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

Hi Brett

Thanks a lot. Not sure of others, but yes I can say that I am better than before as I need to be involved in lot of activities. India is a country where hundreds of festivals are celebrated and these festival allow you to get involved in religious and family oriented events. In past 15 days there were more than 5 festivals and each of them has its own significance. One of them was a festival where parents fast for whole day without water to pray for better life of their kids. Also on 07 Nov we have Diwali festival which is like Christmas in India and to add to it Christmas is also celebrated with equal zeal in our country. So this diverts the mind a bit but on the other hand I do not enjoy life as I used to do earlier, rarely laugh and have a kind of numbness always. As you know this is more because of the guilt than grief and I guess it will be same through out. 

I am fine to talk to anybody on skype at Please add.

I wanted to post something because I feel like this discussion is slipping away. And I think I know why. We all came here looking for support, understanding, and hope. If ever there was a group of people who understands how much it hurts to lose your mom it's this one. The problem is, none of us feel any better, We are just as broken as we ever were. And I don't know what to do about that. Not for myself or for any of you. I keep hoping though, for all of us. As long as we have hope we have something. 

I just want each of you to know that I like you all so very much. I've never met any of you but I think of you all as great friends. I hope we all get better. I have the highest hopes for Avi because he has a child to give his heart to. But, maybe, hopefully, there is hope for all of us.

Good morning all. 

Wishing you all a peaceful day. I hope I am able to live one day without guilt.

Completely agree Crystal that whenever something good happens, we think that if she would have been here it would have been great. 

Comment by Crystal K on October 22, 2018 at 6:20am

Hi guys, its been awhile since I posted. Been really busy with work- guess thats a good thing because it means less time for me to dwell on things. My sister just found out she’s pregnant with her fourth kid. Really happy and excited for her, but also very sad that my mom will never meet her grandchild. Tears were shed. I guess this is the reality for us now... happy moments will always have a little bit of sadness. Thats one of the things Im struggling with- everytime something great happens in our family or I achieve one of my personal goals I think “Mom should be here to enjoy this” 

Comment by Avi on October 22, 2018 at 6:18am

I also did not tell my mother that how much I love her. I always took her for granted. 

I can only hope to say sorry now once after I leave the world. Sorry for not taking care of her.

What’s the point

Whats the point of living if there’s no happiness?  If you don’t care about anything except being with the person you lost...if everything is meaningless...if you can’t stand the pain or the numbness...if you don’t belong anywhere..if everything feels wrong...if you have no idea what to do about it...if you can’t get through the daySee More
