"Dear bluebird, No, no one who has ever lost a cherished loved one can understand our loss. I used to mean well and try to comfort others, but I still had my David and could not possibly know. And yes, I do believe in an afterlife. Dave was a very…"
"I've found this site to be helpful, too, in that at least I know that some of the people here understand somewhat what this hell is like for me, because they are in similar situations. I don't think that people who still have their…"
"Thank you bluebird,
It has become so necessary to connect with all the kind people here. "Hell" - can any other word describe this place with "No Exit?" I'm so sorry about your husband - I too wished I had died with my…"
There are many people here, me included, who understand the sort of loss and pain you are feeling. Not exactly, of course, as this hell is different for each person, but we get it. My husband died five years ago, and I wish I had died with…"
It is so hard, especially after just a month, to lose your love, your everything in life. I lost my beloved partner of 35 years less than 3 months ago. The agony is indescribable - no one understands, or can reach you in this…"
Sorry you're not doing well.
Hopefully the results of your bloodwork will give your provider somewhere to begin with treatment - what do they say?
What kind of work do you do? If you can't do it anymore, aren't…"
"Bless you Richard,
You're pulling all my strings.
I too cry out for my beloved to come for me and not leave me behind; it's been my worst nightmare.
Is there some physical malfunction the reason for your weight gain? What does your…"
I am so sorry for your loss.
My partner of 35 years also died in Sept at the age of 70. My David looked like your father in your profile photo together. It is so painful; we are never ready to let them go - we need…"
My name is David.
I'm new to this site. I'm so sorry for the loss of your dear husband; we do whatever we can find to ease the pain. I too have found that journaling helps; it can be very cathartic.
It is amazing that…"
"I'm so sorry, Richard
The loss of your dear Annette would be more than enough to handle. You also have health and financial problems, and a job you dislike - all so overwhelming.
I understand how you want it all over and be with your…"
"Thank you, Alice
It was so nice of you to send me your kind thoughts. Even though it's been less than 3 months since my David's passing, sometimes I feel as though I have said it all and heard it all. yet the grief and pain live…"
"Hello David, I’m so sorry that you are suffering. It is a completely devastating experience to lose the one you love most. It’s one thing I know about. There are many grieving people on this site who read the posts just to feel…"
"I'll keep going though. I'll keep praying. I'll keep putting one foot in front of the other, but I do not seem to get anywhere.
I will always pray for a wink or a nod. Just something to let me know that the Lord is walking with…"
"Guys, my heart is just broken. So broken. It's not because of some kind of change. It's just three years of sadness that continues to pull me down, and makes me feel that there is very little hope. I am a very spiritual person. When lie…"

Thank you for your response, and for providing the link to your post about your NDE as well as describing it in more detail here. Although it's terrible that you were in that accident, in a way it was a blessing for you, in that it allows…"
"2012 September 30th. This fight is real. My only son was shot in the head. The girl and her brother were in the house when it happened. The told police that they were playing with the gun. Well a sister and brother will die and go to hell or heaven…"
"Hi there. Brett, you were (are) totally right -- I was and think I still am in shock. There was so much to do, and with my kid to take care of, I wasn't processing. At all.
Still not. I didn't get to say goodbye. She was in a…"
"As Brett suggests, you sure can be griefstricken without feelings of guilt -- for me guilt doesn't seem relevant to my deep sadness about losing my mother. It's more a combination of loneliness, shock, emptiness, disappointment…"

"Seems like we all have our regrets and sadness that we live with every day. But I have noticed for myself that though I still have them, they have softened over time.
On a different subject I want to celebrate this morning of being able to…"
No happiness. Nothing to look forward to. Constant pain. Memories everywhere and longing to be able to make more or even talk about them. Scared, needing answers, anxious, lost, angry, devastated, guilt ridden. how could life be so cruel? It’s just not possible.See More
