Back to Years later...

For me about the 1st 10 years is hard, and when I dream of a loved one that has passed over it just brings much grief.  But after 10 years when I dream of them it is like we had been together and it…Continue

Six years ago today  I was told  my husband was brain dead and that he would not be coming home with us. I miss his so much and still wonder how this happened.  The nights are so lonely now without my love.  I try to keep busy with my grandchildren but when I lay down to sleep I'm alone....

Today is the 3rd anniversary of my husband passing.The holidays this year was harder than the first 2 years.  

Comment by Annette Dominguez on January 4, 2012 at 10:53am

It has been a year since my husband died on 1/1/11. I miss him so! I hate being by myself. Some days I still cry and cry. I have cried an ocean of tears. I know others feel the same way I do just by reading the posts below. I keep praying for the hole in my heart to go away but I don't think it ever will. I miss his hugs and kisses and beautiful smile each and every day. My kids came home from college for the holidays so it made the days easier but I still was wishing he was there with us. I don't lilke the idea of creating new memories without him but I know I have to. I feel like I will never be happy again, the sadness just keeps lingering. I used to be a very happy and optimistic person but now I can't even think about the future. I am afraid to plan anything because if it doesn't happen the disappointment would overwhelm me.

Someone please reply and let me know if you are feeling the same way.

I lost my brother ten years ago when I was seven years old.  Now at seventeen, almost eighteen, I feel the need to talk more about his passing.  I really didn't undertand what happened; I mean at seven I don't think it's possible to fully grasp the enormity of the situation.  Now, though, I have and need to talk.  My parents don't talk about it; it's there way of coping.  They don't talk, and therefore I don't either.  I know it's not healthy and bottling everything up isn't good for you, yet I have done that anyway. 

They say, "Time heals all wounds," which is a wonderful theory, but a false one to.  It does get easier but the wounds still hurt.

My son was murdered in 1997 he was 25.my youngest and my only son. It has been fourteen years but i still remember that night like it was yesterday. I had to accept the fact that he was gone, but i sure did not like it. I have three daughters and each one of them has dealed with it in there own way. I have many wonderful memories and the last thing he ever said to me was that he loved me

I lost my 24-year-old daughter 15 months ago.  I don't believe I will ever feel 100% whole.  My world collapsed when she passed away.  It was so unexpected and I miss her more today than ever.  My comfort comes from her two beautiful children.

My friend Tyler died from the "choking game" on August 4, 2009. Its been a little over 2 years. Just when I start to think it's getting a little better, it hits me like a ton of bricks, and I feel just as bad as I did the day it happened..

While I was sleeping

It has been 4 years since my mom died.  I still think about it every day, and can't seem to look past it.  I know I need to go grocery shopping.  I know I need to entertain my 4 year old but before I do anything today I want to share what has helped me tremendously in making my mom's death easier to live with.The first thing that helps is remembering her and being stubborn about NOT letting her go.  I don't have to let my mom go.  She already went.  The thing I do have to do is admit how I feel…See More
