Dear Brother, Father and Mother

by Rich
(Houston, Texas)

A little over 2 years ago I lost my brother to cancer. A little over a year ago my father passed on, which hurt us all but especially my mother. She grieved him for 13 months and then the emotional toll brought her down and she passed away in May of this year. All three of them were very dear to me. I have not been grieving very well. I have a very high pressure job, and combined with a jerk boss and the deaths of my loved ones, the pressure has just been unbearable. I am so happy to have finally found this website and I will be back.

I feel your pain....
by: MaryE (a crying mother)

Hello, I too loss my son, Vale is was 29. I went through so many emotions and some days I was lost.
I prayed about it and prayed more...I can say so many things but its hard to do I know this.
Keep Postive and maybe look elsewhere for better employment...I one time had a very BAD BOSS and hate it. Now, I just love my job and so grateful for it and I feel very bless too.

Try to remember the wonderful and positive things that your family did while they were on this earth and keep living and one day you will meet them again in heaven....I hope this helps, God Bless and stay strong for them....Mary E

WHAT IS GRIEVING WELL? There is no right or wrong way to grieve love.We all at this site grieve in our own way for however long it takes.Like you I had multiple deaths in a short time. My father died Dec 2009.May of 2010,my best friend of 28 years died.In June 2010,my mother gave up and died.In May 2011,my husband died.We had been married 33 yrs and my parents 64 yrs. I look at couples nowdays and wonder if they tell each other they love each other often and how short their time is. I never expected to be a widow before I reached retirement age.My faith in GOD,and that I don't want my children to go through what I did is what keeps me going.I have begun to get rid of some of the stressors in my life for my own sanity. I went ahead and retired from my job as a nurse in a nursing home.Not a bad job just stressful. I have begun to go through things and try to make the job for my children easier when my time comes.It keeps me occupied part of the time.A lot of the time I cry and sometimes I don't even want to get out of bed.ONE THING---Please don't do what I did and cry so much and so hard that I gave myself severe bronchitis(raw inflamed lungs). I am still recovering.You don't need that stress as well.I have great faith that one day I will see my love again.We will see each other and run into each others arms and hold each other again.There are a lot of poems on the poetry part of this site that help you know that you are not alone.I am beginning therapy in a couple of weeks. This may not be for you but I have to do this for me to see if it does help.GOD bless you and give you strength
