You are so inspirational. But its just hard to deal with everything at once such as school, family, and friends dying but thanks to another lady on hear i am getting the help i need. Its just things never seem to go my way but i am learning lifes never going to go your way but you got to make the best of what you got. I just got to get over my personal battles first. Main problem is cutting. But thanks to my dad and adopted sister i am not doing it much any more. I am finding other things to do instead. I find that listening to music and reading really helps me alot. But thanks for the message and feel free to contact me any time. And i dont think your just a old person who doesnt know how i feel. I found that alot of people of all ages have experienced something like i am going through and know of ways to cope. Thanks again and i hope to hear from you soon!!!
Hello, I was searching for my mom's obituary to make copies for all the letters I need to write and I found this website and began reading so many of the stories of all of you and it was the first sensation I have felt since my mother's death that was comforting at all. This is a hard time and I agree with one of the members, you don't get over a loss, you just simply learn to live with it....hopefully. I can relate to most of your stories with the exception of loss of a child or spouse. Gratefully, I have not dealt with those losses but I can relate to friends and family losses. I have had many in my 39years and it has been especially hard in the last 10 years. The most recent was the lost of my mother on 12/14/08. I cared for her at my home until she succumbed to her illness. It was the hardest thing to do, but I know in my heart the right thing to do. I haven't been able to grieve openly because I have a 3 year old that means more than anything else to me so I don't like upsetting her. I can say being an ER nurse and knowing the impact that a child CPR has on the staff that is involved is so overwhelming that I can not imagine the grief the parents/family deal with. I just don't know what I would do if I loss my daughter, my heart goes out especially to those who have lost a child. Thank you for all of the honest, heartfelt stories all of you have shared, they mean so much to me.
