    Lost

    Its 9 weeks today that my husband lost his battle with cancer. I was so busy trying to fight his battle with him, that even at the end I wasn't prepared for it. My world has ended and I am searching for people who can understand and not judge me. 
  • My father in law passed away suddenly on April 8th of this year. Then my dad passed away suddenly from a heart attack on September 17. Before this the last time I had faced a major death was 20 years ago when I was 9. Over the last few years I have lost a few dear friends.  It is different trying to deal with the death of a family member. I am having a hard time dealing with this. I had to deal...

    Hi folks,I lost my mother in 1985. She had a aneurysm. This post is about that and what it did to me.Before my mothers death, she was diagnosed with leukemia and was on some sort of a chemo regimen. When this news was first told to me (1981) I was devastated. I cried and and had a hard time dealing with it because I thought it meant certain death. Well, she didn't die from the leukemia and...

    Doing pictures

    OK, mom died 2 years ago, dad 1.  So I am finally scanning pictures.  It is LONG WORK!  I did an ablum from one of their trips.  By time I got to the last 50 pictures (more or less) I checked and it takes me about a minute to scan a picture!  My scanner can scan multiple pictures at once, but it needs to do a prescan to figure out where each picture is.At this rate I should be done by early...

    I am NOT okay...

     I lost my daddy a year ago, and just lost my mom a month ago.  I've been walking around with that fake smile and acting like I am okay, but today it all came to a head.  I got a flat tire, and I had a meltdown.  It was not the flat tire that I was so upset about, I am tired of acting like everything is fine.  I have always been the strong one, and now both of my parents are gone, I have no...

    I'm new to the group. My husband was on his way to work May 23rd when he had an accident in his truck, unfortunately he passed away. I've gone through all the what ifs and nothing makes since. His birthday was 2days before, he turned 45. I'm 41. We have an 19 and 18 yr old daughter and an 11 yr old son. We lost our 19 yr old son in an accident 2 yrs ago. So to say the least, I'm lost! After...
  • Dad's house should close escrow this week.  So far the buyer has been very annoying.  It turns out he took the relestate license exam and passed it.  He felt that entitled him to get into the lock box and get the key and go into dad's house when ever he wanted!  My wife and I found his wife and mother there one sunday, and they indicated they had been there all week. He felt entitled.Imagine...

    Grief

    I'm new.  My husband committed suicide almost a year ago.  At first I was in so much denial I didn't think I needed counseling.  I've been going to grief therapy and tonight I'm going to go to a Grief Share group.  There isn't any rule book for getting through this, but I definitely agree with my therapist about one thing for sure - when you start to cry, don't shut down.  Cry as much as you...
  • I do apologize if I seem to be quiet, I have been wanting to talk, but to be quite honest I am not too sure who I should be talking to. I do go for counseling, and I seek the spiritual counsel of a clergy member from my church-both of whom I will hopefully get to talk to next week. I have shut myself down emotionally. That is how some folks want it, and so that is what I need to do.

He was the only person on this earth that made me feel better just by being near me. I...
