I am sorry it happened to you too Promise but just goes to prove, people who didn't suffer a loss are clueless. My widow friend said when her first husband died, the wives of other couple friends acted like she was a threat and was going to go after their husbands. Sad when the best company I have most days is a 6 mth old puppy! love, Josie

They say your address book changes when you are widowed, and its true! People just don't get it! :-( Its very lonely navigating this journey and then loosing some people you thought were friends too! Hugs Josie!

Hey Josie,

maybe they do see us as a threat, like we might steal their husbands away or something.

That was the worst part after the death, loosing my friends. Sad reality we all faced.

I'm doing ok.. getting sleep where I can. He sleeps about 2-3 hours at a time, nurses great, and is growing like crazy! He's in 3-6 month sleepers and onesies now! He's got some funny faces too. Cracks me up! Last night he scooted 90 degrees while on the floor! He hates shoes too! LOL Otherwise I'm trying to eat/drink properly but blah! LOL Food just doesn't sound good but I do eat since I have to keep my supply up! Already back in pre-preggo fat jeans too! ;-) So thats how we are! Hope you are good!

I fired trainer after 4 times, so lost money on the last 3 sessions but she gave me such wrong adivice that better off without her. I use to leave there with NO self esteem and about in tears as she criticized me and telling me walks are of NO benefit for dogs, she believes in letting them run lose in acres of land with other dogs, well, come to reality lady! Had me order the worst harness. Wanted me to bribe her with hot dogs vs. giving her nutritious puppy food in a bowl. I could go on and on, supposedly she had 22 years of experience. thanks for asking, love, Mary

I guess the loss of friends is just another closing chapter in our bereavement book.
