It doesn’t help when you fight the pain for a 1-2 years before you seek help like I did. Caused more damage that I will ever know. Great to hear that its not so acute, that is a huge milestone. One thing that has helped me and I have spoken about it in my book, find a cause and throw yourself into it. Spend time volunteering helping others will help you. It will keep your mind occupied without HAVING to get up and go to work everyday. Find the one thing that your daughter Jeanne would have had been passionate about and do it to honor her. It helps.

Keeping fighting brother.

I was hoping people would like it. I was having a hard time sitting down and writing content without sounding like I’ve already written about it. For some reason this is easier. I keep the iPhone tripod in my car and when I am driving and a topic/idea pops in my head I just pull over and record it while its top of mind.

Peace.

I helps me knowing it helps others. It gives me a purpose. It has to be on your own time and way, but the biggest thing is, you must do it. Running from it and ignoring it doesn’t end well for anyone. Wishing you continued growth on you journey my friend.

Where are you located in NZ? I would love to come there and speak to a group of dads.

Spend as much time as you need here on this site.

Comment on “Depression, Trauma, and Grief, Oh My” – Video Blog – Kelly Farley by Kelly Farley https://grievingdads.com/blog/2017/09/05/depression-trauma-and-grief-oh-my-video-blog-kelly-farley/#comment-3149 Sat, 30 Sep 2017 23:07:46 +0000 https://grievingdads.com/?p=5023#comment-3149 Mike – Thanks for sharing you thoughts. It is a shitty fraternity, but I am happy to know I am not alone. Keep going on the book when you are ready to start it up again. 7 months is early, there is a long road a head of you but keep moving forward brother. Keep surrounding yourself with others that understand.

Peace.

It’s been awhile, I am glad you stop by. It does help know we are not alone, but your right, it doesn’t take away the pain. We will never be the same, in some ways that a good thing and others its terrible.

Wishing you peace.

Comment on “People Suck” by Kelly Farley by Kelly Farley https://grievingdads.com/blog/2017/09/26/people-suck-by-kelly-farley/#comment-3147 Sat, 30 Sep 2017 20:38:40 +0000 https://grievingdads.com/?p=5035#comment-3147 Yes you are my friend. No doubt in my mind. Just because our children are no longer here with us doesn’t mean our love and responsibilities as a father have ended. The work I do to help others is to honor my children. I feel like it is something I must do, plus it helps me tremendously.

Peace.

Although I am a believer, I do not believe it is part of “his” plan. I believe it is just life and sometimes it just sucks. Things happen to everyone. Somethings are worse than others.

Peace.
