I feel bad - can't put my finger on it. On the ''regular'' board, they are trying to start a young widow/widowers group to deal with their issues. I never really though about it - but I guess people needed something different, and we weren't meeting their needs. I always look at my grief through the eyes of an older person, who has been married for many years, but I thought that I could relate to the ''newbees'' and young people as well. I feel hesitant to offer opinions now - not that it was ever asked for. Maybe they think I am foolish, or coming from another perspective - all of a sudden I feel like my MOTHER - shoot me please!!!! ha ha ha. I usually feel that I can relate to almost anyone, young or old, but now I'm thinking that maybe I should shut up and just listen. Maybe it's because I am over two years out in this journey? Some of my ''problems'' now, are new ones, in relation to my loss, and I still want to share them, and get help from my friends, but I am starting to think that I should move on. Journaling is the best thing for me to do - really helps, so maybe I will just do that. Don't think everyone can relate to my ''old'' problems - my arm fell off - my gums are bad....I've fallen and I can't get up. Oy vey - I better run away!!!!! Don't know why this all makes me feel bad - just sharing the feelings.
