Title: Bereavement
Post by: Ant on October 31, 2006, 11:19:09 pm
Have you bereaved a lost one recently? have you ever lost a close one in your life? This is a serious topic os don't be dickheads please :)

The only bereavements i have had were my two Grandads, i didn't particularly know them very well. One died when i was 5 and the other when i was 7, I didn't cry for either of them though, which kinda worries me but at the same time makes me think, would they want me to cry over them?

I lost my Grandad to cancer.. oohh.. er.. I cant remember, about 2 years ago now.
I didnt cry either.
At that time I was already going through a bit of a psychotic spell and I didnt really know what the fuck I was doing. The concept of death suddenly so real to me really spun me out of control, and I lost quite a few friends over it because I was acting so fucked up. I guess looking back now I realise how insensitive they were, seeing as I'd just lost a pretty close relative.
Anyway, it was a bad time for me, and talking about it kinda brings back a few painful memories.

I guess I'm gonna have another of those "bad times" soon though. I fear my Nan is on the way out too. She's becoming worse and worse, missing out weekly Sunday roasts because she's too ill to travel a mere 10 metres to her car and too weak to drive.
I dont know what I'm doing though; I guess I'm trying to distance myself from her because I know if I get too attached then It'll really hurt me when she passes away, but I know I'll regret distancing myself from her because I'll think that I never really knew her. :(

You have a dilemma indeed there, it can be said in most cases where feelings are concerned e.g. Relationships where you have doubts etc.

Death does seem to make people react differenlty, some people tend to just distance themselves so much from everyone, some start appreciating what they have and spend as much time as possible with other people.

I did want to keep this to humans but i will say about my little Dog, she died a mere 1 1/2 years old from a weakened liver, when she was put down i spent 3 days at my mate's house crying and watching 24 trying to keep my mind off her.

I lost my grandfather to heart condition and other things quite a few years back...10 or so, I think... it's kinda scary to think of how long it's been since I last spent time with this kind and quiet man. All my memories of him are dwindling day by day, which makes me sad. He was a machinist on a cargo ship during WW2, and I'd have given a lot to have spoken of these things with him, but unfortunately I wasn't old enough to appreciate the living history books old people tend to be.

A few years later, I lost my cousin due to a drug overdose. We were not especially close, but it still shocked me when I heard it.

My Grandad also died of cancer about 6 years ago. However, I did cry. I still miss him, he spoilt me to death. (No pun intended)

My Grandad was also a kind man. I don't think he worked IIRC, although, I do remember him working at a local football club at one point.

I too lost a dog, Bess was her name. She was the only dog I actually remember having, after Sooty died when I was 3, thankfully I dont remember, since he got ran over by a car. Luckily, Bess passed away peacefully in her sleep, in her usual sleeping position at the bottom of the stairs.

Bess died about a year ago or so. She used to be my rock, I used to talk to her and she kept me company. The house has felt lonely since she passed away, without the barking whenever the doorbell rings, without a dog creeping at my feet whenever I speak in negative tones, it just feels empty. Everything in this house feels empty.
There's still some of her fur on the edges of the carpet where she used to sleep, and it feels strange to walk over the same patch of carpet where she died. Just talking about this brings so many bad memories flushing back, having to carry her to the back yard and burying her...

Meh. I dont wanna talk anymore about it. :(

I've lost two grandgrandmothers, a grandfather, my dog, three hamsters, three birds and a fish.

I knew my dog best, so I miss her once in a while, but I tend to accept death and do not grieve. Of course, I've lost noone really close to me, so that's probably incorrect, but I have never cried of sorrow. At least not real sorrow. I feel fictional sorrow far stronger.

I still feel sorry for those talking deers that died in a snowy cave in Terranigma.

Indeed it was a strong scene, I admit I shed a tear or two. The music was the main factor, but the way you interacted with the character socially felt almost real, even if it was only in text, that was as good as it got back then.

They built you up to the point where you're really starting to kinda love the Aerith character, then they kill her off :(

I never really liked her, So I didn't mind that she died.

Hmm, My grandad and both grandmas have died, also a mate killed him self about 9 months ago.

In 2005 i lost 4 people, 3 friends and 1 relative, 4 friends really, as my family are so close.

The first was a friend of my dads and the family, he used to come stay with us on work shifts on from scotland, when they both worked together over there. He got struck with cancer, had it for a few years, fought it, but in the end the struggle was too heavy and he died. Was a train wreck of a time, but there wasnt enough time to catch up with life when the next event happened.

