"2 years seems excessive.  Did the two of you talk about getting together in 2 years?  Life can be so hard.  Just take one day at a time.  Stay in the moment.  I know that is hard too.  From experience, I know I have…"

It has been 8 months since I have talked to my person. I have 1 year and 5 months to go until I can talk to her again. I miss her everyday. I am terrified that she will forget me until then. I do not know what to do if she forgets me. I talked to her everyday for over a year, she was there and she saved my life. I miss her so much.See More

Grieving someone still alive?

I lost someone who is still alive. She was a staff member at a hospital I was at. It is a rule that a patient cannot contact staff for two years after your discharge. It has already been 8 months.  Me and this staff were REALLY close and we had a lot in common. I miss her so much. She got me through the roughest of times. I talked to her about everything and anything. She was my person. 2 years is too far from now. I am afraid she will forget about me in 2 years. I am terrified to think what…See More

Profile Information

About Me:
19. Nursing Student. Struggling with Mental Health and Chronic Illness. Grieving the loss of someone still alive.
About my Loss:
Grieving the loss of someone still alive is so painful. I was in a residential treatment facility for over a year. I met some amazing people. One of the staff there got very close to me. She literally saved my life. Inevitably I was discharged after a year and 13 days. I saw her almost everyday for over a year and now I cannot see or talk to her for two years after discharge. (Just a HIPAA rule) It has been almost 8 months without her. I talked to her about everything. She knew everything about me. She was my person. She was just like me. She was even a nursing student like me. We talked about anything and everything. I miss her everyday and I am TERRIFIED that she will forget about me. I have a letter from her that I got the day I was discharged and she told me that she is going to miss me and how I gave her job purpose. So I know the feeling is mutual. But I am so afraid she will forget about me, and I have no way of knowing that. Not for two years anyways. When I really struggle, I just wish she was by my side. I know I do not need her to get by, but she was the person I went to for anything and everything for over a year and now, shes just gone.
