  5. Dear Nuvar, I know grief takes us all down this very black hole and its hard to see any light. We all have moments of hopelessness and despair. I know its not easy but you have to hang on and keep the hope. I know I tend to isolate myself as well, but you can do it. Keep reaching out and keep thinking about your beloved mum. How much she loved you and would want you to carry on. Talk to her as if she is in the room. Write to her. She is there in every cell of you. Thinking of you.

  9. Dear Kmc, I'm so sorry for your loss. Your feelings are totally understandable. Losing your beloved dad and processing your grief is not something that happens overnight. It can take years. The first year is so hard and but some have told me it could take 5 years or 10 years to come to terms with it. It is upsetting seeing a parent move on so easily and date another person. Your feelings of resentment are valid. I know we all cope differently, but do what you can to protect yourself.

  12. Dear JMEagle, I think so many of us feel as you do and wonder how on earth we are going to deal with it all? We make some progress with our grief and then it feels like we are pulled under again. There are so many triggers. You loved your dad and of course wanted justice for him. Its a bitter pill to know how unfair life is sometimes. And then to have the estrangement from your mother and but also seeing her with her health issues now. I too have had issues with my mom. If you can, maybe reach out and just see her. Try to have a few words and go from there. I know its hard given everything that has happened in the past. But I can only say from personal experience there is guilt either way and sometimes its unavoidable even when we think we've done all we can. Good of you to support your second mom. But it is hard to see a loved one in this condition. Always remember you can only do what you can. And if you need a break or some time away, it will be okay. Thinking of you. Please know we are all with you.
  13. Hi Margee, You can just put the mouse curser on the page. Then hold down the control button and use the plus or minus key beside the backspace button on the keyboard to increase the font. I hope this helps.
  14. Dear Nuvar, I'm terribly sorry for all the pain you are feeling. I know how much you love and miss your beloved mum. It's so hard. I know being a caregiver to your father every day is taking its toll. Try to understand your dad's brain is broken. I know its frustrating but he doesn't mean it. My father was grumpy too and it took its toll on me. Just know there are people who care about you. Moment by moment is all any of us handle. I truly hope you will consider reaching out and getting some help in the community or through church. Thinking of you.
  15. Dear Slickwid, I am so sorry for all the pain and sorrow you feel. Grief is a very difficult journey and I know a lot of things are easier said than done. Please don't be ashamed for thinking that sometimes you have to take break or to stop thinking of the person that passed. During my grief counselling I was told, it is only natural to focus on other parts of life. We all have thoughts that come and go and none of us want to think a fleeting thought could come true. They are only thoughts. I too had those moments. Its life and none of us can control it as much as we want to. Please know we are all with you and you are not alone. Sending my thoughts and prayers.
