"Toyanne, I'm so sorry for your loss. My love passed away on May 29th of this year from lung cancer and he was given 6 to 8 months but he only lasted about 3. I have our 2 year old daughter that looks so much like him and I feel…"
"Toyanne, I know just how you feel -- only I was given 4 months instead of just a few days. We did not know anything was wrong at all before Feb. 24th, and he passed on June 24th. no hint of any problem, no shortness of breath or anything…"

I've been a member for, oh, just a couple of days, but I've noticed a possible lack of focus on LGBT issues related to the loss of loved ones.I know what I had to go through - even with medical POA and a will - to gain legitimacy with the "powers that be" with regard to authorization for cremation, among other things.Just wondering if perhaps there are issues unique to the LGBT community that the other fine people on this site did NOT have to go through.I welcome your thoughts and…See More

I just lost my Love of my life husband to Lung Cancer yesterday. We found out last Saturday that he had lung cancer and they said that they didn't know what type of lung cancer it was and we had to wait on the test results which to be on Monday. When we got the results on Monday they said that he had 4 months to live and on Thursday the turned around and said that he had a couple of days to live and then yesterday afternoon he passed away. I'm having such a really hard time dealing and coping…See More

I am so sorry for your loss. It is understandable how sad it is when you don't get to say goodbye due to a loss so sudden.
To share my experience, my Mom passed like this. I also did not get to say a goodbye (e.g.…"

Hello -My name is Karen. I lost my only son at 22 years of age in a car accident in March of this year. I am doing "okay" considering.

I have also started to explore my Spirituality and looking for unanswered to questions to my existence and purpose. I welcome anyone that would like to share their experience…See More
"Theresa, it's horrible that someone would say, "It's not the end of the world" to you. That is cold. I am so sorry.
Your mother in law... again, I am so sorry. You deserve better than that. We all do."
"I hate to use the word resentment because I have enough on my plate right now. It takes energy to resent people. Negative energy. There is already too much of that in my life.
The really hard part is that I got so much unconditional love from my…"

"One of the things that makes me feel very guilty (here) is that I do not want to discourage anyone who is making progress. I don't want to bring them down into the pit with me.
