"My step son and I were having words and he told me I should be past it and had no right to still feel this way. Needless to say I said "Whoa" right there, I told him nobody has the right to tell me how to feel."

Hopesmom replied to Rainy (Misty)'s discussion What is going on with the shifting of emotions?
"Man do I know how you feel. I have also shut myself away from people. I didn"t do it on purpose. I have lots of good days but I also think I'm putting it on the back burner so it sometimes sneaks up and overwhelms me. Just hang on baby!"

"Maybe I look at the situation differently, but it is no secret that widows are quite vulnerable. For someone to make a move so quickly on her, makes me wonder about his intentions. Something similar happened to a friend of mine a year or so…"
