Q. My aunt, who had no children, died and left everything (including a condo in Miami) to my cousins and myself. My cousins have almost come to blows over whether to sell the place or use it for vacations and share expenses. How can people resolve such issues?

Has anyone else had other people hijack their siblings funeral?

My Brother died last Saturday in a tragic car accident.  He has two ex wives, one he divorced over 20 years ago, but they have two kids together.  The other, he just divorced a few months ago and still practically lived with, and still loved.

When he died, the first wife just totally hijacked the funeral and shut out everyone else including the most recent ex, his siblings and absolutely everyone else.

She browbeat their sons into planning the cheapest funeral even only three…

Pushing the Friend Button

My sweetie and I loved each other very much. We were together for 5 years and we tried strived to love unconditionally. We didn't want to be traditional with marriage, we didn't want to be bound by legalities. We wanted to be free to love each other from our own free will. Now, I find that the obituary that his mother will issue will refer to me as "friend" - no describing beloved, sweetheart, long-time, loving, soulmate, special; just friend. I release my attachment to this by repeatedly… Continue

Why does my mind stop me?

I am "new" on here... I have nowhere else to go. Today is Easter... also it is my late husband/best friend/only family/protector/soulmate/life's birthday today. We were together for thirteen years. In a world where everyone refers to me as "crazy", he understood. He was the only one. He died almost 3 years ago. Each day it gets worse. With each day I give up a bit of the fight to "move forward". Why? Why do I need to move forward. I see nothing for me up ahead. I just want it over already. I…

My wife's heart attack and the bonus year.

My wife died in December 2014 of complications from acute pancreatitis.  However, about a year and a half before that, August 2013, she had a massive heart attack. 

There were no signs or forewarning symptoms.  We had spent the morning shopping and she had just made pasta sauce and finished the laundry.  She said she was feeling tired and asked me to make up the bed so that she could take a nap.  When I was almost done, I heard a strange wheezing sound and returned to the living room…

The loss of my wife

My wife Tami died on December 8, 2014.  My life changed completely that day.  I lost the love of my life, my partner in everything, and the one person that knew and understood me best.  A giant hole opened in my world and has yet to close.  I am not lost without my wife.  I am capable of doing all the things that I must to go on.  Yet everything I do seems incomplete without her to share it.  It has been almost four months now, but it feels like yesterday.  I no longer cry when I see her…

I Can Help and You Can Too

 I too lost a friend in the crash over the French Alps. I hear that the pilot had some suicidal tendencies in the past....Many of our family and friends suffer from mental illness and unfortunately we may too.

I took this class called Mental Health First Aid and it was very beneficial to me because now I know how to respond if somene is undergoing a mental health crisis. Its similiar to First Aid but you deal with a mental health crisis. That can be just as traumatic.

Writing Down

It's so raw. I keep thinking im strong and of course I am. It's just that he was my life and to put it together without him almost feels wrong. We were so in love with each other. It will just take time. I'm writing down something to do each day, next day and future day. But I did forget to write the next 3 days. I think I will try that.

Soulmate Boyfriend Passed Away

Alex was my life and I was his. He was driving on the way home from work, pulled over to the side of the road and the police said he looked like he was sleeping. People say I'm lucky because I have daily pictures and daily "I love you" but they are all gone and stopped now. I relay his videos to me...the one where he asks "where's my sweetie" and another where he says "I miss you". Every restaurant we went to we would hold hands across the table and talk until the food arrived. Five years of… Continue
