Hi guys, here it is: My X husband died, he's been remarried to someone else for a long time, and I've been remarried for 13 years. His wife called me last night and said he died of cancer, he was also an alcoholic and that didn't help. Anyway, we had alot of turmoil in our 4 year marriage. The cops got called once on a family violence charge and we had alot of other incidents between us that led up to our divorce. Do you think I should attend the funeral? Just his presence around me over the years caused me to go into panic attacks and trigger alot of stress and anxiety. I'm a little afraid if I go it could set me off into another episode, even with tranquilizers. What do you think? We wern't close, in fact we both stayed far away from each other after the divorce. We played in a band together years ago, and I did call some of his old band mates and gave them the time and place of the funeral. Opinions and advice appreciated?
