Don't grieve alone; 14,000 members and growing
It is helpful to be able to talk about the feelings that live within me everyday without feeling like I'm the only one who is experiencing this pain.
I am at a phase in my life right now where I’m struggling with loneliness, heartache and all consuming numbness.
Every day, I feel a deep sense of disconnection from the world around me and the people I share it with. The mere fact that I am writing this in the small hours of the morning, deafened by the ear-splitting silence, unable to sleep, simply emphasizes this point to me even harder. Everything that was once familiar has now changed.
The universe has stripped away a big part of my life, I feel exposed, empty, and vulnerable. I cry at everything, and I mean everything. It physically hurts if I don’t release tears, almost like a panic attack. I get agitated with friends and family; just by their presence. They don’t even need to speak. Although I know they are trying to support and comfort me. I sometimes feel like I’m in a dream. Things slow down and aren’t real.
I feel like I’m just here, walking around in a daze half the time. I feel like I’m drifting in a sea of dark feelings all alone.
