Lirvie replied to Rose481's discussion Am finding that the more I am alone...
"It's hard to describe. But, I like being alone with my own thoughts. But not in my own space. I'll go to the bar. Or out to a movie by myself. When it's warm, I frequent parks. There's people around, but would rather not interact…"

Lirvie replied to Jill's discussion How old were you when your spouse died? How does your age affect your self-concept now that you're on your own?
"I was 30 when I lost my husband, who was 28 at the time. This was in 2013. I know I definitely felt I was too young to be alone for the rest of my life. Then the ignorant comments like, well you can find someone else. But I didn't, and still…"

Tribute tattoo for my late husband

The tattoo artist used a picture of the bicycle my husband rode as a template. The words are from the Flaming Lips song Do You Realize???? The accident occurred in the fall which was also his favorite season. I wanted to share this with you guys.

"I started to say something the other night but didn't finish. Like I said, I was widowed last year at the age of 30, my husband was just 28. I'm 31 now, back in school. It was hard living in my house for the longest so I bought a place in…"

"Widowed at 30. Restarted school. Dealing with young adults with a teen of my own is different to say the least. Sometimes if someone tries to talk to me, I find the first instance I can to blurt out how I was widowed recently. They start to leave…"

Lirvie commented on Soaring Spirits's group Suddenly widowed
"Oh I detest this Christmas music. I wasn't that big a fan before the accident, but now... Triple Blech. I just want to gift my close friends and family and take lots of naps this holiday. I'm 1 year 3 months out and it still hurts, though…"

Lirvie replied to Soaring Spirits's discussion When did you remove your wedding rings?
"It was 3 months later. I'm 13 months out now, and I get "phantom" ring. I'll wake up in the night and feel my ring finger. Then realize it's back in the box with his. It's strange. I usually go and look at them the next…"

Lirvie replied to Hope's discussion Is anyone mad at his/her spouse?
"I do get angry from time to time. I'm 13 months out and he left so suddenly. I'm mainly angry about his carelessness. He thought he was on top of the world. It was an accident that took him. But I just know him and I know he tested fate…"

Lirvie replied to Soaring Spirits's discussion For those who have dated... how did you know when you were ready?
"Hi, here's my account on my dating.  I lost him in September of last year.  Immediately just thrown into the abyss without my life jacket.  As it was, he was the only person around that got me.  Sure I had friends, but…"
