Yes, I have friends but waking up to no one in the house sometimes seems unbearable. There I have actually said how I feel, and not what is expected of me.
I felt alone with my first husband. He was an alcoholic, and didn’t touch me until the day he put a knife to my throat, and said that he would kill me, if I took our daughter away from him.
Thankfully I met Len, and took care of his health for 40+ years. These past 2 months have been the loneliest, that I could never have imagined.
