My stepdaughter Jenna passed away suddenly on 12/6/23. She was autistic and living in a group home. She was thriving and had friends and purpose. She has been in my life for 21 years. I could not have loved her more!!! She was my best friend and we talked everyday. We still don’t know what happened. We think it was a sudden cardiac death due to her medications. I just can’t seem to find purpose in my life. Everything I did was for her and I miss her every single second of every single day. It just seems so unreal so in fair. I really done know how to go on without her. Does anyone else feel this way?

I'm available if you ever want to chat or talk about her. Take care - Rose

Assumptions

An assumption is an unexamined belief: what is thought to be true without ever really realizing that we think in that way. For better or worse, understanding starts with entertaining the idea that something is true.  Truly profound thoughts generally come to light from the relaxation of these (flawed) assumptions.  This is where I find myself today...Perhaps, one of the more significant drivers to pushing down the loss and grief at the time of the accident, ignoring it and mindlessly walking…See More
