Don't grieve alone; 14,000 members and growing
Today is 2 months since I lost my only daughter to cancer and to me being reminded in some way of what used to be is a hard one for me. She was my best friend, we talked quite often and I visited on occasion. When friends talk about their adult daughters it brings to light the realization that I once had that and I don't anymore and the tears come. I guess when I'm not reminded,I want to still think she is here,only a phone call away. Already many things have changed, we used to talk on the phone every Mon & Thurs and I was able to hear her voice in response, but now I talk to her and I have to get used to the fact that I'll never hear her voice in response. When I make statements about what I'm going to miss about her to friends,they respond then change the subject quickly. This hurts and I don't understand why they do this.
