I just wanted you all to know that I am thinking about you all and hope that you get through today without too much pain. Remember even if you think you are alone, you are not because we are all doing this togethe r. We may be physically separated but we are united by bereavement and will help each other through .

Hi Promise. I thought this morning when I got up, I survived yesterday my first Christmas Eve without my husband, and tomorrow I will think, OK I got through my first Christmas without hubby. I am glad I made plans to go to a movie later today and also glad I will be eating alone as not up to festive families right now. take care friends, Josie

OK? Well, I am alive so I guess that is the first hurdle. Going to a movie was a good choice, and eating alone was the right choice also. I did go out to a church friend's house for dinner with her husband and daughter yesterday and to see how beautiful her house was decorated. Have lunch or dinner plans the next 4 days. My heart is broken and the other lady in the accident, her auto insurance is still hounding me when they should be going through my insurance, people are warning me to watch my assets, so not sure what is up with that one. OH well, life will never be the same, my heart will always miss him, but I have to find some way to go on or this will kill me too. And I have the opposite issueof you Promise, I eat nonstop to feel better. I wish we could change spots for a bit, and I don't mean to be flip about it as both of our tendencies isn't healthy. love, Josie

Hi Josie,

you do need to make sure you look after your own interests and try not to let others rush you into doing things before you have been able to think through them. Once stuff is done, it's done so please make sure you are getting the best you can for you.

I am glad your choices were right for you, I thought they would be. Yes, being able to swap eating patterns would benefit us both. Let's do it:smileyhappy:

You look after yourself, OK.

Promise

Hi Josie,

when you have found your soulmate even 100 years would not be long enough.
