Susan and Elizabeth,

My mom Vicky passed away on December 24, 2010... I work as a teacher..I am still in denial...I feel I wasn't there for her on so many levels...because of my refusal to let it be real.  I long for hug tell her why wasn't I there enough for you...what the heck was wrong with me.

Elizabeth, I completely understand this situation, because I have been thru that as well. I had buried my father on Jan. 3 2008 in Wisconsin and my work where i lived in Jacksonville, FL, expected me to be there working Jan. 4th. Several things took place when I got back home, i wasn't really available to have time to mourn. I ended up cracking under all the stress and was put on a 72 hour hold at the mental ward. Long story shot, it's hell and I will NEVER understand how they think that once the person is buried, time to move on, be perfect, work, and act like nothing happened. It snapped me.

Why is it that we are basically told to move on and get over someones death so quickly? We are supposed to focus on them being "out of pain" , "in a better place" , "with god now" , etc.etc. greiving is necessary. Sometimes crying and lots of it is needed. I feel that family and friends only want to deal with you being upset imediately after the death and at the funeral. After that they want no part of it and wonder why you are still so sad. When a huge part of your life is now gone why is it we are expected to pull up our boot straps and get over it?

I lost my father on July 4th of this year. I am hurting so much right now. The only thing that helps is knowing he is in a better place and suffers no more.  Does the pain ever let up?  I feel so sick. Actually, physically ill. I miss him :(

I have been dreading this day for weeks; anticipating how bad it was going to be without my Dad for the first time, and that it has been. Miss him more than works can explain. I had to go to the cemetery to visit him, and couldn't help but to think about how unfair this whole situation was. My father was one of the most stand up men I have ever met; helped anyone and everyone during their time of need. He was payed back in return by getting dealt a shitty hand of cards in this game called life; from muscular dystrophy to cancer to death at age 55. He leaves behind many broken hearts between his children, and all of his grandchildren. Why him? Why not the loser crack heads, or the child molesting scumbags? Why? I will never understand! I still need him; I still want him here!!!!!!! It was not the same today Daddy; it never will be again. I love you, and miss you more than you'd ever imagine <3
