    Good to hear from you Paul. I really felt I was doing well up until this last month. Had surgery on Sept 23rd and had to stop "doing" for awhile. Got into my head too much I guess. Hoping to get an all clear from doc this Thursday to get active again. It helps me.
  2. I live in Lorain, Ohio, by the lake. Anyone close by?

    Yes I am so sorry. It's extremely difficult,
  7. Sorry, if you are still here I got caught up in the chat room. My mornings are hard to take and I need conversation. Didn't mean to leave you hanging.

    Gert & Rose.

    This site does amaze me. Mostly all 50 US states but internationally as well. Several from Canada, one from India, and a gal from Germany. So, the two of you from South Africa. I often wonder how people found this site in the first place. I remember those endless nights of insomnia. Fumbling around in the middle of the night. Looking up grief topics in an effort to begin to comprehend how and why this life experience was and is so devastating. Coming here was not intentional but random clicking.

    Rose, we do need a conversation. I will start a day with coffee. Then correspondence. Many from here. Some NPR for news. The local paper online to know what happened in the world as I slept.

    Glad you both got here. Hope it helps.

    Paul M.
