Hi, Nicole, I totally agree with your recommendation to reach out to others, many of whom are struggling with their own situation.  This type of interaction started several weeks after my husband died, pretty much by accident when a stranger was so kind to me at a critical time.  Then I realized the power of true compassion and sharing and was able to offer him some emotional support as well.  It is healthy to do this and has helped me with healing and forgiveness as well as closure on pressing issues.  The power of communication and compassion is AWESOME.  That is why the Grief Forum has become a second home to me.  Thanks everyone.  Sue

Just a note to let you know that I am dealing with my loss on a daily basis and there are moments that the recent loss is overwhelming. I am keeping busy with day to day things and my hobbies. My daughters and I talk about the happenings and deal with them from time to time but remember the good times over the bad times which brings comfort to us..Gone but not forgotten is so true...

I know I will make it through the day. I just don't know what the day will look like. What part of the day will be ok? When will I choke up when trying to talk? When will the tears start flowing? This grief is an uncontrollable beast.
