"MegBee, I haven't posted in a while but your situation struck a chord with me. I lost my husband of nearly 25 years in May 2016. Since his diagnosis in early 2015, most of his family has been MIA. Not really unkind, just absent. I really did…"

Coming up on a year and feeling sad

Today I broke down on my way out of my accountant's office... just looking at all of the medical bills and such. I don't know if it is the year anniversary or the fact that…See More
