"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…"

About my Loss:
I met Nick in 2018 through an online dating site. I wasn't particularly interested in him but he talked me into meeting. Once we did, we were practically inseparable. I thought what we had was too good to be true and it turns out it was. After three months he started showing signs of severe insecurity- with all the behaviors that go along with it. Our relationship had its ups and downs and we almost broke up several times- I just kept relenting and told myself we were meant for each other, despite the fact that he scared me sometimes and that I had to act a certain way to avoid a confrontation of some sort. Less than a year into our relationship he ended up in the ER. When I got there his son told me he found cocaine on his coffee table and I was shocked and felt betrayed. Doctors gave him a 1% chance of waking up because he had suffered an intracranial hemorrhage. He died two days later. I've done all the crying I can do, I think. Now I'm suffering from panic attacks, which I think is because I am filled with unresolved anger and with questions I will never get the answers to.

I'm starting this group in hopes that people who come to oninegriefsupport in the U.S. can share in their experiences and grief for homicide related deaths. There are tons of support grief services for cancer, alzheimers, loss of children, suicide, ..I could go on. But there are not many support groups for homicide related issues. With the growing gun-related deaths, I thought it would be prudent to create this small sub-group here.I know that grief is very unique and it shouldn't be compared…See More
Regrets... I have them too. I met a man in 2011. We were friends for years. I was in love with him. Yet, I never took the chance to further it. I thought I had all kind of time. I thought I was being patient. Then... He committed…"
