1  Primary Message Board / Primary Board / When will the pain end? on: July 19, 2012, 07:09:15 PM
Unfortunately the healing never reaches an end point.  It will always be an ever present part of who you are.   You will just learn to cope with the pain.  My youngest son died in 2002 as a result of a car accident. His older brother died after a battle with testicular canceer on March 10, 2012.  Not only am I grieving for my oldest son, but the pain from his younger brother's death has returned as if it just happened.  My neighbor lost her son in 1972 and I recently asked her when the pain will end.  She is 85 yrs old and her response was that she didn't know, it hadn't ended yet; almost 40 years later.  Beyond Endurance is an excellent book to read.  It will help you understand the grief path.  Wish I had known about the book 10 years ago. The book doesn't lessen the grief, it just helps me understand that my feelings are similar to others who have lost a child.
My days are painful and nights are sleepless.  I prefer isolation from others who can't possibly understand the depths of my grief.  My fear is that it will be a very long time before the grief lessens.
