Thank you Susan, for your kind words. I have learned that it's okay to cry, that helps me get the grief off my chest, if even for that short 5 minute crying spell. I have listened to people tell me I should be past this, but nobody knows unless they're in my shoes. I never dealt with my husband's death I don't think..I jumped right into another relationship because my fear of being lonely gripped me so tight I didn't WANT to be lonely. Being alone meant I head to deal with something that I didn't want to deal with. I jumped into a relationship b/c it kept me active, it kept my mind off of where it needed to be, which was dealing with losing my husband. To this day I haven't dealt with it fully. I find myself thinking of my husband quite often, but especially the times when my current relationship just seems to SUCK! I remember all the stupid things my husband and I would argue about and think "that was nothing compared to this, had I known...." but I know that I cannot go back and change things. I thought I was doing fine until the crying spells kept coming more often, and the thoughts of my husband were first and foremost in my mind. I thought I was dealing with it the best way possible until I realized I was getting angry at my husband, angry at God for taking him away from me. I have learned that my faith needed some renewing since I was getting angry at God. I learned a lot about myself since my husband passed, and one of those was that I had lost my religion somewhere between my childhood and my adult life. I learned that writing my feelings down also seems to help a lot. For a while, every week, I would write (blog) a letter to my husband, but eventually that faded as well. Thank you for speaking with me, and listening to me. It really is nice to be able to speak to someone who has been there and done that. I sometimes feel bad for saying things to my family, although they've always been there for me, but they just don't get it. They don't understand and I feel as if I'm a burden to them when I speak of these again, thank you. :)

Thank you, Susan. I will definitely check out the website. It's been a tough week. My boy would've been 6 months old on Monday. On Monday, they put his headstone up at the cemetary. I've started a blog ( and I am going to try to add a link to my baby's website. Thanks again, I'll be keeping us both in my prayers...
