Thank you forever

i keep trying to post my thanks and keep getting cut off.

I want to thank my angel who is making it possiable to go to california.  I don't know who it is but who ever you are, you will never know how you might have saved my life.  I have been in the holes of darkness for almost two years - can't seem to want to keep going without my love and happiness - never knew one man could be such a part of me.  I need him so much.  I hope sometime in my life I will be able to thank you in…


Help Me ...thru this one Calling out

like everyone else on this site, my life ended on 9-5-11.  Leaving me lost, heart broken and lonely.  My only saving grace was my son.  A lot stronger then I am we have been taking day by day steps.  Learning to relive our life without a husband and a great father.  We went from a great life style to poverty.  As we speak I have no idea when I will be given notice to get out of my house.  I haven't paid the morgage in 10 months so its coming.  Besides all this mess, I am making sure my son…


Isn't holidays supposed to be happy??

i am new to this and hate that I had to join this group.  My world left me 10 months ago at 47 sudden heart attack.  How do you deal with these little holidays.  These next two weeks were always our vacation weeks and here I sit alone in a house I am loosing to foreclosure.  How do you do it? All my friends are off with their husbands and I can't stop crying.  I wanted the summer to come but now it just brings back to many memories of how much fun we had.  Does the pain ever stop?

I do believe its about time we became friends!  I often see your posts, and always feel that I hurt and ache for my Scott like you do for your husband.  I am totally devoted to my Scott and always will be.  Sorry for this rough 3 year anniversary.

Thank you for thinking of me. So much has happened but on the other hand nothing of drastic significance has happened unless you count two affairs that I ended. Both were bad, and I must say, desperate choices, on my part. Both women felt hurt by me but I couldn't lead them on and make them into someone they weren't.

I haven't posted because it just brings back opens old wounds that have finally started to heal. After three years and three months I am slowly settling into the recognition that I will probably live my life without another partner and that I have to make the best of that.

I still struggle with the awful vivid memories etched into me of Betty's end of life suffering, but I know long break down when they comes as they do several times a week. I even managed to handle sitting in bed last night watching the horrible reporting on the marathon bombs without Betty by my side as she should have been sharing out feelings together as we watched the street we'd walked together so many times in Boston turned into a carnage zone.

I though about how we were together when the planes crashed into the Twin Towers and how we cried and went into shock together.

camp widow is a remarkable gift. Go with openness, and you will find love and acceptance and tools for healing.  I am thrilled for you. It really helped me. MIND you, there were times that I felt lonely... but it's all part of it. The benefits were remarkable for me. Best of luck, continued healing. 

and oh yeah....HAVE SOME FREAKING FUN!!!!!!!!!!! :)

Dear crying, i ready your post from yesterday and just wanted to tell you that my heart goes out to you in losing your husband. (I can see you guys had something very special.) That's already way too much to deal with. The other stuff SUCKS!! I'm sending you all the hopes and good wishes possible to find an even better job, and that the next place you live is a place you like and, all in all, an easier situation. I'm so glad your son is there with you in this. I know we are all pulling for you. Hang in there sweetie.

well today was a year.  Just when you think your life couldn't get worse it does.  i lost my job today, so now officialy I have no husband, no house  (going into foreclosurer), no medical insurance and no job.  And all I heard for a year was it is going to get better.

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your son today...hope you are doing as well as can be expected. Hope you find some joy in the happiness and love the two of you shared. ((HUGS))
