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,
Everything Heals, Your body heals, your heart heals, The Mind HealsWounds heal, Your soul repairs itself.Your happiness is always going to come back. Bad times don't last.

I'll be home and I'll be free. It don't matter where...
