More time will be spent in pain at work, than anywhere else, and yet the work place is often the least supportive, and the unhealthiest environment for healing. Some people will always lend a supporting hand; others will never get involved. For the vast majority, they would help, if they knew how, and were empowered to do so.

Ned will share his hard earned lessons and insights, to help businesses create a culture of empathy. The result will be reduced absenteeism, increased productivity, team spirit and cohesiveness, and increased employee retention. Executives think that they don't have time to do it all. At his funeral, all the other attorneys and judges said what a kind, gentle man he was. So why was he killed? I keep thinking that it was all a mistake or a nightmare and that he is alive and well. Then I realize that I am just thinking crazy and I fall apart all over again.

Will it make you happy? Take 10 mins, quiet your mind and listen to your own body answer these questions. I wish you all the best. My mother-in-law died tragically 4 months ago and everyday seems to get worse. She had been going to the hospital to see and take care of her mom so much — who had just had a heart attack and then a blockage. She went home to shower. I will always remember her last text to me that day while I was in class.

I said I was leaving school soon and we would see her at the hospital. I called and texted as I was leaving…nothing…. A fire started in her home while she was in the shower and had no idea. I have nightmares of her trying to make it out like she did. The firefighters found her right inside the front door when they broke in the door. How scared she must have been.

Why would this happen to her? She deserved the world. She was revived 5 times from her home and to the time she died in the hospital 5 hours later. My M-I-L and I were very close. She was the person who could say the littlest thing to make me feel better about whatever redic thing it could have been. She has been in my life- was in my life — my whole life, basically.

Grief Support

I feel so lost as she was who I could talk to about my husband. We have been thru a lot. He was injured while in the military and she really helped us deal and get thru the days. His mom was who he felt he had left. I go and hide to cry. The first couple months- I did anything to keep busy and I handled all of her final arrangements.

I wanted to do it. Now that they are in school all day- I started from scratch and went back to school to get my pre-reqs. My mother-in-law was my biggest fan, biggest supporter of this. She knew what it felt like to want that and not be able to. How can I do all of that and try to get thru each day without her. Thank you for sharing. Now I am lost and lonely. It feels like I will never know happiness again.

My son 7 Just keep asking questions and sometimes feeling down.. I have a hole in my soul over the loss of my mom, but I want her memory to be actively moving me toward filling holes that I can fill. Five years back my best friend my soulmate for 25 years her thirty two year old son was killed crossing a road. My children and her children were always together. My children will never fully recover from this loss.

I had never known sadness like this. What really has helped my friend and me to cope with his tragic death is that she has reached out to so many other children in need. By helping children of fathers who have committed suicide, we have found a purpose to lift them up by sponsoring for their education. I am a hospice nurse caring for people at the end of their life cycle giving support , caring. You would think I would be better equipped with coping, but not so. I am living for Him and my God.

God will never leave me nor forsake me. It is well with my soul.

I nursed my husband for ten years with vascular dementia. I am so sorry. I have PTSD from the loss of the love of my life 20 years ago- we were so young-I blame myself for not going with him that day.

He was a great fisherman, he was very well known in Pinellas County Fl, Bahamas, Dry Tortugus and private islands owned by the rich and famous. I was by his side as much as I could handle it but it was a Sunday we had been in car n boat accidents and was always blessed he was going with the owner and an eye doctor plus they had nitrox.

I loved the family he worked for , they treated me like family. That is where I was waiting for them to come back from a dive trip.

Bad feelings started coming which happened to be the approx time my husband was left down on the 3rd dive in the middle grounds-just cuz they wanted him to get a large hogfin — duh the owner of the boat and the doc did the 3rd deep dive with nitrox- needless to say my husband blew a cerebral and pulmonary embolism. He beat them to the top. I was told I was still part of the family. I really needed them for closure. Instead they spent 3 mill on a guest house and begged me to take a couple hundred thousand for his life. I was a kid-stuck in a private room alone with the owner crying his eyes out being told I would still be part of the family and they would help me when I needed.

Then I made it a year and met someone that reminded me of my love-I met him at a psychiatrists office. We both thought we were not patients. I got married lost what widows benefits I had-and now have a permanent injunction that he is not allowed near me, obviously still not in my right mind I was diagnosed with a muscle disease and was told I would be lucky to make it to Next the temporary marriage created a wonderful sis in law of 12 years and she helped me so much mentally.

I will always love her and never thought I would lose her too. We were both experiencing the same medical problems and both diagnosed with cancer within 2 days of each other. I begged her not to get treatment 13 years of nurse-I see strong positive minds make it longer and more comfortable Being very religious and having a spouse and 3 children- they scared her they told her she would only make it 3 months without 5 with. Lots of prayers-she made it one year and the worst year I have ever seen anyone go through chemo. At one point they said things had stopped growing so instead of waiting- they tell her its best to go on very strong caustic chemo to make sure it stays gone.

I did get to see her one last time, unlike my husband. She looked so peaceful as she must have known it was finally going to be done. I touched her beautiful face-to my surprise-she opened her eyes and smiled like I remember seeing her. She was taken to a better place at 10 pm that night. God bless u all. O Jody I read your life story and it absolutely broke my heart. My prayers are with you. May the Lord fill u with his peace and may u find comfort in his rest.

It took them 25 minutes to cut him out of the car. Miraculously our7 yr old grandson was very sore, had seat belt abrasions, and pain but after almost two days of tests and observations was sent home. My son died in the ambulance. My grandson was brave but scared when Grandpa had to tell him his father was not able to survive the accident. He had just told me while I was rubbing his little hand that he was worried about his dad, and did I know where he was?

It was arranged that my husband tell him with a child grief advocate there to help. It was so hard and heartbreaking. The way his eyes looked into mine I feel like such a letdown to him because he had always been able to count on me before.

Jason named his son after his brother Freddy. There were no steps in our family. I want him, I need him. He was d wonderful, he was a handful.

My greatest regret is not praising him enough for being such a great single father. Nineteen years we buried Freddy and we have never really recovered. But I will, I have no choice. His grown daughters do need me when they hurt. And I pray we will be allowed to have Freddy visit all of us here. They lived together like two tight partners. I just need to get month old thank you cards finished to our overwhelmingly loving community. Everyone loves Jason and Freddy. I just need more than tears and breakdowns. I need to cry and son scream and pray.
