HELLO EVERYONE,
I HAVE NOT BEEN HERE IN A BIT. THIS STILL FEELS THE SAME TO ME. IT IS ONLY A YEAR SINCE MY BOB PASSED AWAY. ON NOV. 21/08.I TRY TO ONLY THINK OF THE GOOD THINGS, BUT I SLIP BACK TO WHAT I DO NOT HAVE. HARD NOT TO.

I AM SO SORRY FOR ALL OF YOU AS WELL. THIS IS A GOOD PLACE TO COME. THE FOLKS HERE ALL KNOW HOW EACH OF US FEELS. I HOPE AND PRAY WE CAN ALL OVER COME THIS IN TIME. MAY GOD BLESS YOU ALL TONIGHT. I DO NOT HAVE ANSWERS FOR YOU RIGHT NOW.

THANKS FOR LETTING ME HERE. GOOD NIGHT FOR NOW.
IN FRIENDSHIP, LINDA WOODBRIDGE

this pain will never end will it? I don't know how I will make it , I have 4 kids to take care of and I just pray the ground will cave in and take us all in. Basia
Hi Linda, Thanks for writing. It makes me feel better to know that there is nothing wrong with the way I feel. My husband passed not quite 7 months ago and I feel such despair. I miss him so very much. Everything I do, go or touch reminds me of him. I wanted to go to the cemetery where my parents are buried on Memorial Day weekend and planned on doing it on Saturday. I did not sleep at all on Friday night and I truly believe that it was the thought of going to Pennsylvania without my husband that kept me awake. I guess I am not ready to do that yet.

Thanks again, Linda and I will keep you in my prayers.
Hi Linda W, Basia, and Connie,
I am so sorry you are all feeling so down. Yet, I am also, I feel resigned to the fact I will feel this way until my time comes. It's been 4 and a half months and I am still in shock in some ways. How could this happen, I know it's true but in a way it's hard to believe. I'm just showing up to family gatherings so I can at least see all of our loved ones for Dan's family are mine as well. At least I get to see them but I'm only there on the surface. My emotions are not caving in but I know they will because I'm not trying to hold them in, but for a few days I always think the tears are gone but they always come back. I really believe the Lord helps me to do what I need to do but after I go through the motions the emotional roller coaster is still going. I can really sympathize with all of you here. It is really very difficult to get through each day, but somehow we are doing it. May all of you have peace and God bless you all.

Linda, I guess it will never go away. The pain and despair and hopelessness. I too try to think of all the good things but all I feel is pain. I don't smile when I think of them , I just break down and fall apart. I wish you a good night and a peaceful day. That's all we can wish for right now.
hugs to you, Basia

 HELLO DEAR FRIENDS,

I HAVE NOT BEEN HERE IN A YEAR, ANOTHER YEAR WITHOUT MY BOB.PASSED AWAY, NOV.21/08.I AM DOING A BIT BETTER.NOT A WHOLE LOT. I WENT TO GRIEF SHARE GROUP, NOT FOR ME!!BUT I WISH YOU ALL THE VERY BEST.JUST DO WHAT YOU CAN DO AND ONLY ONE DAY AT A TIME PLEASE. THIS IS ALL I CAN DO FOR NOW. BYE FOR NOW, LOVE, LINDA WOODBRIDGE

  

Hello Linda,

I am sorry to hear after a couple of years you are still suffering through the grief, I hoped in time this curse that has fallen upon us would weaken. I lost my wife, partner, best friend, cheerleader, soul-mate, etc. 2 days after Thanksgiving 2010 after a brief battle with lung and abdominal cancers. She was able to beat or live with several other health issues but at 55 the cancer was too much. My first birthday since her passing is tomorrow, hers was earlier this month and was a difficult day for me. I have not had a birthday without her since my 17th, I will be 49, and I am already dreading the day.

I hope someday we both find some peace, comfort, joy, and some happiness.

Prayers and Best Wishes,

Pete
