"I am fortunate to have found a great grief therapist, but yes, after two months, that $70 an hour I pay adds up. I've had to bite the bullet and do it because if I hadn't, I probably would not have moved from my bed in two months. I almost…"
"George, if not for Diane I don't know what would have become of me back then. She helped me find my way and we went to school together while we worked so we could become therapists together. Because of her, I haven't turned to…"
"I am fortunate that the counselor I have is older and a widow and the facilitator of the grief groups are both widows and they get it and have said there is NO time limit on grief. It lasts as long as it lasts.
I will never forget my husband. He…"
"John I can truly relate to you in a lot of respects when I met Mary I was a recording engineer in the Rock and Roll business and drugs and booze were a good way to pass those long days in the studio the night I moved in with her I put everything…"
"George, I have seen that so often when I supervised new therapists who went by the book, just like they learned in school. It's frustrating to someone with little life experience act like an expert on human suffering. I was taught…"
"My husband was on hospice and I know that I could go through counseling with them for a year for free. I even know who my counselor would be. She is a sweet,wonderful lady but she has never been through this he'll. She just can't truly…"

"one of the problems I find was counseling there's some of the counselors are so young they haven't even got started yet and that college book learning cycle nonsense that some of them throw out doesn't do a damn thing for me other…"
"yes sandy grief counseling is expensive I couldn't afford it either I'm getting mine for hospice right now and my doctor has a counselor that I can talk to you on the phone hospice only last 30 days once a week so like I said its not much…"
"I am seeing a private grief counselor who is a widow too. She is good so far but I am not sure what to expect since I have never done this before. The 2 grief groups are good because we all share a common loss of loved one and can talk about how it…"
"I also see grief counselors and it doesn't help much its just somebody to talk to I guess I take my couple hours a week because I'm pretty much alone all the time no support system no friends are coming to the house and I've noticed…"
"I actually have gone to a therapist a couple times now. She is very understanding and listens very well. It's getting repetitious though – I go there but all I feel wrung out when I walk out of there. It's really not much different…"
"I am supposed to start back on Monday sharon. Not sure how ready i am but i dont have much choice, i can't afford to stay off any longer. I know it will be hard but like you, i will be as "normal" as possible but yes, inside a mess,…"
