    I started this journey that no one wants to be on 4 months ago. At that time I thought there would never be a day I would ever laugh again. I thought my days would forever be filled with tears. The pain was so sharp. Thank you to this site for letting me see a glimpse of happiness in myself. I’m starting to feel okay. Whatever okay is. I miss her everyday. But the pain is getting easier. To whoever is in that place they feel like they won’t make it out of the pain. You will. At some point it will begin to hurt less. I didn’t believe it when anyone told me that. I’m thankful for smiling a little more and hurting a little less. Thank you to this site.

    skies24, glad to hear you're feeling better, and I agree this site is very helpful. When it comes to loss, experience is a teacher. I thought I understood great loss, a significant other or child, little did I know my understanding was limited. It does get better, although at times still a bit of a roller-coaster.
