I hope you are able to come to peace with all of this thru counseling. I can't even imagine what you're going thru. I know there isn't much we can say to make you feel better, but I do hope you'll keep…"
I feel the same way about everyone here. I think we really share each others grief, even though we are all different. We all, unfortunately, have one thing in common.
You had mentioned before about not being able to listen to…"
I'm so sorry you're having some rough days. I think sometimes that the days we feel we're doing okay are really just days we've pushed things from our mind. But it always seems to come back full force another…"
I'm glad you checked in. Even though most of us here have not suffered the loss of a child, we do care and are here for you when you feel like posting. Praying for strength for you in the difficult days ahead."
I feel the same way also. I used to believe that we will be together with our loved ones again, but now I'm not so sure. I'm just questioning everything. I don't really know how to come to peace with all of it."
"Ultra, sounds like you have a pretty positive attitude. I find those kind of things really hard to do. Just makes everything even more final - like it isn't final enough already. Glad you got thru it okay."
I feel that way, too. Sometimes have trouble with the simplest thing because I feel like I can't think straight. Some of it is exhaustion from not sleeping well and now one of my dogs is having health issues. So,…"
Love the picture! That sounds like a wonderful, fun day with your family. In some ways, probably makes things even harder now. The cruise sounds like a great idea. That's so nice that you will have your daughter…"
Best wishes today. I hope you have a nice lunch and visit with your friend.
So sorry for the loss of your little dog. They are part of our family and the loss can be just as devastating as any other loss - more so than some.
"My good friend, who just lost her husband a year ago, and I have been talking a lot about the holidays. We are both dreading them. So much of what everyone has said here really hits home. It won't be the same. I'd…"
"Sounds like you took wonderful care of them. I know it was probably difficult, with the connection with your wife. I'm sure she would have been proud of you!
I know for me, some days it's hard to take care of everyone here - 4…"
"I hear you with the pets. We had four rescue cats, and I took care of them until each got sick and had to be put down--the last one just a year ago. Each time that happened, I felt I lost another connection with Judith. On the bright side, the…"
You are so right it is like an out of body experience. I just go through the day numb that wayI don’t have to think about him or alives before. Maybe that’s not the right way to go through it but I don’t know how else to handle it right now.
It was so nice to read your comments and your comforting words. It is so nice to be on here and have people tell you their experiences and how they handle it it makes you feel like you’re not alone.
