In October of 2002 I lost my husband of 33 years, we were High School Sweethearts, actually we were Sweethearts since Grammar School. It has been extremely difficult for me to adjust to a life without a soulmate, for two years I did not leave the house except to shop, and rarely visit relatives. After almost three year of being alone I had a date with a man that met at the grocery store, we had actually run into each other on many occasions there. After about six months we dated, it was a total disaster, partly my fault, I was not up front about my heritage ( African American ) and he turned out to be very racist ( that is a term that I do not use very frequently ). That night I cried myself to sleep, partly due to my denial of my own heritage, and the thought of me being alone for the rest of my life. I was being very selfish, I do have two children and four grandbabies. I have acted in many foolish ways and I have done some very foolish things since my spouse died. I hope that I am on the road to recovery.
