We're friends, not doctors, financial or legal professionals, and we're not "grief experts." But we are here, and we've been "there."

So, here I am 1 year and 6 days since I lost my husband.  I met him online 17 years ago and he lived in NYC and I lived in Canada.  After a year of long distant dating, he asked me to marry him, and I said yes and moved my son and myself to NYC.  We soon moved from there to New Jersey where I still live today.  I feel completely lost because I did not grow up in this country and my family is in Canada.  Oh yes, I get along with his family, but I find lately they have been excluding me from family get togethers; maybe it's because they know I have to have my son drive me to the places far away and he works a lot, but you know, just the not being asked hurts more than anything.  I find out on Facebook that they have all gone somewhere together and they are posting pictures of all the fun they are having and all I can think of is if my husband was here we would be there too.  I hate being a widow and I don't want to be anymore, I just want my husband back.

I get what you are saying, Frank's brother had his 80th birthday recently, saw it on FB. After many years of feeling like an outsider in that family (I was his 3rd wife) I felt I had finally been included. But I guess I was wrong. (((hugs)))
