Well, I'm back, after a long absence. Formally known here as SassySandeeGladBag.

A family member encouraged me to re-join this group, so I am.
I may not have all the answers but I'm a good listener.

So what's been going on in my life and why did I leave?
Well, to shorten a long story, I had posted some pics of my son (well a condition he had) in search of some answers. My daughter (A troubled hard hearted person) evidently "stalked" me, screen shot the pics and immediately texted them to my son and of course I had some "Splaining" to do.

To jump to the present, well 76 days ago, I lost my precious son. Christmas day 2017, while on a Holiday trip to Rome my son took his life.
A nightmare I wish I could wake up from!!

I'm STILL a Gladbagger (Illeostomy) and NEED to stay busy, sooooo>>>Here I am.

I thought I had found "Mr Right"--but recently discovered is a liar an a cheat!! Go figure, I have my heart RIPPED out of me twice in a year.

So, I'm trying to heal..I don't like the "new normal" (what my suicide grief group calls life after you lose someone to suicide
