The sorrow and grief has morphed into anger and rage... 

Comment by Tildyc on April 1, 2015 at 11:49pm
I'm so sorry for all the pain we have to go through. And even though I don't know everyone here personally – We are connected. We are sharing the most painful and devastating time of our lives with each other. Some of us have family and friends and some of us do not. But honestly, I truly believe that this is a very lonely and sad journey that we take with no one by our side.. But the connections we make here, in my opinion – are turning out to be a lifeline for me. If it weren't for everyone here – I would be completely alone. Just like m morgan said before – we are kindred now. I find myself checking this site frequently. Every time I am having a hard time dealing with all the pain- I look to you guys for support. No one else really understands me except for all you folks here. And I want everyone to know if you ever need my support, I will be here for you.

Oh Dianne, I am so sorry that you are having to go through all of this. I do most of the work that has to be done for my dad. I don't think that I could do it all, not with my grief being so heavy. If you ever need to talk I'm on here a lot. It's how I keep what little sanity I have left.

I feel the same way John. Sometimes I would get so frustrated with Mark. I live with those regrets everyday. Now I find myself getting the same way with my daddy. I don't want to be that way, but while he is suffering so am I. And I completely understand that it doesn't feel real. I still wake up sometimes and expect to see him beside me. He carried a walking stick and quite often I sleep with it. Seems silly maybe but it gives me some comfort. It's laying here beside me.

My dad has Alzheimers and I dont have any kids or siblings so making sure he is cared for is my job. I have him in a very nice place but it is really hard to see him slipping further and further into the disease. My husband was always a buffer for me. He could distract my dad when he got confused and asked the same questions over and over....I really needed him tonight.

George-I wish I could help. I was in that place Sunday. We all understand and we are here for you.

Yes John T. And just 3 1/2 weeks layers I moved in with my younger sister and our dad. Now I am his primary caregiver. He is on home hospice with a brain tumor. With all of this in just 12 weeks, I spend most days on autopilot. I need a vacation from reality.

Oh George – I'm thinking of you. And I find myself in that place often. We are all here if you need us.

Nights are the worst for me. I can stay busy and run errands during the day but at night I can only stay gone for so long because of the dogs. So I sit here watching mindless TV and feeling lonely and overwhelmed too.

My Story

When I was twelve my mother was murdered then my beloved sweet grandmother died when I was 18. My maternal grandfather died when I was 22. My maternal grandmother died when I was 33 and my final living parent/grandparent died when I was 35.  I lived with a lot of loss most of it came at a sudden clip.  I'm left with incredible feeling of loneliness even though I've been married for 20+ years and have two wonderful children.  It's tough to share my true feelings with my wife because it's so hard…See More

My Story

When I was twelve years old, my mother was brutally murdered during a robbery of our home.  I came within minutes of finding her body but by sheer chance I didn't.  It has been over 35 years since that day but it still effects my life today.  As a child, I went through the trial of the man convicted of killing my beautiful mother then as a man I went through his parole process finally his death from illness in prison. See More
