I am here and still worried about my father. He is still grieving for George Jones. He spends hours listening to his music and searching the internet for video clips about him. My mother is concerned and has made a doctor's appointment for him because he now has these spells where his face turns really red and blotchy and he seems angry and irritated. Mom is thinking he has some kind of health issue going on.

I'm sorry to hear your day was so bad.

Hi Lorie, I am ok, thanks, its not really sunk in for me, that my brother Richard is gone, its been just over 2 weeks, and I dont think the grief has really hit me yet.  Its that grief cycle, denial is the first stage, to me in part of my mind, its only been 2 weeks since I spoke with him, he is just away, but I know the worst is yet to come, when it gets to a month or so, and you have not talked to them, reality starts to sink in and bite you, not looking forward to it at all.  How are you doing Lorie? my goodness you are a really strong lady, you have lost so much in the past year or so

 

Hugs

Hi Lori,

I am so sorry for all your pain, no wonder your depression is worse lately, mine has been too.  Sometimes you just want to pinch yourself, is this all real.  The one year anniversary of my friend Sue passing was last month, and of course my brother's passing just 6 weeks ago, has left such large voids in my life, big big holes, I am not sure what to do with, I cant fill them, no one will ever take their place, I have other people in my life but none as close as those two, I just feel empty inside right now.  I cant imagine your pain, you have lost so many in such a short time, I dont really have any advice on how to get threw this for you either, other than day by day, and try and take joy in the good things and good people you still have in your life.  Stay in touch please

HUGS

Kathy

I am one of the CL on iVillage who is helping fill in on this board, as your CL Promise is on leave at this time.

I have lost both of my parents while I was in my twenties, so loss is something I also struggle with.

Just wanted to say hi and let you all know that I am here as well as CL Lorie.  Please let me know if you all need anything.
