  • I just tried to talk about it when I felt I needed to. I stayed around family I remembered the good times. I prayed(I'm not pushing you to that if you're against it). Good luck!

  • My husband of 7 years left when my son was 19 months old and never came's 18 years later now. And I was very close to my grandma and she passed cry. you talk to whomever you are comfortable talking to (I went to a therapist) and you eventually realize that although the loss still hurts YOU feel better.

  • You go through the levels of grief then celebrate the great parts of your life you had with the loved one. Then take it one day at a time.

  • Yes, I have had a major loss in my life, my son (stillbirth). My loss affects me every single day and I'm coming up on a yr, 1 month from today. I don't have much family support, but my DH and a friend who has gone thru the same thing has helped me tremendously. I often remind myself of all the things my son has taught me in his short life, it has definitely made me a more compassionate person and value life more. Talking about him helps, crying, and looking at his pics. Loss is never easy :(
