I don't know if anybody here has encountered this problem. When SJ died, so did our business and our health care coverage. Now I'm trying to get coverage for myself and am having the worst time…Continue
"Great post, I'm still struggling with should I seek another relationship or leave it be. I still have the thoughts that if I did engage in another relationship it's somehow cheating. I know intellectually it isn't, but the heart is…"
"It's been over a year, and I can't even think of dating, let alone marrying. I miss my boo, and I still kind of feel like it would be cheating, even though I know and understand that it's not. I've been married twice, first one…"
"We just had what would have been our 8th wedding anniversary, but on one awful night SJ was taken from us. It's been over 1 year, which still feels like yesterday, but I had a good day looking at our pictures and remembering the awesome times…"
"Right now, I would have to say no. Heck to the no. As in no freaking way. Ask again in a year or so, I might have a different answer.
It's been a bit over a year, and I still have no interest in dating or marriage. I wouldn't want…"
"I'm a year in, and the frequency is getting less and less, but still minor things trigger me. While I understand this is normal, it still sucks when it happens. WRT calls from vultures, at first it was like the teenagers storming the gates at a…"

"Rather than do a funeral, we did a "Celebration of Life" for SJ, about 2 months after she passed. About 80 people showed up, including her childhood friends from CT, freinds from when she lived in San Fran, other friends from all around…"
"Been a year for me. I attacked all this stuff immediately after SJ passed, as I was still in a zone and in a fog because of her sudden passing. Mine was fairly simple and straightforward with a few hiccups and glitches. Once the reality set in, I…"
"No doubt chef, we all have "battle scars". SJ and I met in our 50's, so the stupid stuff we did in our younger days was not an issue. She had her warts and lord knows I have mine--nothing serious, just stupid stuff we do when we are…"
"Thank you Callie, I was able to "shrug it of" and forgive him, he's been like that since we were little kids. Nothing new for him :-). And yes, we don't get an instruction manual and never thought to take classes on how to deal…"
"One of my brothers recently told me to "shake it off and stop being such a *ussy." Thanks for nothing, big bro. I work from home and have for the last 20+ years, so I don't get out much. Our friends have been pretty good and have…"
