"Barzan you are so right pets are a blessing. I rescued a dog a few months after Jim passed and as the saying goes "I didn't rescue her she rescued me" and it is so true. She is such a great companion. Always there…"
"Don you are right you can't beat it. Someone told me awhile ago that it doesn't get better it just gets more tolerable. Some days I find that to be true and others it is like yesterday. Most of the time when my life is…"
"I love that I can come to this site whenever I need to be with people who connect with me in the one area of my life not everyone (thank goodness) does and that is in my grief. Grief doesn't discriminate on age, race, religion or gender.…"
"Frank you are so right. Grief is just that grief. Grief has no age or no time frame. I do hope Beloved Peach you continue to come to whichever site you feel most comfortable sharing with. Just like Frank I was born in NY in…"
"Hi BelovedPeach, I know how you feel with the age of the groups. I think it is probably because sometimes people in a certain generation can relate to different things like songs, travels, kids, grandkids, movies, etc etc etc. But since…"
"Hi Frank, yes it is the never-ending saga of my roof but hopefully by tomorrow it will be done except for the inside repairs. I can't take anymore disruption so I will ask that they come back another time to start fixing what was damaged…"
"Hi Everyone, I see the last comment on here was a while ago which may be good. It was also made on my Jim's birthdate by timetofly. How ironic. I have this fear that I will check in here and it will be gone. I don't…"
"It has been a while since I have been on here but always feeling a sense of comfort to know this site exists. When they changed the name I panicked thinking where do I go now when I need to know there are people who understand how I am…"
Ceilya, thank you for the friend request. Yes, sometimes I feel it's difficult to care about anything.....So many things just seem so trivial to me now. I'm back to full throttle at the office again....but I will never again bring work home with me, EVER. Too precious little time with my son as it is. I guess that's been the biggest lesson for me, how incredibly short life really is and what's REALLY important. Also, I don't know about you, but I've lost interest in all my old hobbies. I'm hoping someday I'll get that back. Anyway, sorry for rambling, I really just wanted to say hello, and thank you, and wish you a peaceful evening.
I am overwhelmed by all of your comments. I only wished I had found this site sooner. But I know it is the right timing for me. I finally feel connected. A safe place to cry, vent or just read and feel a little peace for just a few minutes. Thank you all for taking the time to comment. I just want to care again about anything but I can't. I can pretend to care and it is very believable but I feel like it is a trait I don't possess. Do any of you feel like I do??? Thanks you all again for just being here.
Ceilya, I'm so sorry for your loss but glad you found us. It is hard to find the balance between dealing with your own grief and helping your children with theirs. Here you can vent, rant, cry, scream....whatever it is you need, and we will listen and understand. Wishing you peace.
