"Tekwriter, 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."

"Lisa, that is probably a good way to look at it, but still so difficult.  I just can't seem to get things sorted out in my mind about all of this.  Some days it still doesn't even seem real."

"Lisa, 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."

"Judyrose, 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,…"

"Diva, 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…"

Mary,

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. 

DIVA70 Right about so many things it was nice to read her comments. I just hate that we have to be on here but this isWhere our lives lives took us. 

Hugs Judyrose
