Veronica, I worked in a field where many would say to me I found the Lord and I always thought to my self I did not know he was missing! With that said you have been dealing with many daemons and now you are adding grief to the mix. The devil will always challenage you and hang that golden carrot in front of you only to beat you with it in the end. So stay strong. Pray very hard and learn to keep saying no to the daemons. Stay in counseling and talk, hold nothing back. The would haves, could haves, should haves are all questions we ask ourselves so your questioning Rob's passing is normal. Grieving and drug addiction rehabs are all a baby step process so stay strong, keep a good stiff upper lip and keep coming here. When one of us falls there seems to be someone there picking us up. Many hugs and prayers, Jane P.
To all ... As most of you know I live in British Columbia, Canada and have had my share of fights with the medical system. I've not been well and fighting back again and I came across this song and started to laugh because this is basically is much like the garble the doctors tell me:
Tried it, eyes bugged out, dry mouth, lunged across the living room like a crab and got a hang-over. Apparently again the doc didn't tell me there were side effects with this too. LOL If there are no more tears and you're left frustrated and angry then I poke fun at myself or the medical profession and have a good laugh. Laugher is the best medicine.
Love to you all
Veronica ... I am so glad you have great faith in the Lord and you are a strong young woman and will get through this. I have no doubt that whatever you put your mind to you will conquer it.
Hugs & Prayers
Christopher ... I am thankful to have the opportunity to be heard on here as well as so many others giving wonderful advice. Please count yourself into this mix Christopher because you are encouraging, loving and caring.
When you said your Angels would say 'right back at cha, ditto' it reminded me of the story 'Ghost' with Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore. I love that movie and wish what happened at the end of that movie could happen to every single one of us ... one last dance, one last kiss and one last 'I love you.'
I hope you tomorrow is a good Christopher.
Take good care of yourself.
Christopher ... I cherish the nice compliment you gave me and it is so sweet of you as I know how deep your pain is with the loss of your love. I read your story and cried throughout because I couldn't begin to imagine what a shock it was for you to learn of your sweetheart's passing so tragically. It was as if I'd been there beside you throughout it the way you explained it so clearly. I am so sorry it had to happen to you and the love of your life. Please believe she is near you. Your grief is so raw that you may not believe that, but I (some on this forum) have experienced enough to know that for some reason our loved ones are around. No matter how long we have known the love of our lives the memories will be there and true love we'll cherish until it's time for us to go.
I learn something to this day from reading every single post and when one of you hurt I hurt as well. With that said it does help each of us to try to put things into perspective if even for a little while to help us through our grief.
I am sorry I didn't address your post, but felt it was for Veronica and I didn't want to interrupt your conversation, but now I have a chance to let you know I do read all the posts as well and prayers go out to each and every single one of you. All of us on here draw strength from each other and see us through the rough seas until we hit the calming shore.
Dixie ... You came back after a long while and it was so nice to see you post again. Where are you? I hope that everything is OK and you come back to us again. We're here for you as well.
Janeo .... 'Love and affection knows no distance!' That's how I feel about you and many of my extended family on here. I too wish we could meet; in fact, I wish we could all meet ... what a great experience that would be. We all are different ages, races and walks of life yet we all get along so well. It would be like having a family or an extension to the families some members have. Miracles can always happen.
