Mrcelloboy Posted December 2, 2010 Report Share Posted December 2, 2010 I lost my fiancee and partner of 10 years, Kathy, on 11/10/2006. I married again on 12/7/2009. Melanie is a wonderful gift in my life. I still feel my loss. I still feel like I'm less present that I used to be before losing Kathy. I find it difficult to feel inspired. I'm not as physically active as I used to be. I remind myself that I'm lucky to have a job that I enjoy, a wife, children, pets, yet I still feel like; "So what?" Though I love to nap I don't think I'm really depressed. I don't shy away from social events, I'll take part in physical activity that others instigate, I continue to play my cello. I just don't have much enthusiasm for any of it. I worry a bit about what Mel and I will face in "retirement" (whenever that is). We're both 55 and neither of us has saved much. We envision working at least to 65 if not beyond, but there's only so much we'll be able to accomplish financially these next ten years. Was it Bill Murray that said; "Call a Waaaahmbulance!"
