Does the pain ever get better?
16 Replies

Just curious ... it feels that I am being split in two with the pain and I cannot imagine what it will be like for me if this is my new "normal."Continue

Peace to You Today

I want to thank you all for your comments and kindness. I have not given up on life, but I have given myself a break and allowed myself to fully feel the pain of my losses. I am moving through one day at a time and trying to stay productive. Blessings to all of you.

An Excellent Description

I offer yet another impression of ‘normal’ grief and complicated grief. I approach all grief reactions as a complication in the life of the individual who seeks help with this human phenomenon. We travel life’s roadway and suddenly, around the bend, the bridge is out. A death, a life-threatening diagnosis, accident, layoff notice, or other traumatic change has painfully altered the course of our journey and requires a new way of looking at life. The process of grieving represents a…

Just Saying

I am giving up as of today. There is simply too much loss and too much sadness.

I haven't slept well for such a long time, and have been looking for a job for five years now and counting. I cannot seem to make things work, and more and more things are being taken away. There is no help from anywhere and I long to jut go home to my real home in Heaven. At least there I won't have to worry about unpaid bills, hurting, and disappointing others because I can't just snap out of this grief…

Daddy

You were my best fellow, my first love. How am I going to navigate this world without your guidance and without being able to feel your arms around me or hear your laughter? It is a blue Christmas indeed without you.

The day you died there was a beautiful rainbow that stretched across the sky. I…

And Gail do not worry about disappointing others! You can't add that burden to your shoulders. I understand what you mean though, but it is what it is. It's YOUR grief and you have to move through it in your own way. I have found meditation helps and if you can find a local support group. (((   )))

Please don't give up. I know you must feel all alone. But you are a musician and have a gift to help and uplift others. I am a musician and singer also. I have decided that I am going to go to hospice in hospitals and private hospice just to go bedside and sing for those who are in transition. Because I believe the spirit lives on and I know that so many people die lonely and without sometime willing to hear their fears, visions, experience  and provide some beauty into it.  I have done that before for a friend and several family members and now that I have lost my only child, the only way I can survive is to do something of spiritual value for others. It will be hard and it's just a beginning idea. But have you ever thought of doing something like that? I know it is hard to perform the same after so much loss. It has taken me almost a year to really find my voice again.

The rainbow you saw was your dad watching over you. He's still with you. I hope you can find some strength and peace today. My heart is with you. Please private message me anytime if you want to talk
