Loosing my daughter is more pain that someone should have to go through. It been 2 years and it feels like yesterday. Will my heart ever stop aching. I doubt it.

Hi June, I too lost my daughter but i lost her 10 years ago. No the pain never goes away - it just dulls ever so slightly. I miss her so much, and often dream of her only to awake to the truth that she is gone. I hold on to the hope that we will be together again when my time comes. Hang in there, Debbie.

Bless you, June.  I lost my wonderful son 4 years ago and the ache is so fierce only those who have lost children  understand.  As others have told me, you keep waking up everyday and so you have to keep going on. I ache for you and for others who come to know this pain.  Other bereaved parents so it is a hole in the heart that you work around.  Please know we all care. Peg

Thank you for the kind words. The pain IS fierce,  piercing even and all consuming. I think I will never know joy again.

June, I too am at two years and yes I find the pain continues to be fierce and overwhelming and every day I wake wishing I wouldn't.  And the best I can do is distract myself.  But since you are a "newbie" to this site, may I recommend GriefHaven's DVD Portraits of Hope?   I've watched it so many times I think I know it by heart.  But the parents on that video who share of themselves make me believe it just might be possible for this to get better....not go away, but get better.  I also met last week with a friend from my local Compassionate Friends group; he lost his daughter 12 years ago and agreed that once, he thought he would never be happy again.  But, now, even though he misses his daughter terribly, he is happy again.  Hang in there the best you can.
