Clare replied to Mike's discussion Why did this happen? in the group Widowed in 2017
"Sorry for your loss, Mike. At five months here and I'm doing the same thing. I have no idea when it stops. Maybe never. I have stopped the internet searches though. My mum is a nurse and her best advice was to stay clear of Google."

Hi Clare,

Just wanted to check in and see how things are going. I hope you've had some progress with the financial side of things. Just another incredibly stressful thing to deal with, isn't it? Any more thoughts on Ballarat? A change could be a blessing in disguise. I wasn't sure about moving back to Melbourne, until I got there and thought - nope - too many memories. Felt like I needed to start afresh and can't say I regret the move to Tassie. It really is stunning down here. Been kept busy with sorting out my new place, but I have a sneaking suspicion once I have time to stop then its all going to hit me anew. I have found a fellow widow down here and have met up for a chat with her. There really is nothing like having someone who 'gets it' to chat to. I hope you've found some support in Melbourne. There's no organised group down here so I'm liasing with First Light to try and get a group going.....will see how we go!

Anyway, thinking of you.

Hey Clare,

Just a little note to say hello. Thinking of you.  I hope you have friends and family around you, this time of year is difficult. Hang in there.

I'm in Hobart now. Settling in to a new life. Yesterday was a hard day with lots of tears. They come and go, always surprising me! 

Anyway, I hope you find your way to WV every now and then. It really can be a lifesaver.

Hi Clare,

I wanted to check in and see how you are doing. I'm sorry I've been away a while - I left the United States not long after our last conversation, so I've been dealing with jet lag and general 'moving country' stuff. 

I'm in Brisbane at the moment - gorgeous weather up here. How is Melbourne? I'm flying into Melbourne on Wednesday - Friday will be the 12month anniversay of Mike's death so his friends have organised a get-together. Ugh. I'm looking forward to seeing everyone but of course, it will also suck big time. 

I've been thinking about you, hoping you are being supported, and that you are getting through the days.

Soaring Spirits International has partnered with First Light Widowed Association, an organization for widowed people in Australia, to provide a private forum for our Aussie widows to connect.  In addition to this online community, First Light hosts local catch ups throughout the country and is working with Soaring Spirits to bring Camp Widow to Australia in the future. 

Here's a link to the private group page here in the Village:
