"Welcome, Mary Kay, I am so deeply sorry for your loss. I can relate to everything you wrote about the loss of your beloved dad, except I was alone with him in the hospital when he passed away. It's the worst thing in the world to lose the…"
"dream moon JO B, are you saying that your dad told one of his dirty jokes through the medium at the spiritualist church? That's amazing! I have five different friends who have gone to a spiritualist church to try to hear…"
"Yes, it would be so nice to have them back just the way they used to be. Today I had a good cry, because my roommate was mean to me and when I defended myself, then he blamed me for raising his blood sugar. My dad had diabetes, too, but…"
"I feel the same way about my dad's favorite movies. I can't watch them without missing him. There's a huge part of my life that I lost because I can't enjoy a lot of things anymore because he's not here with me. When I…"
"dream moon JO B, your messages touched my heart. I feel the same way about my dad. We also were soul mates. Once you've known such happiness with another person it's hard to live without it. We watched Kukla,…"
"I know what you mean, dream moon JO B. People want us to be happy so they don't have to feel sad with us. It's all about their feelings, not ours. If they haven't lost anyone, then they don't know how it feels,…"
"Thank you, dream moon JO B. Yes, it's just not the same without our loved ones. Even if I were to meet someone I think is wonderful, there's no guarantee he or she would stay in my life, but the love of a good parent only dies…"
"I just had another birthday without my dad. I had a fairly nice birthday with lots of people sending me their good wishes, mostly on Facebook, but I still miss my dad. It was so wonderful to have someone in my life who understood me, who…"
"Different today. Hurts as usual, but not like yesterday.
My stress goes through the roof at the slightest change in routine.
I have to break free of the pattern, the ritual, of Friday nights and Saturdays. My mother died on a Friday. But I cannot…"
"Today, I feel it.
It has been like this every Saturday since June, since the nurse at the care home called me to notify me that I could pick up my mother's effects. My mother died in April.
I am overwhelmed.
I am crushed.
I love you, Mom. I…"
"Sixteen weeks ago today, my mother died.
For some reason, I do not feel crushed today.
But every Friday is going to be like this, a reminder that she is dead. Not quite the kick in the stomach reminder that she is dead that I feel when I wake up…"
