I'm so sorry for your loss, Alice. But, I'm happy to hear your healing has reached the point that you've decided it was time to come back and try again. One of the hardest things for any of us to do is share our darkest moments and seek support. I don't know why that is, since that's when we need each other the most. I appreciate that this site makes it easier to do so, not only because of the life-shifting challenge, but because of the wealth of wonderful people here - all kindred spirits.
Sharing your story isn't a burden in the least - we wouldn't be here "talking" if Cami hadn't shared her's, and look where that led! I trust over the next 29 days other members will find your journey a huge support to them.
To address your request for a push in the right direction, may I suggest that you look close to home and listen to your heart. Is there something you haven't done for someone else in a long time because of your sadness? A cup of tea, a favorite meal, a phone call, a thank you card. Take the first step and the next 28 will fall into place. If not, you've got 13,500 friends here to cheer you on.
You are a gift, Alice. Thank you for sharing your story.

Gosh, I just read your most recent post and was surprised to see that I had responded to you back in January of 2011-yes, absolutely, welcome back! My experience has been to find out that most all of us are dealing with our own personal issues, but yes you will find that we are a most caring and forgiving community.
Write what you feel that you can, don't put undo pressure on yourself if you're not ready, if you feel up to giving, pare it down to the most basic and simplest of human kindness that presents itself in your world, and see where this journey takes you.
With love and great respect for the courage it takes to begin again......
How are you Dear Alice? Hope things are better for you.. xoxo
