To Alicia - My heart goes out to you. I will be lifting you up in prayer. I know what it is to be lonely. Be good to yourself and know that, as time goes by, the hurt will be less. He will always have a special place in your heart, but you know that he would want you to get on with your life. Always remember the good times and keep those special memories close in your heart.

Mapisha - I know just how you feel. The anniversary of the death of my best friend in the world just passed. We did everything together. All I had to do was call and say, "Let's go." She was ready in a minute. Now I shop by myself, eat out by myself, and I don't have anyone to spend time with. It gets very lonely at times. The thing I miss most is having someone to talk with about whatever's going on. It didn't matter - we shared everything. I'll be lifting you up in prayer as you go through this trial in your life. And I'll pray that you will find a new friend. Your late friend can never be replaced, but having someone else to relate to can surely ease the loneliness. You take care of yourself, keep looking to God for hope and assurance. And know that you are never alone.

It's coming up to be the anniversary of one of my best friends. I feel the lost. She died to cancer after knowing for only two months. She had 2 girls and a husband and I know that they miss her dearly too.

Its only been a month since I lost my best friend, Shawn.  We dated for almost two years, and during that time we nearly spent everyday together. He was my other half, and I feel like I'll never be whole again now that he's gone.  It feels like there's a hole left in my heart and each day it just gets bigger and bigger. I miss him so much

My best friend was murdered January 21, 2011. The guy that did it, I introduced her to. I haven't been the same since.. I just want to die and be done with this place. I've attempted to commit suicide over 25 times and I started cutting again. She was the only person that ever got me to stop.. I don't know how much longer I can't take this anymore. When does the pain stop?

Dominic there are truly no words that can make the pain go away. It takes time.   But I know what your going through I have been there myself.  If you have read my last post I too lost my bff her name was kathleen.  She was a one million, and I believe now she was my guardian angel in human form.  I spent eight years with her, and I can tell you without a doubt it was the best years of my life. Remember all the good times you guys had together. Shawn will always be with you.  There are also groups that meet up each week that do greif counselling, it may help you dea with some of your feelings.  And please dont do anything that you will regret. Hugs, Donna.

I don't know if this site can help me but I really need help. The single most closes person to me on earth, closer to me than my own family, my bestfriend Shawn died on January 13th, 2012 and his memorial was February 4th, 2012. His birthday was February 7th, he would have been 30 years old. OMG - I hurt so badly. I cry every day and several times a day. I can't sleep at nights, I cant focus at work, I'm failing in school, and I've lost 15 pounds because I refuse to eat. All I do is cry. I just want him to come back, nothing no one says helps me, I just NEED him to come back to me pleaseeeee. Shawn always knew what to say, he always knew what to do, he was my foundation. He died from complications with CLL (Leukaemia) after being diagnosed in 2004. He didnt have a good relationship with his family, and it turns out that I knew more about him than ANY ONE else. His family was calling on me for photos and information because they've been missing the past 10 years of his life. I have nightmares where I wake up crying and I dont remember what I dream. Before shawn died, he would always tell people that he was worried most about me and how I would deal with his death. Well now that hes gone ... I can't deal with it. I just want to go with him. I don't want to live anymore. People say the dumbest things like (get over it, shawn would want you to be happy, hes in a better place, hes looking down on you) a bunch of cliches that DON'T HELP! Some days im angry, some days im depressed. I listen to his favourite songs, he would send me songs about our friendship and how much he loved me. He was the big brother I always wanted. I am a christian and my faith brings no peace or comfort. I just want to run away and leave everything behind. I watch his video of him singing (he loved to sing) ... the pain is intense, I dont want to live without him. I try praying and talking to God, i try talking to shawn, i try everything ... I can't continue like this ... my heart will fail me very soon if I dont get some help.

I lost my best friend Kathleen she was more like a mother to me,  if anything she was the mother I wish I had.  She meant the  world to me, and it was only after she died that I realized that she was my guardian angel in human form. Our friendship was an accident it was a random meeting that blossomed into a beautiful relationship. Although I was only able to know her for eight years the last eight years of her life were the best of mine.My BF4E Best friend forever
