We are having trouble adjusting to our “new normal”. My husband spent 4 months in the hospital – 3 in ICU. We had some support while at the hospital – but now at home we are feeling isolated and alone. It seems we really don’t have many friends and don’t know where to turn. We need some support that is why I have joined this network.

Hello to both of you! I just joined this network myself; I’m a 20-year survivor this August and am hoping I can help provide some comfort and/or hope, or just be there to listen, whatever is needed. I know you sent these messages a long time ago but if you are still in need, please reach out to me anytime. All the best, Christina
