Finding support through your grief...

I find myself feeling less and less like I fit in to the mainstream world. After my daughter died, my reality capsized. I now look at life through a dark set of glasses. Itís not rosy. Itís not happy. Itís not balanced.
Does Our Child Need Grief Support?
When Bella came home one day and told me that no one at her school had ever had a sister or brother die and that no one knew how she felt, my radar went on high. Was she telling us she felt alone? Did she need to get help with a therapist or a counselor? What is a moment of feeling bad for herself?
How people can say the wrong thing, and how you deal with it.

Reaching Out for Support
Am I on the ďrightĒ track with my grieving process or am I so far gone in my thinking that I will never survive this? Do others feel the same or am I alone in my grief? Should I reach out for support?
