    My younger sister

    Hey... I was searching for someone that went through something as I did... And found you. Same as you, I would never seek help online, I am ussualy the person that never even comments on anything online, but I do not have any choice anymore as sometimes I feel like going crazy. My younger sister aged 27 died in a car accident on 28th of July 2020. My youngest sister aged 21 was in the car as well but luckily she survived. My family suffered great trauma... Well we still are. I feel everything the same as you do. The difference is that my sister did not have any children left
  3. I lost my best friend/ significant other to Covid early in the morning on December 23, 2020. He was 74 years old and had pre-existing conditions. He was very careful to follow the CDC guidelines. He told me that if he got COVID, he knew it would kill him. And it did. His son exposed him, he took my friend out to a restaurant to eat for Thanksgiving. He wouldn’t wear a mask around his father knowing the danger, especially since his wife works at a bar. He would go to the bar to see her and not wear a mask. Totally reckless behavior. And I am angry. This person knew better, his brother told him
  4. Hi everyone, We are wondering what social media platforms you all use for grieving matters besides Facebook? Could you let us know? Just type it in here this thread or directly put a link in to the places you visit. We are interested in expanding our presence to other social media platforms to reach more grieving people. Thank you! Kelly & Elyse
  5. It's a shame that Covid-19 did all of that to you. The loss of a loved one is difficult no matter the age. I lost my beloved wife of 42 years on New Years Eve 2019. She had been in Hospice Care and slept in a hospital bed next to me. We celebrated our Anniversary on December 24 and fortunately she was lucid at the time. She suffered a stroke 3 days later and was gone b New Years Eve. I failed to seek grief counseling offered by Hospice thinking that I was able to cope with the loss. I was doing all right until the Covid-19 problem came about and totally changed my life. I remain far too

    Who am I now

    I am so lost, it’s been six months since I lost my husband of 33 years to cancer. Yet it feels like it just happened yesterday, while he had terminal cancer, his passing was sudden, the cancer had spread its way to his main artery, and on June 1st at 130 it burst , and he bled to death, in our room, in his favorite chair with only myself there. Just like that he was gone. Now six months later I am still wandering around wondering where and how do I go on from here , and still I will randomly begin to cry at anytime, just yesterday I was cleaning our bathroom and I was just crying uncontrollabl
  7. My boyfriend (soon to be fiance) died last month of an accidental overdose. I have been having a hard time coming to terms with it all and I feel like I am going crazy because I can't stop thinking about him. We were in an argument at the time of his passing so he was at his mom's house a few days (we have lived together for the past 4 years). His mom found him on the morning of 11/9/2020 dead. I feel horrible because he wanted to come back home that night and I wouldn't let him yet because I was still upset. If I just let him come back home none of this would have happened - even if something

  9. I hate that the pain is rooted so deeply within you, consuming everything about you until their is nothing left, but the pain of loss. I just lost the man who meant the world to me, my father, to Covid in the ICU. I looked up to him my whole life and he was the person I related to the most. I'm sorry you never got to speak with him at the end and hear what he was yearning to say. I'm sorry that the selfish and the stupid are the reason you and I and so many others are left with searching desperately for answers. We are left with frantically trying to ingrain every memory we have of them b
  10. he wasn't supposed to die-no underlying health conditions, only 60, fit as a fiddle. We all knew if we got Covid, I would probably die with auto-immune disorder, heart and blood pressure issues. But we all got Covid, but he never left the hospital-fought Covid for 6 weeks and then lost the fight. I watched him die in front of me, helpless to do anything-the last breath etched in my mind forever. The 6 wk hospital fight and not being able to see him until the last 5 days, he was a tiny bit awake but kept sedated as to not pull out the ventilator. He was never able to say goodbye, or talk-just o
  11. On June 28, 2020, I lost my 37 year old sister to a terrible car accident. Leaving behind my amazing niece and nephew as her legacy for us to hold dear. The absolute pain and acceptance of this has been practically impossible for me. The ball in my throat, heaviness in my heart and whole in my soul feels forever stuck. I don't know if this goes away or just remains for you to have to learn to just live with. I can't seem to move much past the acceptance stage. It just seems I'm stuck in that week, on that day. But at the same time it is like it's been forever. Life has to go on I know

