"For me...I can tell you right now it would depend on what spouse passed away. I'm sure this sounds bad, but if it had been my first spouse it would have been a short grieving period. I will leave it to the imagination as to why that would…"
"I lost my husband 4yrs ago and there is not a day that goes by that he is not on my mind or in my heart. I started dating an old flame of mine and things seemed to be going great! we have known each other forever so we were already friends. We have…"
"I started dating, and although its weird, its not too difficult. Dating doesn't mean you have to forget your spouse. A guy I have dated for a little while told me he isn't looking to replace my husband, but would like a place along…"
"My heart lightens for all of you I guess it is as they say time heals all and marches on... I just hope one day my heart will move on, sounds like you are all in a better place than me...

Thank you. Yeah I know that I will never get over my husband and he will always have his own special place in my heart. But everyone talks about how they understand how I will eventually start dating again and that's no big deal (my…"
"I don't know if there is a right time per se! I lost my husband in 03 and I can get choked up looking at pictures or feeling sorry for myself when my girlfriends are vacationing with their spouses or what not. I only say that to reaffirm that I…"
"I know everyone says that you will know when the right time comes to start dating again, but I just feel conflicted. My heart is definately with my husband as I know it always will be, I cry sometimes very heavily just speaking or thinking about…"
"I was wondering how things are going as well, I do not know if I am going to be ready to date yet... I still have a lot of questions for the universe and I do not know if I am strong enough to move on yet.. I was just wondering if you could tell me…"

Amy, I'm sorry if I surprised you in anyway shape or form. I didn't mean to hurt you with message. Your husband even asked me tell you but, slowly and nicely so I wouldn't scare you. But, if u have anymore questions please ask me but, keep in mind I may not have all the answers you want either. Enjoy your daughter. Sincerely, Amber

"Hello Krista,I'm afraid this forum isn't as active as some of us would like. I remember when I first came out here two years ago, raw with emotion. I still have times when I find myself still grieving, although it isn't as painful now…"
"When the stars
shine up in the sky,
I miss you.
When the sun rises
& sets every day,
I miss you.
When the rain falls
and everything looks

Every day, every hour,
in every way,
in everything I do,
I miss you."
"Theresa, I finally came to the realization that what I was doing wasn't working for me. And I realized that taking an anti-depressant couldn't be any worse than crying all of the time, not sleeping, and destroying myself with guilt and…"
It's been 2 years and 2 months since I lost my dad, and 1 year and 3 months since u lost my grandmother. Sometimes I feel like they were never here, like this is normal life without them.

I try to remember the good moments but all I can think about is the last days.The other day I was at the hospital with a friend and when we walked in I saw my dad, like I was shook this older women was…See More
"Ok so my friend had to do the unthinkable, her dog is not suffering anymore. But it just set off a crying spell with me.
Maybe I need to go to the dr again, for the 10th time.
So he can just look at me and say, do you want to try and…"
I hope your Dad is doing well. That must have been hard on you being in the hospital. I am also sorry you are having more guilt like me. It’s a horrible feeling. Also one that others don’t understand."

Hope every one is doing fine. Last week my father got an infection and was hospitalized so could not follow much here. Now he is better and recovering.
Virginia, you seem to be totally engrossed in the guilt which I can…"
"So the dr talked to my therapist and he told her the same things he told me. I had asked her to try to get more answers. I actually feel worse because I had someone ask some doctors about using ventilators. The oncologist told us…"
