      I know the loss of a loved one. I have lost both my parents. What helped me is remembering the good times. I still feel the loss sometimes but it helps. Hope this helps you

      I lost my dad in 2016. My mom went to a convention and I went home to keep him busy and he passed away suddenly just hours before she was to return. So she was not at the hospital when he died. She did not get to see him until the next day. I was plagued by visions of the hospital and did I do more for him at the hospital. For years I tortured myself with those thoughts until I went to get help and I went through a workbook called The Grief Recovery Handbook. Written by James and Friedman. It helped quite a bit and also seeing someone so I could just tell them my feelings and go through the book with them. I was in a much better place and when I lost my sister last year I was so much better prepared. I am so sorry for everyone’s loss. It is such a difficult time in one’s life. Time may help somewhat but their memories are God’s way of letting you remember just how much they were loved in this world!

      Grief takes time to heal from & healing isn’t linear. Grief is loves proof. Loosing both my parents at 57 & 66 was devastating. MS & Esophageal Cancer. I was 29 & 37 at the time. I haven’t healed from it, learning to live with it. My heart goes out to you all.

      I lost my father in 2013 I definitely feel your pain. What helped me is to try to stay busy and surround yourself with people who love and care about you. Never feel bad about reaching out when you need to talk about things.

      I am so sorry about your loss. I hope you have a great therapist or grieving support group. The most important thing I would say after those first mentioned is to keep getting out with people. Dinner, a walk with a neighbor, walk a dog, go to church. Just being with people is incredibly helpful! I believe in you!!
