Hi everybody. I haven't been to a meeting for a couple of weeks, and although i am doing well, i feel the need to get this off my chest. For the longest time, when i spoke at a meeting, i was always an emotional wreck. I let it ALL out, because it felt safe to do so. It was like i was breaking open, and all the pain,fear, humiliation and sorrow all poured out. Thinking back, i don't even know if i made sence at all lol but one thing i do know is that i will be forever grateful for all those people who listened with compassion and symapthy. Especially the wonderful people who came to me afterwards to give me a pat on the back, a word of comfort and even a gentle hug. I don't know of anywhere else in the world where you go into a room full of strangers and get this kind of support and kindess... it's pretty amazing how healing the rooms really are. Come to think of it, what the heck am i doing here in front of the computer when i know what's out there waiting for me?? On second hand, i've come across some awesome people here on d.s as well. Could be that i'm just more aware now, but you know what?? The world is a pretty friendly place and i love it!

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips.
