Profile Information

About Me:
I'm 48, no kids, and living common law with my boyfriend. I work in a professional job but am on leave at the moment due to health issues, and the death of my mother and my inability to cope.
About my Loss:
My mom died suddenly on March 30, 2017, 3 days after her 84 th birthday and one day after she was admitted to hospital for what they thought was leukaemia. They later said they weren't sure what it was she had. All I know at this point is that she has some kind of cancer but the death was due to having been given too much pain medication overnight in the hospital.

THOSE THREE WORDS: "I LOVE YOU"

Annette's been dead just under eight months. My grieving hasn't stopped. I try but I keep getting worse mentally and physically. My groin has swollen more and now due to the fluid build its reaching past my knees. Grotesque doesn't come close to the sight of my misshapen body. I am a freak who is stared at whenever I manage to find the slight strength to go out. So it got me to thinking. As homely as I am, as disgusting as I have become, I remember those three words my wife and I lived with…See More

Mankind’s Fight Against Mortality

NOTE: My blogs are not posted with the intention of promoting any organization or religion. The goal of these blogs are to provide the same comfort I received for the death of a loved one. Enjoy.Death is a fearsome enemy. We fight it with all our might. We may try to deny it when it strikes someone dear to us. Or, in the exuberance of youth, we may imagine that the enemy will never come to claim us—a delusion we cling to as long as we can.Few thought more about immortality than the ancient…See More
