      Hi all,  I'm sure you've noticed some changes in the forums. We've again had to do some updates, so that's why things may look a little different. Nothing major should have changed.  Also, we are going to start adding advertisements sensitive to our community on the boards. This is something we are experimenting with, and we will certainly make sure they are in the best interests of everyone. We want to make sure our forums continue to stay accessible and cost free to all of our members, and this is a way to ensure this.  If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to privately message me or email me at Konnie@beyondindigo.com.  As always, we will be here with you, ModKonnie

    KC, You should write a book ! What a,strong woman you are to have survived all of that and still manage to have a positive attitude and help others! Maybe Francine could co-author it with you, you both have a way with words. I sure would read it.

    Missy, I am so sorry for your loss. In the first few weeks after my husband passed I was so consumed with grief I felt like i was losing my mind. I couldn't function. It has been three months and I still cry everyday but my head has cleared a little . My husband passed suddenly of a heart attack , it was so hard to believe he was gone. Some days it is still hard to believe. Keep posting here, the people here truly care and totally get get how you are feeling. My heart goes out to you and your children.

    I I used to want to take care of myself and actually said to my husband a few weeks before he passed that we need to be healthier so we can be around for our grandchildren some day. Now when i feel any pain I'm like bring it on I'm ready to go. I don't have the fight in me either.
  5. Want to share my experience.

    Thank you Andy. Tonight has been rough, feeling very overwhelmed with all the responsibility of the house, yard , bills ,kids all while working full time and most of all missing my husband. Feeling sorry for myself I guess. I will try not to lose hope although today it is not within reach. Maybe tomorrow will be better. I'm happy you are on the right path! I hope to find that path someday too.
  6. Want to share my experience.

    Thank you Andy for your post, gives me hope that maybe there is some light at the end of the tunnel.

    I'm Irish and we tend to like a drink or two or three. I just know it will make me more depressed so i don't even attempt it. I lost both my parents by the time I was 19 and it was devastating but not even close to what I am feeling now. I just feel like the pain will never end, how can I live the rest of my life this way. I just wish I could turn it off.
  8. One year ago - today

    Your post has given me hope ,thank you! Like Toodevestaded said it's nice to know there's light at the end of the tunnel even if i don't see it or believe it. My husband died of a heart attack three months ago at the age of fifty. I'm so sad all the time but grateful for this amazing group of people here always giving advice and support. I want to get to the end of that tunnel so desperately, but I'm stuck. I feel like that movie Groundhog Day. Wake up and repeat. I'm not living just existing.

    I'm sorry for your loss. My husband passed suddenly from a heart attack at the age of fifty three months ago. I struggle every day to just breathe. I miss him terribly and wonder if this agony will subside a bit. I too wish I was the type who could drink but i dont think anything could numb the pain we are feeling. I have children as well but I try not to bring up what i am feeling so i don't add to their grief and cause them to worry. I never knew pain like this before. This group has helped me feel not so alone and I can say how i feel with no judgement. My heart goes out to everyone here.
  10. Songs with your loved ones

    Beautiful I love Norah Jones
  11. Songs with your loved ones

    The last song my husband and I listened to the day he passed was Let It Be, we played it at his funeral. I now have it tattooed on my foot. Our wedding song was Have I told you lately that I love you by Van Morrison. I try not to listen to music anymore brings up too many emotions for me. I listen to pod casts when I drive instead.
  12. There are so many crab apples that are laying in the back yard from the trees , I'm hoping they ferment and I can get drunk off them whIle I'm smoking and talking to myself.
  13. Love this, and it made me cry too.
  14. I had quit smoking before Doug passed, even took up running, wanted to be healthy so we could grow old together. Back to a pack a day and eat donuts for dinner in bed. I always said the F word nothing changed there. This new normal Fn sucks!!
  15. Holiday Decorations

    I have absolutely no desire to celebrate any of the holidays. How do I look at all the dad ornaments our kids gave him over the years or his Celtics and Kansas City chiefs ornaments. I have to have a tree because even though the kids are older they would want one. I personally want to just hide in bed. It is going to be so painful now that he is gone. I wish I could just skip over it. I have no idea how to get through today much less the holidays. This is so hard.
