I lost my husband in April 2004 in Iraq. My son was only 2 and my daughter was 15 and I only 37. My life has never been the same nor will it ever be again. My husbands death was very public in our City and State. I had over 800 people at his wake and funeral. I was in the public eye for almost two years. My husband was the first postal worker killed in the war in Iraq (he was 34). I traveled alot for the postal service and the military. Now for the past two years I have become very lonely and have no support in my life at all. I started to drink to numb the pain and have secluded myself in my home and all the "people" who said they would continue to call or come to see me or stay in touch, well it never happened. Last June, I went to jail for drinking and driving and now I am unable to drive for 9 months in which I feel more secluded because of my circumstances. I don't drink any more and it has been a huge wake up call for me. I hope that someone out there can relate to my circumstances and give me some hope.
