I see your blog as an open letter to your husband,
your saying all the things you didn't say, or
should have said. Just know, he hears you.

I'm happy you have your blog to express and authenticate YOU. I'm glad it's your safe place. May it always be. Good job... I lost my husband to cancer two months ago. Loss... grief... is personal and lasting. Life must go on, but finding a way to honor and keep the connection with the one lost is challenging and the process is full of pain... I wish you the best.

My goodness, so much for one young woman to go through! Love the Walt Whitman poem.

My husband was a Disabled Vet, Vietnam. He died suddenly on Christmas 2010. I took care of my husband thru 20+ surgeries, overdoses, psch hospitalizations. I spent many days over our marriage sleeping in a chair next to his hospital bed. It is a huge adjustment for me and our two kids after taking care of him. We had to leave our home and move in with family in another state. Thanks for sharing.

I found your blog quite by accident. I started reading from the begining last week and I must say...you went from a scared young marine wife and blossomed into a strong woman. You have been through so much and even though being a child of a Vietnam vet with PTSD, I must say there were very hard days and I wish there was the help and support for the families that there is now. I commend all that you do and how you share your life and experiences with us (total strangers). I was able to relate to many of your mixed emotions and live through some of that with my own spouse and PTSD issues. It is a long road and reading through your life that you shared, I cried with you, laughed with you and felt grief with you. I don't know where you are with your faith, but, I will always keep you in my prayers because you are such a deserving person, I pray you are blessed with happiness and all the things that you tried to have with Cleve. I wish you luck and now look forward to your blogs, just to see what you are up to next. Thank you for sharing your life, even though I am NOT a wife of a wounded warrior or a widow, I have many of the same issues and mixed thoughts and feelings. It's nice to know it is more normal than not....and that there is a place where things heal and get better.