    Broken Heart

    I am so incredibly sorry for your loss.
  13. After about 10 years of Doctors, Pain, and suffering my wife and best friend for 44 years has passed on. I can't describe the pain I feel just seeing every day items we shared together. Im told time heals but the sorrow I feel in my heart will last forever. I miss everything about her.
  14. Hi, I am currently going through an unimaginable nightmare. My only son who was 37 years old and about to marry a girl he loved, took his own life on 27 9 20. He left her a note saying 'I love you', before leaving the house and going to some local woods to hang himself while she was at work. Due to Covid we hadn't seen him for a while, and this may have added to his anxiety.

    Losing my son

    I would love to talk. I could always use someone who knows what I’m going through and we could help each other

    Losing my son

    I am so very very sorry to hear about the loss of your precious son. I just lost my daughter who was 39 years old on August 23 of this year to a heroin overdose. It is the worst pain a parent will ever have to deal with in their life. I am like you I think I am doing good and then all of a sudden maybe I hear a certain song or smell some thing that reminds me of her and I break down. I know it is going to take a long time to heal from this. My husband and I have her six-year-old daughter to raise. As she lost her father to an overdose when she was only six months old. Thank God this poor innoc

    Covid is awful

    My dad died August 8th from acute respiratory distress caused by covid. I am not coping well. I live 10 hours away from my mom and siblings. I have lived in FL for 22 years after getting married. We are planning to move closer next year after my son graduates from high school. Now my dad isn't going to be there and I feel so guilty for moving away all those years ago. I flew up and was able to say goodbye to him because he opened his eyes to look at me while squeezing my hand. I am so angry at my husband all the time. I can't sleep, eat, and am bothered by everything. It's awful!

    Losing my son

    I lost my son, Tyler on August 2nd, 2020. He had just been released from jail on Friday, July 31st. We spent the day together and I dropped him off at a hotel that he wanted to go to because it was on the bus line as he didn’t have a license. I asked him if he wanted to stay with us and he said no because he had been surrounded by people for the past 6 months and wanted some down time. We got the call that Sunday. He had completed rehab at a wonderful place in Warren, Ohio and was living in a sober house. Two days after he moved in, he went on a job interview and the kid he was with got

    Mom gone

    My mother did May 16, 2020 of COVID-19. I am so angry at this virus and so sad it took my beautiful mother away. My grief goes on to the point I just don't know how to live without her.
  20. Hello everyone. I just joined this site to get some help with the sudden loss of my dad a month ago. I'm not sure how to navigate this circle - for example, how do we start conversations? Do we create a topic? Or just reach out to people individually? I'm sorry for my ignorance and appreciate any feedback. Thank you.
  21. In November 2019 my father called me from his home in North Carolina. I lived about 5 hours away in South Carolina and informed me he was sick and not feeling well, As normal as it seemed I would jump in my car and rush to be with him. He had been having diarrhea for several weeks and they could not figure out why. It was not an infection of the bowels, not his gall bladders, not really sure what it could be, The next step was to run test to see if he had ulcers in is stomach. So again we waited for that appointment. My dad had already been diagnosed with melanoma skin cancer and lymphoma canc

    tell your favorite holiday memory with your person

    We were living in California. Our little dog was wearing a onesie that was red and had "waiting for santa" on the butt. She had a lot of presents and would take each one upstairs to the master bedroom one by one. We were listening to christmas music and near the tree we got with all my old ornaments. I had cooked a prime rib and my love said to me that he never understood why people liked it until I cooked it for him. That became our tradition - prime rib for christmas. He was always so generous but this memory holds special meaning to me because i got to return some generosity and give him s

    HeartBroken Mom

    I am so sorry for your loss. I lost my daughter July 10, 2020 and we will lay her to rest this coming Saturday. I understand your pain as I also feel I will never recover from this heartbreak. I will pray for your peace and comfort and I battle my own grief.
