When the pain doesn’t stop
Losing someone you love can be devastating. It can leave a void that feels like it will never be filled. At best, we learn to live with the loss, but sometimes it just seems impossible to cope with the finality of it all. We long to see them again, to hear their voice or feel their comforting arms around us. Sometimes it seems that the whole world has forgotten about our loved one, but we are still feeling the pain. We need to talk about them, to hold on to their memory, but when we try, we sense that the people around us are willing us to ‘move on’.
‘Moving on’ is just what we don’t want to do. We just want them back in our life.
In these strange times, our grief is often made worse because we are unable to be with our loved one in those final, precious moments, to let them know they are loved and to ease their passing. We may even have been denied the chance to say that final farewell at a funeral.

Thanks for having patience with me. It certainly helped as I was able to talk about Myra. A lot of people don’t want to know, so I keep it to myself. But you let me talk and that helped enormously. I will never forget her and no doubt will have moments of sadness but because of your help, I’m more at ease than ever. I can’t thank you enough and I have to say you were absolutely brilliant. You let me chat about Myra, maybe sometimes I went on too long but I just had to let it all out. I really will miss my hourly chats, but like all good things they must come to an end. So Marilyn, thank you once again and please keep up the fantastic work you do. So I say cheerio now and good luck,
