"I really understand this. You did an excellent job articulating yourself; it's no surprise you have a good amount of friends by your side. You are insightful and expressive and, though it broke my heart reading your honesty, a part of me…"
"I can relate as well.. specially the fear of burning out the very few people I have left that I trust, and the "too young to be so alone" thing. I hope your new counselor has helped. I will be seeing someone soon..."
"Oh no, that's o terrible. I cannot imagine the shock you must be going through. I am so sorry. I feel like losing people we love just blows a hole in our hearts that can't be filled. I sometimes walk around and people ask me how I'm…"

"Thank you Hollow Heart for your response. It's helpful even to know that someone else feels the same way. I am tired of people telling me that "it will feel better" later. I know that it will but it is not helpful for me to…"
"There are a lot of things in your story that I can relate too. I'm so sorry for all your losses. It's devastating knowing you have no close family left. I feel that is where I'm headed. I have some family, but sadly, a lot of the…"

I am struggling with the death of my mother (she died quite suddenly on March 23rd after years of chronic but not acute illness. She was in a nursing home but I was her primary caregiver for six of the last nine years). The grief feels larger and more intense because I don't have any family left. My father died when I was a teenager, I have no siblings and no other close relations. My aunt (mother's sister) died just one week before my mother did. I have an aunt left on my father's side but she…See More
Both my son and grandson were battling addictions for quite a while. I was not aware of the fact that my son was using heroin till after he died. I found him dead on my bathroom floor. I can't begin to describe what that was like. 6 weeks later my grandson who was sticking close by my side after my son died was found dead in the bathroom where he worked. Both where heroin overdoses. Possibly the heroin laced with something deadly but the tox report is not back yet. We just know it was heroin. The shock is just starting to wear off. My son lived at home with me and I am lost without him. He was not my life in some sick way but a very large part of my life and we were very close. Same with my grandson.
Hi,I'm know what it's like to need to have someone to talk to who gets it. I'm struggling with the loss of my son and grandson 6 weeks apart.
I'm sorry for your loss. It was suggested that I read a book called Good Grief which I am ordering from Amazon. Maybe you could look for it too. I recently signed up for program called Grief Share which will start in June.
The other thing I do to try to help myself is to journal what I'm going through a couple times a week. It seems to help to write things down to get them out although it's not the same as talking with another person.
I'm glad you found this group and hope that you get the support you need. There is light at the end of the tunnel. May God bless you in you're grieving process.

When i got married March 25th 2019 was one of the Best days of my life i was marrying the man of my Dreams,My best friend,My soul mate. Even though it was one of the happiest day of my life but it was also a sad day.Because i was marrying the man of my Dreams knowing that i only had a little time left with him. He was diagnosed in December of 2018 of stage 4 lung and kidney cancer that day was one of the worst days of our lives. I thought but when the time came and he took his last breath that…See More
How do I begin to thank you for the life you have given me. A life that included 4 loving children, 4 beautiful grandchildren and memories that will last forever.We had more then the romantic love we had when we first met almost 40 years ago. That fades with time. Through the ups and downs, fights and reconciliations, laughter and tears we had something more. We had true love, commitment, trust, and most importantly we had friendship. Since 1975 we have been together to celebrate every…See More
