Hi, Phong - yes, reading others' stories and thoughts on here really helps me as well... shows me that I'm not alone and that I did not invent losing someone close. Sometimes it feels like I am alone and that nobody has ever or will ever go through this - irrational thoughts brought on by an irrational time.
Hi, Phong - just wanted to say hello, let you know you're in good company on this site. I stumbled this while I was searching online for support in dealing with my Tim's death, looking for camaraderie more than therapy (especially once I realized that to be a therapist one must be more damaged than the client).
I will say this site is a bit clunky & difficult to navigate and sometimes seems too quiet but for me it's a place to throw my thoughts out to the universe, share Tim Stories, photos, things like that... and I've met a couple very lovely people here in the short while I've been an online member. So, clunky or not, it's been a great help to me and I hope for you as well.
