I am so lost...

My husband of 18 years passed away on June 1, 2010 from cancer. He was only 40. We were married 18 years and together for 1/2 our lives (20yrs). I am having such a hard time dealing with his death. He was truely my best friend and soulmate. We did EVERYTHING together. I don't know how to live without him. Part of me just wants to die and the other part of me is already dead. I cry all the time and there is this pain in my heart that is so unbearable. People say in time the pain will get better,… Continue

Faith Arising

I thought I had lost it-my faith. I thought there was only emptiness, but somehow that seems to be the only thing left. I must find something inside me that can help. Missing her makes everything a thousand times harder, so now I'm searching...

(I was a brother) Solitarily Confined

I am resigned to the fact that there won't be many new developments about the point at which I'm living life now. Learning the new way to live is where I make my biggest strides. It's a dreadful thought that right as I am beginning my life journey and trying to make it in the world, and discovering what there is to live for along the way, one of the biggest reasons for all of that is lost. When I am suppose to have 'everything to live for', 'your whole life ahead of you', the person who was…

I had to take my Mom off life support, I didn't know her wishes, I feel like I killed my Mom. I could have done it today, tomorrow, or a week, but I chose the day. This is so hard to live with, I ask God's forgiveness and her forgiveness. She didn't know what my brother and I were doing, it is not fair for someone else to make that decision. It was her life! God forgive me, I need peace in my heart and to tell my Mom I am so sorry. Any suggestions on dealing with this issue.

I just lost my mom suddenly on June 26,2010 she was only 56 years old. I have ok days and then I have bad days and on the bad days I can't stop crying. My heart hurts and I am having such a hard time dealing with the grief. I found there is no word that could explan the pain that comes with losing your mom. She was my rock and made me strong when I didn't think I could do it. If anyone could give me some words of wisdom to ease… Continue

Moving On

It has now been 2 years and 1 month since I lost my Tom. It has been a time of adjustment, transition, inner searching, and learning. I have survived and I am stronger for the ordeal.

But now it is time to move on. I am not letting go, I am moving on. I will never forget the 45 years I had with Tom but now it is time for the second half of my life to begin.

I have met a man with whom I am cautiously exploring the future. He does not in any way remind me of my Tom. He is a… Continue

Keeping in touch with those dealing with loss

Not too long ago, there was a death in my family. One family member shared that she had taken care of things; she’d sent a sympathy note and made a donation in the loved one’s memory. She’s correct; she did just what she was supposed to do. But what happens in the days and months after the cards and donations cease?

A friend dealing with a loss shared that one thing she noticed was how quickly other people move on. When you’ve had a significant loss and while you’re grieving and…

Miss you my friend


I miss you more and more everyday
There is nothing anyone can say
My heart was broken,never to mend
It will stay this way till the end

I can't let go,and I know it really does show
The pain,broken heart,the lost of my soul
I will see you again,when it is my time
Then together that cloud we shall climb

Miss you

Still Hurting

It has been eleven months since Nick died. I really cannot even believe it still. Last year on July 13th, 2009, Nickolas has been in the hospital for 39 DAYS! Can anyone believe that? I cannot believe it and I freakin' lived it!!!! As I go through this summer, I think about how last summer basically did not even exist! Whole chunks of my life seem to be missing and I have to constantly do a review in my head..."Oh yeah, last summer I wasn't at the studio. I was at the hospital every day." The… Continue

Help Yourself Heal Through Story Telling

Everyone loves a good story! And although a story can entertain us, it also is a powerful tool that allows a writer to transform a reader’s way of thinking in order to let him or her see the world from a new perspective — perhaps even tilting the view a couple of degrees to the positive.

Death and other losses, as no other occurrence, teaches the survivor important lessons about the sanctity of life. As a part of the grief journey, the survivor can metamorphose into the most… Continue
