I really hear the pain and lonliness of grief that you are currently feeling, I want to start off by saying thank you. Thank you for being brave and sharing the loss of your wonderful mum and the ongoing cancer scare with your husband – it sounds incredibly difficult – I don’t know how you do it! Anticipatory grief is as diffuclt as grieiving someone who has past, and to be experiencing both of those at the same time sounds really isolating.
To write about your thoughts on grief is not whiney, not in the slightest – it is incredibly powerful. Again, a testament to your strength. I’m sorry it has taken us so long to get back to you.
I wonder how you are going since you wrote this post? Those things that used to bring us joy seem really difficult after loss. I would really love to hear anymore book recommendations – or even more Nina Simone songs! It sounds as if the creativity within you never really left!
Griefline has just announced that their support groups are open to everyone, no matter what state you live in – which I thought may be useful to you –
Again, Thank you for reaching out, keep writing or even try calling us 1300 845 745 between 6am-12am AEDT – we are listening!
