Having a hard time

You're welcome.  Hope I didn't come off as preaching...hate that.  just remember so well the beginning few months when it was hard to even breathe  let alone sleep...nutrition was not my problem- lack of sleep was because I was so lonely and scared after 44yr with one man(husband) and the horrors of unexpected death.
