Easing pain of others' feeling of grief

Posted by Susan Williams on July 15, 2015 at 7:58am 1 Comment

It has been over 4 years since I lost my son, but I know helping others eases my pain and gives me the chance to turn my grief into something good.

Wanted: 1 human allotment of joy, gone missing about 10 months ago, deeply missed.  Glimpsed briefly on occasion but darted away again.  If seen, grab it and hold on tightly. 

Joy.  What does it mean?  How do we find it and better question, how to we hang on to it?  A couple of months back, some of my family and I were on a shuttle bus, being transported like cattle from one end to the other of a resort along with a couple of other families.  Most of the riders were lost in their own…

Woman 1, World Zip

Posted by Brenda Hoskins on May 23, 2015 at 6:30am 0 Comments

Ever try to zip up a back zipper?  It’s almost impossible.  I mean, I’m sure there is a way to accomplish that but hell if I can figure it out  And now I have this itch in the middle of my back that I cannot reach. For weeks. It’s so annoying.  I’ve stretched and tried to reach it without success.  I’ve used a brush, a kitchen utensil (for those of you who have eaten in my house, don’t worry-the dishwasher has a sanitizer setting), and even rubbed up against a door frame. Like a bear…

Seasons

This is a difficult time of year; late winter, very early spring when everything is dry and brown.  I’ve never liked it.  I find my eyes scouring the countryside, trees, and ditches, thirsty for a glimpse of green with a kind of desperation.  There is a deep seated need to feel refreshed and reborn.  To see hope manifest.  And the thing is, if you don’t watch carefully, you’ll miss it.  It seems like suddenly, the grass is green, flowers are starting to come up, and the trees are misted with…

Delayed Grief?

Hello, I'm new to this site. My mother died when i was 10 of cancer. I never really grieved at that time. My grandmother died last week and a few days later my ex husband almost died, my son is about the same age I was. During times like this I seem to get taken back to that feeling of having all security ripped out from under me and suffer terrible anxiety. Anyone else go through this? It's been 24 years since my mother's death and I'm thinking about finally going to grief counseling.
