My daughter was in a serious car accident this morning.  She was driving to Kansas City.  She has been airlifted to a hospital three and a half hours from here.  All my son-in-law knows is that she is "stable" and has a fractured or broken pelvis.  Does anyone know if that is life threatening?  Please, please we need prayers!  Thank you.LindaSee More

It's been 4.5 years since my husband of 45 years died suddenly.  I gradually fell into a deep, dark depression that nothing I try and nothing my doctor or therapist try helps.  Also major anxiety that only gets worse.  My family, once so close, has fallen apart.  I have no support system.  Is it wrong to consider just taking myself out of this hell?  I won't do it, but I want to.  Sorry for the downer, I just have nowhere else to turn.LindaSee More

Tomorrow, Feb. 17th, will mark 4 years since my husband's death. That was the last "normal" day of my life.  I died that evening too, and can't seem to come back to life.

I met my husband when I was 16, married at 18, and was 64 when he died.  So we were together for 48 years.  He was my first and only love.  He died in an instant from a blood clot to the heart.  He was a strong, healthy man who loved life.  I…

Thanks for your friend request -- my husband also died suddenly in 2015 -- seems like it should, well everyone says, it gets better with time...   I don't know, miss him still everyday. and seems like just yesterday.  Anyway, we got that in common.   I am looking forward to our friendship.
