I have a wonderful daughter and fiance. I have a big family who I enjoy spending time with. My daughter is my world and she keeps me busy.
About my Loss:
My niece Isabella (Issy) was taken from my family at the age of 2. She was a light in all of our lives. It was so sudden. She passed away from cardio respiratory arrest due to a seizure while she was sleeping. I think about her everyday, and although the day to day is back to normal, there are those days that I feel overwhelming grief.
Crystal, thank you for your kind words. I am so sorry for the loss of your neice, she is such a beautiful little girl. I can just picture her waiting for her family at heaven's gate. What a beautiful homecoming you will have. The only thing that gets me through the pain is knowing that my mom will be the first person to greet me when it's my turn to go home. I miss her so much, she was my best friend, we talked every day, sometimes twice a day. She was such a special person in my kids life, she had a very close relationship with my daughter. They were like two peas in a pod, I always joke that I'm raising another Karen. I don't know how people deal with the death of their loved ones without the knowledge of heaven and God. I don't think I could. Thanks for sending me a friend request and for reaching out to me. The same goes for me, if you ever need to talk to someone I'm here!
"Hi Miriam, You have my deepest admiration and empathy. I don't have any family left to speak of. For years there was no one to talk to about my daily life. Although I found it difficult to be open with people and preferred to help them rather…"
"Miriam, thanks for what you’ve said here, think it will be helpful to many other people here and I hope writing it down will help you as well. What you say about the way you miss your uncle, the loss of rituals and of his expressions of…"
An uncle in our family committed suicide. For five years his wife, Aunt Alice, said the same things over and over again to anyone who would listen. We are a loving family, so we listened and said the same hopefully comforting things back to her again and again. And after five years she was done and could move on. I hope it doesn't take five years, but I need to talk about my Uncle Jim and my cousin Paul and probably repeat myself a lot. It took a long time to develop my relationship with…See More
"Hi everyone, My name is Katherine.
I am learning how to deal with the loss of my mom, she passed away two months ago.My mom was never my best friend, but she was so much more. She made me the person that I am today and living without her has…"
Two months ago, my mom committed suicide. As of now, this has to be one of the hardest things I have ever dealt with in my life. I hope that through this forum I may be able to just reach out to someone who can kind of understand what my situation is like.My friends try to talk to me (and I do reach out to them) but I feel that the situation I am in is a really heavy thing to talk about (basically I don't want to rope my friends into my troubles, nor do I want to be a burden to them). I talk to…See More
"Dona, I am so sorry for your pain. A difficult relationship like yours always leaves all sorts of conflicting feelings that are hard to sort out. I hope that the support you receive here will help you find your way to a better place."
"Hi, I'm brand new, too. I needed some place to talk out the grief that other people don't understand and don't really want to listen to. Hopefully, this will be a helpful place for both of us. Whatever your loss, I…"
This morning there was a crescent moon. I always called it a "fingernail moon," but my cousin Paul called it a "toenail moon." I got all choked up seeing it. Then the Valentine cards are out at Walmart. He loved all the holidays, and I always sent him cards. But no more. More tears to fight back. Sometimes his love for you would overflow, and he would just have to give you a big hug and tell you that he loved you right then and there. I have never had anyone else do that for me. I knew…See More
"Hello to all of you who are here for the same unimaginable reason as I am. I found this website last night after another night of going to bed where instead of sleep, pain sets in that I was able to escape from all day by being busy. Jess's…"
