I've never used the off topic forum before - it seems to me looking back that everytime I was on this dang computer I was looking up treatments or clinical trials. I just wanted to say hello to everybody - I do not recognize many of the people on the BB now, and with losing Dave I am afraid to post. I mean really, who wants to hear treatment advice from somebody who lost their spouse to the disease?
It's been four months now since he's been gone, and we are picking up the pieces. The kids and I are adjusting to our new normal and just started group therapy sponsored by the Gilda's Club (in memory of Gilda Radner). It seems to help. Looking back over the last 4 years, it is amazing how much I have changed - and continue to do so. I am starting school in the spring - something that Dave always told me to do. Whenever a doc would ask me "do you work in the medical field?" he would answer "no, but she's going back to school!".
This board was such a life line to me during Dave's journey, and I thank God that I found it. I have found a really good on line young widows group that has helped me tremendously, both with my journey through grief and my kid's.
At any rate, I think of you all often - the people I met through this board will forever hold a place in my heart.
Live, laugh, love - really, it's what life is all about :)
