I understand the frustration you must have. I know it's easy to place the blame on god and to want to be upset with him for taking someone away that you still wanted so much time with. It is a difficult process to loose someone too soon. I…"

My father passed away in 2008 from multiple myeloma (cancer of the bone). It was a sudden death that happened about a year after diagnosis. I was in college at the time and in no state to deal with reality. My family and I have always had a difficult relationship and were not overly affectionate towards one another. I would say that I was definitely closer with my father than I was with my mother. I ended up going through a rebellious young adulthood. This distanced my relationship with my…See More

Is It Wrong to Grieve?Have you ever had a brief bout with illness? Perhaps you recovered so quickly that you have practically forgotten the episode. Well, grief is not like that. “There is no such thing as ‘getting over’ grief,” writes Dr. Alan Wolfelt in his book Healing a Spouse’s Grieving Heart. However, he adds: “Over time and with the support of others, your grief will soften.”As an example, consider how the patriarch Abraham reacted when his wife died. The Bible says that “Abraham began…See More

"Hello AnneJ and everyone, In a couple of weeks it will be 3 years since I lost all that mattered to me. Six months ago I started unpacking and hung some pictures where I live now. I did it out of embarrassment rather than a desire…"
How do you deal with well meaning family/friends who just don't understand what you're going through? 2 of my sisters-in-law still have their husbands. One does not have a good marriage, she talks about her husband dying flippantly she says things like "I know if _____ died I would use the insurance money to go on that vacation he never wants to go on." Then in the next breath "Are you still going on your cruise next year? I could take (my husband's) place if you want so you're not alone."…See More
