"I don't quite have the flashbacks that you are mentioning Sherry, but Guy was diagnosed with ALS a bit over a year ago so reliving that experience but in memories. At this time last year, he was just starting to be wheelchair bound but still…"

"Yes, the sentiment of that poem is a reflection of this experience which is so hard to put into words, thanks for sharing Vern. I find living alone tough also. I have a friend who asked if I was liking being alone; I've always enjoyed alone…"

"Hi wyzkyd, your boss is out of line. You have the right to take a personal day, or a sick day. You also do not need to tell her why. Considering how unsympathetic she is, the less she knows the better. Can you take time off next week? I have a…"

"I've always enjoyed walking and hiking. But like you Alexendra, discipline and alot of the joy has gone out the window since Guy died. I was out on a brief hike when he died. Our son was with him, and even though he texted me to come…"

"Intense morning at work today; a large group of people toured the facility where I work. I was asked at the very last minute to summarize some of the work I do in front of everyone. I'm fine speaking and explaining when talking to small…"

"Mark, you are so brave to do a big dinner! Cooking can be so fun. This Friday, some musician friends are playing a gig for a Holloween party. Haven't decided whether to go or not; last year Guy went, but, for him, it was the first time he…"

"Hi wyzkyd and everyone, when Guy died -(almost 5 months ago - hard to believe) I was numb for about 3 months; I appeared fine, but truly hardly remember any of it. I'm not so numb anymore, what would have been our 26th anniversary turned out to…"

"Yes! exactly; is it our house, my children? It still feels so shared, just as anniversaries and other special events in 'our' life together."

"Hi Mark, sorry that you are having a hard day. Perhaps Mondays are more difficult - we tend to have to face the day without support of friends and family. I find it so much easier when people are around like on the week end.  Hope your day gets…"

"It's been a rough few days; last Thursday which would have been our anniversary (don't know whether to put that in the present or the past tense, so confusing) was fine, I planned quite a few activities; I've crashed since though and…"

"That is pretty funny; in a dark kinda way! It's weird when Guy was so sick, and caregiving so intense, people would ask me how I did 'it' . I could only use the old cliché 'day by day'. Somehow it doesn't apply…"
