Re: When it Rains it Pours

My god, unclemick--I am so sorry for yet another loss in your life. *Take care of yourself. *When the shock wears off, please go for some help if the grieving and the stress of all these calamities are too much for you.

Unclemick.....

I'm so sorry to hear about another loss in your life.
I agree with flipstress, grief counseling might be a god send.

Unclemick

I can't express how sorry I am, this is definately more than one person should have to endure.

Sorry Again
Yet another loss is almost unbelieveable.
Grief counseling is a good thing if you need it.
take care

I am so sorry. I can't believe how much that you have been through. I agree with the counseling and surround yourself with your remaining loved ones, if possible. You need lots of hugs.

UncleMick,

I too am so sorry to hear about your loss. It is as if this topic was started especially for you. I don't have anything new to add, but I just couldn't let it go without telling you that I'm thinking of you. Please take care of yourself.

Re: When it Rains it Pours

UncleMick,

I am so sorry about your daughter. What a shock that must have been for you. Grief compounds with each new death we experience and despite your "tough guy" appearance grief is a major issue to cope with; especially when you have experienced so many losses in so short a time.

From one who has been there....one book that helped me the most was "The Grief Recovery Handbook" you can find it on Amazon or any other major book store. Read it...read it again and then do the exercises. Trust me on this one..it will help. I do a lot of discussion with others in grief and many have also found the book to be a help to them.

Again, I am so very sorry for your loss. My thoughts are with you and your family during this very difficult time.

Re: When it Rains it Pours

Still have the grief recovery handbook and call line contacts from last november.

Will be out of pocket for a few days - I will be assisting her son/DIL as to all the arrangements.

The out of towners will be staying here as since remodeling - the extra space is here - also for the wake - even though she claimed she was "Coonass" not Irish.

No heh heh heh - this time. Thanks everyone.

My condolences, Uncle. You've had a hell of a time lately.

If you can stand a little joshing, maybe you should consider changing your handle. If not, don't click on that link and consider yourself hugged.

I'm so sorry to hear about your loss UM. *Not really what else to say.

I have to agree with the others, please make sure you take care of yourself.

Re: When it Rains it Pours

Unclemick, my heart goes out to you....
I don't know what to say, but I couldn't say nothing at all.
My sincere condolences to you and your family.....
There has been so much already, but you will weather this
storm as well, and come out on the other side...
Then we will see the "heh heh" again....
