Well, I have been on med leave since Oct 08 when the fibro became more than I could bear. It has stalked me all my adult life. Every job I've ever had, I've had to quit at some point and get well (6 month - 2 years) and then go back and try again. I'm 51 years old and I just don't want to repeat the cycle again - I saw a job about 45 miles north of here that would be teaching and would pay $40K. I don't know, of course, if I would get hired, but if I did I'm scared to try. For one thing, there goes my disability policy coverage, but they haven't told me yet if they'll cover me or for how long. And I just opened the frig door and I tell you, that will put the fear in you when there's a couple of yogurts and some milk. I keep trying to talk to my 3 kids and husband about moving to a smaller home and no one wants to hear it -- Of course, I'd rather not move, either. It's a royal pain, but I mean what can we do? My husband is 60 and just got on at Wal-Mart part-time and my ex is taking me to court March 3 to try for visitation with our youngest girl after DHR found that he molested the other 2. We moved to another nearby state and he is saying I should have had his permission! My employer is "sending some papers about my leave" and I imagine that will be the heave-ho. Is this life or some kind of nightmare?

Last night we had NationalNight Out in the neighborhood. Everything was going great, everyone swooned over Tank, but on the walk back (which is about 2 blocks away) I looked down at Danno's hands and they were turning purple, even his...
I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips. Not interested in being with couples and kids,,,I realize a cruise ship will have a portion size of families and couples, but perhaps they also put together a part of the cruise ship for groups of widows/widowers????
