Kats and Dawgs

My best friend of almost 10 years was murdered by her boyfriend, she was only 24. The evidence against him isn't substantial enough without a confession from him to get a conviction. She was very loved among friends and family. Its been 2 weeks since it happened and I am finally letting myself feel... technically I'm depressed right now which I know is very normal. My friends and husband have been very supportive... without them I don't know if I could have made it this far. Her dog, which was there, really dislikes all men and is very aggressive and territorial at this time. She was like a sister to me, she helped me through many different stages of my life and I her. I miss her so much. When I found out I was at a loss for words... especially since her sister found out at the same time... I've been trying to be strong and tell others that its gonna be ok and that she is still with us not physically but spiritually, but when those words come my way they just seem to go in one ear and right out the other. I'm still living in the place that she stayed with me, which makes everything all that much harder, because everywhere I look she's there, cooking or on the computer, etc. I want her back, but I know reality is thats not going to happen. I see her before I fall asleep, and when I wake up, but I power through my day because there are things to do.

Who ever said life is fair? (My mom's quote that I hated)
by: Hope


I know how hard it is to live in the home where all our memories were created. I still live in the house that Paul and I got just before our 1st anniversary. Everywhere I looked another memory would assail my mind. For me things did get easier with time.

I know that with your early grief that is the last thing that you want to hear. You would just like to be able to get past it around it anyway away from grief. Grief is something that we need to face and let it take us where it will.

I do not know is Karma is a real thing. I like to think so that it will even our all the injustice that happens within our lifetime.

Until then...Please come here and lean on us. Our stories of grief may not be the same but the feelings that grief bring is startlingly familiar. The emotions that you will feel the ups and downs the anger,impatience are all part of grief. Knowing that you are not alone in your feelings helps immensely so come here often, talk to us and we will always be here to listen...
