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.

I can totally understand Jill's loneliness. I lost both my parents 15 years back and i have noone close in my life. Even though number of years have passed, I have never been able to go back to the carefree person I had been before. It's like I'm broken inside and noone can see it and it can't be joined back anymore. Life goes on but I still can't view things the way others do..I find it difficult to connect with anyone who hasn't been through some sort of pain in life. Not sure why God puts some people through a lot..

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.

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.

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

The End of Times is Near

When I was driving home from a doctors appointment this morning around 11 a.m. I saw something I have never seen in my life.  I was on a major highway a few miles from the airport, and saw a large pickup pulled off on the side of the road ahead.  The pickup truck was a large double cab, the type a lot of contractors like to drive.  The doors were open on the side opposite the road, and as got closer I saw man moving rapidly back and forth by the door.  A little closer and it was clear as day,…See More
