Oh, internet world, life has dealt me quite a hand. I am a middle-aged widow with MS, and a cancer survivor. I’ll be blogging about the MS and cancer later, though, because I don’t want to, right off the bat, get your brain as overwhelmed as mine is. But as for the issue of widowhood, let’s talk about it.
First off, this ain’t my first rodeo…
I was the ripe young age of 28 and married for one month and one day when my first husband, Bruce, died in a dirt bike accident. So in 2012 when a heart attack took my second husband, Tom, of 13 years, I guess you can say I was somewhat prepared for the mental anguish that one goes through after the death of a loved one.
That doesn’t mean it hurt less. That doesn’t mean I didn’t at times feel like I was going crazy. That doesn’t mean I didn’t have to take time to heal. Hell, I am still healing – from both losses.
Hopefully this blog will help with my healing. Maybe it will even help you.
