This group is an extension of my Yahoo group with the same name. I started it soon after my dad passed away. Sharing our experiences lets us know that we are not alone. Grief is a process and we go through it in our own way and in our own time. The motto of HUGS is "We don't have to get OVER it, but sometimes we need help getting ON with it." There are lots of groups on the Internet and even on this site but it's my hope that you will find this one to be both a healing and a growing experience.…See More

I am an assistant teacher, mother of two, and wife. I have a 15 yr old daughter with special needs and a 10 yr old son.
About my Loss:
About 5 years ago I lost my mom, she was single parent since I was 4 and raised me along side my grandmother who died in 2009. I am adult who feels orphaned. I have no other family and I feel so alone. My husband tells me "it's ok" and to "relax" when I get upset and it irritates me because he doesn't understand how alone and upset I am. All he says is he wants his wife back. I don't think I will ever be that person again and I know that no one will fill my mom's shoes. My husband calls his mom "mom" when he talks to me, example... "Mom called and said hi" this makes me so sad and upset that I can't breathe! How dare you try to have me call someone else mom or even refer to someone else as my mom! My mom was a very special woman and will never be replaced.

I wanted to write today about anger. After my son passed away, many of his friends wrote beautiful memories and feelings about him via Facebook. I didn't realize how much he meant to so many people and how many lives were touched by his kindness. However, what angers me is that not ONE of these "FRIENDS" ever came to visit him in the nursing home. He was in a nursing facility for 10 years and yet only his dad, myself and his stepdad came on a regular basis. I understand that it's hard to see…See More
Yesterday my headaches were bad so I managed to get an appointment with a doctor who was on call at my local surgery, since it was a Saturday morning.
As soon as I was in her room I just started to cry. I felt so silly, but being there…"
"Hi Ros, no, I didn't know about your injury. I'm so very sorry to hear about it, but don't worry, I'm sure this has nothing to do with your headaches, since it happened two weeks ago. Of course, you feel more vulnerable now…"
I can understand your many thoughts regarding Claudio's ashes. All these "what if's" go through our minds don't they? I often wonder about many things I do in the here and now and things I wish I…"
