Tina's husband died 4 months ago. A medical death without prior health warning.
Tina enrolled in our Journey Support Group where she not only found a safe place to tell her story but also listen and learn through the stories of others in our circle group. Group by group, story by story, Tina has begun to restore some sense of normal, even though this is a "new normal" for Tina and her son.
Tina's husband and son had planned spring trip to several colleges.
Now, with sudden income loss and unplanned expenses of a funeral, those college plans are not as secure as before her husband's death.
Tina is going to make it through 2013 with a new sense of Hope as she and their son enter 2014.
What Tina has learned is none of do this grief journey alone.
What Tina has learned is friends and family can say hurtful things, even when trying to be helpful.
What Tina has learned is she now shares a story with so many other women (& men).
What Tina has learned is this journey she did not ask for will be yrs of facing new challenges, learning and sharing coping skills that work for her, and know others are with her all the way.
Tina's story of loss, adjustment , and healing is similar to other women and men enrolled in our support groups.
