Young Adults Grieving

For those who lost anyone close to them at a young age who need someone else. I lost three close loved one in my senior year and in the process of losing another, its good to relate to people your age.

I lost my Boyfriend on September 6 2010 , 3 days before my birthday. He was 18 & He was stabbed and shot multiple times all over his body & face. He was destroyed & found behind some factories. It will soon be 3 years, i Miss him so much every single day , hour , minute , second. A huge part of me died , my world turned to black and white, it kills me to know he's not with me anymore. All i want is to be with him once again. Always has been and always will be my number one. I feel like i am starting to hit rock bottom once again. I don't know what to do or who to talk to to help me get through this.  It hurts me more and more as the days go by.

Hello Im 18, I lost my boyfriend on the 31st of July 2012 in a motorcycle accident, a 4x4 car pulled out in front of him as he was coming down the road, he was on the way to mine and never turned up I waited up all night for him in the morning got a call from his best friend in the morning telling me what had happened, he was only 20. Since then my friends have stopped talking to me and avoid me only mine and his family really help me out I don't really know what to do at this point in my life, it's hard to just to get out of bed in the morning and that's not what im like, just need someone to understand?

I am seventeen, well almost eighteen years old, and my brother passed away when I was seven.  Ten years ago was the worst night of my life.  Coping hasn't been easy and talking about it has not been easy as well.  I finally realized, after I did my college essay about my brothers death, how bottling everything up isn't working any more.  I need to learn how not to be hesitant to talk about him and I think this may be the start.  I don't talk to my parents because it saddens them too much.  Making me all alone right now...  My friends don't know how to help me and guidance is what I truly am searching for at this time in my life.

I am 15 years old. On August 4, 2009, I lost my good friend Tyler to the "choking game." He was only 16. On December 3, 2010, his mother Tina, who was my mother's best friend, and like a second mother to me, was murdered. It hasn't been easy, and I miss them like crazy. I can't talk to anybody about it because I feel like nobody understands..

My name is annie I am 23 and my fiancée shot himself on march 24th of this year he was in a coma for 3 weeks before his family turned off life support, I went through not believing it was real even though I was there when it happened to being mad then went about a month of seeming to be fine still thinking about it everyday but could finaly get out of bed and not burst in to tears over a song on the radio or a movie on TV. Now I'm starting to feel guilty for going on with my life like going out with friends and things like that. I was asked out on a date and couldnt go because I felt like it was wrong almost like I was cheating. I kept thinking things would getting alittle easier as time went by but it seems to hurt worse the longer it has been. I'm not really sure what to do to start working toward becoming myself agian.

Hi, my name is Natalie Rochester and I am a master’s student from Texas Woman’s University conducting a study for my thesis. The purpose of the study is to explore the relationship between types of pet loss, attachment, and grief. I was inspired to research this topic after the loss of my cat about 1.5 yrs ago. She was like my own child and the dismissing response I received from others encouraged me to conduct my thesis on this topic. It was cathartic for me, I hope it does the same for you.


You are invited to participate in this study if you are an owner of a pet that you have lost (death or non-death) within the last 3 years. You must be at least 18 years old to participate. Your pet loss may consist of any type of loss – death, runaway, stolen, adoption, etc. The lost pet must have been owned by you or is a family pet. This study was approved by TWU Institutional Review Board. Participation in this study is voluntary and may be ended at any time without penalty. There is a potential risk of loss of confidentiality in all email, downloading, and internet transactions. To participate in the study, please go to: This study is estimated to take 15 minutes.


If you have any questions or concerns about this study please contact Natalie Rochester at Your participation is important and much appreciated. Thank you.

When I was 18 years old I lost Albert Anderson. He was my best friend and died in a car accident leaving my house (well, he lived with us...). Im now 28 and still think about him alot. I am still grieving for him, and I carry around feelings of guilt because I also lost my own father at 7, but cry for Albert... I now don't have Lyle, my only sibling... I know that I have a gigantic fanclub up in Heaven, but Im starting to wonder if God is going to let me have a family on Earth or if everyone's on there way out the door. Is that fear justified? Is the anger I feel justified? I feel all alone and scared.

when i was 18 i lost my grandmother she died on january before i graduated high school. my mom just died on may 14, 2010 less than 2 weeks before my 21st birthday. my grandmother had been sick for a while so it wasnt that much of a shock when she died but my mother was a victim of a homicide suicide her ex boyfriend shot her 4 times then killed himself. its so hard to dealwith especially now that ihave a kid of my own its just really hard

i just lost my nephew on the 17th of this month he was 17 years old he had a epilepsy seizure and my brother found him dead. Me and my nephew were close every time i saw him he would give me the biggest bear hug and he had the brightest smile. His friends set up a memorial web page for him. There is a web site that you can set up a memorial web page for a person its

Yeah I've been thinking about doing that but I don't really know what I should look for when it comes to finding on. Which kind would I go to? One that would work with my to naturally deal with everything or someone who would prescribe something to help? Who did you go see?
