Re: the shell on the outside

The other morning I woke up to someone snoring - I turned over in bed to wake John up - he wasn't there!
That day after eight months, I found this site. Just to know that there is somewhere I can put my feelings down, without feeling like I am "burdening" someone or repeating myself really has made a difference - I can put down my most intimate feelings and thoughts, without feeling someone younger than me is thinking - what, people their age don't do that, do they? (I am 62) - Yes they do do that - in fact the day before John had his first stroke, that's exactly what we did. And it was good - over the last few years, especially since John was on medication for his heart, we had decided that quality was sometimes better than quantity - and boy did we have quality - that is one of the things I miss most - the intimacy and togetherness.
