I was at a B.B.Q. this past weekend with a large group of people. I knew only a few people at this event. In a conversation with a couple the dreaded question came up "Are you Married" How do you answer that question, especially to someone that you hardly know? I am sure that I had the deer in the headlights look on my face. Do you simply say no, so that you don't have explain or make people feel uncomfortable or tell them the truth but spare the details. If I were to say no then I'm sure they would automatically think that I am divorced. Has anyone else had to come up with an appropriate answer? Any input would be appreciated.

When I was awake this morning I was thinking of writing a note to thank the people who has helped me in the grief journey. I think this message provided me with the motivation (ie. I don't need this s$%^!).This question is one of the most hurtful question you can ask to a fellow griever. But I can imagine why you are questioning my validity. I'm sorry I don't feel the need to show the death...
So it seems my grief is taking me to some dark places. What if the end of life in this world actually is the end of our consciousness and all aspects of our existence are no more. Our soul does not move on as it too is non-existent. Am I alone in thinking these grim thoughts? Is this part of the grief and mourn continuum.
