"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…"
"I'm still missing my dad, too, dream moon JO B. It's been four years since he died, and I still wish we could talk, and enjoy movies and music together as we did for many years. But the years went by too quickly. Even the…"
"Happy St. Patrick's Day, everyone! I remember how my dad and I used to have corned beef and cabbage every year without fail. During Lent he would bring home hot cross buns. On Easter he would buy big cookies shaped like rabbits, ducks and…"
"Dear Jennifer, I am so sorry for your loss. I wish you peace and comfort. Losing a beloved parent is one of the hardest things in life, especially after losing your children's dad. A friend of mine who also lost her father was…"
"How is everyone doing? It's been three years since my dad died. I still miss him every day. I still dream about him and wish I could turn back time. There isn't much left that I haven't said about him on this and other forums, but I…"
"This is the third anniversary of my dad's death. I think about him every day. I miss him so much, because he was the nicest man I ever met. Life will never be as happy without him, unless someone just as wonderful comes into my life, but I…"
"Thank you Kelly for a genuine and bright yet deep insight into how berievement has affected you. Children are resourcefull and it isn't till in later life that the death of a loved one creates a new reality. I've written a song about the…"
"Over the last couple of days, I've had some real negative thoughts, scary to say the least. I know I'll never see her here with me again, which I know but can't accept, but today I questioned is she here with me in spirit? …"
"Marita, not that I am glad to hear you suffer from anxiety and fear but thank you for at least sharing that you too are overwhelmed with living. At times I want to scream that the way I feel is not some cry for sympathy but more I am…"
You were the original poster who made it real for me that telling the truth about our pain was ok. That it was how this grief was going to be no mater how I might be told otherwise. And to know that your truth is that pretty…"
"Linda, yes, I too have the recurring thoughts my brain sends me that my husband is dead. It's not possible for me to accept it either. I know it as fact just as I know the sun shines, but when it appears in my brain I simply cannot…"
"As much as we all suffer, some may have an additional burden of having to go out into the real world and deal with people in business to survive. The impact of that makes it all that much more unbearable. While I'm not in that…"
"Same here, Marita. Things I would have been able to deal with before (either before I met my husband, or while he was here with me), I cannot handle at all now. Any tiny problem is insurmountable. Everything is.
Morgan, I am truly sorry you are…"
i live with constant fear and anxiety. Every time I am confronted with a new problem I break down because my husband is not here to support me, to comfort me, to love me and it is a reminder of my loss. When things become so…"

My whole problem with myself is I just can't accept my Husband's death and there is a not a thing I can do about it. I want things back the way things were. So to avoid all my breakdowns I try to numb myself with beer. I don't…"
"Avi, I felt something very similar. After a year the pain and shock of mom's death had eased somewhat, but the guilt increased. I learned that grief is a process that has many different facets.
I am really amazed by the folks who seem to…"
"Terrible,horrible, crippling breakdown tonight. I know what triggered it and it is something I have struggled with all these years and the closer I get to trying to solve it the worse the breakdowns are becoming. Problem is I am still unable…"
"Avi, these anniversaries are so hard and confusing. My husband’s birthday was this Saturday, and Mother’s Day, the first since my dear mother died, was on the next day, Sunday. A hard weekend to get through. I want to…"
