  •  I read "A Gief Observed" (12+ / 0-)

    the month after my husband died, and I could not put it down. Thank you for sharing your grief with us, and I am so sorry you have to go through this. His words touched me deeply, and so accurately described the agony of it. The raw feeling of my heart being ripped from my chest and wondering if I was dying too.  Grief does feel like fear, and there is lots of it.....wondering how I am going to live the rest of my life without him, knowing nothing will ever be the same...I will never be the same. Grieving for him is like  "the sky covering over everything", So true. I feel so different from others who have not suffered this loss, so separate, still after 9 years.  I am stronger now, but there is a level of pain that exists inside that I am able to live with, and will never leave me. It's just the way it is. I wish you blessings and comfort.....take good care of yourself.

    Whatever doesn't kill you makes you stronger.

      it exactly!

      Thank you for telling me about you and your husband.  I can't tell you how much strength I take from your description of your experience.  It mirrors my own and helps me feel less alone.

      I am sorry you have to live on without your loved one; I am grateful for your presence in this journey.

      As of 02/22/2012 in Washington State pharmacists can exercise their "religious freedom" by denying women access to Plan B because the judge thinks there aren't any bigots in this state.

        me to know my journey through this loss can be a source of comfort to someone else. So thank you for telling me that. It is so wrong that anyone loses a loved one and then has the additional pain of feeling alone with it. You are not alone.  it just feels that way sometimes.  We help each other by sharing this experience along the way. I am grateful for this place to come on Monday nights. Thanks to all of you and I wish you peace and many blessings.

        Whatever doesn't kill you makes you stronger.
