If I think about the 10 month mark too much I realize how close it is to a year, so I've been trying to push it out of my head.  I love when I have my granddaughters, they are the biggest distraction around.  Went to home depot today for the first time by myself, cried so hard when I walked in that I almost left, but I hung in there.  I had two good things happen this week and I immediately thought about sharing with Tom and it kind of brought me down.    We just have to keep cha cha ing along....lol

Welcome to our community.... I hope we can keep you company on your journey ahead. Please look around a bit and read this basic introduction to the site. You can find more information about how the community works under "Help!" in the navigation bar, and we'll send you a few newsletters with tips and ideas in the coming weeks. If you need a little more help, go to the Home page and look in the right hand column to see the link to a "Help Desk" form.
We all use the site differently, but we hope you feel comfortable sharing among us in the coming days, weeks, and months.
Big hug!

I'm sorry about your anniversary today Kat, our 23rd anniversary was May 27th and it just about destroyed me.  I spent the day looking through pictures which made me worse and better at the same time.  You will really be glad you joined here,  found this site 3 weeks after Tom died and it really saved my life.  Hugs

Hi Kat and welcome.  I am so very sorry for your loss and hope that you will find this site useful to you in some way.  There are many caring people here and, since we're all going through so much of the same thing, everyone understands.  That, in itself, is a nice feeling.  Take care and I wish you all the best.  Lynne
