not make a comment then realized that I had not signed in. Cathy, I went to my first Widows Over 50 event tonight. Only the founder showed up but she and I went to a movie and dinner. Unfortunately, I probably talked her leg off. But it was so nice to go somewhere on a Sat. night and talk to someone who knows what my life is like and how lonely it gets. I just sent her the info for this website and hope she'll join us.
There is a larger group of both widows and widowers but she has been to it and says it is a much younger group. It's Thursday night but I am going to try it.
I've been awol b/c of my ongoing health issues but finally after three weeks, the help of three doctors and talking to four hospitals and my insurance company, I am having yet another test done on Tuesday to try to find out why I am so sick all the time.
Welcome to the newcomers to this group, Suz, kl, drummer groupie. I hope I get to know you. It has been a long day for me so I am going to bed.
It's been a long, hard day. I try to hold onto those memories but they make me so sad. So nice to hear from you! You have a good night, too!
how are you doing there suz,,keep on with remembering and health,,memories are there forever ,,health is not,,take care of yourself,,nite,,kl
I live in Sacramento and there were 2 widow/widower groups when I first became one of them, but it seems everyone has moved on to other things. I would love to meet others in similar situation in this area. What part of Bay Area are you??
Hi Poppy's girl,
I understand completely. I am a 60 yr old who does not fit in anywhere. I just had 3yr anniversary, and in that time I have not met any new friends or widows except on this sight. I think we all just have to keep moving forward as best we can. (((hugs))) to you.
suz i cant really remember at 2 months thats how numb i was,and still am,,after 4 realization set in,,,along with missing,,,just keep your memories up front and do not dwell on negative,,, thinking of all ,,sleep well,kl
Ki, no worry. It is ok about the timing. I just couldn't do it now. Christ, I guess we have birthdays to share, huh? Jud's two month mark was five days ago so I understand the anniversary of his passing. I think my numbness is wearing off...things are seeming harder. I cannot tell you how good it is to come here.
Hugs and thanks.
