Bereavement Support-For when FAM need a hug

Today is one of those days I need a hug cry I get up and make my breakfast and sit with my iPad watching Prince at Coachella 2008 and end up in tears. Just every now and then grief washes over me and I cry and need a hug, I started this thread coz I would like to think I am not alone x

You are not alone. I got up this morning and was just innocently checking FB when a clip of him on Oprah came on. He was singing Do me baby/if I was your girlfriend, I smiled but as I watched my eyes misted over and by the end I was sobbing. Could definitely do with a hug today. I don't think I will ever stop missing him.

You are far from alone. It hits me in waves. Tuesday was a really bad day for me. This hurts. And it'll hurt forever. You're definitely not alone

Thanks everyone grouphug it's strange as I have watched that performance loads of times but as soon as he got the crowd chanting "war, no more" that was it, tears falling down my cheeks. Like you have all said some days are harder than others and for no obvious reason, I am so glad we have this wonderful forum to support each other hug

I read was on my porch this morning listening to the radio, and the DJ began to play Purple Rain, tears began to flow. I couldn't listen to the song without crying. My friend began to laugh at me and they said I was being silly, but it wasn't silly to me. It still hurts I am so glad I can come to this site and express my feelings, because atleast you wouldn't say I am silly for having these feelings .

Friday was a rough day for me. Had the office to myself at work and I think with no people around to distract me, my mind naturally wandered to Prince and dwelled on him there. Spent at least an hour fighting back tears--not always successfully.

.

I've worked through a LOT of grief since he died but then something triggers me and I realize I'm not done. Don't know when or if I'll ever be fully over losing him from the physical realm. But I look at it like his passing is something of a blessing, as he is truly free in the afterlife.

.

heart U Prince. Love U all 2... grouphug

You are not alone AT ALL. I am honestly the epitome of pathetic these days. This whole situation has me questioning life and the desisions I've made. I say this just to say that we are all in this and the way you feel and cope is not crazy. Sometimes it feels that way because we can't see how we are all coping. It will be okay. I hope the rest of your weekend and week gets better. It's easier to take it one day at a time. A lesson I'm also trying to learn. Thinking about what the rest of our lives will be like from here on out after this happened is too much. Just make the most of today. You have so much to offer. We have too much to give to continue being sad. It will never fully heal, but it will get better. We'll be able to enjoy things again without the memories bringing us sad tears. Give all you can while you're here... Like he did heart hug

Yea, just when you think you're okay, something pops up in the news. That's why I try to keep away from it. I even take breaks from the org now and then so I don't lose my sanity. I refuse to look at the memorial photos. sad

I don't usually talk about my grief on the org because I find it so hard, but today's been a tough one for me with the news coming from the ST sad. It's been one emotional rollercoaster since April 21, sometimes when I am watching him perform or if I am listening to his music it feels like he he is still here with us, then a moment may come when the sound of his voice, a lyric or a melody really hits me and brings me back down to earth and I feel so sad that he is gone. I'm so thankful for all of you on the org and all of the words of support for one another. grouphug

I am thankful that I can be on this forum, I am not a prolific poster but my Purple Heart is missing a big old chunk and having peeps to talk to that understand is a real support hug

Now I'm a bit extra sad because the comfort and kindness of the forum are morphing, (in some places, not everywhere) into conspiracy theories and gossip. Would love to hold on to this one thread as a safe place for just expressing sadness, and giving/receiving positive support. Cause, this is awful.

For me the further we move away from April, the sadder I feel. And I know it's a long way off, but i am dreading New Year's Eve. Just don't want to say goodbye again - feel I want to stay in 2016 just to stay close to him.
I am off to get a tattoo on Saturday, as my tribute to Prince. Funny thing is I am not a fan of tattoos as I really hate needles, but I have never felt so strongly about needing one, since Prince passed. I need it for comfort. Some days feel so alone with my grief, I know this tattoo will help me.
