Welcome MamaWoolf, I so sorry for the reason your here...but glad you found us. You will find great understanding here with people that truly "Get It". None of us ever wanted to belong to this group called widows, but I'm glad I can share with others feeling that no other would understand.
Hi MamaWolf I am glad you found us but so sorry you had to look. We are all on this crazy journey of tears. I know your pain and here is a big (((HUG))) from a big man. When you are feeling really down and out and hurting inside and aching for your love to sit beside you. You try to explain your feelings to your family and friends and they don't understand what you are telling them, come on over to Widowed Village and tell us. We will understand because the pain and grief you are experiencing is also the pain and grief we are experiencing. We are walking in your shoes. You have support here from all over the world. The other day I saw a man who was having a very bad day, and the three people who were giving him support and comfort, one was from UK, another from Canada and the third was from Australia. This is truly an international community.
When you are logged into this site you will hear the funny little beeps, that means that there are people on live chat talking to each other. I don't know about you but for me the worst time to be alone is in the evening. Sitting in my empty house and mourning my loss. This happens to a lot of us and so we will go over to the chat area to talk with our friends. Drop on by and see what the subject is, most of the time it is just joking around and being frivelous, but if someone comes on who is hurting and needs comfort, the mood changes and we are all there for them. Drop on by and just say Hi I am new. We will all greet you and if you want to participate in the chat that is great or if you just want to lurk for a while that is ok also.
MamaWoolf I see you are up north of me. I live in Puyallup and my Madeline died May 16 of a lung disease. We have quite a few members here in Washington so you are not alone here.
