    cancer. From initial doctor visit because he felt like he had the flu to time if death was 5 weeks I knew he was sick a few years prior but I couldn't get him to see a doctor! I feel like maybe if I pushed a little harder maybe he would still be here with me. I keep dreaming of...

    Grief is exhausting. It drains me from soul to

    toe. Stealing happiness and rest. Sucks calm from my heart. Breath from lungs. Leaving only emptiness of solitude. The echo of life once enjoyed I am now am unable to decipher. Blasts of cold and miserable -- etched with despair. Stop now. Stop please. Stop grief.
