"Sue, I love what you wrote below. I think about the steps I am taking every single day. I will take a step back and then I will take two more steps forward. Some steps back will be repeated others are gone forever. But I feel like I recognize those…"
"Thanks for the support Alexandra! It sounds like Dave was quite the reward...I am so glad your heart got to experience that but am very sorry for your loss. I have not thought of myself as courageous in a long time...I so appreciate you saying that.…"
"I have not posted much lately but always feel safe here. It has been 2 months since my husband passed...but the truth is I lost him long before. 10 years ago he changed and our relationship went directly into verbal abuse. It took me a long time to…"
"Yes, I have a girlfriend coming over tonight for a few days to help me...see if we can do some mind over matter. I think there are just too many feelings swirling right now - guilt, loss, fear, etc. Once I am able to reconcile these I know that…"

"I understand that completely. I also have 3 young children...and one of my 6 year olds is special needs. It is so hard every day to parent them alone...I feel look an octopus. I also feel as if I am failing. Hugs."
"Oh love...I am so sorry. I lost my husband on July 1st and it's all so incredibly raw. Every day has been a challenge. I feel similarly to you...numb and dead inside. Friends want to help and I want to hide. I wish I could give you more words…"
"Hugs to you...
I get the life sucking part...I am there as well. I lost my husband on July 1st and have 3 little ones (6 year old twins and an 11 year old). He was only 38.
I am new here too but already the messages are helping me. Stronger inch by…"
"Hi there. I lost my husband on July 1st...tomorrow is my wedding anniversary. He had a very rare liver disease that wreaked havoc on his body...he never got to the transplant phase. He was only 38. We moved to Georgia for my new job in Jan '15…"
