On June 7th my world changed forever. I hate being a "Widow"
In the past I have posted on Off Topic days about my husband and his struggles with addiction. Living with an addict is never easy. But having the addict not living is even harder.
This time a month ago, I was packing to go to the beach, while my husband watched our 18 month old daughter, and 10 year old son. He couldn't miss work, so he stayed home, while I went with my parents. We had a nice evening together, and before he left (he was spending the nights at his parents until he got more sobriety under his belt) he held me, and kissed me.
That was the last time I saw him.
On Thursday, June 7th, my Dad walked in the beach house to tell me that the Sheriff had called to let us know that my In-Laws had found my husband in our house, dead.
Before I lost Adam, I thought I knew how precious life was.
Now I know that until you go through a life changing event, you have no idea.
Every goodbye you say, every hug you receive, every harsh word that leaves your lips could be your last. Your friends and family truly are precious treasures. Make sure they know that.

A very dear friend was waiting last week for her husband to meet her to celebrate 22 years of marriage.
They were high school sweethearts, married right off school and have a daughter.
The husband is a biker and was being driven to the meeting place by a biker friend from work, when a parked suburban took off in an U turn and they ran into it.
Her husband was killed instantly, the bike driver was injured, but not seriously.
He was 42 and will be buried tomorrow.
All here are still in shock.
I can't imagine how terrible such is for the family left behind.
I am so sorry that you also have to go thru this. HUGS.
