Upwards at last

by Gary

I lost my mom in May 2011. The pain was unbelieveable. I talked to anybody who would listen. My life was upside down and I felt life would never be good again. I tried medication but that didn't help. I read on grief and eventually went to a psychologist. It took a year of suffering but I'm on the road to happiness once again. I found grief is something that you owe to yourself and your loved one. It's almost a form of remembrance that comes out as pain. I thought many times how I must have loved my mom so much that it caused pain not ever seeing her again. You don't ever forget her you just learn to cope.

Good luck to all! It will get better!

dont forget that its not the end
by: Jean

Just dont forget that it's not the last time any of us will ever see the people who we love and lost. I lost my dad on 1-8-97, my mom on 4-15-11, and my 48 year old sister on 1-13-12. I miss them all very much. The only thing that makes me feel better is that I believe in God and my faith tells me that I will see them again someday. I have kids so hopefully not really soon but I know I will see them someday and everyone here will see all of their loved ones too.

One year later, the pain is still there
by: Kathy P

Gary, I understand your suffering, I lost my mom on July 11, 2011, and it was like the bottom dropped out of my world. I have gone to therapy, still going, talked to friends, etc. but nearly a year later, I still cry almost every day. The memories come up of the happy times we had together, I was her caregiver for many years. I can't control the tears when they come. I know it will lessen eventually, but still so hard. Thanks for your message of hope.

Dear Gary
Thank you for your post and the encouragement you have given to everyone on this website grieving at the moment for the loss of their loved one.
I am happy for you finding a way through your grief and for being mature. Taking responsibility for yourself and seeing a psychologist. It worked for me and It works for you. IT WORKS EVERYONE. When the pain of grief is so bad we can't go on anymore in life we have to do something about it for ourselves. Grief is something we have to experience in order to be healed. It is painfull. But we survive to tell the story. Best wishes and every success in Life.
Thank you again for sharing.
