Re: Rarely angry but always sad

jimsmom, When I thought back thru my grief I never thought I was angry but I did realize that in some ways I was... You were very brave in tackling that job of going thru Jim's chest. I still have difficulties myself when going thru some of Rebecca's things. Little bits at a time. One day I took all...

Re: Sept15th

sueredpred, Sending you thoughts of peace & strength during these trying days. Do you have any plans on what you might do? This year for me, I am going to go see my sister-in-law and spend some time with her. She is still struggling pretty hard with several things. So the week I have off before her ...

Re: Lost my Brother,feeling im loosing my mind

Evangelia, I feel your pain in my chest as well. I hope you find peace in your heart and mind soon. The first few days, months, years are difficult but it can get better. Stay close with those you love and help each other together. I can tell you the physical and emotional pain I felt was like nothi...

Re: twinless twin

jen9094, First off it is not your fault. We all make choices, your twin chose this and its difficult to understand the reasons why. I struggled with the fact that the love of my life chose to call her mother instead of me before she made her choice. I felt that had I known I would have been there to...

Re: I miss you dad.

Smitty1131, I know how you feel. My wife had anxiety depression and panic attacks at least daily. The best thing you can do is to avoid them at all costs before they happen. The best way I have found is to be focused. Then if something happens such as someone looking like your dad, refocus and distr...

Re: Hope you are having a good week

Every night I am the last one in the office and it reminds me of that night... Although, I deal with it better now.

Re: Does this pain ever get easier?

Sassysab28, it does not get easier. It just gets different, but that only happens if you face it. My family opens up and talks about it together. Why? Because together we are there for each other, together we do just like your boyfriend and pick each other up, together we struggle along. It is okay ...

Re: Sunday sigh.

sueredpred, I know how you feel... Is there anyone you might feel comfortable having around next race. I have found that part of life is about relationships, with God, with family, with friends, with strangers, with co-workers, with difficult people. =) Would you feel alright if you invited a friend...

Re: Help?

Hawk, cali has good advice here. I did this without really thinking about it. On the one year anniversary, I planted a tree I knew Rebecca would have liked in a huge pot. Its almost strong enough to plant outside in the yard next year. I took my time researching and finding one that I knew she would...

Re: How do people handle the spot where the event occured?

I had never really thought about this before now. We rented an apartment in the city and the place on the floor I found her I naturally walked around as though something was still there. I moved out in less than a month and when ever I go past the busy road our apartment was on I still have to look ...
