"I am so sorry for your loss. I want to say 'Happy Anniversary' to you, but I went through that one too and somehow that sentiment doesn't seem appropriate. I chose to do nothing on our wedding anniversary hoping that it would pass…"
"You are not alone, just the 'drug' of choice. I eat to ease the pain, but it doesn't ease it at all. It keeps my mind occupied for a little while, but then the guilt sets in. After enduring the second Thanksgiving without my husband…"
"You are not a sad sack, just honest. This is the second for me too - my husband died on November 14, 2015. The first Thanksgiving and Christmas were somewhat of a blurr, I really don't remember much of either. Believe it or not, my 17 year old…"
"That design is beautiful! I wear mine and my husband's on a chain around my neck because I like them to be touching each other. I also wear a three-band (costume jewelry) ring on my left hand to symbolize our family unit ...Me, My Husband and…"
"I am so sorry for your loss Kimberly. It really does feel like the twilight zone at time, even almost 11 months later. I have always considered myself a strong person, but the loss of my husband has knocked me to my knees. Although I do not have any…"
"I had my husband in my life for 'only' 21 years, married for 18. It is (unbelievably) coming up on the one year mark. We have a very active son that just turned 17 last month so I am somewhat forced to be in the world. I will be forever…"
"I wish I had words of wisdom to help ease the pain, but ...I don't. I can tell you what not to do, as I sadly found out. My husband died 10 months ago. Our Anniversary was six months after he died. I thought, I am just going to treat it like…"
"Dear Denise. I am so sorry for your loss. My husband Ed died 8 months ago and I am only now getting relief from the overwhelming anger I felt - although it still rears it ugly head at such unexpected times. We have one son and he is 16. In the first…"
"While I wish none of us were in this group, I am learning so much about grief; I find Hope in hearing everyone's journey. The most important thing I have learned so far is that grief is so personal, no right or wrong way. I want to share…"
"Dear Jill, I know your pain. My husband died on November 14, 2015. Our circumstances were different, we knew he was ill but I know I would have never been ready to say goodbye. My road has been bumpy to say the least - a lot of anger in the early…"
I wish I had some advice for you because when I sign in, I notice that you often sign in I guess to check if anything new has been posted. Being lonely after losing your Love after so many years together is a major part of all who…"

"You are right. I became conditioned with my mom. Every health crisis that my mom would have was traumatic for me. And then there would be that ray of light. I would have mom safe at home once again. I developed some false hope. But as time passed…"
"Baby steps is such a good metaphor — I think when we’ve been traumatized by terrible loss, many of us lose our resilience, and basically have to baby ourselves, setting very tiny goals and challenges, slowly working our way forward.…"
"Theresa, it's hard for me to be positive about anything. I always feel like something bad is right around the corner. That's because every time I thought mom was safe and had cleared another hurdle, something else would go wrong. It's…"
"It's been a little bit since I shared but it seems like I'm just stuck, out of sync with everything included myself in a way. It's been like one long endless day. I don't know how to explain it even. I'm…"
"Brett you are right that is the "dark" side, it scares me too
That is so great about the phone call from the directors at the center, that must have made you feel like a million bucks.
You are making a positive impact, I know…"
"Avi, I actually looked up the EquoVox. I couldn't find an English link for it. I'll keep looking. I'm just really curious how it works. And I want you to make your own decisions. I just want you to be happy."
"M, I'm half Catholic, and Theresa is 100% Catholic. This is a huge part of Catholicism. Ouiji boards just scare the crap out of me. I listened to a lecture series from a Vatican exorcists. There was a question and answer period. Someone asked…"
"Brett, it gives me such a lift to hear about your new gig — sounds perfect! Lucky kids too, great when they can connect with an adult who also makes them laugh.
Your comment re the spirit world app that Avi came across brought back a…"
"Avi, things like that scare the crap out of me. I mean, how do you know that you are actually communicating with your mom, and not something bad? I believe that you may open yourself to something that may attach itself to you. That's just…"
I send you my heartfelt condolences as well as a welcome to our website. It is a safe place to come and talk or vent about your loss. Talking is very helpful in sorting out how to move forward. I would like to share a paragraph from what…"
"No we should not, God is the only communicator Avi, you are right.
We should not disturb the deceased, they are in peace, it is us who are not in peace.
I still struggle everyday, I just have come to recognize that this is my new life. "
I m sure everyone on our forum had a very bad day. I just kept myself very busy all. Since I live in Florida and it is in the 70's I worked outside all day long. I feel Julian is with when I am outside. He knew I just loved the outdoors…"
Few days back I came to know an app EquoVox which can help you communicate with your loved ones who are deceased. It seems be fake to me but have seen some videos on you tube people claiming its real. Did anybody on this group…"
