"Sarah, I am sorry for your loss and I hope that being on this site will be of some comfort to you. I can relate in some way to the sense of guilt that you feel because I was not able to protect my daughter from what happened to her. I felt suicidal…"
"I am sorry for your loss, Sabina. My daughter was murdered in 2011, and it took me until august 2018 when I joined this site before I could even write the words. I still have difficulty talking about it so I keep it to myself because it is not the…"
"Crystal, I am sorry for your loss. I wish that I had found this website sooner, there is nothing like being around people who can relate in some way. Please give yourself the time and space you need to grieve in any way that feels right, even if…"
"I am sorry for your loss, Teri. Although I did not lose my daughter to cancer, I am a caregiver to a friend who is battling a different form...I am here to offer my support and encouragement to you and your family."
My daughter was murdered in 2011 and I have had great difficulty adjusting to life after that traumatic loss. I am an artist but have yet to connect with anyone else who can relate and can offer mutual encouragement and support, but I am hopeful that I have come to the right place.

"Connie I'm sorry but just know your words do stay in my head.
Keven's mom...I'm so sorry that phone came. There's nothing I can say or do to make this easier on you. Just know we know exactly how you feel. Your…"
As all of you have stated, I too fake my happiness. I laugh on the outside and am crying for him on the inside. I ache so bad that my Julian is not in my life. I just don't understand why God won't take me. Until he does, I…"
"Morgan. I wish I had answers but I am in the very same place. Lost, fake and hollow. I feel worse than I did a year ago I think because I thought I would feel better and don't. Empty and apathetic. I'm tired all the…"
I don't know why this has happened to us, our soulmates being torn from us, but it fucking sucks. Have you considered not acting happy and normal, since that isn't how you feel? Especially if acting that way isn't helping…"
