Just sad.

It has been a year and a half later and it feels like he died before I was born. I went through a hard time grieving but, now I feel the grief again but he feels so far away. I don't know if it is him I am grieving or if there is something else. I just know I am sad and unmotivated to just take life day by day. I want to know how to slow down and take life day by day. I feel like I am on edge for the next thing to happen..good or bad.  Just sad.

Starting to grieve, but not able to let go

I have never had this feeling before. I know I have to let go of him, but I can't seem to do it. I went to a health fair the other day. They were collecting money for the American Cancer Society. Once you donated, you can put the name of to whom you are donating on a card they would hang on the wall. I couldn't do it. I couldn't imagine his name on one of those In Memory of cards. How do you let go? What holds me back? I don't know what I can do to actually let go and accept he is gone. I am…

Anyone who has lost their gay partner..soon finds that there may be a few things that are different...such as sorting through things and feeling like an intruder because it is also family stuff etcSee More

An assumption is an unexamined belief: what is thought to be true without ever really realizing that we think in that way. For better or worse, understanding starts with entertaining the idea that something is true.  Truly profound thoughts generally come to light from the relaxation of these (flawed) assumptions.  This is where I find myself today...Perhaps, one of the more significant drivers to pushing down the loss and grief at the time of the accident, ignoring it and mindlessly walking…See More
