3 days ago it was the day I reached the 5th month milestone. Grief is everything and more that we read about…

Funnily today at work a friend started to sing the song “in the arms of an angel”, this was the song I listened for more than 2 months after my dad passed away, then at home while I was fixing the floor another friend reminded me when he and I were preparing the living room for the xmas dinner and asked my dad to leave for a while and he got upset.

These memories should bring a smile to my face, but they still make me feel pain and sadness…

I have a hard time crying and expressing negative feelings, so I started to feel anxious and eventually ended up crying a bit.

It´s so hard to get these sudden reminders that you´ll never see someone you truly love ever again…

I feel your pain. I try very hard not to relate things, dates & places with my memories of mom since it brings so much pain, but I don’t always succeed. Like you said these little reminders of our irreparable loss are everywhere & they do get to you. It’s been 2 years but I still can’t go shopping without missing mom & shedding silent tears as my mind floods with memories of my trips with mom. This realization that I won’t ever see her again is so unbearably painful. But in time you learn to process this sudden wave of grief quickly & put it out of your mind. I still haven’t gotten to the point where I can remember her fondly. I still cry my eyes out when I look at old photo albums. I hope time will lessen this sadness. Hang in there.

And I lost my dad seven months from Oct. 4, so we lost ours around the same time. I had him for a while after other deaths in the family an hoped to have him much longer than I did. I was so sad to lose him. It seemed unreal that he was gone. Some household items, his clothes, the place where he worked, and his desk there made me emotional.
