Grief Archives

I’ve had so many people stopping by to read one of my grief posts and then staying to read more, that I’m making it easy for everyone. I set up a separate page for all the articles I posted about grief. You can find them here:  Archives — Grief Posts.

These are not the only writing about grief that I did. As you can see from the list, I hardly posted anything at all those first few months, but I still wrote. I was so lost, so lonely, so sick with grief and bewildered by all I was experiencing, that the only way I could try to make sense of it all was to put my feelings into words. Whether I was writing letters to Jeff (my deceased life mate/soul mate) or simply pouring out my feelings in a journal, it helped me feel close to him, as if, once again, I was talking things over with him.  Those were such private moments, meant only for me (and him) that I never intended making any of it public, but when I found out how much it helps the bereft to hear about someone else’s grief and understand that their anguish is normal, I published them in my book Grief: The Great Yearning.

If you know someone who is grieving for a husband or a mother or a child, I hope you will consider gifting them with a copy, or at least sending them the link to my grief posts.  Thank you.

    What a great idea, Pat. I was hoping you would do this. And I can’t recommend your book highly enough…to anyone whether or not they are grieving as it will help people to comprehend the pain of grief.

      I don’t know why I didn’t think of making a separate listing sooner. But at least it’s done now.

      It was interesting going through all the titles and seeing how many times I made a new discovery that I had already made. Just went to show me how circular grief is. No stages, but the same damn thoughts and feelings and discoveries over and over and over again.

      You’re welcome. I wish I could do more, but unfortunately, grief is something only the individual can do.

        One of many things now i must learn to do alone. Marcus told me often “you are not alone. You will never be alone again”. Oh what i wouldn’t give to hear his voice or touch him one more time :(:(

        Your blog does make me feel not so alone.
