Kasey06 Posted April 20, 2006 Report Share Posted April 20, 2006 Hey, i'm new here and I was just wondering if others had dealt with not one significant loss but several over a short period of time. My first year of college my grandfather passed away from cancer, then a year later my grandmother died unexpectedly following what was supposed to be a simple surgery. A year later my mom died unexpectedly, I went upstairs and found her on the floor, the doctors called it sudden cardiac death. Her heart just stopped and that was it, she was pronounced at our house. Then a year later my other grandmother died following years of declining health. She just died the end of this past january. My parents got divorced when I was a baby and my dad isn't really a part of my life, isn't capable of being a dad. My stepfather lives on the other side of the country and has since remarried and doesn't want to be a father, he wants to be more of a friend. I rarely hear from him. I just turned 23 and I feel so alone. I lost the 4 most important people in my life in a period of 4 years and I just don't know how to deal with it. People always say it gets easier as time goes by but for me it doesn't. My mom was only 42 years old, she's the one I am having the hardest time dealing with. We were like best friends, we were so close. Each day is so hard to get up and make myself get through, each day is another I don't get to share with my mom. She is supposed to be here. I just feel like i've lost such a huge part of myself and at times I don't even know if I do want to go on. I don't have much family left. How do you deal with such a large loss? Everyone I depended on and loved has been taken away. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
