    I hope it does…I lost my dad October 20th 2010 and it has been so hard. He died from a massive stroke. I keep relieving those last 3 days from the call until he took his last breath. I miss him so much. I dont know bout you but I feel like my friends and coworkers dont understand me they keep telling me stop crying. I wish it was that easy. I feel like im going crazy at times..

    I lost my mum on 23 nov 2010. She was 95 and had been at home until her last four days in hospital. They say time is a healer but I am finding time is standing still right now. I used to see her every day and to go to her house at moment is very emotional. I think of her all the time and certain thoughts leave me in tears. I am feeling that I did all I could for her so that is helping me. Try to think how the person you have lost would want you to carry on with your life and that may help you somewhat.

    I lost my dad in 1998 in a plane wreck, everyday I think of him and talk out loud to him (I believe he hears me). Unfortunately, life doesn’t stop around you. It does not get better, but easier, you will focus on the positive and little things. Tears are ok too.

    My family and I are now struggling with the loss of our five year old son on Decemeber 2, 2010.

    Grief is unique to all, be selfish and do what you need to do to recover; whether going for a drive, reading, visiting others or etc. Don’t worry about others being judgemental either, it isn’t their loved one and their void in their heart.
