Thanks for posting. I just had surgery, and am a little behind on my emails. It's hard to believe some of the things we now have to consider - not what to buy for your children's birthday, but how to acknowledge it now that they are no longer with us. I think one of the hardest things still is what to answer when someone asks how many children I have. Sometimes, I really don't want to share.
I appreciate you taking the time to share with me.

Connie, I am so sorry for your own loss. Each time I read someone's story I wonder how they got the strength to go on, it's all so unimaginable. I find myself functioning, but feeling very apart from the "normal" world who have thankfully notnhad to cope with our catastrophes. I can't say I'm finding any peace or comfort, it all seems pretty bleak at rhe moment. Intellectually I know that won't last but our family has had some residual medical issues following Carrie's death and it's all exhausting.and unimportant. The nights are the worst, I keep reliving the last month, days of her cancer ordeal and can't shut off the brain. Someone told me that you never get over it but that you do eventually get used to it, I guess that's the best to hope for.
We are all here for you, I opened this site for my own selfish reasons, I was so desperate to find another person that has lost a child, someone that could help me! Who would have thought that we would have all found each other, it's a terrible road to go down but it helps when someone is holding your hand!
Connie, I am so sorry. I hope that you will be able to talk about your Mom and brother. Talking is really good for all of us. If you do not want your words to be public, please go to the website, www.grief-and-comfort.com - you can vent or cry there because your words are never posted publicly.
