Don't grieve alone; 14,000 members and growing
These past five years have been so hard on me that I have completely changed as a person. I lost the person I loved most. It doesn't matter if that person is your mother, father, daughter, or son. It doesn't even matter if the one you loved most walked on two legs or four, such as in the case of my "dam" dog as someone here rudely implied. I have lost nearly my entire family in the past five years. My poor little dog was about all I had left. My husband is ill, and my only child has stomped on my heart so badly with dangerous life choices he has made. And in the midst of all my grief, I have to try to work and make a living for myself. There's no one to do it for me. My grief was so bad at one point that I nearly died. I have a four inch scar across the wrist to prove it. That's why I joined this group, for support and to hopefully be there for someone else. I do genuinely care about others and their sorrow. Apparently, though, some feel they have a monopoly on sorrow. And it's those I feel sorriest for. Every one of us on here has deep sorrow or we woudn't be here. And who we loved most in life is important to each of us, whether a child, parent, friend,...or a dog! Goodnite to all, and thank you to those who cared about my pain.
