    The Lonely Burden of Not Dumping In.

    Hello Everyone: This is how I basically handle most crisis in my life: How not to say the wrong thing - latimes The gist is, draw a small circle and write the person at the center of the current crisis in the center ring, then draw another ring and write the names of the people most affected...

    Rebuilding

    This will probably be my last post on the forum. At the time of Eileen's funeral I weighed 122 lbs, I am now at 134 lbs. I'm not sure if it is just my nature or my strong belief in God, but even before the funeral, I felt that God did not want me to waste the rest of my life in grief. I made...

    Depressed

    Having a difficult day. More progression and the grief that goes with every loss is hard to deal with. I know I m depressed but I m still handling everything. My pals depends on me and I want to be strong for him, and be the caregiver he deserves. I m frightened and overwhelmed, it is all...

    A year has past...

    This morning at 4:11 was one year since the love of my life became free of his hell. Or should I say our hell... I don't even know what to think about that. The hell we went through, is more than I can believe actually. Honestly, how do any of us make it through that? At 4:11, another kind of...

    Grief/ Crying/ Can't Breathe

    Sadly, my sister passed away last week, and the family is gutted. She was a bright light, and we miss her terribly. My 87 year old Mum is grieving hard. Yesterday she was crying with full abandon, and suddenly felt she couldn't breathe. I've read here before that PALS can have spasms, and...

    3 months later

    First, when Eileen was on hospice, I couldn't share all the details of her passing, even now some of it is more than I can talk about on the forum. When the time came, with two pastors, family and friends in the room, I couldn't let a stranger make the final step. So, I turned off the Trilogy...

    Drop foot query

    Dear All As some of you know, I lost my Dad to ALS four years ago in August 2014 and have struggled with both grief and health anxiety as a result. The health anxiety was terrible after my Dad passed, and it manifested itself in lots of "twitching" which was diagnosed as BFS from...

    International Division of Grief

    The good memories of my boyfriend are something I cherish, his weaknesses and quirks are something to chuckle about with friends. I'm a happy and pretty much trigger-free widow. Except when one of our PALS here takes leave. That always pulls the rug from under me and I howl like a hound. I...

    Grief

    I have to say, grief is the strangest thing I have had to deal with thus far... Cliff has been gone now for almost 9 months. In the beginning, I felt relief. I thought this was really strange, almost wrong... I felt guilty about that. Then I felt like I was doing really well, too well really...

    What now? part 2

    It's late, can't sleep. Just rambing, trying to put some thoughts in order. I can't believe it's been 4 months since Ferd died. It feels like I haven't seen him in forever, like it's been so much longer. And then I think it's only been 4 months, that's why this still feels so raw. I'm back at...
