Hi, I'm not sure if this is the right pace to post.  But I blog about being widow.  Writing has helped me.  I have gotten some kind comments from other widowed folk that my writing has been useful to them.  I recently put up an article on the lasting guilt I felt  from being a very flawed caregiver for my husband when he was dying of cancer.   Forgiving the caregiver on The Huffington Post I've also done an article on being really pushy to collect on his estate and facing bureaucracy.  I was a Bitch After My Husband's death.  And I wrote about how I feel like an alien even tough its been two and a half years since he died. 

If anyone wants to read this stuff, I'm at The Hungover Widow

I'm sorry to sound like an ad, but writing has helped me very much since my husband died two and a half years ago.  Some people said my caregiver article helped them.

AND NOW I just read the second article and LOVED IT!!  I was screwed over on my husband's  pension and SO wish I'd had you for an attorney!  You are awesome.

I read your article "Forgiving the caregiver" and it resonated in me like a gong.  I actually yelled at my husband, "If you don't let me give you this shot right now I will kill you myself!"
