Reading your posts, you always say almost word for word how I feel. It's coming up on six months and never since we met in 1967 have we ever been apart for more than six months. Even when I went to Viet Nam, we were able to meet…"
"Someone gave this to me today.
A Reflection By Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Nothing can make up for the absence whom we love and it would be wrong to find a substitute; we must simply hold out and see it through. That sounds very hard at first, but at the…"
"Geraldine, it'll be five months on Thursday that my Darling died in my arms. I know she loved me with all her heart and if she could she would send me a sign. I'm convinced that she can't. I just hope that she can…"
"Morgan, Thanks for the post. It's not even 3 months since I lost my wonderful wife and I decided that I'm not interested in "getting better". That's what those who say they want to help want me to do. …"
"The only fears are I have is that I'll live a long time, or it's really lights out and will never be with her again. I keep begging for a sign and nothing yet. If she could somehow give me what I know had to be from her, I…"
This is so hard what you're feeling. You say your bereavement group won't help either, and maybe it won't, but I did find some comfort in being around people who were right in the thick of it. It used to hurt to go out and see…"
"Grief. So all encompassing.so very difficult to move beyond it. So very sorry for your loss Joe. I joined this group a while ago but find it hard to share. May you be able to take one step forward each morning even if at the end of the day your…"
"I identify with so much said here. It's been only ten weeks but seems like as the time passes it just gets worse. I know that my mental state isn't very good but I too think that until I die, I'll be in agony. Every…"
Word for word I could have written what you did. I've have the very same thoughts, all of them that you have. I feel the same way. I wish I could give you some positive outlook but I can't. My wife died…"
"Thank you for sharing Sharon and sorry you lost you're true love, best friend and lover. What I'm finding out is that everyone wants to fix me somehow, just like when you went for therapy. From what I read and hear is that we…"
"Hello Joe. I am so teribly sorry for the loss of your beloved. My dear husband died 2 years ago. Unlike your wife he would never go to the doctor, just worked 6/7 days a week waiting for the day he could retire. He died 2 weeks before his 64th…"
"Thank you all for your loving replies. Every day, all day, she's all I think about. It's like a nightmare that I'll never wake up from. Alison, the way I feel now, I don't even know if I want to feel…"
"Joe, I am sorry of the loss of the love of your life. You shared 51 years with her and that is amazing and wonderful. My fiance and I loved each other like you guys. We strived to make each other's lives more enriching and exciting each…"
"Dear Joe, I'm sorry for the loss of your wife. It warmed my heart this morning to read your touching tribute to her. I hope in time you can remember her with joy and fondness, as well as with tears. It sounds like you raised some wonderful…"
Im sorry for your loss no matter how long ago it is.
i can only imagine the pain and emotions you are still going though.
for me it was taking care of the kids and finding one thing to achieve (no matter how small) helped a lot. it was as small…"
Hope every one is doing fine. Last week my father got an infection and was hospitalized so could not follow much here. Now he is better and recovering.
Virginia, you seem to be totally engrossed in the guilt which I can…"
"So the dr talked to my therapist and he told her the same things he told me. I had asked her to try to get more answers. I actually feel worse because I had someone ask some doctors about using ventilators. The oncologist told us…"

"Theresa, since talking to you last I have been searching for a natural solution to your issue. There are new supplements since I went through this about a year and a half ago, but my best advice would be to talk to your doctor about trying a new…"
"Hi everyone, I have been reading, going through a tough time with my friend her dog is getting ready to go to the rainbow bridge and that set me into anxiety. My stomach is flaring up no matter what I eat.
I started to think about my mom…"
"Virginia, my dad was horrible. My mom and my brothers and sister moved to NC where mom had family. I was six. We found a little house to rent. We had left all of our furniture at our house in Ky. I remember the day the moving truck came to our new…"
"Bluebell, I do not know if you have the same symptoms that I did. It was scary. I was in my shower one day. I was looking at my bottle of shampoo and I couldn't remember what to do with it. And then when I reached for it, it was like my arm was…"
Those are hurtful things you had to deal with. I am so fortunate that drinking was never a frequent activity with most of my family. The only thing I can say is this. I am the one feeling guilty, desperately hoping my Mom…"
"Thank you Brett. It is very scary. What I do not like the most is the lack of motivation and being so easily fatigued. I am also frustrated with the lack of support from the Doctors. I keep asking it it would be dangerous to increase a certain…"
"Brett, the dr may realize that he didn’t tell me what was going on in the hospital and that’s why I have all the questions. I blame myself for getting upset with him, then not seeking him out but he might feel responsible. I…"
"Virginia yes I will tell you what she lied about who my father is my mother told me the man who is on my birth certificate was my father but he told me I was not his daughter and I look like my so called step father who raised me since I was a baby…"
