I have been away way too long....I had some things going on in my life that had knocked me for a loop.  I lost my dear godfather and Uncle the same week we lost my husband's brother.  My husband's brother was only 56 and had always been healthy....had a massive heart attack and died in 10 mins. This was one of the hardest weeks I have ever had.   I am only now getting back to life....I have missed you all and hope to catch up with everyone.

Welcome back sos007! It sure sounds like you have had a rough time with all that going on! I am sorry for your losses. I hope you have given yourself enough time, even when you do not lose a direct family member it can be difficult and there is  still a " hole" left in your life and it takes time to adjust. So be gentle with yourself! I am glad that you are back though!
I wish you well

You already know how I feel - I hope - but I'm so sorry you and your family had to go through all of this. We had one year, about 10 years ago, that was like that - several losses of close family members right in a row. It did my sanity in (literally)... so take time to heal and take care of yourself.. and your hubby.

Hugs, my friend. --Tina

Amy. so sorry to hear of what you and your family have been going through. It is always so difficult when we lose loved ones, so just give yourself plenty of time to go through the grieving process. Just take things a day at a time and you will get through it.

Take care...Susie

Glad you decided to post again.  And very sorry indeed, for your multiple family losses.  You have been through a lot, poor dear. 
I know I had gone through a lot in my life with my battling cancer last year.  I was away from Healing Well for a year. 
But we do come back, don't we.?  And that is a good thing, because the people, our friends, really care about us and miss us when we are not here.
I'm glad you are back.  Welcome home.
God bless you.
