Blindsided

I cannot believe how much this hurts.

It hits out of the blue at times, when you think you are ok, managing.

I'm just so sorry.

I hope you can stay strong enough, and come through.

Isn't it pretty to think so said...

*hugs*

Grief sneaks up on you and bites you in the face when you least expect it.

I think I might be past the hurt stage. I mean, of course it hurts, but, I feel more empty, more unfulfilled, like something's missing. And that is what hurts for me.

Thinking of you, STE.

I'm sorry. It hits out of the blue. You have several ok days, and then whammo, a bad day comes, and they are almost worse because of the good days.

Sending hugs. It will get easier, if not better. At least, that's what I tell myself.

Damn drive-by's always leave me gasping for air, too.

Hang in there.

i think there is something especially difficult about other people's ability to take things for granted.

i try to remember something my therapist once said: it's not the intensity of the feeling of grief that changes over time, it's the length of time those feelings leave you flattened.

here's hoping you're finding this to be maybe a little bit true.

Mac trucks. They always do the most damage.

I am so sorry, sweet girl. I wish this was easier for you---for all of us....

It SUCKS, big time. It sucks ass. No two ways about it.
I am so sorry, just so sorry.
I wish there was something more to say but I know there isn't. Just remember, we are all in this with you, always.
xxoo

I think it is how much it knocks us that is the most shocking. It is truly horrible and I wish I had words to help you through this. I don't. Just know we understand. You'll come through this but it hurts. Thinking of you.
