I have read a little about your losses from your profile, but I was wondering if you would be interested in sharing a little more of your story with me. I am part of a research team at Saint Louis University that is looking at end of life decision making and family communication. If you are interested in taking part in an interview, please let me know.
Thanks Bob for accepting my friend request. I'm not quite used to this website, so I wasn't sure how to respond just to one person. However, I really do appreciate your support. I think that's great that you have three children, although I'm sorry to hear you've lost all the rest of your family. I sort of consider my friends family now because I don't have much family either. I'm having a tough day today, but thank-you for the information you sent to me about the Afterlife. Now that my mom is gone, it don't fear death as much as I did before. I have as many loved ones in heaven as I do here on earth. Anyway, I hope you're doing well and thanks again!
thanks for the information and I will read a book by Zammitt. I've never been held by dogma and so will read with an open mind and hopeful heart. thanks for the information. Right now, I have no fear of death because I am so depressed but, someday, if/when life looks better, I wll need spiritual counseling for myself, right now I just need to read about where my mom could be.
Do you think everyone goes to the same place when they die? Right now, I would be happy to believe there is a place people go when their bodies quit living. My faith has been lost. Thanks for your input.
Thanks for sharing your experience with me. Was your 8 yr old living with you at the time of your nde? Before this experience with your mom, were you skeptical of afterlife stories? I'm just a detail person and am really interested in your experience. I sure wish it would happen to me!

"Hi All Guys
I was away for few days as I am blessed with a baby girl on 10 Aug 18. Both mother and baby doing fine.

"Thank you bluebird. My kids have been a huge comfort for me. Making me laugh even when I don't want to and giving me someone to occupy my time and energy with. I am working my way through this slowly and they help…"
"Anxiety/panic is awful, I had it so bad after my mom passed I was walking with my legs shaking, it was awful I though I this how I have to live the rest of my life in a state anxiety/panic?
Just awful I understand what you are going through."
"The indifference is hard. I hate it when people ask me how Zim doing or how lifw is... I just want to scream at them “how do you think it is!” My boss constantly asks me and everytime I just respond with a “fine” or…"
"I wish that I could have handled the loss of my mother better than I have but I do believe that what I am experiencing is a testament to how much I loved my mom. To have gotten through this without scars would have been awkward as well. I would have…"
I found going back to work (due to needing to support my family) possibly saved me a little from falling to much into my grief.
It was also very good for me to be around normal adults, as i don't have much family near by, and…"
sorry to hear about your wife passing. i can only imaging and guess at what your going though.
After my wife passing last year, i had family and friends helping out
with me and the boys.
i feel that lots of men tend to bury/push…"
I'm sorry, it must be so difficult with the children. At the same time, they are also part of her, so in that way it's good. My husband died shortly before his 42nd birthday; I was 44. My life ended the moment his did.
"Thank you Nancy for the kind words. I'm sorry 06to hear about your husband. My wife's grandfather passed away 17 years ago due to cancer that progressed quickly too and I watched her struggle with the grief. I know that your experience is…"
