Wobble Over Wednesday Week 43.. Depression is setting in..I can't believe he's actually gone..

Hi everyone..
I really had no intentions of making the WOW post tonight.. But the depression is really setting in.. It's so hard to see the empty hospital bed.. knowing he's actually gone.. Gotta stop myself before the tears start pouring again...

I literally have nothing keeping my mind off of what happened.. Which is what brought my to actually write this post.. I thought maybe for a brief moment I could keep my head clear..

In the next day or 2.. I plan on sharing a few personal thoughts with all of you, and letting you all know about grandpas final moments.. I just can't bring myself to talk about it right now. I am really trying to stay strong (Well, I'm acting/pretending to be strong for everyone) but really.. I don't think I'm okay. I keep wanting to call someone, just to spill my guts, but the only people who I have to call are grandpa's friends, and when I tell them anything, they'll start to cry, and then I start to cry again. It's so hard.

I have to get some rest.. So-

On to Wobble Over Wednesday..

  1. I'm sorry. I wish I could give you a great big hug.

  2. Sweetie, I am so sorry that you are grieving right now. It is really hard to lose someone that you love. Remember his love for you and that he would want you to have a happy life. In the days ahead, try to find some peace and happiness because that is what he would want you to do. Do it FOR him as a testament to the power of his love in your life. His love will always be with you.

  12. aw 'big hugs' no amount of words is going to help but know that we are all here for you.

  13. I am sorry for your loss.

    I, too, have suffered through the death of too many people.

    What you are feeling is perfectly normal. It is part of the grieving cycle.

    For the first year after my Sister was killed in a car accident, I thought of nothing else. She was on my mind constantly.

    However, as time goes on, the wound does not heal but it does get covered over. Sometimes you scratch the surface and the tears start flowing, but, most of the time, you are the happy, well adjusted human being that you always were.

    Do not be afraid of your memories. They are a blessing to have and, in time, when you think of him, you will smile instead of crying. I know, I have been there and still have my moments.

    If you need anything at all, please do not hesitate to ask.

    It is our responsibility to help others in their time of need just as we need to be helped.

    Keep your chin up.

  14. So sorry for your loss. It seemed to happen so fast. Hugs to you and your family

  15. *hugs*

    Maybe you could just "spill your guts" out on paper since speaking them to others is too hard right now.

    When my friend first passed away her mother went to support group meetings. They were free and I think at either the church or town hall. They had therapists come in and talk to everyone. Just being with other people who had also lost a close relative made her feel less alone and gave her a place to vent besides her own family. I believe the meetings were once or twice a week, and you could join in at any time and sort of come and go as you pleased.

  16. Sweetie, I'm so sorry. I know exactly what you mean by not being able to talk without crying. A full year after my dad died, we dedicated a new pavilion at his church in his honor and my mom wanted me to give a short speech. I thought I could do it, but as soon as I opened my mouth, my heart climbed right into my throat and the tears started pouring.

    When you are sad, remind yourself that he is out of pain. Think about a time that he made you laugh or that you made him laugh. Even if you're crying, if you can smile through the tears, it helps. Remind yourself that it is okay to smile and laugh. Sometimes it feels wrong to be happy when someone you love is gone, but your Grandpa doesn't want you to be depressed. You know that, right? He would want you to remember him with love and smiles and for you to go on with your life always doing what you know would make him proud and happy.
