I have my sons but do not want to share some of the scary stuff - this is why I was so happy to find Widowed Village - I do not have to keep my hurt inside - I will not ever tell my sons - I have told one person MSW - she said the one son did not mean it - he was drunk. Right - ?????

I am so glad that you mentioned how you felt with the widow support group you've encountered! I want to be able to talk more with people closer to my age -- I may have lost a husband, but that does not mean that I necessarily remain celibate the rest of my days. I'm young, healthy (mostly), and still dream of having someone to grow old with. NOT that I am looking to "replace" my husband -- he was a kind, interesting, artistic man, but he had his faults, as do I -- but hopefully I can find someone that is as comfortable with who they are as my husband was. I hope you too can find someone who will provide more good days than bad. And keep in touch.
Hi there -- I can sort of understand where you're coming from. I get that way -- I just grieve for everyone/thing that I have lost. and it seems that when I get the grief under control, something else opens up that chasm all over again. I wish I had some words of consolation for you. All I can say is that I do understand what you're going through.
