  1. What's new in this club
  2. Two years ago, I lost my mother to cancer. At the time I was only 11, and I had no idea how to deal with it. I wholed up in my room, piled my bed with stuffed animals, and just watched TV for hours. I did this for months, and I just sat there in this dark pit of despair. Now, I still don’t know how to deal with this. I have to go to school now (it was during the summer before), and I have to do all my work for school. Still, every chance I can I lock the door to my room, and pull out the stuffed animals. The pain comes in waves, washing over me over and over again, until I feel like it’s drown

    So sorry for your loss. I lost my husband of 43 years in October 2020. So heartbreaking. I feel lost without him.

    Hello, I feel your pain and grief. I just learned of this site and I wanted some answers about does it ever get better. My husband was violently murdered 1/14/21. This pain is indescribable,. I'm having his memorial service on 2/2/21, and I pray that I get through this. I can relate when you are just doing normal stuff, anything...and you burst out in tears. I'm angry, sad, hurt and confused. I came here to try to just find a connection because I feel nobody else understands. My days have been a blur, sure I have work (working from home), but that is a minimal distraction when everything remin

    My brother

    Dear,I am so sorry to hear this. I lost my sister aged 27 in a car accident on 28th July 2020. My family went through hell as well. I have to say that time will bring some relief... But it would be a lie if I say it will be a big relief.. It is truly such a hard thing to go through. I had the same feelings with God and faith... And I questioned everything. I still do. I live day by day slowly gathering strength to see some future. My parents... Damn... Ifeel so bad for them. I am not a parent yet but I know that theirs love for a child is greatest. I had another, youngest sister in

    My brother

    My brother unexpectedly passed away on 1/2/21. He had a heart attack while driving and hit another car head on. This has been very very very hard for me and my family. He was only 33 yrs old. I am mad at God because he took my brother from me. I do not understand why. It's very hard watching my parent's go through this. It's depressing and my emotions are everywhere.
  10. My precious brother, JMD (age 43) died two days before Christmas of a sudden heart attack. I live in Texas. Thankfully, we drove to AZ (to avoid planes), to see my brother and my parents. He was whistling the night before as he cooked red chile enchiladas for us. It was a perfect day. We listened to Bocelli's new Christmas album in anticipation of Christmas. I was so excited because I had customized a pair of vans for him. He loved vans, and this was the first pair I customized, and he never even saw them! The next morning, I got a call from my Dad that my brother collapsed and was not

    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
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. 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
  16. 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

  18. 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
  19. 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
  20. 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.
  22. 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.
  23. 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
