No one understands until they experience this kind of loss.

I lost my partner, soul-mate, wife, my heart, on October 17, 2009.  We were together for 29 years(almost 30); 15 of those years were filled with breast cancer.  I am still lost and have so many days that I feel I cannot go on without her.  We had very little friends when we moved and no support.  I am still in counseling and continue to go, but as far as other support, I have none--No family and "conditional friends." This past holiday was the 3rd one without her.  It was the hardest so…

January 3, 2012

I  have completed 1 full year without the most important person in my life. It has been surreal. I still find it difficult to believe that this is the way it is. Death is not supposed to happen. I feel kind of like a fake- like I'm not really here living a life- I just look like I am to some people who don't know better. I have aged a good bit over the past year. Larry was 8 yrs younger than me & always sd. he was keeping me young, to which I would reply I looked older next to his baby…

On December 12, 2010, my mother passed away...

I also lost my very best friend, that cold December day. 

It is my hope to publish my story, so there will be a record of what I went through.  Most events are still quite vivid in my memory, however, there are some things that are less clear.

I know that I NEED to forgive those who hurt me during that time, but I'm having a very difficult time in the process.

I expect to take a long time explaining the…

$13.33 - Remembering Dad on the Anniversary of His Death

The anniversary of my dad’s death is New Year’s Day. For some reason, it wasn’t on my radar. But as New Year’s Day inched closer, I began to feel it.


On Friday, December 30, for no specific reason, I drove to the cemetery where both my dad and my sister are buried. As I began to drive away, I noticed that the song playing on the “'80s on 8” station was called “Fly High Michelle.” I thought I knew every song from the 1980s, but this one from a band called Enuff Z’Nuff was new…

Raising my grandaughter

Hello All,

     My name is Gen,

I found my daughter in my apt on Thanksgiving night. She was dead from an overdose of drugs.

You never expect that you will be burying your child. The day after her daughter turned 4 yrs old.

The hardest part was telling her child that her mom was gone. My daughter was in a drug program

and  only had a week and a half left to complete her program. I know shes been depressed due to

the dept of children services taking…
