another description of grief
« on: July 17, 2016, 04:20:24 PM »
At almost 2 years out, I am constantly thinking of all the different ways "grief" feels and is defined. I finally was able to articulate another description: Grief is a feeling that you desperately want to climb out of your skin that never really goes away.

I used to just think of grief as just sadness, but at least with grief over a spouse (and I suspect the same for a child) it is a hundred other feelings.

That is a good description. It really does impact us in so many ways, many of which we never see coming before they hit us.

Hugs to you...
Without you, Baby, I'm not me.

I so get this. Yesterday was one those painfully uncomfortable days where I just wanted out of my skin and couldn't escape it. A couple drinks and a long overdue cry last night relieved the pressure.
Mrs.C, You have been my Sweetheart, Best Friend and Love since 1987. You will be my Wife forever and ever and ever. Love Always, Mr. C

Yes there are more than hundred ways to describe grief. Thank you for putting to words your feelings.
Pain of grief is realizing your reality is worse than your nightmares. 
I wish I cold wake up to my love laying next to me and all of this be a nightmare.
