"Shayla, I am not in your situation, but since you have had basically two significant losses (the death of your mother, and the death of a happy marriage), it might be helpful for you to consider seeing a therapist. At the very least, it will give…"

"Hi Shayla, I am not married at all, but I lost my Mother in April to a five-year battle with vascular dementia. I do not know anything about being married, much less unhappily married. However, I can tell you that my mom's lost hurts more now…"

"Robin, I'm very sorry to hear about the loss of your dad. I can't begin to imagine the pain from losing a parent so suddenly like that. I just lost my mom 2 months ago. The pain, the loneliness, the sadness, is unbearable at times. Last…"

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

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
