I have been inside of grief since 2003, losing spouse and parents, and spiraling into and out of depression. i am being treated for it, but nothing seems to help. I have now been hit with fibromyalgia, and the pain in almost unbearable. how do we all let go of the past when we it seems we are too weak to hang on to the present? I have learned to accept and let go, but there seems to be nothing left of me to give up. i am alone and can only ask what to do?

So sorry for what you are going through. My husband and my parents are my entire life; I can't imagine loosing them. I can only suggest trying to take it one step at a time. Sometimes I have to bribe myself to get out of bed in the morning, get dressed, get off the couch, ect.

Also, reach out to the people in real life, if you can. This is the time you need them.

Wishing you much peace.

Have you tried something to fill your time?

To my husband I am wife, to my kids I am mother, but for myself I am just me.

I am sorry for you. At times of grief it is quite natural to feel the way you are. I just want to remind you that every person comes alone and leaves alone. You life is extremely precious though you probably do not feel that way now. How about committing your time for social service? You could spend time at an Orphanage helping kids who have absolutely no one for them. There are so many people in this world, who would use your help

Good luck and pl believe in your self.
