Don't know how to handle the fact the my daughter is dying. She is a cancer patient whose medical issues started almost 24 years ago... She is paralyzed from her waist down. She's been in the hospital for 3 months and don't know when she'll be getting out. Last week, we found out that there is a 25% increase in one of her tumors since last August. She can't start chemotherapy again until incisions on her back heal - which has been an issue since last August. She doesn't have a pain-free day EVER. I feel like I know the grim reaper intimately. I literally hate the general population because it seems everyone has some sort of excuse for any and every wrong doing that effects them either directly or indirectly. The only thing my daughter ever did was work, pay taxes, take care of her world and her animals, and help other people. Now - she will be leaving...

I can't stop thinking about my ex-friend. I don't want to see a doctor, and my mom thinks I'm making up storyies about my mild depression and PTSD. She can't understand it because about 95% plus of the emotions are thoughts, not crying. I can't take pills by mouth, only patch. I don't know if my doctor would be much help.

My 70-yr old, 33-yr-recovered mom died suddenly in 2004 after a few yrs reconciliation.
My 27-yr old son was killed in an accident in 2007.
My husband of 35 yrs passed in 2010 after a 7 yr illness.
I am blessed with 4 living children and 6 grandchildren.
I am immersed in these blessings, tho I also have missing parts that cannot be filled.

About a week after taking my youngest off to college, I have just learned that my father has a very serious and aggressive cancer. I have been a single parent for 14 years. I live 5 hours away from my family. I am grieving while trying to adjust to the empty nest, and now am facing the reality that I may soon have to say goodbye to my precious father. I know that I have to find a way to keep going and functioning, but I just want to lay down and sleep. I am so overwhelmed with loss and the fear of loss. It just feels like too much at one time. I don't know how to cope with all I am feeling right now.

I lost my precious wife last month and I still am wandering around life in a fog. She had a severe stroke four years ago, tied to her cirrhosis of the liver (alcohol). I had taken care of her 24 hours a day from that time. I know that I am new to the grief process and look forward to the day when I can finally admit that has gone to be with angels. We had nine wonderful years together and we were truly one, together.

I'm gad there is a forum for this grief.

I lost my daughter in 1995 to a single car accident. I know that's long ago but still I grieve for her .. she was just 28 years old and we had been at odds with each other when she died .. I cant get past it. My pdoc says I've gotten used to feeling this way and he is probably right but I want to move on and feel stuck.

Wow, don't know where to begin... In 1969 my sister and I lost our mom at a very young age. At that time, everyone had respect and trusted everyone. There was nothing to be afraid of until my mom was killed by a friend of hers. I can't tell you that our life's hasn't been the same. She didn't die of natural causes so it blew the whole town upside down and ruin three of my families apart. My sister been married for along time but she takes pills and drinks, she can't cry so I make that part up for the both of us. I can't until this day can not get over this. Believe me I want to, my mom, aunt, uncles and my son, all lost. I had more than my share. My best friend which was a cat died last year, the day after Christmas. I took it very hard. I don't know what to do anymore. My husband says that's life, his mom died too but hit's not the same he doesn't know what it's like seeing your mom lying down

"The Grief Recovery Handbook" is really very informative and helpful for moving beyond death divorce, and other losses.

Thanks @John For sharing with us.

i have dealt with three suicides so far in my life and a friend's boyfriend just took his life recently too.

it is one of the hardest things to deal with. it has been the hardest in my life. as a person with a diagnosis, my feelings around it are more confusing and deeper than an average person's would be, i think.

not sure, but the guilt has been almost ever-present for years now.

thank you for this post, i will check out the link.
