  • I am very sorry for your losses!!! Grief is a very personal thing so there is no right or wrong way to handle what you are going through. I would suggest getting into some support groups and talking to whomever you can. Right now take it one moment at a time and work to one day at a time.

  • i don't think you will really get "over it" - but time will make things better - i would like to recommend a book written by a friend of mine called "The Last Days of Winter" - if you read chapters 7 and 8 first - put the book down for a few days - go back to chapters 7 and 8 - then proceed to read the book from front to back, it will benefit you the most - it is for all ages - i am currently reading it to help me prepare for the coming death of my daddy - the author's name is Jerry Griffin - he's a retired General and MD - his favorite career was putting the young kids back together in Viet Nam - you may order his book on - i am so sorry for your loss - there is no way that a parent should ever have to lose their children - i shall keep you in my heart and in my prayers.....

  • I of course do not know what you are going through, but I use to work with Hospice patients and I do know that with a horrific loss such as that one has to have a higher power to help you cope. Most people turn to their church for comfort. A relationship with God helps most. But you are not the same person now and you must keep living and you deserve to be happy in this life.

  • I am so sorry. I cannot ever imagine what one goes through with such a horrific loss. I think prayer always helps. I will be praying for you and your loss.

  • I don't know if you can ever get over that. I'm sorry. That's too sad. Having some source of Faith and that may help. Knowing someday when its your time you'll see them again. That's how I find a shimmer of comfort is knowing some day I'll see my lost loves one day.

  • I can't even imagine that!!! I have to agree with the previous posters, I don't think it ever is something that you "get over" and you seem to know that by your question. Ways of coping I would suggest is joining a support group or just talking as much as you need to to anyone that will listen, not being afraid to just cry it all out whenever necessary or take off of work, start a new hobby to keep yourself busy, if you have no one to talk to write it all out, do something, anything it get it all out and express exactly what your feeling!!!!
