2 years March 9th

Cannot believe that next Monday will be two years since Doug passed away.

I have travelled a long, hard road over the past years but feel that I am finally coming to terms with his death and the realisation that my life goes on.

I have certainly fould out who my friends are and now I treat them like gold dust, those that have not bothered with me have lond since fallen along the wayside.

I have lots of things lined up for the year ahead and my future looks good again.  I never thought I had a future but I realise I do and its going to be as good as I can make it as I dont know how long I am here for.

I have learned so much in the last two years and in particular,  after an awful Christmas, I shall be looking out for myself a bit more.

So next Monday, I plan to spend the day alone, as I did last year, but not in the same way.  This year I plan to remember my man for the many good times we shared and reflect on the life we had to my life now.

Finally there is a not only a light at the end of the tunnel but its been switched on!

Sending thoughts and hugs to those that need them at this time and if anyone out there is suffering in the way I did, all I can say is hang on in there, your life will come back
