Ron B., It sounds like you're in a pretty tough time in your life.  I can relate, not exactly, because everyone's grief is different, but I sympathize.  

It can feel like you're totally alone in the world.  I too have no other family than my father who has had mental disabilities all of his life and therefore hasn't been a "support" for me in the way that most people think of. It can be so tough with out a solid support structure.  Thankfully, I have a couple of friends that are like family and I'm grateful for them everyday.

For me, what has worked is simply never giving up. Every day I wake up and tell myself that life is worth living for. Period. I want that for you too and for Everyone on this forum and everyone out in the world who go through tremendous, traumatic grief. We Must soldier on because, well, life Is worth living for :)

I second Charity and John's suggestion that you seek out a support group, pastor or therapist. I hope you do because you seem like a very nice person and wish for you to get well soon! Sending strength and positive thoughts.

My heart hurts for you Ron B. I agree that a support group would be good. Can you go talk with a therapist, pastor or? You are not alone even though it seems that way. Can you pray for guidance? When I feel hopeless, I pray. Please try to be gentle with yourself cause your heart is mending. I am sending a are not alone...

Ron B, there is a group called Grief Share. They have them in almost every city and town. This is a group that meets for 12 weeks at a time. You need to be with people who have also lost a loved one.

It's been awhile since I posted in here..If anything, I am at the worst point in my life..This past July 22 was the 1 year anniversary of losing my mom. Its been a rough year even more so for me because I dont have any friends to support me, or do things with, and i'm pretty much alone as the only relative I have is my brother and him and his family dont want anything to do with me over something thats happened over 20 years ago and they wont forgive me...

     I had my job at first to keep me busy but as of January 12th, after 30 years with my company, I couldnt do the work anymore because of disability, so now i'm on social security disability, and my only outlets were to go visit my former co workers at 3am(I used to be overnights), and now people are making it an issue that i'm keeping them from getting their work done, so technically i'm not allowed to go there and just sit out of the way..i'm only allowed 15 minutes to come in to shop and then leave, so now I go there to pick up odds and ends, and then end up buying a coffee and sitting in a parking lot right next to the railroad tracks..My other source of comfort which is my dog is about to come to an end because she is 10 years old, going blind, has tumors all over her back and cant stand up straight to walk without falling over, so tomorrow I have to go to the veteranarian to end the life of the only friend, only being that still loves me unconditionally as the only other person was my mom who passed last year and my wife who passed in 2008.  This may not be the forum for all this, but not a day or minute passes by that I dont think about suicide..The one thing that kept me from acting on it is my religious beliefs that its a sin and i'll go to hell, but in some ways, I feel i'm already there. I long to hear the advice and conversations with my mother, or to eat my wifes hot home cooked meals which now all I eat is microwaveable crap that is cooked in 2 minutes. Now after tomorrow when I come home from the vet alone, it will be a stone silent house...No dog barking at every little noise, no furry head to pat, noone to talk with, or do anything with.

    sorry to be so depressing, but i'm hurting more than I ever have and at my breaking point...Just wanted to vent out a little in a grief chatroom.

Tanya I  am  so  sorry  for  your  loss, and  I  look to find  a grief group  as my health  has been  affected  with the deep  shock and stress of losing  mom. Its been almost  2 months and we continue  to  try and pick up  the  shattered  pieces  left without  our  beautiful  mom.

Comment by Kate on September 24, 2015 at 2:27am

Tanya, I'm so sorry for the loss of your mother. Grief is the biggest challenge of my life. I can say though, that it has gotten better over time for me and I do so truly hope it does for you too. Sending support your way.

Comment by John Barry on September 24, 2015 at 1:10am

Hi Tonya, I lost my mother 2 years ago. I also went to Grief Share. They helped me a lot, would not have made it without them. I've now gone through the course 2 and 1/2 times. I do recommend taking the course at least twice.

Grief Is Never Easy

I just wanted to share that I did lose a very close aunt Tuesday Morning.Aunt Rita, she was a very sweet woman, loved everyone, and never judged others.I was having a mega hard time with her death, but I talked to a priest from a localCatholic Church. I can't even begin to tell you how much better I felt. I am feeling sadness because she's gone, but the priest I talked to was comforting and supportive.I know that lots of people in here are grieving, coming here is very good, but if you are not…See More

Life without Erik

so as of last may, it's been three years since my fiancée died. We.....weren't anything special I suppose. We met through mutual friends on facebook, moved to skype and acted like fools once we realized the other was cuter than either of us had ever thought. WE had an on and off again relationship that lasted for about a year, not even a year if you count all the time we spent broken up, but despite that, neither of us really ever stopped loving the other, but we were hormonal teenagers, and…See More
