    Hi Kara - I'm new too and understand the lonely feeling you are expressing. I lost both parents December 2015. Dad after a short battle with cancer and mom unexpectedly a week later.

    Kara--I have lost both my parents as well. I have felt like an orphan at times, although I'm in my '60s. I know that my grief is not something I will ever get over. I have learned to incorporate that loss into my life and cherish the memories. I now lead a grief support group at my church and it helps to surround yourself with others who understand this journey. I pray you will find some comfort.

    Grief does take everything from you, your energy is just drained and you can’t concentrate or make decisions. It’s been 14 months for me since my husband died. It’s getting slightly better as I can function again most days. I still have many not good days and feel drained and have lost interest in many things. It is a lonely existence, even when you have others with you. I wish you all the best. It will get easier but never back to normal.

    Thank you for sharing. I don't recall this feeling when my mam died, it was horrible. Now they are both gone it is so final. Even the family dog passed away. Thank you j

    I really feel for you. My little dog died about 2 months after my husband. Copper was older and had a good life. I think he did miss my husband a lot. He would pace back and forth in the living room. I was devastated when he died because I lost both of them so close. I kept thinking why? Then I started to believe that my dog and husband needed each other and they are together in Heaven.

    Kara - I'm new to this site. I literally just signed up minutes ago. I understand the pain and loneliness you are feeling. I lost my mom to cancer April 25th and found my dad dead in his bed unexpectedly April 28th. I dont know how I'll ever get over it. I feel like no one understands.
