So sorry we have to meet this way, I am Arnie from NJ and offer friendship and a ear when needed. I do not write much but love the chat feature so I hope to see you there. My losses are many in short times, a 19 yr old son, a wife of 21-1/2 yrs, a Dad and BF wife all in span of less than 7 months, new and very deep but I have found an amazing place of comfort and healing, this place has been a big part of it. The rest of my "healing" is for private conversations. Just wanted to say Hi and welcome to the club no one wanted to belong to.
I hope you'll send me a note if you are still not finding value in the site -- sometimes just reading around (listening in) can be a good way to start... before you know it, you'll want to respond to something you hear and share your own experiences.
(I've left this reply on the discussion Forum where you posted this query, and also send you a private message. Sorry for repeating myself but I wanted to make sure you receive it!)
Gill I want to welcome you to our little community of support. I know you are hurting so from your friends in Widowed Village here is a (((BIG HUG))). When you are grieving and your family and friends do not understand what you are going through, come here and tell us your feelings, I guarantee we will understand because we are going through the same things and we will do our best to give you support.
If you hear the bleeps that means that there are widows in chat talking. Go on over there and see what the topic is. Then when you are ready say Hi I am New. You will be welcomed. If you are hurting then say Hi I am new and Having a bad day. Those on chat will come to you with support. I am looking forward to meeting you on chat.
