On this website, I get so many emails from people who are grieving. The are either grieving because they have just lost a child or loved one from the disease of addiction, or they are grieving– going through the storm of a loved ones addiction. Those who have not went through the enormous pain and anguish of watching a loved one die a slow death of addiction, cannot fully understand the depth of it. There is a lot of suffering! The one addicted is suffering, the parent trying to get help for their child is suffering, the siblings, the spouses and the friends. I have experienced both ends of this and I know I am touching on a subject many are afflicted with. I do understand!
For those who are experiencing grief right now, I want to recommend Grief classes that are very helpful. They are called Griefshare. The website is: www.Griefshare.org
It is my prayer that those who are experiencing Grief, will not suffer alone and that they will find comfort and healing. ~Sharon Blair
David, a warrior and king, pours out his emotions to God throughout the Psalms:
“I am bowed down and brought very low; all day long I go about mourning. . . . I am feeble and utterly crushed; I groan in anguish of heart. . . . For I am about to fall, and my pain is ever with me” (Psalm 38:6, 8, 17).
