I suffered a loss in May (my best friend here of 16 years passed away from brain cancer). He was my anchor and it's a tremendous absence in my life. He'd been ill for about a year, but we thought he…Continue

"I am new here... within the past 4 years my first born son and my only granddaughter have died. The holidays seem harder, but really every day is horrible. My family has pretty much fallen apart. Our house has become a pig pen and would never have…"

Shani Friedman replied to lorraine knight's discussion Grief that hits you at odd moments
"Grief is, for lack of a better word, kind of a dick. It will just sneak up on you and it's so random. I'm just trying to accept that because what's the point of fighting it. I've had lots of triggers and I've cried at the…"

Hi - I'm New To This Group And This Is My First Post

I suffered a loss in May (my best friend here of 16 years passed away from brain cancer). He was my anchor and it's a tremendous absence in my life. He'd been ill for about a year, but we thought he would pull through. He remained positive and I was naive/in denial so when I found out he was suddenly in hospice, it was a shock. I thought I would have time to say goodbye, but he stopped the cancer treatments he'd been on and was gone less than a week later. He was in hospital before hospice but…See More

I am new here... within the past 4 years my first born son and my only granddaughter have died. The holidays seem harder, but really every day is horrible. My family has pretty much fallen apart. Our house has become a pig pen and would never have become like this for any other reason. No one has any effort to help one another. We all just exist... with little talking about the past 4 years. How are we supposed to go on without any reason to make things better?
