"Slick,  You realize that it is ok to say no.  It is paramount that YOU take care of YOU.  Kids, no matter what age, can be awful.  I hope there's no damage that necessitates surgery! "

"Joan1944, I will see if we can find someone closer to your location. I have found, through meetup, other groups that I have had fun being involved with. If I find out something I will let you know!"

"I am almost done planning a trip to Costa Rica at the end of May. 9 days of doing whatever I want! Last year I traveled on the anniversary of his death and it was good. So I decided to do it again! Cuba sounds amazing!"

Profile Information

Would you like to add a statement about you to your profile page? For example, the URL of a blog? This answer will be VISIBLE on your profile page.
I have decided to change this up because, I am not the same person I was when I first came here.
You may not believe it now, but trust me when I say that you will not always feel as awful as you do now. It's hard to believe that you will ever smile again, or feel an ounce of joy. I'm here to tell you that you will.
You will learn that life, while different, can be good. You will learn about a whole new you. You will learn about a YOU that wasn't there before.
Don't ever be afraid that you will forget your person. They are woven into us. Every breath we take, they are there. Every thought we have, they are there.
Please don't worry about the opinions of others. Do what feels right for you. Talk about your love. Never stay quiet because it may make others uncomfortable. Be authentic in your grief, just as you were in your love.
Most of all, be gentle with yourself. We are survivors of a trauma so great, and so deep, that it's a miracle we come through it at all!
Every day is a new and beautiful day... full of HOPE! Cause HOPE MATTERS!

Hi Sue,

 

Thank you for your kind words.  I am heading down on Friday too and will look for you to introduce myself. I was half bald until recently as well. My daughters and I shaved half of our heads in solidarity for my husband who was going through chemo. I am a short red head. Looking forward to meeting you.

 

Hugs and peace to you as well,

 

Natalie

Thank you!! I will do the same. I probably won't register until it gets closer. Just need to see what I have going on with the kids, but I am really thinking/planning to go and would like to help. Hope we can meet.

Meant to ask, how you offered to volunteer for CWW? Thinking it would be a good idea.  Hope you are having a good night.

Have you been before? I have not. July will be three years for me. I agree that it would be a great way to meet people. I will keep you posted.

Thinking about going. At least maybe attending the workshops. Not really sure yet. I am in San Diego. Are you?

sueprnova - I just sent you a friend request but I would also like to send you a private message.  I think we have to be friends to do that.  I'm not very good with this site.  Hopefully you will approve my friend request and I can ask your opinion on something.  Thanks!!
