Members mywelshcorgi Posted January 2, 2011 Members Report Share Posted January 2, 2011 On December 4th I received the call I think I always knew I was going to get. My husband of 5 years, partner and best friend for 12+ years had been found dead of a drug overdose, I feel like the only person going through this. We had no children, it was always just the two of us and our dogs and cats. I am not saying that my husband was a saint or our relationship was perfect, in fact I had moved from NJ where we lived to TX only 4 months earlier to escape what had become a toxic and dangerous environment. For the last year he had been hanging out with guys who used heroin and cocaine and being a recovering addict who had spent time in prison this was not a helay relaationship. He was unable to find anyone who would give him half a chance with a job because of the felonies he had done time for more than 8 years earlier even though he had just graduated from Rown University with a bachelor's degree in Sociology. There is not a day that goes by that I dont think about him and hesitate when I reach for the phone to call him. What do I do now? I am 34 years old and have just moved to a new state where I know no one. Its great to be with my parents but I need more. I need people my age. I dont want to be the third wheel in my parents' lives. I feel like I'm going to be alone forever but I really cant see finding anyone as special as him...
