Hi John,
I am so sorry for the loss of Doyle.
Welcome to the family of webhealing.  You will find many wonderful and helpful people here who really care about you and know the hurt, pain and suffering you are going through. Many offer good advice and some just read the posts, but all do care.  It is a long tough road ahead, but everyone here gets what you are going through.  Family and friends sometimes don't understand and although they mean well, as I have experienced it's not always good for you.  I have lost many friends since my husband passed in May 2011,  and made some new ones.
May you find some peace in the days ahead....

Hello to all,
Just a quick note to say hello and hoping everyone is doing well. Or as well as can be expected.
I haven't been on in a while, keeping busy with Matt, college hunting, SAT prep, again....and the usual, working taking care of the house, which by the way I am re-thinking whether or not to stay in, it's just way too much for me to take care of by myself.  Don't want to make any rash decisions yet, so many memories, good and bad, some how the good outweigh the bad now. :love4:  Guess I really am starting to heal.
Matt is still in grief counseling and doing so much better.  I still have my bad days, but the memories keep me going now, no truer love will I ever find than what I had with Bill and for that I am thankful.
Probably won't make any decisions on the house sitution until Matt goes to college next fall, but will keep you posted.
Bye for now and hope evryone is hanging in there, I see a little light at the end of my tunnell... :icon_flower:
As always I wish peaceful days ahead for all!


Hoping you have had a day filled with happy memories to honor your precious Maureen.
As always wishing you peaceful days ahead...

Sorry to hear you were ill, hope you are feeling much better.
It's wonderful the friendship you and Kevin have, unfortunate how it came to be though.
May you have a peaceful day...

You did what is right for you and that is important!  Sometimes we all need to do that and don"t.

Thinking of you.

I agree with all of the above, you can't change yesterday, but you can change tomorrow. Let go of what you have done and learn the lesson.
I too have made some over indulging mistakes along the way and I would think most of us do in one way or another.
You just need to move past it.
Hoping peaceful days ahead for us all.

Thanks Pam!
Been a while since I have been on here and posted.
It's been a tough day, but we are making it through, not only Bill's Birthday, but also the first Angel date of my loving nephew Charlie.  I thought it would be easier, but time just doesn't seem to be healing for me. Today in the mail I received Matt's Senior picture package and just damn near cried my eyes out! Very emotional for me.  I wnt to the cemetary and a good cry there as well, so I think I could be cried out for the day.
On a good note, Matt is doing so much better. Laughing and joking like his old self again, grief counseling has done wonders for him.
Will post again soon, when I'm not such an emotional wreck..
Hope peaceful days ahead for all.

Sorry, haven't checked in a while.  Thank you so much for asking...........we're getting there one day at a time.  Long process with baby steps for me.  On a good note Matt is doing much better!!  He is seeing a grief counselor and has been going every week one on one, I FINALLY found someone he can relate with.   His counselor is a High School algebra teacher that has a degree in Psycology and does counseling at night and on the weekends, he is wonderful!!  matt has made alot of progress and is now going to start going evry third week.  He will be a Senior this year so we will keep busy, college searching and all the fun stuff that goes with being a senior.  Going on vacation the second week in August and so looking forward to just getting away, I rented  beach house and Matt is bringing one of his friends. 
I'm finding my life is just roller coaster, still good days and bad.  I still find myself looking for Bill though and still have nightmares of that horrible day, but they are not as frequent as they were.  Someday I hope to come out of my isolation, but for now I am just still trying to make it through the days............
Hope all is well with you and HOPE one day we may all find the peace we so deserve to have.

Sorry to hear things are messy with you, too much at one time and we all get overwelmed with the day to day.
Maybe for your friend you can set aside a specific amount of time to spend with her?
As for your move, only you know what is right, but sometimes a "new" beginning leads to a fresh outlook.
Good luck with whatever you choose.
May some calm and peace find it's way to you soon.

I am sorry for your loss and welcome to the site.  It is a wonderful place to express your feelings, good or bad and everyone is here for you without any judgements.  You can feel free to post your feelings on bad days and good as well.
Love your memorial tabe!
Unfortunately for people that have not gone through such a great loss their undersatnding is lacking and as others have posted, myself as well, people, even family will "suggest" what they feel is right for us, not knowing the hurt and pain that it causes us.  Sometimes family and friends mean well, it just isn't their call to make.
May you find some peace in the days to come and know we are all here for you.

I'm sorry to hear all of you having this problem, but I am glad I am not the only one!  I was starting to really worry I was losing my mind, litterally......
May the days ahead be better for all of us, this journey really is hard.

Your letter made me cry as well.  We all feel some type of guilt, not that any of thiis our fault, but the feelings are there and some days seem stronger than other days.
May we all find some peace and calm in our lives in the days ahead.
