I'm sorry if I'm in the wrong group. I was under the impression that I was speaking to those that lost a spouse not a child. That is a terrible loss. And if I offended anyone, for that I'm also sorry, was just looking for someone to talk to about my loss and trying to make sense of it all just like everyone else. I still don't think anyone should have to pay to talk about their pain. That's just for the record. Thanks for listening thus far. I'll go back to dealing with it just as I was before. Alone, it's much less confusing and less invasive.
I thought grief support was about healing the heart and mind and soul. Not so much about buying books and CD's. My husband has been gone for 3 years and as of yet, I haven't found anyone that truly wants to hear about it or support anything unless you buy something. Anyone out there? I not only lost my husband, my best friend, my confidant, but I'm financially devastated. Anyone still want to talk?
When reading Everyone is Healed I was curious about your conclusion that some of us "grievers" just aren't willing to do the so-called grief work. First off, if you personally have never lost a child you are wholly unable to grasp the magnitude of that grief. I consider the mere act of surviving to be grief work.
I am sorry, but I do not know what you are responding to. If you have lost a child, you will understand we go through periods of grief, I think almost craziness. I am sorry if I said something unjust. I hope you are getting better, I know I am trying to.
Hi Nancy ran across your page. That is neat that you have made something out of this. grief is not to laugh about but the idea is ok. because it is so hard. your books look interesting. i don't like the term good grief.carrie
