Dear Kate,
thank you for your response and I see that so many are reaching out through their pain to yours …..and as dear Moon says we just know others are sitting beside us here….sometimes/most of the time truthfully I’m so damn depleted I can’t even string my thoughts together enough to come on here and respond so please understand (I know you do) if it takes me a while, actually I’d been writing over a few days and then lost it all somehow, so had to try and remember!!
Thank you so much for asking about connecting, I have filled out the form so I suppose wait and see…..hopefully we can talk soon…
A week of no washing!! Try my house not cleaned at all since, I just go outside and weed then I don’t have to feel guilty and mad….that’s how it is when you’ve NO family that cares…
I’m so sad that so many of us here have similar situations when it comes to lack of family support, it just makes it impossible to function as you can just feel so invisible and especially your beloved person that everyone has forgotten , I find that really disturbing, I just feel like screaming it’s an outrage….
I know what you mean ,as many here will also say ,we don’t have anything to give and that’s okay because it’s honest, I was also thinking as I read the saddest tales here, seems to me that we have been the givers forever and now we need help!!HELP!! I understand asking makes us feel tragic and it’s true, I am so tired of what I feel is badgering people for attention and care, or just some thoughtful kind word, which may just pick me up in that moment, just makes me feel more hopeless than I already am…..and then I see all these bereft people here giving to each other , the kind words , and encouragement ,we so need to try to trust again ( trust shattered by grief then by other people who just don’t understand….I actually read somewhere that this is a second grief (it’s a thing), which only redoubles our pain….
Our horrific pain, is the deepest love and I’m finding it impossible to bare.
So for today much kindness and care to you all
