Question I thought it was supposed to get easier as time went by

It's harder in a sense because things start to sink in and you realize that you have to live for yourself and your family. I wrote here awhile ago about losing my beloved father in April. I miss him even more now.

Why don't people want us to talk about it? Will we be able to smile and laugh deep within our hearts? Will we be able to talk about our loved ones without getting choked up? Those are just some questions that go through my mind. I'm sure a lot of you feel the same way at times.

Re: I thought it was supposed to get easier as time went by

If you want to talk about it--and I know that has helped me since my dad's death in September--you have to search out people who are willing to listen. Sometimes our own family members are wrapped up in their own grief, or friends are so involved with their own busy lives that they say "Oh, how are you?" but then hardly seem to hear the response.

This board is a great place to vent, or you could consider a grief support group, or grief counseling. I attend weekly sessions with a grief counselor, but my mother attends a support group with about 15 recently bereaved members, and after the first session she said, "It was great--everyone there understood me." She said it has really helped her not to feel so alone.
