I’d like to participate but I’m not yet intimate with grief. The next topic, definitely.
I’m thinking about it. Thank you! 🙂
Hi, my name is Joy and I am a therapist. Grief entered my life when my 23yr old son Riaz Jaye died June 7th 2018, followed by the death of my niece May 2020 and my big sister October 2020.
I like to say Riaz ‘reclaimed’ his own life after an unbearable bout of bipolar.
It’s been a journey of the family mourning, self-blame, regret, disbelief, tears, emptiness, heavy sadness … but also acceptance love, and celebration of the way my beautiful son lived his life to the full! Plus an abiding ;peace’ that he is no longer in pain and in a safe place.
Finding groups of people or individuals to talk to about death and loss, about life and living, and all the stuff in between has been really hard. No one can truly understand what I feel, and I don’t expect them too. Death and loss are personal and unique …just like a finger print.
A listening ear, an open heart and respecting my desire to express the inside pressure is all I need.
I love my boy Riaz just as much as I always have! I am relieved about this. As I find that on some days when I remember he hasn’t been uppermost in my mind that I feel guilty.
I am finding it easier to look at his baby pictures …and that’s a good sign. Thank you for reading to the end.
Hi Joy 🙂
Thank you so much for sharing, it an honour to hear about Riaz and the love you so obviously, and deeply have for him <3
Keeping you in my thoughts,
Hi! I just came across your wonderful blog. I would be willing to write an article at some point… I lost my son in November 2019 in an accident. I also started my blog. Thanks for letting us write for your blog!
Thank you! Thank you for sharing and for commenting 🙂
I was so honored when you reached out on my page and offered to post my story on your As Told By You page. The kind words and support you’ve shown have been so appreciated. I want to be able to share my story in a way that will honor my Jace in a positive light. Lately, the investigation with his death has been hard to deal with. It’s actually been hard to post on the page I started to honor his legacy. My heart goes out to everyone who goes through grief. I believe your page helps us lift some weight from our heavy hearts by allowing us to share our thoughts and feelings with what we go through.
Thank you so much Aimee for saying this 🤍 sending you a big hug x
