Its only been 362 days. - April 16th 2010, 11:37 PM

My grandmother passed away almost a year ago.
April 19th 2009.
I dont want to live in a world where shes not.
I never though that I would have to say goodbye to someone I cared so much about.

Noone seems to know what to say to me, they are not able to grasp how important she was to me.

I was two days old when my grandmother took me home from the hospital and from that day on it was her, me and my grandpa until he passed away 13 years ago.

Has anyone been through losing someone close to them. Does it get easier? I cant seem to ever find help on this website but I dont wanna give up! I need help...

"My life is like a rolling river
So muddy and absurd
And although I might be mistaken
I know that Ill be heard
And I find the second I try to pull away
Im thrown back in line
All this time"

I lost my best friend who was like a sister to me when I was 16. It does get easier, but it takes a while. I'm sorry about your loss, she seemed like a great person. Keep strong.

You are braver than you believe,
stronger than you seem,
and smarter than you think.

Hey there,

I;m really sorry for your loss,losing your love ones is never easy and the grieving process is different for everyone. My only suggestion is that maybe you'll consider talking to someone who can help you get through this difficult time,perhaps talking to a counselor, or a therapist, if you're seeing one. It'll eventually get easier but it does take a while like I said it's different for everyone, so hang in there and stay strong. Take care babe

I hope you have the strength to start all over again.- F.Scott Fitzgerald

Hey Larri,

I am really sorry to hear about your loss. But I am glad you are not giving up because something will help you but you just have to keep trying to work out what that thing is that will help. I have lost my mum so I do know how difficult it is to lose someone close to you. But you have to think about what your grandmother would have wanted for you. She definitely wouldn't want you to give up; she would want you to live your life and be happy. I know how hard that can be though when you miss someone so much. But believe it or not it will get easier in time. I think you need to talk to someone about how you have been feeling because keeping it all to yourself won't help. You need to learn to deal with what has happened; this could be through talking to a counsellor or another professional. Then hopefully in time you will be able to remember the happy memories you spent with her and hold onto these when you are feeling sad.

If you ever want to chat then I am always here. Stay strong.
