I lost my best friend 29 days ago. I am reluctant to post such a private story here, but I wanted to know how people here deal with serious adversity in their personal lives. I am still raw and life doesn't seem real right now.
When was the last time you faced such a life altering event and how did you move on?

I lost my mom a year ago and there's no easy way around it. You'll never really get totally over it.  Just cherish the good memories and those you still have around.  And don't be afraid to cry about it now and then.

Im sorry for your loss.

Thanks for the kind words, of course it hasn't gotten any easier in such a short time, but at least I know what to expect, the regular routine of life which was relatively easy is now more difficult, I tend to focus on the future more than normal, wishing time would move along, which of course it will. I know it will always be something that will hard to put behind me because right now I don't want to accept it or let go, and I probably never will, but I am getting used to feeling sad a lot, missing him terribly and will get used to whatever pain will follow me into the future.

Life will always be uncertain and maybe it will be easier not to expect it to ever be any less than difficult, I have a big family and have lost quite a few of them already and can't expect to be spared further loss.

Uhhhh, I don't wanna decide. When we're left, I'm right, and vice-versa. Physics. Bible.

Sorry for your loss; I don't know how that would feel because I've never lost anyone that close to me.  RIP.

Trump does not have America's interests in mind: he does not know what these are and he does not care to learn. What he cares about is his own ego. He is willing to destroy America and the world to satisfy it.

Yeah, after four years of being a non-disruptive poster on the forum, never considered a troublemaker, even someone who was liked well enough to be elected Atlasian President, Napoleon should be allowed to stay.

Don't forget to do things you enjoy. It's good to remember your friend as well, don't shy away from it. Don't forget to talk about the situation, your friend, or how you feel either. Talking about it is important.

That's really sad. I lost some loved ones earlier this year. I refuse to talk about it on a public forum, but feel free to PM me if you want to talk about it.

Winter is early this year. It is difficult to sort out my feelings, with all the 'holiday stress', brutal cold on top of dealing with loss.

Take your time.  Everyone grieves differently.  I lost my mother in law and my father this year......takes time.  There is no right or wrong way to feel.
