I Miss My Parent(s)

I created this group for people who may be grieving one or both parents. I lost my Mom and Dad within one year of each other. Dad passed away from Lung Cancer and Mom passed less than one year later from Pick's Disease.

Really Struggling

I'm really missing both of my parents right now. I'm single. No kids. I have no one left to care for nor do I have anyone to care for me. Feeling lost and alone. Every day is a struggle. :(

Really struggling right now. Both my parents are gone. I'm single with no kids. I no longer have anyone to care for nor do I have anyone to care for me. Work is my escape and I'm grateful for that but when I come home the world just seems to come crashing down around me. Feeling lost and alone. :(

Hello! Picks disease is really horrible. One of my friends has it too... They say, there is a stem cells treatment method like the one uctclinic offers. It has to be really effective and working. I hope, it will help people to get over the illness.

Traci: Since you asked for advice as well postpone any major plans for now.  Encouragement I will keep giving you and i need some of the same though.  This is a great forum to be on.  For me its been a huge pillar.

Comment by Melissa T on January 8, 2015 at 2:34am

Traci- my father died 2/12/2005, my only child, my 15 year old daughter Kaitlin 5/20/2008, and than my mom 10/6/2009, the three most important people in my life all gone in 4 and a half years, I was devastated, I still am, but it's no longer all encompassing as it once was. My dad was my rock also, and my mom was probably my best friend in the world, and my daughter was my gravity, kept me focused and moving forward, she was my world. I know talking about what's happened to you with others that have similar situations does wonders for most, so I'd say you're in the right place, there are support groups in most communities that help with all types of grieving, you can find out where they are on line, and all the on line ones such as this. It may not feel like it will ever be any better, but it does with support and time, that's not to say you won't have bad days, I still do, there our parents and we loved them. Good luck to you.

Comment by Traci Ann Benson on January 7, 2015 at 9:53pm

I lost both of my parents. I lost my Dad on Feb. 19, 2012 from a heart attack very sudden death that hit very hard. Then I just lost my mom on Oct. 14, 2014. I knew that my mom was sickly and since July of 2014 I kept asking God to take her home so she wouldn't suffer anymore.. Well when he did finally take her it has been really hard on me. Within 2.5 years I lost them plus other family members and I just can't understand how I am to make plans on getting engaged, married or even have kids with them not being here. To help me get through all this. I realized how much my mom was my supporter and how much my dad was my rock. I feel like I can't do this. That I am not strong enough. There are days I just want to stay in bed and not come out from under the covers. I am so lost. SO PLEASE IF ANYONE CAN GIVE ME WORDS OF ENCOURGMENT OR SOMETHING THAT MIGHT HELP. I WILL TAKE ANY ADVICE I CAN GET. THANK YOU

Lost Love

I am not looking for judgement here. Please do not hurt me any further by judging what we did is right or wrong. I have already gotten my karma when he make the decision to give us up but it's the reason that I am not able to accept and move on..J and I met and fall in love at our previous workplace. J is married for 7 years with 2 kids when we know each other. Like any other affair, J told me he's not happy with his marriage. He had no more feelings for his wife and that things at home are…See More

You're too young to be a widow

I never thought that I would be a widow in my forties.  My friends can't relate and feel the need to comment on everything, even if they have no experience with grief.  I know they mean well but only we know what we are going though.See More

Lost my 33 year old son to alcoholism

I don't know if anyone reads this anymore but I lost my 33 year old beloved son just about 2 months ago. The first time I knew he was an alcoholic was on a Monday and he passed away the following Sunday. I saw a few tell tale signs now that I know but had no idea he drank everyday and I didn't know he even liked hard liquor. We had a great relationship even though we didn't see each other all the time we talked or texted at least a few times a week. He had definitely separated himself from the…See More

The Hardest Days

There are nights that I dream about the funeral, about how bitter cold and wet it was, from the rain. I replay it all over again, about how unwilling I was to leave. About how unable I was to accept that he was already gone, and just his body remained. But I refused, absolutely refused, to think of him in the ground. As cold as it was, I just couldn't imagine him there. There are days that I wake up from those dreams, and I just cry. I never knew I was capable of so many tears! And I will do my…See More
