OTHER GRIEVOUS LOSS

"Grief Is About More Than Just Death"


Other grievous loss...

We have had numerous emails from folks grieving the loss of important things in their lives, other than a loved one. Some examples: loss of job/identity, loss of home to tornado or fire, loss of children to divorce, loss of health/mobility and loss of financial security.

They have written in asking for a venue for them to vent about their own special type of bereavement; to contact others with similar losses; and perhaps to help other visitors by reaching out. This Other Grievous Loss  page gives them that outlet.

There is perhaps no other type of grief that is less understood by outsiders. Our hope is this page will help promote understanding of grief from other losses, and provide a unique type of comfort for those in this situation.

Please read the following email from Terri, and you will perhaps better understand "Other Grievous Losses":


"I suffered the grieving process, but did not lose a person. I was shocked to learn it was possible. I just wanted to ask that you have a "vent" page for people like me. I was in a car accident that caused many broken bones, many surgeries and many months of recovery.

I was so angry, depressed and stressed that I had to go to a councilor who explained it as the grieving process because I had lost my independence, freedom and my "not me" belief. I am still in recovery and would like to know I am not the only one and maybe help someone else to understand."


Have you lost something precious in your life like Terri did? Feel free to post here about any loss in your life that has left you grieving:

VERY IMPORTANT TIPS BEFORE YOU POST.

A MUST READ:

  1. When you post ANYTHING ON THIS WEBSITE, it becomes available via websearch (Googling) to the whole world!!! All they have to do is google a name and they will find your post. Do not use real names if you don't want to share your story with the world.
  2. Compose your post totally offline beforehand. Use a simple word processor like Notepad. Then copy and paste the whole thing into the Yourspace submission box. This prevents you losing all your hard work.
  3. All original posts (not comments) must consist of at least 2-3 paragraphs, or they will be immediately rejected. Search engines penalize websites for short pages.
  4. If you want to continue your story after submission, please add to the original post thru the comments box instead of making multiple submissions. This will move your post back up in the list.
  5.  We will immediately reject any submissions that are mean spirited, vulgar, use foul language or specify any nurse, doctor, hospital, hospice, or people accused of crimes, by name.
  6. Texting language is great! For cellphones. Please use full words and keep text language to a minimum.
  7. Your post does NOT automatically appear after you submit it, like some forums. There is a time lag of from 2-24 hours until you will see it online. Please don't submit it multiple times!

    *If you still don't see your story, try refreshing the cache on your computer. Here's how: Hold down the CTRL button while you hit the F5 button at the top. This updates the page for you.
  8. We hope you understand and help us out by following these simple rules.
