  • I could not imagine living on my own after forty two years of being married.
    So to find myself in your situation I understand would very difficult Ley.

    It is wonderful that you can express your emotions and describe how you deal with every day hurdles on Cowbird; I hope you can feel us, (well at least me) sending you supportive feelings; so that you do not feel too lonely.

    I do not think it is bad for you to think life is hard at the moment, because other people in third world countries are in a worse situation. You have the right to be angry, sad or euphoric on occasions when you realize that you can manage these things. Give yourself permission to rage.
