"RebeccaB, Yes, I think this is normal. I think it is a physical reaction to the loss and the "hole" that is left. I think your brain wants to fill it will something that gives you comfort... Sex, food, other vices. I remember feeling that…"

Is it easier to believe that God does not exist?

Is it easier to believe that God does not exist?



You may not believe in God, or you may believe that He is a governing force that started this world into motion but cares very little about any of us individually.  All of the bad and evil in this world may lead you to believe these things... 



"How could God let bad things happen?"  …

Thank you, Veronica! My kids are 12, 10, and 8(twins). They surprise me with how resilient they are.. and they also have their difficult days. The way my husband's life was taken has been really hard to accept, but I also know we are all facing tremendous loss and we all have our stories.

You are so right about reaching out to others. My theory is that the pain is too big and, as a result, it must go somewhere. Helping others is an extension of that pain outwardly expressed as love.

Did your kids have counselling? Most importantly, how are they doing now? They are so lucky to have a mom who shows them how to connect with life again in spite of their loss. That's something I am struggling with and know I've come to learn. Thank you for reaching out with your contact info. Blessings to you!

Thanks for your friend request.  Been trying to do this alone but realize that I need to be the company of people who understand.  Sorry for your loss but happy you reached out for me.

Veronica,

    I found the group and clicked on "Join".  Didn't see any place to add comments.  I guess someone from the group will contact me?

    No, I wasn't aware of that group!  I have a sister living in Springville, UT not far away.  I could make the meeting next March.  How do I get into the group?  Do you have a link for it?
