Polly my heart hurts for you. I to am 50 and my sweet husband woulh have turned 52 on June 13. He past away March 7 just 8 days before my birthday. I stilll find myself in a fog and find I'm just going through the motions of the day. This site has at least helped me realize there are others going through the same thing. Which is bittersweet. I wish we could be in here for a sweet reason. Hugs to you
