Thanks for asking how I am.
I am okay, still working full time. I have good friends and family and have started to socialise more. I still have good days and bad days.
Its over 3 years since I lost my lovely Steve but I am learning to live life without him, I think my grief...
Sorry to hear of Dhirens deteroration - inevitable with this awful disease.
At least you dont have the added worry of the care Dhiren receives in the home, it sounds like they do a wonderful job of looking after him.
I hope you are well and continue to enjoy your breaks away...
So sorry to hear of your loss.
Jan is at peace after such a long journey with her illness.
Like Hazel said before me, the loss of Jan will leave a massive hole.
Your love of Jan was evident in every post.
My sincere condolances.
Thanks for asking about me.
I will be 3 years in October since I lost my lovely Steve, there is not one day when I dont miss him.
I am still working full time - another 6 years.
I having been getting on with my life and go out with friends and family. I have also been on...
Your stepsons are being unreasonable expecially when you have been such a devoted wife for so long.
I hope that they see sense and let you arrange things the way that you and John would want.
What an awful time to start shouting at you when you are still in shock over losing...
I was so saddened to read your post.
I am glad his suffering from this terrible disease is over and he is at peace.
You are in my thoughts as you grieve for your husband, you did everything you could for him and your love showed in everything you wrote.
I am so sorry to hear this bad news.
My thoughts are with you & John as I understand how devastated you will be.
I hope John is as comfortable as possible and that you are managing to cope.
I hope someone is with you to give you comfort and support.
I cant see the first 2 paintings via the links but the painting of Venice and the one of the boats are really good.
John was a wonderful artist, you must be so proud.
Hope everything is okay with you both.
You have been so strong for Alan and also these last weeks making sure everything was perfect for the funeral.
Now is the time for you - the days are so hard to get through your emotions will change all the time.
I tried to do a day at a time - didnt work so had to try to get...
The photo made me cry Helen- but at the same time happy that Alan had all his dogs with him on his final journey.
Something about those photos of Alan with his animals and the love he showed them realy got to me.
I have been thinking about you and hope that you still feel his love around...
I am so sad that the time has come for you to move Dhiren to a care home.
I hope he settles as well as he did when in respite.
It must be so hard for you but you have tried your best for a long time and without sleep it is even harder.
You must have been relieved when Paul...
I had tears in my eyes when I heard Alan was holding his little dog all day yesterday - it also made me smile because his animals brought him so much happiness.
I hope you manage to get some rest tonight so that you can cope with all that tomorrow will bring.
Alan is free and in...
Please accept my sincere condolences.
I am so sorry that Alan did not have the peaceful and painless end that you worked so hard for - it was out of your hands Helen - you could not have done any more.
I am pleased that you found my post helpful and if you want to talk or ask any questions I am here when you need.
( I feel like there is a vast, empty cavernous space in front of me and that it could swallow me up and so it is so good to know that it doesn't happen.)
