I'm so sorry for your loss. I hope someday the tears stop for you and you can remember all the good times. I know it doesn't help fill your arms, your heart. But that thought has gotten me through the loss of our daughter. Your grief is so new yet. My prayers and thoughts are with you.

I have lost my husband to a very aggressive lung cancer on July 20, 2009.
I looked all my life for the right man and I found him 11 years ago and now he is gone and I am so very lost.I am so sad and crying all the time and I so want him to be with me again. i know he is happy and I did not want him to suffer but now I dont know how to go on.

Julie & Katie, I think one of the hardest things to get through is the quilt of still being here. When our daughter died I felt if I started feeling better, smiling at something I would somehow leave her behind. I have gotten past that now. Like your Mom I know our daughter would want me to be happy. I'm glad to hear you are on some medication. It has helped me a lot. People say that after awhile we adjust better to it. I'm hanging onto that thought.

Im doing alright, Ive been somewhat stressed with other things in my life and feeling a little down. Today Im feeling a little better though. Thankfully I have an amazing support system so that really helps and I know that I will get through it. Im glad medication is helping you feel more stable and that you are feeling good today. I know what you mean sometimes about feeling guilty about being happy and my mom would have wanted me to be happy as well and not be sad because of her.

When I feel happy then it turns to guilt, how can I be happy when my mom has just died. But I know that she always wanted me to be happy. I am taking some medication and it helping keeping me more stable, so i feel good today. Though I had a tooth pulled and it hurts! I will be better tomorrow. How are you doing?

Thanks...I definately have good days and bad days. Ever since my mother was diagnosed, my emotions have been up and down and I feel like Im on an emotional rollercoaster at times. Each day is different and I, like you, have learned to take things one day at a time.
Comment by Julie Dolsey-Weiss on September 15, 2009 at 11:42pm
Thanks you are so kind. I guess I have endured alot but with kind people like i have met here and you, it really helps. One day at a time right.
Comment by Katie Grace on September 15, 2009 at 8:28pm
You have definately been through a lot so it is understandable why you are feeling so much pain...Im so sorry for all of your losses and hope the pain you are feeling starts to become a little more bearable

I lost my grandma to breast cancer, my grandpa to colon cancer and my sweet dad to colon in Feb 2005. It is a heartache that never heals. Does anybody feel like they are alone on this planet? I feel so lost without my family, they are all gone now. If I have to live the rest of my life with this sorrow, why bother? However, I believe all things happen for a reason and my loved ones are with God but still when the heart ache comes it is so..........deep!
