I know..I feel the same.....my closest girlfriends since I was a child all passed in our early 50's so I don't have them to lean on either....it's so hard....
Sharmann.....I also look Ok to others...and even probably sound Ok to them...but inside I feel as if I;m dying a slow death....
JS352......I agree totally .....about relationships.....I need more love in my life to give and receive...BUT ....although I used to think it had to be by way of a male/female relationship ..I no longer do.....love is love to me now..if I can help someone and it fulfills us both that's all that matters....I also have met no one who I would want to stick with...or even date.....I am in a bad place right now and hope it passes...because it's scaring me.....3 1/2 years later ....I cry and cry...I have to force myself to do anything..I was better at a year...I do push myself to go to my volunteering....2 full days....hard work...in a specialty cancer treatment facility.....I do feel as if I;m giving back...Bill died from lung and bone cancer...and I had lung cancer last winter...so far all tests are clear..I want to move but don't know where ,...just know it would be good for me to downsize.....all of a sudden I am anxious all the time.....and can't make decisions....at times I feel I am losing my mind....if I haven't already.........PEACE
Gordy's wife...what a wonderful idea...I sabotage every plan I could possibly have..I panic and get scared to go anywhere when it's time..and I;m not like that...but after over 3 1/2 years..I am so tired of going everywhere alone...and being disappointed time and time again...when no one even says hello......I'm at my wits end....I talked to my oldest daughter today...and we decided together that I am overwhelmed with what I should and shouldn;t do....I would like to downsize and move to a smaller place..I feel like I;m leaving Bill behind so of course I;m dragging my feet...and I know I'm not leaving him anywhere ,...couldn;t ..still love him too much...but I need a smaller place...and one that is mine...everything here is "us" everywhere I go it's "us".. I need something that is just me at this point......you should be very proud of yourself.......I know Gordy is.......God bless..
dear Gail & slick, in the beginning of the summer I told my mil that we were going to say yes to every invitation got invited to a "new" neighbors kids grad party...in july I think it was. She thought we maybe wouldn't go becuase we didn't kn ow them that well. I said no we are going and glad we did... while in Boston my sil invited me to go to her neighbors for dinner as my brother wanted to stay home I didn't know a soul ..... it was hard it felt weird... mostly all couples... I ate and stayed for a little while to chat..... later my sil told me she was surprised I went .... and was proud I did...
Not any invites or dates still not looking but trying to do more on my own...
its coming up to 3 years for me as well, and it seems impossible to avoid.
thank you. Risa had a fear of being forgotten. But everytime i see my grand Vivi i see her.She is 2 goimg on 22. She is the little love of my life
