You are a wonderful, loving woman. You have been such a wonderful compassionate friend to so many of us here. I am sending you my energy and my love to carry you through one second at a time.

We learn so much about ourselves on the road to recovery after loss. Not all of it is good, but all of it is important. I don't think there is a more important lesson that the souls can teach us, than to learn how to forgive ourselves for whatever we have done to ourselves and those around us because we are in pain. We can't hope to move on to a perfect world if can't see the importance of setting ourselves free from guilt, from anger and from pain. To forgive ourselves is to fix the soul, and lighten the load here just enough to be able to continue our journey of hope. – George Anderson

Hi Mercy, thank-you for your kind comment. I'm so sorry that you lost both your mom and your brother. That's a double whammy, but it sounds like you're making great strides with getting through it. I'm so happy to hear you have a daughter. I have a feeling the two of you will be best of friends and she'll be the source of so many wonderful days ahead. She's definitely one great big reason to be alive and well. I also live in the Nashville area and I was seeing a grief counselor for awhile and she's the one who told me about the Alive Hospice, so I hope you'll try it. Anyway, I hope you're having a good day and hang in there! You've got so much going for you already and I feel a lot of positive things are coming your way!
Thank you, Mercy for your kind words, in the midst of your own suffering. I'm so sorry you are so alone in your grief and that your husband is no help! Maybe you can find a support group, or some people who at least have been there and can understand. My issues aren't with my parents, but as I told you, my sister in law and brother, but I know this too, shall pass.
Life goes on. My grandmother always said things have a way of working out in the end. So be it.
Take good care of yourself; you are loved and needed.
Hi, I saw your comment about Thanksgiving and can totally relate.I lost my mom to cancer almost 2 years ago and that whole spiel people say about time healing is BS. As long as I am living, I will miss my mom who was my best friend. You have a lot of connections that are the same as me. I lived in Antioch as a little kid and my sister's birthday is May 28. The positive thing I focus on is my children, but even that makes me sad b/c I think of all what my mom is missing out on!
hey baby, its been awhile, i have not been up to being on the computer or doing much of everything, but i think i told you that i found a guy, and he is great, but we have yet to meet in person....i hope all goes well, it could be "it"....im excited....wish me luck...i think of mom, but she would be happy for me....have had alot of hard times recently, and wished she was here, but she is, in spirit....i carry her with me always....hope you are good, let me know how you are, you can email, even yahoo me baby, anytime you want, im on there alot too....would love to talk one on one sometime....love, rachel
"I am new here and don't really know how to navigate so forgive if I make a mistake. I am drowning in pain and have been ignored by friends. I have only two left and both have many things of their own. I sit at night and hurt until the…"

"Over the last couple of days, I've had some real negative thoughts, scary to say the least. I know I'll never see her here with me again, which I know but can't accept, but today I questioned is she here with me in spirit? …"
"Marita, not that I am glad to hear you suffer from anxiety and fear but thank you for at least sharing that you too are overwhelmed with living. At times I want to scream that the way I feel is not some cry for sympathy but more I am…"
You were the original poster who made it real for me that telling the truth about our pain was ok. That it was how this grief was going to be no mater how I might be told otherwise. And to know that your truth is that pretty…"
"Linda, yes, I too have the recurring thoughts my brain sends me that my husband is dead. It's not possible for me to accept it either. I know it as fact just as I know the sun shines, but when it appears in my brain I simply cannot…"
