The UW in my name stands for unwedded widow. My fiance Ron died from a sudden heart attack caused by severe obesity on September 4, 2004. He was 34.
My mission, which grew out of my loss, is to love people "from the inside out" and motivate others to do the same. I blog about this, as well as other issues of appearance and acceptance, at http://lovingfromtheinsideout.blogspot.com.
I also blog about my efforts to reclaim my life from much pain and heartache (from widowhood as well as other things) and to find some personal happiness, along with whatever other topics I feel like here: http://aroadlesstraveledblog.blogspot.com/.

My name is Tiffany and Doug02122014 suggested I speak with you. We were discussing unwed-widows and he said that you actually run a Wid group in Ohio. (I am struggling a bit with the term widow because my love and I were unable to get married before he was killed). Not sure what else to say. Just wanted to make a connection.
Just wanted to let know I won't be able to make tonight's event. Couldn't get babysitter, also I never got to sleep lady night ( another bad day ), & I'm going to be out on road with job till 9:00 or later tonight. My goal now is to make it back without going to sleep.
Thanks for getting back with me. I just got through replying to Dianne's reply about your upcoming event(s). I don't think I'll be able to make your groups next event 3/28/14 due in part to the long drive (about 2-1/2 hrs 1-way) after work. There's other issues I'd have to get ironed out too if I was going to attend. I'll keep checking the events calendar & maybe I'll get to one sometime.
What is the typical make-up (men to women ratio) of the attendees? I would hate to make the drive to be the only guy there & creep-out a group of ladies. With the way this world is today, I think I can understand the uneasiness a guys presence would cause. I just want to meet with a group of people who "get it" and try to get back to my old self. I mean my new self whatever that is going to look like. I've read on WV the old self is a thing of the past now. I got a lot to learn & the sooner the better.
Who's going to Camp Widow West and wants to share a room?? If we put 4 in a room, that'd only be $54.75/night at the CW rate. The flight there is gonna be insane, so the cheaper the room is the better! If you wanna bunk together and save $, Inbox me here (or on FB if you're on my FB).
