Don't grieve alone; 13,500 members and growing
I lost someone who is still alive. She was a staff member at a hospital I was at. It is a rule that a patient cannot contact staff for two years after your discharge. It has already been 8 months. Me and this staff were REALLY close and we had a lot in common. I miss her so much. She got me through the roughest of times. I talked to her about everything and anything. She was my person. 2 years is too far from now. I am afraid she will forget about me in 2 years. I am terrified to think what life would be like if she didn't remember who I was. I was in the hospital for over a year. I saw her everyday for almost a year. I talked to her almost everyday for almost a year. I doubt she will forget me but I don't want to take chances. I am so depressed. I don't know what to do.
2 years seems excessive. Did the two of you talk about getting together in 2 years? Life can be so hard. Just take one day at a time. Stay in the moment. I know that is hard too. From experience, I know I have missed opportunities for joy by obsessing about the past and the future. Just my 2 cents. Believe me, I know the waiting is difficult. Wishing you the best of everything.
