Hi Deb, Thank You for reading my comment. Do I have anyone to Live with? No I live alone and have a cat. I DO have a friend that lives about 5 miles from me and he has been there for me. We are Just FRIENDS. Paula
Thank you for viewing my post. Your positve comments and support mean so much. It hasn't always been an easy road, yet I know, slowly but surely, I am moving forward.
I am sorry you had to find this site. It's not a place any of us really want to be, but it is a source of comfort knowing that here you are never alone. I hope you are able to find peace and comfort as we go into the holiday season. Always remember not only are you not alone here on this site, but you will always have your family close by nudging you along everyday.
Deb, I am so sorry you had to join this forum but you will find support here from members who understand. I was just in the chat room you were in and you seem to be a caring, compassionate person who gives good advice. Losing a child is the only thing I can think of is worse than losing a spouse who was a long term "soul mate". My wife passed 3 months ago and I will never get over it. There is guilt involved because I made some wrong decisions in her medical care and did not step in sooner when things were being overlooked. I also lost both parents but I got through the grief after several years. Losing a spouse, however, is like losing half of your being and your remaining life is just pointless. Welcome to a place where grief never ends and where we try to give each other hope of better days ahead.
I am so so sorry for the loss and sorrow you are feeling. I know that the holiday times are and will be extremely trying on you. I find comfort in two particular Bible passages and maybe they can help you as well... Romans 15:4 says that through the Scriptures we can gain endurance, comfort, and hope. And the hope that the Bible holds out of a resurrection is in John 5:28 & 29 of a time when all those who have passed away would come back from the memorial tombs. I hope if you have a moment you can read those passages in your Bible and I would love to share more with you if you'd like.
