I don't really cry when I see him or hear his voice anymore but I do get sad from time to time when it hits me that he's no longer here. I can finally say that I can listen to Diamonds and Pearls without having a emotional breakdown so yay me! It took me longer to heal from MJ's death so for me to start healing 5 going on 6 months since Prince's passing is a bit shocking for me since he was a part of my life since I was 15

Forever In My Life, forever in my heart. I love you Prince Rogers Nelson heart

"...[Tyka Nelson] is well aware that the wound is still raw for many fans...



...“I've had two years to deal with it,” she explains, “but there's a lot of people that have only had from April to now, so I guess I would say give it another year and a half and maybe you'll be where I'm at. I'm sorry that you're hurting”..."








Who here on prince.org feels that they are on track for the sister's 18 month prediction?



I'll go first...



I hope it doesn't sound like I'm boasting. But only a few days after April 21st {thanks to this}, my acceptance of the tragedy was where the sister says hers was when she got the call.



Going by the majority of prince.org members' interpretations of the sister's ET interview comments — {plus the thousands upon thousands of posts just like all the ones in this very thread} — I foresee {sadly for them} the sister's 18 month prediction is never gonna come to pass for 99% of the fans on prince.org.



It almost seems like people would much rather nurse their denial of the facts, than face up to the facts.



Letting go of their denial, is the only way people will ever get over Prince's death.

He was so special, connected, full of love and magic. For many of us, I feel as if he represented something divine, a direct connection to spirit. He was more than a mere mortal. He opened our hearts to love. That's why I'm having a tough time accepting, anyway. The world needs him to show us how to love.

18 months may not have the same healing result for fams as it did for Tyka. She had the benefit of being told by P himself that he was choosing to not treat his addiction/terminal illness. We, on the other hand, were blindsided by P's passing and cannot help but feel that he would still be here if someone had got him to agree to treatment. Seems so senseless.

I am still in mourning. It is getting a little better for me but like most of you I have those days. I know a lot of you all have mixed feelings about Paisley Park being opened right now, and I do understand. Personally for me I feel more compelled than ever to visit even if I have to go by myself. For me I feel if I do go it would help me more in my personal mourning process. I have always wanted to go there and it's sad it took his tragic passing to push me to go. Sux. For you all out there still mourning you do what you gotta do and feel how you gotta feel - we are all in this together. Prince was (is) a special man, artist and creator and he will never ever be forgotten! heart

Don't go by yourself; unless that's what you prefer. Somebody suggested in another thread coordinating with each other to visit PP; I know everyone on here isn't sane (or so it seems); so precautions should be taken, but I think that's a cool idea; because I don't think others outside of these fan pages are really understanding what a visit to PP would mean to us.

Grief counseling resources



"…If you are struggling and feeling like you can't go on, people do care. Take care of your responsibilities and do whatever it takes to laugh more and sleep better. You may need to quit the Org for some time



Don't hesitate to contact counseling professionals or groups in your community. If you are in crisis and considering harming yourself please call 911



Otherwise, please consider calling the National Crisis Hotline: 1 (800) 784-2433



Some of our own are still struggling to cope and they should not feel ashamed to speak up or reach out for local professional counseling services. These forums are usually a source of comfort but we have some challenges within our community. The shame and stigma others may attach to mental health may cause some to not seek the care that may make a difference. The org shouldn't be a place where people feel ashamed to speak up and ask for help…"

Sometimes I can't listen to anything...just the sounds of silence. And I don't mean Simon & Garfunkel.



Seems like I hardly put my headphones on lately and when I play Prince I get teary eyed sad



I take his music in small doses. And on the bad days I do something else. At least I know his music will always be there...



I was getting better, but the latest news about him, sort of put me back in a funk, so right now it seems like it's April all over again. I really wanted to go to Minneapolis for the tribute. I think it would have helped in my grieving process to say goodbye that way, but my sister backed out and I had no one else that was a big enough Prince fan to go take the trip with me so I'm a little depressed about that as well. For me, I need to hear his music. It makes me feel like he's alive. I started re visiting all his albums one by one since April and I'm up to Love Symbol. I'm starting to get nervous now because I can sense that when I get through them all, its going to affect me deeply. I'll have no more albums to look forward to. sad

The world changed for me on April 21, 2016..


To be honest music sounds different to me now that Prince is gone...all music eek



Yep! Both so true! I really like a lot of different music, but I can't really enjoy other music as much as I did before. I compare it to Prince's more them ever. Same with concerts. I see other acts try as much as they can, but I feel sorry for them because they don't even come close to Prince.....IMHO that is.

(intro snip)

NEW YORK (AP) — Have you ever missed someone so much that even the thought of them made you burst into tears?

Now imagine that feeling drenched in purple rain.

Nearly six months after the shocking death of Prince, some superfans are still grieving hard, creating tearful memes, snapping up "I Still Miss Prince" T-shirts featuring a despondent Charlie Brown, sharing photos and seeking solace in an explosion of fresh concert videos and unreleased music on YouTube.

They see no end in sight to their sadness, especially with regular Prince developments in the news — details on the death investigation, his house being turned into a museum and Thursday's official tribute concert in his hometown of Minneapolis among them.

Maria Newport still cries regularly over the loss. She broke up with her boyfriend soon after Prince was found dead April 21. When she heard about it, "I just started wailing. Like, fetal position, in my bed."

"As for the boyfriend, she said he didn't get it, in the raw moment or in the weeks that followed.

"He could not understand. He couldn't understand the pain," Newport said of the guy she had been seeing for about a year and thought she would marry. "He would say, 'This is the dumbest thing ever. Like, you've never met this man.'"

Wow! sad confused neutral

Same here - I dont cry every day now like I was, but there are moments it just hits me and I find the tears falling again with a "I cant believe hes not here" going through my mind. Life changed for me that day and it has affected my outlook & realisation that we are all mortal - it is very hard to explain, but there was a change in me somehow. I think this is a loss I will never stop feeling. I listen to his music and watch his videos and enjoy them until that moment when the thought "I cant believe hes not here" flashes through my mind. I cannot listen to anyone else as they are all so pale in comparison (even though I try).There is a definate hole inside me and nobody else can fill it. I know it sounds stupid as I did not know him personally and he did not know I even existed - but you cannot change how you feel, what your head says and what your heart feels is often quite different. I still have not been able to listen to the last Atlanta shows though - but feel soon it will be time.....it is just finding the right moment to sit and listen to them in private. Sorry for the long reply guys..... neutral



It's not stupid...or at least, if it is, I am stupid too! I feel the exact same way. I don't think I'll ever get over it. Found myself crying again a couple of days ago. I just bloody miss him. I actually didn't realise he was so interwoven into the fabric of who I am.
