About my Loss:
I lost mom on 11/30/2006 & dad on 02/03/2010, both had Alzheimers. I have fibromyalgia and struggle with poor health. We moved from our home in Arkansas to Mississippi, leaving our pastor of 21 years, many of our friends & part of our family. The house in MS was misrepresented and major work has had to be done. I live in a state of disarray. I feel like I'm going crazy at times. Recently I had a blow-up with my daughter and her husband. It's been 8 months since we've communicated. I've lost many, many friends over this. It's as if they can't be friends to both of us at the same time. Then I lost my dog. I'm going nuts.
