Unhappy New Feelings - April 7th 2010, 04:19 AM

I'm starting to feel like time isn't going to heal me. Dena passed away two months ago, but it still feels like it happened this morning. I had completely forgotten about a blog that she had until yesterday. I was looking at her facebook page when I noticed a link. I clicked on it and imediatly began reading. The last post was posted my her husband. It was something that Dena had typed for him for after she passed away. He posted it for her and it was one of the saddest/comforting things I had ever read. The post right below that one was a post that Robert, Dena's husband, wrote about how he has been feeling. It is in the veiwpoint of their dog, but that is just how Dena made the blog to begin with. It brakes my heart to read it, but I can't help it. After reading all of that it really makes me want to go visit Robert and just sit and cry with him. He is like the dad I wish I had. We always stick by each others side, and I feel like I'm leaving him in the dirt when he needs me the most. I haven't talked to him since the funeral. I have been too busy worrying about myself that I didn't even think to call him. If I'm having this hard of a time, I can't even imagine what it's like for him right now. My grandpa said he would buy me a plane ticket if I wanted to go to Boston and visit him. I'm leaving for Boston on Thursday.

Hey Sydney,

I am really sorry to hear about your loss. It sounds like things are really difficult for you. Sometimes when you lose someone it takes a while to sink in. You might denie it has happened and refuse to accept it. I know someone that lost their dad a few days ago. She has not appeared upset or anything about it yet and I really don't think it has sunk in yet because when it does I know it will rip her apart.

Robert, Dena's husband sounds like a supportive person. I really think you should definitely talk to him about how you feel. It might help you not to feel as alone with your feelings knowing that someone else may be feeling similar. Also it is good to talk about how you feel rather than hold it in, because that will only make you feel worse.

I am always here if you want to chat. Stay strong.

Im sorry for you loss. Go talk with Robert, tell him how you feel and dont hold back. Talking is a very good thing. Remember, a persons passing wont just go away, the feelings wont just disappear. I lost a friend of mine in grade 4, he was 9 years old. 15 years ago and I still think of him with a heavy heart. Time doesnt heal the pain, but it does give you time to learn to live through it and you'll notice over the years that it has gotten a bit easier to cope with. I lost the people who raised me from 3 weeks old in 2006, I thought Id never smile again. My heart breaks, but as sad as I am, I know Im not in that very dark place I was when it first happened.
Stay strong, we're here for you.
