Visiting Graves...relations.

I was going to entitle this as "visiting my dead relatives" but I thought twice. Trying to be respectful and all that.

Brother died a year ago aged 50. He probably lived 150 years worth into those 50 though. Didn't go to his funeral and only got news of his death via sms whilst I was in work.

He's got a plot close to my stepdad, gran and grandad and my favourite aunt.

I don't ...

My 21 year old son just took his own life two weeks ago, and I found him. I feel like I’ve been shattered into a million pieces and have so much guilt. And what if’s. And I’m mad at the mental health care system for failing him and his dad for being abusive. Anyone else experience loss of a child or loved one to suicide? I feel like I’ll never survive this.

Unresolved feelings & my sisters death

My sister died of cancer last year.
Prior to her death she & I had not talked for 2 yrs. I tried to talk to her but she was very stubborn about it, she even wrote me a letter saying she felt better without me in her life.
This fight was horrific for me because I had always been there for her when she had problems, I listened to her, I supported her, I was ...

My dad passed away

At the end of 2017 my dad was diagnosed with quite advanced bowel cancer and his prognosis wasn't great.
A week or two ago my dad got really ill with an infection but the doctors struggled to find the cause and control it. He deteriorated really quickly on Wednesday and we lost him.

We're all shocked and devastated. I'm struggling to get my head around it all. I just didn't expect it to happen so ...

Revisiting a painful loss constantly.

I am constantly revisiting a very painful moment in my life which happened many years ago but has completely consumed and destroyed me. Even now some six years later I think obsessively from the moment I wake up till I finally fall asleep re living the trauma over and over again. The pain is unbearable and has showed no sign of dissipating, in addition no one seems to understand what I am going through.

I ...

Grief but I can't cry

I recently lost a close friend and I miss him; it was 'complicated.' I developed serious feelings even though he is in a relationship with someone else. Its been hard to let go; i truly love him, though I shouldn't. Its also been hard because this loss is triggering other losses. I've never known anyone who died and thought I never had anything to grieve and yet i suffered a lot at a young age. ...

My brother

Yesterday would have been my younger brother's 35th birthday. He didn't even make it to 30, just like my older brother. He died in 2012 but I didn't find out about it until last year because he was adopted by another family when he was 5. I last saw him when he was 12 in 1995. He died of a drug overdose. I would have thought he would have stayed away from that stuff but ...

Grief at end of affair

I am married, but have had an online emotional/sexual relationship. It started as clean chat, but last week it got sexual. We agreed to end it (she is also married) but I feel awful and miss her so much. I am over 50 but this is my first breakup! Any help gratefully welcomed.
