Boy I guess should have thought twice about my post. I didn't mean to offend anybody. I will find another support group and keep in mind what I've learned here. I'm sorrry, I guess i was looking for some posts I could relate to and didn't find any at the time. There have been many times these posts helped me not feel alone and that I wasn't going crazy. Thank you.
There are many times when I can't relate to the posts either...but that's because grief is so personal and variable for each and every one of us on a monthly, weekly, sometimes even daily basis. As such, it's not always easy to find posts that resonate.
I remember joining back in late 2014, a few months after my mom's passing. Someone had written a tremendously moving post on her mom. I responded before creating my own threads a few months later on the first anniversary of my mom's stroke. It was around this time that I began a friendship with the woman who came up with the idea of the daily thread.
A group of us were on that thread just about every day as a means of relief because we had few around us physically who understood our pain.....we wound up sharing thoughts on everything, and not just our grief, although that, of course, was always there. I started a few threads myself on favorite childhood recollections and music, but few ever got involved. Oh well!
Nonetheless, I do think that the best way of addressing a problem is by starting a new thread. Someone does eventually respond.
I've looked at other grief forums myself, particularly when it looked as if this one might be shut down (my mistake)...and at that time, none looked as inviting. I'm wishing you the best of luck.
