About my Loss:
My loving hardworking husband of only 8 years died suddenly of the vicious disease, liver cancer. He worked very hard for us to have a good retirement and now our dream is gone; he'll never got to experience all the things he worked so hard to enjoy. There were no symptoms until it was too late and I hospiced him at home. The shock, the stress and the speed it took was unbelievable.

6/12/2012. Now my father passed away, the guy that told me to drive 900 miles to see him so he could give me a hug when my husband passed. I just have my dog now, its weird, but a loving warm breathing creature can bring alot of comfort.

"So sorry to hear of your experience with aphasia...how scary and awful! Don’t know if this is what you meant by almost comedic but there is definitely a nasty black humour vibe to inflicting that problem on a radio broadcaster of all people,…"

"Thanks for checking in Mel.  I had to look up aphasia.  I would hazard a guess that your neural system has taken a beating from your grief and your brain just wants to shut down.  I know I have times where I stutter during a breakdown…"

"Susan B,  I am so sorry.  To try and live without that person who was by your side for 52 years is a living nightmare.  I had 35 married years but 55 of knowing him (since second grade).  That much history buries the person left…"

Dark Night and Day of the Soul

Hello Morgan, Bluebird, Linda at al. I'm sorry it has been so awfully long since my last contact.  A Year?

I have had a couple of tia's including a lengthy bout of "aphasia". It was almost comedic as I couldn't talk but kept trying to tell the emt's which hospital to drop me at. This year, I have come to the concludion will be my year, 2020 will be the year I…See More
