    A Strange Dream

    Well, back is still healing, but i can walk 2 miles, which I do daily to help it heal. I'm finally able to pull a few weeds, but have to watch. I've also been working shorter days to try and help as well. I hope you are all well. hugs

    A Strange Dream

    Thank you Laurie, Mattress is just 3 years old and pillows about a year. I do well in bed, but sitting is more of an issue. I will get the new info on what I need to be doing now from the Chiro today. Probably need to work shorter days for a bit. Hugs

    Made it through last week, then this week had to attend the funeral of Brian's Aunt. She was 97, she lived a very good life. Parts of the service were hard, but we went as a family and good times were had with relatives we don't see very often. Life marches on. Came home to a house full of...

    A Strange Dream

    It's been a rough week. Our 39th anniversary would have been this past Friday. Times like these I miss Brian more than I can say. I pushed through and I'm ok now. I will tear up a bit, but not as bad as earlier in the week. Will this ever end? I have no idea. I hope everyone is doing...

    SeaGunny’s thread

    Grief is fickle. I am out 5 years, and most days are good, however certain times of year are hard. This past Friday would have been our 39th wedding anniversary. Yeah, the week was a mess. I will say finding a counselor/therapist for a one on one is the way to go. It may take a few tries to...
