"First loves are important, and clearly this girl/woman meant something to you, and still does. There is nothing wrong with you; you are a feeling human being, and you are sad at the loss of a person you loved. I suspect, from what you've…"

"I am sorry for your loss John. It has been 1 year now since I discovered she died. It is somewhat more manageable because I have reached the stage where I accept what happened. But it still hurts a lot.Your experience is very similar. The shock I…"

"Regretting this is certainly part of it. The tragedy that this girl that I cared about so much met such a horrible fate at such a young age is the cause of the bulk of my grief. The fact that I went traveling through all those decades not knowing it…"

"There is nothing wrong with you.  More than likely you are grieving for how the relationship could have been or should have been had things been different.  The loss is real.  This is normal.  "

Discovered someone died years ago

Five months ago I found out that a girlfriend I had in high school, who I have had no contact with in the 48 years since graduation, died of cancer over 35 years ago at the age of 28. This is causing me such severe grief that I have to think there is something wrong with me. In all those decades I focused on the family I started, and have only thought about her very little, when some event reminds of "one of those times back in the day".It has been almost half a century since I have seen this…See More

Some quotes

Today is the first day of the rest of your life - UnknownThis was something my mom used to have hanging in our living room, and since Jeremy passed away, it's something that is very close to my heart. Why? I'm still trying to sort through my heart and soul for the answer. There are so many quotes I never paid attention to when I still had my husband and our life together. However, since the day he died, a lot of those quotes have made their way into the essence of my being. Here are a few of…See More

"I'm sorry to hear that, Tina. I'm not sure that I could be the 'someone' you're looking for to understand what it is you're going through because I have never been in a situation like that. I just wanted to say that, no…"

Jeremy's accident

I've decided that I'm going to write my blog/journal entry in my Google Drive app, and then post it here because quite frankly, there's nothing like being in the middle of a sentence, deep in thought, and having your phone lose your spot because your hand caused the phone screen to rotate accidentally. Today is gonna be another one full of tears. I'm going to take a guess here, and say, "It's probably going to be a natural thing for me to start crying (off and on) around Thanksgiving and not…See More

Complicated

I am struggling with my grief and I really feel like I don't have anyone to talk to or anyone who can understand what I am feeling.  My relationship was an extremely complicated one in which I am married and he was not.  However, as our relationship was beginning he got a young girl pregnant and she lived with him.  He was committed to making sure his child was well cared for and that included taking care of the mother of his child.  He became such an important part of my life and the crazy…See More
