The Rollercoaster Ride

Posted on April 24, 2015 at 2:00am 1 Comment

It's a fairground ride none of us want to be on, no big queues to get a seat on here, no rave reviews of how 'you have to take a ride'.

It's the Rollercoaster from hell, price of admission is the loss of your soul mate, having them ripped from your life in an instant.

I hope you are happy and with your parents and my loved ones, look after the boys - they need a Dad and couldn't get better than you.

The kids are great, you would be so proud, did you see the way Mark Jnr looked out for me at your funeral? Hes…

Over the last few weeks I have noticed an new optimism in my thoughts, that maybe my life can go on, I can be happy again.

I am eating again and not only eating but cooking real food and not just throwing stuff in the microwave.

I received the worst news since his death last week - had his doctors followed the care plan they laid out for him then his cancer should have been detected in time for successful treatment, he should still be…

Dear TG
Many times a heart can be broken....lost three family members in two years and then my husband in april 2014....many times the heart breaks but the worst is losing your life friend,companion,lover, is unbearable and yet your heart keeps on is unfathomable and your heart does its is the end of your world and your heart slyly keeps on....and the loneliness is sb famous said...if your special person is gone the world is depopulated....whereever you are...with friends or in a crowd of strangers you keep looking for him though you know he will not be is this state of expectancy of the impossible I find so hard to bear...big hugs
