Plastic Flowers

January 29th 2016 marked 1 year without Tim. 

Tim's mom Arlis and I visited his site with his sister and brother-in-law, Dawn & Ed.   Mom planned the route: stop at the Dollar Store first.  For a split second I thought what, why, huh, dollar store flowers, really?  This just shows how little I know…

I haven't logged onto this site for a while but Heatha was kind enough to send me a nice note in hopes I'm doing alright. 

I really appreciate that. 

And the answer is I'm doing okay : )  

I will check in here from time to time to at least view from the sidelines (modus…

Today marks 6 months

Today marks 6 months. 

I am going to commemorate it by eating the other half of a frozen pizza Tim had made himself from scratch, dough and sauce to boot.  I found it last week.  It'll probably taste like a mastodon chipped from the tundra of Siberia but throwing it out just doesn't seem right.  Too salty for the vegetable garden compost, certainly not something the dogs may have ("no means no"), so I'll eat it.  If I'm unpleasant to be around while I do…

Here's to Tim and from us to you.

I went to an actual social function yesterday evening. 

I went alone.

It was weird. 

It was also liberating.  Maybe 'liberating' isn't the right word... 'defining' maybe? 

This was the first time I've done anything social since his open house non-memorial memorial party in March.  I haven't wanted to see anyone because the one person I want to see more than any other is gone, therefore I want nobody.  That's a dangerous logic. 

It was a garden party…

Hi Andrew,

Thank for the warm welcome. I am so angry and hurt by all this. I plan so much around my son, now I have nothing to live or look forward to. All my lifeI plan everything around him. Where do I go from here? Whose going to look after me? My son was a good child how could a another person  take another life for no reason, just because you are jealous. I pray that God removed this sad feeling, this hole in my heart. Well Andrew for listen to me.

Hi Andrew,
Thanks for your welcome message! I'm still coping with my 20 years partner passed away in April 6 due to horrible car accident. I agreed about navigation of this site, but it's all good and comfort of reading others' losses and grieving, stories... It sure help lots.

Have you belonged to this Legacy group for long and do you find it is helpful? I also belong to a Meetup/LGBT Widowers and Widows group in the NYC area and find people are very nice but they do not meet often. And when they do only 2 or 3 members bother to attend even though membership is close to 50 people. I do not want company in my misery, by the way. I am hoping to learn how others have come to deal with grief and loneliness effectively.

Dear Andrew,

Thank you for your comment so soon after I posted on Legacy today.  While your loss has been for 4 months it is now 7 months for me. I can tell you that time does NOT heal all wounds. I find myself looking back at 53 years of great happiness and compatablity and do not see anything to look forward to. I hate the loneliness. Since our retirements 15 years ago we were together 24/7 and now, suddenly, everything I do is alone. I have no family or friends in close proximity and depend upon frequent e-mails to and from those that remain to keep  in touch with reality. If you would like to stay in touch with me that would be great. Perhaps we can be of some help to each other in understanding and handling our grief and loneliness.

Steve
