Red face I just want you all to know, - December 13th 2009, 01:19 AM

that it DOES get easier.
I read a lot of you guys are asking that, and it does.
Little by little, day by day.

It's been 145 days since my friend passed away.
She was an extremely special person. And I could go on about her for pages, but that's not the point.

I just want to tell you all don't beat yourself up.
Take as much time as you need to grieve, there isn't a time limit on grieving.
It all gets better and easier, a little bit of a time.
Hang in there.

It does get better, keep up your hope. I can't believe how fast time goes by in Feb. it's going to be 5 years since my friend passed away and at first I couldn't think beyond it but now I look back and smile at the good times we had together and I'm happy for the times and treasure them.
Nice post Sarah.

Everyone is born right-handed. Only the greatest overcome it.

I love this post. It's so true! It does get easier with time, sometimes sooner than others and sometimes longer. Don't rush the grief cycle.

There is always hope. PM me anytime.
