    I Got A New Car

    Congrats to you Laurie27!! Building that wid muscle is good!!
  3. Sorry you had to join us Joan but glad you found us. I used to describe it as being a fucking emotional yoyo. It was so unsettling feeling all the range of emotions. Hopefull it settles down for you like it did for me. RAM guess you shouldn't have done such a good job LOL Hugs to all!

    Somedays are harder than others

    Ditto to LF and J3 said. They may mean well but it really is not any of their business unless you asked them for their opinion. If you didn't, why do they even care. In my early days I found people close to me thought they could just say things to me they never would have said if DH was here. I found it bothersome and weird. At the same time I do remember that early on I was emotionally thin skinned whereas now I just ignore them. Happy quilting!! Hugs

    Moving on, Starting over... ??? Just thinking....

    Unsettling.....yes I can certainly relate to this feeling. At 6 yrs out I'm feeling stuck and not knowing where to go. RAM please don't stop 'rambling'! Your posts are so thought provoking!

    Smear Campaign

    Wow kflex, I'm sorry you have to deal with all of this ex crazy stuff. I think I'd be getting some legal advice if I were you. You need to protect you and your children from this wackjob. Hugs

    Hi Jen, here is a link to a thread that explains 'widowbago'.

    Hard day today

    Melissa, I'm so sorry for your loss of your DH. I seem to recall it felt like that's all I did was cry in those early days. One step/minute/hour/ day at at time. Whatever it takes to get through. Remember to drink water as crying is very dehydrating. Hugs to you and your daughter.

    Wish I could die today

    Baby step Bubu27, yes it stays with you in different ways over time. Thank you Twin_mom for acknowledging that my signature helped you and you certainly did not mutilate it. I am rebuilding my life and it's been a tough old slog getting there. I had no idea how all consuming this widowhood can be. I'm learning that it doesn't have to define me and I'm finding my way again. Hugs

    Emotions always so close to the edge...

    Yes, I have just come to accept this is part of who I am now. I too didn't use to be this way.

    Not sure where to start

    Lisa, I too am so sorry for your loss. Michael was a terrific writer. Hugs

    Broken Heart.

    Gem, keep going one day at a time. Are you getting out of the house at all? Try to find something you might like to do. Maybe trying "fake it till you make it" could help until you find what you may like to do. Baby steps. Hugs
