Grief Share Support Group

I attended the first in 13 sessions tonight with a group of people from all walks of life. The meeting was very therapeutic. Of course when they had us introduce ourselves and talk about our losses, I broke down when I talked about losing my mom three days after Mother's Day. But it felt good to be part of a group where others understand your feelings and the trauma that you experienced. There were quite a few tears shed among the group but I'm happy that I was able to find a group close to…

Don't worry!

Since my mom died in May, I haven't been to church except maybe two weeks after she died and then the pain of her death was still so fresh (it still is, as it'll be 3 months since she died next Thursday), I couldn't stay for the whole service. I packed up my things and left. I felt completely alone, yet I did not want to be around anyone. I felt that if I stayed I would've just started bawling and wouldn't be able to stop.

Today, was the first time I've been to church in months and…

Thank you Joy. Happy birthday to you as well! Hope we find a little joy on our birthdays even if we are missing our moms more.

Joy, thanks for the kind words and prayers regarding the loss of my Kathy. My sincerest condolences and prayers go out to you for the pain of losing your mom. I definitely found comfort and understanding by being on this site. We are all in a situation we neither wanted or deserved. You are right about our loved ones not having to put up with the crap that seems to be getting worse everyday. My only wish is that I was with my wife either in this life or the hereafter.

Thank you for your kind words... My heart goes out to you and well. You are so right, it does feel like being orphaned. I don't feel like a daughter anymore so it's like a piece of me died with them. Watching mom did the Cheyenne strokes breathing was the worst. I called hospice at 4:30am when it started and she passed at 8:45. They arrived right after she passed. It really does make you fear so much. I'm scared for my children, completely over protective. Scared to lose anyone else. The fear is draining. I feel robbed most days... But I remind myself even though I only had them for 36 years I'm glad I at least had that. My daddy packed in enough love for 100 years but I still miss talking to him every day! I'm with you in grief. Feel free to chat any time!

Being the Other Woman/Other Man

This is for anyone who has lost their lover to death and you were the other woman/other man in their life. We have to grieve in silence. I can't find any support groups and feel like I'm the only one going through this situationSee More
