Another worry

Worried tonight. Husband went to specialist and news isn’t great. Doctor thinks he has a fatty liver. They are doing tons of blood work to find out why but doctor mentioned several reasons and none of them good. He is also scheduled for a liver biopsy to see how far the disease has progressed. Will I end up losing him like we did our daughter? Did the cancer come back? God how scared I am.

Angel Date

Nine years ago the clock stopped. The sun quit shining. The world stopped turning. How could it be nine years ago when it seems like yesterday? I can still see her lying on the ground, people so many people working on her. Then nothing. They said she was gone. Gone where I thought. I held her in my arms, screaming “my baby, my baby” over and over in my mind, in the air. God how could you take her? She wasn’t done. She had so much more work to do here. I need her. We need her. Am I having a… Continue

Irene's Birthday

Will there be Birthday cake and presents in heaven? Will all the angels sing Irene happy birthday? On the day she was born it was sunny, clear and warm. The first time I held her I thought my heart would break from joy. This tiny bundle, so fragile was mine. Thank you God.

As the years pasted she grew into this amazing intelligent, beautiful woman, who could make me laugh when no one else could. Her blue eyes and long blond hair lit up a room as she entered. We became more than Mother and… Continue

One Week From Today - May 11th

The sun will be coming up soon. As yet I've not gone to bed. What is the use when I can't sleep. The last time I went to the doctor he gave me something to help with that, but so far it hasn't done a thing. So most nights find me in front of my computer, a lot of times just staring into space.

One week from today and it will be Irene's 35th birthday. I wonder what she would look like. Would the tiny lines around her eyes be starting to show? Would she still have that long, long hair or… Continue

Thank you, feeling like you are not alone does help. I wish there was a way we could make it all not be real but I know that isn't possible. We have to go on until it's our time to leave this world. I want to be happy again I wonder if I ever will be

I also needed an antidepressant when my son died. I couldn't get out of bed. I was sleeping all the time. Not really sleeping just laying there and crying. I have tried two different antidepessants and I am now on wellbutrin. It seems to help. At least I don't sleep all day anymore. I am getting out of the house and talking to people. My son died January 16,09. It still doesn't seem real to me.

Thank you so much for the much needed hugs, wishes and prayers. I know those feelings don't go away, they just surface long enough to bring us a smile or a tear. My heart goes out to you and your family for your loss. I too lost my brother in law a year ago and we were very close. I just keep remembering how lucky my Sister and our family was to have ever known him and his kindness at all, he was a gift to all that knew him. Many hugs right back to you...

New York Times essay I wrote about orphanhood

Hi everyone, I am new to the group, but not to loss. Thanks for adding me.I wanted to share an essay I wrote, "Welcome to the Freak Show: Becoming an Orphan in My 20s", that is in the New York Times today. Even though all of our experiences with grief are unique, I hope it resonates in some way.Best, KelliSee More
