You Are Not Alone – we have each had to face the most painful loss . . .
When your child (grandchild or adult sibling too) has died, suddenly it seems like all meaning has been drained from your life. When you wake in the morning, it’s difficult to get out of bed, much less live a “normal” life. All that was right with the world now seems wrong and you’re wondering when, or if, you’ll ever feel better. We’ve been there ourselves and understand some of the pain you are feeling right now. We are truly glad that you have found us but profoundly saddened by the reason. We know that you are trying to find your way in a bewildering experience for which no one can truly be prepared.
The Compassionate Friends Grief Support -When you suffer a loss, it’s important to understand the psychological, emotional and physical effects involved. The extremes that you’re dealing with are understandable and manageable, and there are steps you can take to begin working through the grief.
The Compassionate Friends Local Tampa Bay Chapter -We are always others ready to listen, share and offer you the emotional support you need for healing to begin. Just reach out, there’s a hand waiting. We look forward to seeing you at our meetings – held on the First Thursday of the month from 7 – 9 pm.
The Compassionate Friends Online Community -If you need support and a chapter meeting isn’t convenient, our “virtual chapters” provide a convenient forum for compassion and sharing. You’re always just a click away from a community of people who understand what you’re going through and are ready to help.
