Don't grieve alone; 14,000 members and growing
I guess there isn't much to say anymore. I miss him so much. He was like my brother and it feels weird and wrong and different. It's weird to think a year ago we were laughing and were so close. Its weird to think that someone who was once so beautiful and full of life is now rotting six feet underground in a wooden box. I'm not sure of my religious beliefs but I think I hope he's either moved onto the next life or has his own personal heaven with everyone he loved. I hope he has his…Continue
It has been 8 months since I have talked to my person. I have 1 year and 5 months to go until I can talk to her again. I miss her everyday. I am terrified that she will forget me until then. I do not know what to do if she forgets me. I talked to her everyday for over a year, she was there and she saved my life. I miss her so much.

Imagine living a beautiful life with your husband and two baby daughters. You have just moved to a new state and city, loving every moment of it. I was 30 years old and he was 31. Change happened fast, as if in a scary movie. The ground we walked on shifted and we had to learn to fly…Continue

It’s up to you to choose if that hole will be filled with pain, anger, and the eternal darkness of loss . . .
Or if you will choose to fill it with light and love and have that hole shine out of you like a spotlight into your life, keeping their memory alive . . .
It has been 15 months since my daughter Denise has passed away. I wake up every morning and wanting to call her like we did every day. She was so full of life and she had everything going for her.She left behind two beautiful young children. Denise died of E-Coli. She was not aware that this poison was in her system, while Septic shock spread throughout her body very quickly and shut down all her organs, Denise lived in California , while I lived in Florida. so I was not aware how bad…Continue
I don't know what to do anymore, so I'm going to write.
Every day feels worse and more lonely than the day before, since I lost my husband and best friend. I never knew life could go from being so beautiful and wonderful one day to being an ugly, awful burden the next day. In November and December, I never thought life could be so sweet. My husband and I had just moved on to the next phase of our life. We had bought a house only months before. We were finally finished moving in…
How long do you grieve for your someone?
How long is too long?
How is it that I feel so empty, as in no feeling. Dead inside?
I want to move on, but what steps to take?
Counseling ever actually work for anyone????
Why don't I FEEL him? He promised me he would watch over me. He's not.
Where are those doors that are supposed to be opening up for me?
Will I be able to move on and love again?
will it be any good or will I always compare…Continue

Yesterday I said I was not going to dwell on the loss of my wife Cheryl, today I am, at least in this blog post.
It's another morning and I have been lying in bed for a few hours hoping to fall back asleep. But I have had no luck. My mind of course has been thinking of Cheryl. Of the more than 31 years we knew each other, and how we had so many experiences together that we could always share a private laugh. And now those memories are only mine. They feel like such a…Continue

I am awake again, and have some anxiety. When thoughts that I know just lead to pain have been entering my head, I try to change the subject. Not having much luck right now, but I will continue doing it.
I need to start to prepare for a trip on Tuesday. Once again, I am going to attempt to return to work. I failed a few weeks ago when I tried. The physical and mental discomfort I felt while I waited at the gate for my delayed flight, led to a breakdown at the airport.…Continue

There are nights that I dream about the funeral, about how bitter cold and wet it was, from the rain. I replay it all over again, about how unwilling I was to leave. About how unable I was to accept that he was already gone, and just his body remained. But I refused, absolutely refused, to think of him in the ground. As cold as it was, I just couldn't imagine him there.
There are days that I wake up from those dreams, and I just cry. I never knew I was capable of so many…Continue
It’s not a quick read, but grief takes time. I wrote it for those of us who will miss someone this holiday season. Happy Holidays! Peace & Blessings, Sofia
On January 31, 2014 my partner of eight years had an argument because she had been cheating on me and I was DONE. During the night she was restless and kept waking me up wanting to know where my phone was or where the charger was. Then she said "You're gonna learn." She was alive when I left Saturday morning. She had written a note but my anger and hurt from her betrayal blinded me to the contents of the letter. I wrote her a letter back telling her to go be happy. I assumed she would be…Continue
The strangest thing happened to me a few days ago. I went out for a walk on my own, a rare occurrence as I usually have my two little people with me. But this day I was alone. I strode off out of my gate and along the waterfront where I live. A moment or two passed when I realised how tall I seemed. I felt like I was walking on a cloud. Somehow I felt elevated. I wondered if it was simply because I wasn't pushing the buggy and looking down at the…Continue
