    Pete, glad things are going a little easier for you, if you are similar to me, which I think you are, you will probably get to feel a little guilty that things are a little easier, Pete you just can't help feeling that way!!!!!!!!!! I struggled and struggled but have just booked 10 days in Helen and my favourite destination.  Felt so good when I booked it but a couple of days later thought "what have I done!!!"...

      Pete, I would just like to share with you and all on the site where I am at present. I went to Portugal last month for a week with my son, daughter-in-law and granddaughter. I just dreaded going but forced myself. During the week I did my thing and my son and his family did there's. I spent most days on my own, reading, listening to my music, going out for a drink and something to eat at lunchtime and just taking up...

        Pete, like Punky no words of wisdom from me.  I could say it gets easier with time, which it will, but that is of little consquence to you at this time.  I could say remember the good times with Misty, but I found that so difficult and when I did it somehow made it worse because I knew those good times would not happen again with Helen. I often used to think that I wish I had gone first but then I would be ...

          Yes DP we are all in the same boat, and throwing out water as fast as we can!! As you say the tips about making time for yourself are great but HOW!!  Glad to hear your husband is doing well that is the major thing to hang on too, that is the thing that really kept me going - until it did'nt.  All I can say is just keep on doing what you are doing, hang on to that man and do all that you can to keep him wit...

            Lisa, you went beyond what most could expect. Greg would have certainly been in far worst position if you had not been there to support him and I think he and you know that, particularly Greg knew that. However bad things got between you and Greg you are going to suffer like all of us here, and we know what that suffering is - as Patty and Marge have said you now need to find a place to take some of that suffering aw...

              Pete, I find it so amazing that a group of people who have never met and are so far apart can feel so much for each other, I really don't know what I would have done without CC. Pete a year on and I still feel so lost but the contact here gives me some hope that I will find a way through.  And its also like a good friend that you don't have to talk all the time but when you need to that good friend will respond....

                Just to say, I don't mind an expensive bar, with (relatively!!) more expensive beer and an OK band, but you know what I mean!!! Ray

                  Wow! a get together in a low bar, with cheap beer and a great band!!, sign me up right now!!!!!!!!!!!  I would just love that get together with people I see as my family!!  Pete when I got your message I had just got out of bed but I did not want too.  I am doing better, I really am, but I still don't feel any need to get up in the morning - I think that must be my next measuring point - to find a nee...

                    Oh Boy James, this is so hard, how to control all these emotions for all the people involved.  I wish I could throw in an absolute solution but I don't see how it is possible. Your brother and his wife must be going through so much turmoil with the issues with their daughter.  How you can console your mother when she is so far away is just so difficult to imagine.  I don't know how difficult it is to g...

                      Pete, I cried when I read what you said, this weekend is so precious to me and I just feel so close to you, Misty was right you have to move on but you and I and all our friends her know its not going to be easy.  I am so grateful to have made this contact with CC, its my lifeline and I just wish I could just hold your hand.  Ray
