Sometimes talking about it helps. If you want to share, this is a great group of caring, nonjudgmental people who understand the griefing of a loved one and the life transition that follows.

Thanks, Bluebell. I am just really going through a lot right now, and I don't know how to make it better.

The dreams were an unexpected gift.

Hey Brett. It would be great to have you check in. You are missed.

I was blessed with dreams tonight that had both my Mom and Dad in it. In one, I was a little girl and ask Mom to help me because I was sick. The beautiful part was that I knew she would take care of me and make everything better again. In the other dream, Mom told me to go to be with Dad and that he was a man who strong and full of confidence. I saw myself as a little girl walking with him down a path next to a lake. It was Fall and the air was clear and crisp. Dad and I were holding hands and I felt very safe, loved and protected. Someone else was holding my hand on the other side of me, but I could not see who it was.

Your Mom was a very special person to show such empathy and caring for those that took care of her. In all my years of being a nurse, I have never heard of any one doing something so caring.

I have been very focused on work and have not checked in lately. But you all have been in my prayers every day. 

Warm, comforting hugs to all,

Hello everyone. Today was bittersweet. I went to visit a dear friend at the hospital where my mother passed almost five years ago(Feb 8th). My mother wrote a short 2 page note of thanks and love to all of the doctors and nurses and staff at the hospital about 36 hours before she passed away while there. It has taken me 5 short years to share that note and I let them scan it to post for everyone that works there to see. It made me feel great love for them all too. I only showed it to a couple of nurses that looked stressed and sad. It really lifted their spirits and made me and them feel happy even with all of the sadness all around us. I miss my mother everyday. Part of me died with her but I am determined to keep going as best that I can. She would want that. Depression has been following me for so long..

Very Well said Theresa Crystal and Betty its been 11 months for me and I still cry a lot and I have not been able to go into my mom house or even look at pictures with out feeling the overwhelming pain. As Theresa said the pain in everyday life did get softer at times I also found this wonderful group who has helped me and allowed me to open up and understand my pain. I hope everyone is doing okay as I haven't heard much from anyone just know you guys are in my thoughts!

Losing Someone to Cancer

This is for anyone who has lost somone to cancer. I lost my adopted Mom to breast cancer some years ago. She was everything I could have asked for. She loved me because I was just me. She also loved my family and children as if they were her own.See More
