Hi LC, I'm a Tennessean so your post caught my eye. That, and the whole thing about your kids. I lost my love, my life, in 2011 today it's hitting hard for some unknown reason. When this happens now, I think to myself - God, it's been over 3.5 years - when will the pain subside??? I'm so lonely - have thought about dating for almost a year, but can't bring myself to join any of those onsite dating things. I still wear my husband's robe and sweatshirts sometimes. I must tell you that the 2nd year for me was worse than the first. But the past 6 months (excluding the holidays) were much improved. I went to Camp Widow last year in Tampa. I have not registered for this year's. I think instead of Tampa, maybe I'll wait and go to San Diego. But I encourage you to try one of them and keep getting on this site. It's helped me tremendously. Take care. Big hug to you. Juls
