Once in awhile, after an influx of a lot of newcomers, it's helpful to do a 'roll call' to help us get to know each other a little better. Don't share any information too personal, but a few facts to help us get acquainted is good. I'll start:
I'm Cliffskat/Martha. I lost Cliff, my husband of 30 years, in November 2007. He died of a heart attack with no warning at 55. I was 50, and in moments my world as I knew it ended. I joined DS because there were no support groups I could get to in my area. Being here helped me, so I stayed on, and in 2011 became a group Community Leader. I met my second husband Acuriousfish/Mark, here in this group (he's a widower and CL, too). I moved to England, so am an ex-pat and dual American-Brit now. Life doesn't look anything like it used to, but it's good. I'm also a Mom to two beautiful adult autistic sons.
That's me - how about you??
Love and Hugs,
