Avi I think you are doing great, better than I was at the point you are at, but you have a new child that helps you put your attention on.  You seem to be very kind, I don't know how to skype if I did I would lol

Brett, yes I am going through the exact same feelings you are at this time my friend, I wish we lived closer we could go to church together, it would be nice to have someone to do that with.

Virginia, we never know what people say behind closed doors, I would not write her off as a friend, just know that she is not who you thought she was.  Avi is right thats funny she lied on top of lies, and you knew the truth, as the Doors said "People are Strange" I don't know if anyone even knows who the Doors are, but Brett and myself, lol.  

Let everyone of us today say a prayer for each other that we may find peace in the rest of our lives without the most important person by our side and know that one day we shall meet again.

Yes Brett rightly said, people around us will not understand the grief or guilt. 

Virginia, this was unfortunate but a bit hilarious as well. I can understand how hard that lady would have tried to convince you but all futile.

Virginia, every one of us is that person. All my life I was the funny kid in school and at work. I've heard it my whole life, "You don't have to entertain me." What a honking load of crap that was. When the jokes dried up, the friends dried up. I don't even like to call people because I know they are tired of hearing about how much I miss my mom, or my troubles since then. They don't want to deal with it. I think they see us an Amway salesmen who found a way into their houses.

But to put on a false face is a lie. You have to be who you are, where you are. And if people don't want to hear it, or they don't like being around you, than just try to be strong for yourself. There is nothing to be ashamed of. I don't care if it's sadness or if it's guilt, It's all a product of loving our moms so much. I'll never be ashamed of that.

I'll just make-do the best I can.

  Today I texted a lady from bereavement group and asked what she was doing.  I was going to ask if she wanted to get something to eat.  She mistakenly sent me a text that was intended for her boyfriend.  She told him that she just got a text from me and was afraid to answer because she thought I might ask to come over and “I can’t do that”.  I told her I got that text and that I wouldn’t bother her anymore.  Of course she sent several texts with excuses and that all of them in the group really care about me.  Yeah, I can tell.  I told her not to feel bad and that even my own friends don’t want me around.  I must be being punished.

  I went to church tonight and it’s all so confusing to me.  All of it.  Is that bad?  Do I have to agree with everything?  Why is it only once a week?     I didn’t know where else to go.

Brett, if you are available on skype please send me request at avitiwari26@gmail.com. 

Lets have a call someday.

Good to hear from you Avi. I think about all of you and hope you are doing well. I worry about my sister Theresa. I have a feeling that I know what you are going through. I think I am going through the same thing.

Bluebell, I hope you are well, physically and emotionally. Stay strong.

Virginia, be good to yourself today.

God Bless you all.

Hi All, 

I hope you are fighting well with your grief. Last week it was Diwali festival in India so was stuck up in family events etc. All were enjoying and I was just doing what was expected from me.

You and I both it’s not bad enough then I’m crying about missing my mother now I’m crying about what am I going to do my dogs not here it’s a recipe for disaster you said it
Comment by Brett Bowman on November 3, 2018 at 1:58pm

I certainly will. Thursday was Krissy's 13 the birthday. I went to my men's group at church that night. During the prayer request I gave praise that I still have my little girl. I just started bawling. She is all that I have left of my mom and I just don't want to lose her. After the meeting, one of the church elders told me that I have to understand that people and pets die, and that we have to be able to move on. 

I just don't know how to do that. A couple of days ago I couldn't get Krissy to eat her breakfast. She has to eat so that she can have insulin. I tried everything. I rubbed some wet food on her mouth. I couldn't get her to eat. I just laid down next to her and cried. I came back later that day and all of her food was gone and she was running around and playing. That was great but my emotional well being is reliant on my dog's health. That's a recipe for disaster.

Brett yes I agree, I always check in, but I feel the same so no use boring everyone

Getting busy at work because in retail it their time of the year, (fine Jewelry)

Also I have some kind of respirator virus throat sore and horse, went to dr thats what he said.  But still have to go to work.

I miss my mom even more because she was always there for me when I was sick, now I just pray it goes away, what else can I do.

Today we have to bring our 11 year old Lab to vet for bloodwork to make sure his new anti-inflammatory is not elevating his kidney levels, please say a prayer

I will check in later
