Long time since I have written. I have thought about it many times. I do too much thinking these days. Wednesday would have been Ron's 62nd birthday. It still feels so strange. I am still not able to accept I won't see him again. I miss him more than I can say. My heart is…

    I have been checking off and on this weekend for updates from my friends here. Not many have updated. I really enjoy reading other OD's here. When I don't see anything recent from my friends here I worry. I think OD is making a slow comeback. I remember how popular it was before. Most would…

    I took a mental health day from work today. Happy for the long weekend. I am sure I won't do anything special or exciting. I am clearly depressed. For so many reasons. And I can't seem to snap out of it. My life is dull, boring, worthless, and not sure I even want to be…

    Good Sunday Morning. I am enjoying my time off from the job I hate.  I have to be honest. I didn't do much of anything yesterday. I did get up early and went to Walmart to get some groceries and came home. I posted here, cleaned out my mailboxes, and the rest of the day…

    I know it has been awhile. So much going on. And my thoughts are a jumbled mess. I am off work today. Trying to catch up on so many things. Too bad I couldn't have caught up on sleep. But try as I might rest does not come right now. I sleep about 4-5 hours…

    I know it's been awhile since I was here.  I am struggling. Struggling with a few things. The loss of my husband is greater than I ever thought it would be. I am still waking up in the morning having to remind myself he is gone. I find myself checking my phone several times a…

    I don't even know where to start. So much has happened since I was here last. I don't know how it came to this. My whole life changed overnight. I got the call early Friday, April 13th, 2018. The call that my husband had passed away around 3 a.m. They were trying to reach my…
