Babs55 Posted June 8, 2006 Report Share Posted June 8, 2006 (edited) For those who don't know from another post....I lost my mom a few months ago. I am trying to deal with the grief from this but lately I am feeling completely overwhelmed by "grief"! Past and present!I don't really want to bring this up here...but I don't know what else to do. Grief doesn't come from just losing a loved one to death, it can also come from the death of a marriage, etc. Four years ago my marriage of 23 years ended in "death" because of abuse. After doing everything humanly and spiritually possible to save this marriage...I learned two very important things: One, you can't change anyone but yourself and two, it takes two to make a marriage..not one.I thought I had grieved the death of this marriage but now with my mom's death..all the pain and grief from this "death" is hitting me full force once again too. It's like everything just happened today all over again. The pain is overwhelming and it's affecting my relationship in my new marriage. My husband never expected to have to deal with these things in our first year of marriage...and neither did I....but I can't make them go away or pretend here. Help!Is this normal...reliving past pain and grief along with the present?Babs Edited June 8, 2006 by Babs55 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
