I'm glad you reached out to us on the boards. Grieving is painful and takes a good bit of time to come thru it. I hope you have one or two folks you can reach out to. It's normal to have good days and then slip back and have awful days. Take extra good care of yourself.

I am sorry about your grieving but please know that God does not give us any more than we can handle. My heart goes out to you. May you smile soon. God Bless you .
Grief has been a major part of my life as well. It has helped me have more compassion on others. I believe also in the Word of God which says that "weeping endures for a night, but joy comes in the morning" and again, "He counts my tears and puts them in His bottle" and again " we don't sorrow as those who have no hope". Jesus is "a man of suffering and acquainted with grief" and He also "is anointed with joy above His fellows". There is a time for everything. We comfort one another with the comfort with which we are comforted. Our sufferings give us empathy for one another and the love of Christ allows us to bear up with one another's burdens. May God be with you in all things.
If ever there was a time for a little deeper understanding, this would be it. It's difficult to offer support and understanding if what's being grieved isn't a little clearer. No crazy details necessary. Is it a loved one, a pet, an old habit, an old food, something that has been misplaced. There are so many members you are bound to find someone to offer support and understanding. Be willing to share yourself to a guarded degree. I hope you find solace in your grief and that you will soon find sunshine again.
I'm grieving too. The loss of a friend who was like a sister to me. My heart goes out to you but I know that it does not have to be a permanent part of your life. Her memories are always there with me.

My sympathy for whatever it is that is causing you grieving. Time heals.
