"I got so fed up with people telling me what to do, especially the ones who haven't been through a spouse dying. My parents called and told me what to do early on. I replied "When one of you die the other can pitch in, until…"
"Have you thought about grieve counseling, either in a group setting or individual? I started individual sessions before my husband died as there wasn't a support group for his illness locally and after his death, I joined both the widows…"
"Hi Imogene, thanks for posting because I can so relate. I am feeling a little better after reading your post. Like you, I don't have any children and haven't spoken to my family in years. I too feel lucky when I'm out and actually get…"
"Today is Canada Day & everyone is celebrating, having friends over. I took my dogs to off leash, felt so alone as most were couples. Came home to having to paint door frames that are peeling so bad I should have done it last year.…"
"You know it's so sad that we all sound so alike. All our thoughts, sadness and lives are all so alike. I think it was Ann who said no one can take away the pain and how true it is. Iain passed away in February, we had been together for 30…"

I too feel young, I…"
