- Lost a loved one
It's been close to 2 years since My Liz was taken from us after a 5 year ALS battle. And yes I have started a new life with a wonderful new Wife. The last 3 months have been horrible. I can't shake the feeling I'm cheating on Liz and shouldn't be happy. Thankfully my 2 children are not only learning happiness is OK and so is missing Mom.They have found a very healthy balance and enjoy talking about Mom with Dayle ( my new wife ) who knew Liz. I really thought I had survived the years of caregiving pretty well. But it would seem as though I had a delayed reaction to it possibly. I've become a completely different person. Very needy and clingy and overly jealous. All things the old Me wasn't. I've become a huge burden on my wife, I can tell. As much as I love My Wife I just want my old life back. Or at the very least as strange as this may sound I need Liz's permission to be happy and continue moving ahead.
