I have lost my faith.  I am still angry with God and blame him.

Mary was a true believer she told her daughter that she was right with Christ and she could go anytime myself I'm still searching for answers but I hope then when she closed her eyes for the last time that it was all she expected

George, John T and m morgan- Thank you for sharing your opinions/thoughts on the afterlife and where you feel our loved ones may have gone. I was raised by my parents and my mom is very religious. She is a sweet and loving woman my mother and a saint in her own right. And her faith keeps her strong and has helped her through 85 yrs and everything that life throws at you when you live that long. Myself personally – as I've grown older, I've begun questioning everything that I was taught in the church when I was growing up. Ive never been what you would call a devout church goer or religious. But now that my soul mate has "disappeared" I truly feel there is a different answer from what I have been told all this time. I do feel at a gut level that there is an afterlife for us. And I'm sure most of us heard that energy never goes away, it just changes form. That is scientific fact. So it stands to reason that the energy from people who pass must go somewhere. I prefer to call this energy- our spirit/soul. And the first couple weeks that my Mark was gone, I felt his presence. I do not know how to explain it. He showed up mainly in my dreams. But these dreams were like no other dream I've ever had before. They were far beyond just lucid. There was a physical aspect to them somehow. A tingling sensation in my upper body and a voice in my head that woke me up a couple of times. The voice was not my own and I felt it more than I heard it. If that makes any sense. And I know it was Mark's voice. I realize all this sounds strange but I don't know how else to explain it. So plz don't banned me from our site because you guys might think that my cheese is slipping off my cracker. It's something that's been on my mind since Mark went away.

m morgan- what you shared- interests me. It sounds a little complicated but I would like to explore this a little more. I'll do a Internet search on this subject to start. If you have websites or other information to suggest, I'd appreciate it.

I'm right there with you George. Everyday seems to be a little harder than the next. I wish I could help make your heart lighter.

Uncontrollable sadness, unending loneliness

You asked earlier about belief and is there an afterlife?  Like George I was brought up Catholic but about 12 I realized it was not my cup of tea.  I needed answers not hanging my hat on some supernatural story that no one could prove.  From the day my husband died I started reading, researching and studying physics because they are trying to prove where we come from and where we go.  This time I was looking for answers that weren't quite readily available but the theories are better than the best of the old Catholic doctrines for me. 

I think space is filled with an energy vibrating at a different level all the time.  Sometimes it comes together to form matter and other times it falls apart. It all depends on the frequency of the vibration.  This "energy" is really information (the consciousness of the universe). Information that our brain processes and spits out what we perceive as reality.  Our brain is sort of a projector screen for the movie, for the information/energy we call reality.  I think string theory and  parallel universes are a plausible idea to help explain the big (classical physics)and the very very small (quantum mechanics).  Much of it has been proven and the universe functions exactly like they have surmised.  My husband and your loved one must be connecting from somewhere in some dimension otherwise why would we feel so strong about their absence. Their energy is still vibrating somewhere.  It must be.  I also think that we were connected at some point before we even met here on this planet.  I think we travelled together in some capacity before we hooked up here otherwise why would I have been so attracted to him here out of all the millions of people I could have been with.  There has to be something that brings that energy together in this physical form and I want to believe that I will be reunited with that energy when I leave this physical body.


I would never have studied physics if I wasn't searching so hard for an answer as to why I have been in soooo much pain from my husband's death. But over the past two years it has been the one thing that has made some sense to me as to this thing we call death. 


Today I went all day without crying. That is a first in weeks and weeks.  Maybe I'll have a second day too.  That would be a bonus. This has been the hardest thing I have ever had to do and when I read about how we all wonder how we are going to make it through I can only say that when you wake up you end up making it through because your body overules your mind.  It is going to have another day no matter what your mind says.  And days change.  None are the same now.  Crying comes at you like a slingshot.  No rules.  Just coping.


Enough for now.  Jus thought I'd throw my two cents in the ring.

I am empty!!!

Just got back from a dog walk. Here in Southeast Alaska its a rain forest. Just not tropical. Anyways it was pouring-pouring- pouring rain out side when we walked. And on this walk I was thinking... during a walk that it rained like this, either Mark was with me or he was at home making dinner for us. And I remember how cozy and happy I would feel when I got home and dinner smelled so good and the rain was pounding on the roof and we're sitting down to eat and we had each other. It was the most amazing and content feeling. The rain made me happy. This evening– I cried my way thru the rainy walk and I cried when I came home in the rain. Now the overcast skies and the pouring rain make me feel lonely, dark and empty. Nothing feels like it is ever going to be good again.

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
