 my friend from highschool just had a loss and while i'm fighting back tears for her and for me as i typed my story to her, i'm glad that i could help her. i feel like my loss has meaning every time i reach out and support someone else going through it. of course i never want a friend or even stranger to experience this, but it is great when i can help.

Sometimes it is nice to be able to help someone so they know they aren't alone.

Yes definitely! I feel that way about this site too. Even though my own loss has been painful, it feels good to come on here and give words of support or encouragement to other people in similiar situations!

I agree with the other two ladies even though sharing the story of our loss it's nice to no that we're helping someone by doing it by letting them know we've been there and know how heartbreaking it can be.

Yes, good for you! The silence is what screams the loudest... I am glad you can offer support, and in turn get some too. As we all well know, the more we talk about it, the more we heal.

Aw, you sound like you are a GREAT friend! And I agree, talking about it and trying to help others in turn, helps us.

 I agree. I hate to know that so many of us have lost out angels but I love knowing that you guys are here for me.
