Hi my name is Ronda. I am really going through a hard time. 15 years ago I found my husband hanging in our garage. Within a matter of days I found out none of our bills were paid, our house was in foreclosure and I had $150. I figured a funeral for him then had to move everything. Mostly give things away. I didn't keep anything of his. I jumped in to a relationship for 12 years. I'm finally with my family but I am reliving that and having anxiety. I know I am so angry at him also because I also found out he was cheating on me. I just don't know how to get past this.

Thank you, Rosie, for the reminder to keep going "for them." As much as I have wanted to just check out so many times in the past 13 years since my son's death, I have forced myself to keep functioning because he would not want me to abandon his brother and sister. I honor James' too-short life by trying to live up to his example of compassion and kindness.

It's been over two and a half years since my dear brother, Dan, passed away. The best "advice" I've received from someone who has also known great grief - "It doesn't get better. It just gets different."

While that may sound gloomy, I actually found a lot of comfort in that thought throughout the past few years. I don't expect to ever be who I was before. I don't expect things to not feel heavy or to not have a huge whole in my heart. There's now a "before" and an "after" and I can't go back. I'm able to function and get through the day and even enjoy some activities, but I'll never be the same. The best I can do is strive to make Dan proud of me and honor him in life. But it still hurts every single moment of every single day. Hope you all are coping okay. Keep going - for them.

I lost my Dad, my best friend, seven years ago.  It really does get easier but it took a very long time for me to get used to him being gone. 

It's a burden that needs to be carried with me the rest of my life I think.

Is anybody still here? It looks like all of the posts are from several years ago.

Comment by Vivian Henriquez on January 19, 2012 at 3:00pm

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....

 Here is the story of my son, Matthew-He was an easy baby, full of smiles and laughter but a rather shy little boy. He was so gentle natured. He grew up to be a wonderful person. He was well liked by his schoolmates and continued to be a nice, sweet person. He wanted to be a 2nd grade teacher. He went to Community College, worked at PISD as a mentor and also worked part time at Tom Thumb.When he turned 21, his life changed forever. He had been experiencing issues with drooling, tiredness, kept…See More
