"Mother's Day was a few weeks ago in Ireland. I spent it with my husband's family. It was not great, but the day was never going to be great regardless of what I did. I feel that staying busy was probably better than staying at home and…"
"Hi Lucy, I am so sorry for your loss. I empathize with what you are saying. Navigating the grief of others, as well as your own, is like a mine field. My siblings definitely didn't react in the way that I imagined and honestly I have not…"
"Sarah, I am so sorry to hear about your loss. I have sat here for a few minutes trying to form what to say to you and I am having trouble because there is nothing anyone can say that will make your situation any better. Similar to you, my mother was…"
"Hi to everyone that is new. I am so sorry for your losses and that you have to join us. Xx
I am not sure when Mother's Day is in the States, but it coming up soon here in Ireland. It's been hard seeing all the cards and gifts in the…"
"I am so sorry, Angel. It is a horrendous thing to lose your mother and especially awful to lose her so young. A home is never the same when the mother gone. My mother has been gone almost 7 months and every day is a challenge. There is not much i…"
"Margie, I am so sorry for your loss. There is not anything that we can say to make you feel better. I can only tell you that you are not alone in feeling this way and it is completely normal. I lost my mother in June and both myself and my sister…"
"This website is like a secret world we inhabit where the platitudes and scorn for not fitting in are understood as hogwash. We know better than anyone on the outside of our grief how this has affected us. I am so tired of being labeled…"
"I,m grateful that I found this site. It's sort of like besides my family, you all are the only friends I have left. I do have a couple that are long distance, but don't get to see them very often. All my so called local…"
"Morgan & Joe,
Thanks for sharing your thoughts. You put into words the horror I go through everyday. Going on year 7 without my Husband Julian. He was my whole life and I want to be with him but I can't. If I didn't believe in God I…"
"Joe, 49 years is a long time. Long enough to embed yourself in each other and there is nothing that will soothe the tearing apart of that union. I knew my husband for 55 (since 2nd grade) and we were together for 35. Long…"
"Morgan, Monday will be a very tough day for both of us. It's one year for me which seems like one long day, and six for you, which scares the hell out of me thinking about how long do I have to be here before I go to her. It seems like one long…"
"Lets be honest. Death sucks. As I read the posts on here and I see how we struggle when we lose someone to death it boggles the mind how any of us keep moving. I keep saying to myself there is something I can do to make myself feel better and it…"

"I agree with all of that. I didn't expect a reward. My mom was reward enough, but I am not the same person that I once was. And I thought that some kind of balance would occur. I can't explain that really. It's been defeating. As soon…"
"After my husband’s death, and now after losing my mother, I also found myself somehow imagining that, not so much that something good would happen, more that some kind of reward would come to me, something to balance off the pain and…"
"There's something that has been on my mind lately and this is the best place to mention it. As much as I feared and dreaded my mom's death, I sort of felt like something good would happen, maybe not right away, but eventually. Like Karma…"
"I know how you feel. I lost my mom Jan 6, 2019 and it is so raw and all I do is cry. I was in the room when she passed and had been all day. My regret is I wasn't holding her hand when she took her last breath. She had dementia and I saw her 3…"
I am not a doctor but I am a student of the Bible. It seems that you are suffering from anxiety over your past. Humans including ourselves seem to filter the good things we have done and focus on the "bad". But God is the opposite.…"
