    • Oh boy.. this is a toughie.. my dad passed July 12th and all I can say is go through the grieving process...stay strong enough to get through what you need to...work...family...etc.. but do your best to take care of you as much as humanly possible inbetween...if you don’t do things you normally did for a little while ... That’s okay... If you cry alot...that’s okay... Just don’t beat yourself up for not getting over it quickly.. that’s what I kept doing.  

      It’s almost 5 month later and it feels like yesterday I lost my dad.  I miss him dearly.. the only difference is it does get better and better over time.  People are so right... so just be you...find a shoulder or many to cry on... and let it take its course.  

      For my moms death I needed to read “The Grievance Handbook or Workbook... it definitely helped.  If you need to just share or cry ...send me a separate message.

      My heart is with you.

    • For me, I just have to get up in the morning and keep putting one foot in front of the other and get on with my norma routine.  When I need to stop to cry, I do.

    • I dont think there is anything harder to get through. A few years ago, I lost 8 loved ones in a years time. I cried, alot... just couldnt hold it in if I tried.

    • I have discovered that on some level you never really stop grieving you just learn how to manage it better. It is important to go through the grief process. It is also important to seek help if and when you need it. I went through a group process, we meet once a week, for group then daily we engaged in exercise, once per week, a creative project and some form to touch therapy such as rekki, hot stones, etc... it really helped At the same time I went through some spiritual direction

    • It is so strange I look at my answer from 29 days ago. I did not know that I would be going through the process again. Robert died on December 8. But my answer above is still the same.

    • i have not lost my husband however we are so apart he spends long periods of time by himself he chooses to.  he does not want to be disturb.  this to me feels like a great loss, its like he is not in my life.....i just carry on each day like a single woman.  its a weird feeling.  i say i am married to those who ask, but i can honestly say i feel very much like a single woman
