"Lirvie, I totally get what you are saying. No, there is no excuse for what your drunk friend said. One of the greatest (as in large and awful) is that I have to let stupid comments roll off my back. It is good that you are at WV. We all totally get…"
"Early on my experience of grief was described this way: I would be on the surface of the ocean peacefully floating. Then, without warning, I'd be at the bottom of the ocean floor being dragged across jagged rocks. Moments (or hours) later…"

"Hello Siouxieg - my condolences. You are in the right spot here and I'm glad you reached out to us. You say you feel numb and that your advocacy for your young kids is making your grief get lost. These are normal feelings. The numbness I…"

"Tracy isn't it odd what people say. Interestingly my son took it as his responsibility to change our outgoing greeting on the home phone the day his mom, my wife passed. It seemed like the right thing to do. Shortly thereafter, we recorded her…"
"Janina, hang in there. You are not alone here. Tell us about what is going on if you wish because we get it and have lived thru experiences that are unique but similar. I hope you come back to this list and read about our experiences and share as…"
"Tracy what you are feeling is normal. All of us here have experienced what you are going thru. You are very early in the process so it is still very raw. In my experience, the rawness diminishes with time. That is not to say that I have stopped…"
"Hello Tracy. Each of us grieves differently but we are all on a very similar journey. Feel free to tell your story here. It's been almost exactly 2 years since the loss of my beloved wife. This site has helped me because I know I'm not…"
"Hi b2, Thank you for your words. Here is a collection that I believe can be attributed to the Buddha. I remind myself each day of what I have and what I have had. My wife was part of me then and she is a part of me now. Of course, I miss her…"
