Coping With The Help Of A Friend

Recommended Posts

I have really been struggling since Mom passed on Jan 4th this year. My family does not seem to understand my grief but I have reconnected with an old friend and he lost his Dad in December 2010. It seems we have a lot of things in common despite the passing of many years without contact. Does this seem normal? I cannot seem to connect with my family but I can with this long ago close friend?

I think this is perfectly understandable, for, whereas I have had tremendous support from my friends, I feel a close connection with a lady I have never met but have only emailed. I discovered a while back that she, too, had lost her son and so she knows exactly how I am feeling and is able to offer practical advice. Only those who have been bereaved can truly understand the pain.

Good luck.
