"I’ve been kinda over people lately too, especially those who make comments that it seems like I’m doing well. They have absolutely no idea how little I want to be here, and how incredibly sad and lonely I am every minute of every day.…"
"Yeah, I usually just say “hanging in there” or “taking it one day at a time.” I know people mean well, but I really don’t think I even have the words to explain how awful I really feel. Even if I did, it’s not…"
"Ugh, another day going by...nothing of consequence happened, but maybe that’s good because that way he didn’t miss anything good?? That’s how I’ve been feeling, like as long as I don’t do much, he’s not missing…"

I couldn’t have said it better myself. I am not enjoying walking this world without him either. I also feel so alone, and am not looking forward to the holidays at all. People say that this time of year is just hard, but I really think…"
I think that is a neat idea about a print of a star alignment on a certain day, I’ve never heard of that before. Unfortunately, I haven’t yet figured out either how to deal with remembering him, and the good times, without the…"
"Yeah, I was also thinking I would like to make time to celebrate with his family. It’s nice to be around people (his parents, brothers, etc.) that are constantly talking about him and remembering him and all that. That feels more natural right…"
"My first holiday season also. I went to a “Holiday Planning” workshop last week put on by a local hospice agency. They pretty much encouraged us to be patient with ourselves, and whatever traditions or whatever you want to nix…"
"These comments really resonate with me too. I constantly feel like I’m “in a fog”, and what was said about there not being much room in my brain right now for anything but grief really makes a lot of sense. That’s how it…"
"I just wanted to say that I’ve been reading through this thread too, and can relate to a lot of the comments and feelings. I am now about 6 weeks in. I’m glad to know I’m not the only one who doesn’t understand why he…"
I”m sure it’s ok to cry as you write...I am crying every single time. I also feel like I keep writing the same things- how much I love him, miss him, how unfair it is that he is gone so soon, how lonely I am without him- but I…"
"Just came across this discussion post. Nance, I am about your age and my significant other was quite a bit older, like y’all. He passed away on 9/1 after about a 3 week battle with some medical issues in the ICU, which I consider a sudden…"
"Yeah, me too. I’m still trying to figure out what I believe as far as what happens when we die...whether it’s our spirit going to a heaven type thing, an energy we have that lives on, some type of force, or something. Before all this…"
"I found a GriefShare group too. I started this past Sunday on week 2, because I didn’t find out about it in time for week 1. It’s maybe a little religious for me, but the people were nice so I think I’ll stick with it. I like…"
