this seems like a great outlet for many, so I thought I'd try it out. I've never been one for forums of any kind, but I'm hoping this will be therapeutic. After reading many of the postings, I realize how fortunate I am to not have suffered losses like some here have, such as children and spouses. Although my grief feels pretty deep, you expect at some point to grieve for a parent. I'll look forward to more interaction here.

RE: new member, first posting

Crissy, welcome to the forum. I too, am grieving for a parent. Grief for a parent, I think, is one of the worst.
Gosh, we had them around for all of our lives and now they are gone from our sight. It's not one that we can shake off easily.
Did you lose your mom or dad? I'm so very sorry.
I just lost Mom on June 3. She had been sick with Alzheimer's and it was a gradual loss over a period of time since Mom was not completely Mom for quite some time.
Thankfully, she never forgot those who were closest to her and she never got bedridden.
I miss her a lot, but I know that I will see she and my baby girl (19) again.
Feel free to tell us all about your loss. Believe me, any feelings that you have are not foreign to us.
