The Story of My Losses

by Helen

It started on April 14th I lost the love of my life my husband of 27 and a half years. As I was going the grieving process I lost my mother on July 2nd, now tying to deal with one is bad enough now I have 2 to grieve how I kept my sanity I dont know. I had a lot of family support plus support of great friends somehow I was getting through this then on January 29th this year I lost my father so after taking 3 steps forward I feel like I have taken dozens backwards, Sitting at the funeral I just felt like running and running, thinking if I didnt stay it maybe wasnt true but I had to face facts and realize that now I had also lost my father my world was completed shattered. My kids went through this as well I couldnt understand the loss of one loved never mind 3 how can i explain this to them. But life goes on so does the grief and we are all doing the best we can. I miss them all so much and wish they were here now. I will love them forever xxx

To Heartfelt
by: Helen

Thank you for your kind thoughts and words. Yes I do find love and support in my kids and friends and yes I think that you are right writing my feelings down whether it be here or in a notebook it does help. So from someone who has lost her father to someone who has lost her father I thank-you for your support as we travel the journey that we must travel. So from one strong Aussie to another strong Aussie I send my love and that you are in my thoughts as you travel along your road to recovery and I wish you all the best for the future. And once again I thank-you.

Your loss ,has been enormous. my heart goes out to you. I lost my father 7 weeks ago and the pain was suffocating and overwhelming, that's when I found this site.
To loose 3 loved one within a year, would be a nightmare as you described. You are fortunate to have the love and support of your friends.,Take as much comfort as you can with them, however if it gets too much for your friends to listen to you, try and find someone whom you can talk to about your feelings, even if you write it in a note book, or come back here and share with others who have experienced a little of your lot in life.
It seem us Aussies are a strong lot, and your coping so far is proof of this and shows a lot of strength of character.
My heart felt wish, is for you is to find comfort in your children and friends. I know I can't take the pain away which are feeling right now, however my wish for you is not to be alone in this terrible grieving road we all must travel.