A friend of mine and my sisters, thomas devlin, only a teenager, was stabbed to death. He and another friend of mine were walkin home from the shop after gettin some munch just, and two guys out of nowhere began following them and chasing them, they caught thomas and stabbed him in the back, i think they punctured his lung; they tried saving him but by the time he was at hostpital he was already gone. Now everybody knows you need time to grieve from one death, but then another one happens so suddenly, what do you do.

Another friend of mine, who lived down the road, was on a cruise with his wife when he had a heart attack and passed away instantly, such freak sudden deaths. He was an amazing guy, of course.. all these people were to me.

Finally my closest uncle had a heart attack, suddenly, my cousin tried to save him with CPR but it was too late, he was gone. And with all this my 2004 wasnt the best either, i lost my other uncle to leukemia, so really ive seen more death in the last year and a bit than i ever want to see again. The more people die, the easier it gets to handle it? wrong. so wrong, itll only make it worse if you try to grip it up inside in my opinion, i tried.. and i had a terrible breakdown, which in all honesty i've only really seen the recovery from this year. thank god.


But yeah, deaths a heavy thing.. grieving isn't an option though. just keep that in mind.

A long time ago my mom lost a cousin in Virginia; had a wife and kids, and just went out to his backyard and blew his brains out. I lost my great-grandmother not too long after, but I was so young it never really impacted me. I remember my mom crying on both occasions, and just watching her and wondering what was going on. My first few real memories, actually.

First time I cried over a death was when I found out my hamster had died. Then again when the second died (they lived in the same container). After that I never cried. I felt sad, but I never cried. We had given away my favorite cat a few years earlier because my mother had allergies, and I bawled for hours over that, but when I found out she had died years later, I only felt some sadness, and missed her.

Just a month ago my great-aunt died. This was my first real experience with someone dying and being coherent enough to realize it. I was never very close to her; it was odd hearing all about her life at the funeral and it all being new to me. It was a strange feeling knowing I'd never see her again, and that I'll never get the chance to know her, now. She's just... gone.

I have had several occasions dealing with people close to me who almost died, by their own account. I those were very painful to me, knowing that they were on the brink of completely disappearing from my life forever, and feeling almost helpless about it. One can only talk in circles so much until feeling like no more can be done.

I was literally holding my grandmother's hand when she passed away about five years ago.

I didn't really cry for her, I knew it was a gentle passing.  How can you be in pain when you're on a morphine drip? She just took a deep breath, let out some tears and that was it.  It took all of 3 seconds.

Lost a cousin to suicide.  He took his father's gun and went to the beach and shot himself..

But what hit me hard was loosing a 26 year old friend to complications of a heart transplant just a few years ago.

and then there were various pets in my life.


*sings a bit of flaming lips*

And instead of saying all of your goodbyes - let them know
You realize that life goes fast
It's hard to make the good things last
You realize the sun doesn't go down
It's just an illusion caused by the world spinning round

I've only really lost one person close to me. That was one of my great grandmothers. Our house (that is, my parents house) was built on her land, so she lived as our neighbour for the first maybe seven or eight years of my life. Then, she moved to a home for the elderly, half a kilometer away. This happened to be the neighbour of one of my best friends. So I visited her, well, almost daily. Often, when my mother was at work, or sleeping (she was a nurse, and when she worked night shifts, she slept far out into the day), I used to go down to her after school. Or she would come up to us and watch us. I think she died when I was 12, though I'm actually not completely sure. I remember my mother more or less telling me that she would probably die soon, and suggested that I'd go down and visit her. I remember that day. She was bedridden, but still completely clear of mind. I just sat there and talked with her, and in hindsight, I'm really happy I did. I think that if I hadn't, I would feel that I lacked closure. Especially as when she was admitted to the hospital later that week, I was not allowed to go visit her (or, well, my mother told me that she didn't want me to do so. Apparantly, her condition had deterioated a lot over the last couple of days).

Then, that saturday, I think, four days after I had visited her, she died. Me and my siblings were gathered with our dad in our living room. The phone rang, and our dad answered. I already knew what the call was about. She was dead.

I didn't actually cry. Not there and then, at least. I was prepared, I knew that she did not have much time left when last I met her. Still, it stung to hear my father say the words. Though I hardly remember anything but still scenes of her anymore, thinking of it all still make me sad. I still miss her, in many ways.

Fallout is right. Keep this thread clean and respect deceased and their memory. Speaking about sorrow and how one can go over it is perfectly fine, being it via insanity, community or other methods. But let's not let this thread drift too far to random off-topicness or semi-topic details. I think that this thread deserves to be here at General and deserves to be open.

Nothing bad has happened yet and I hope it stays that way - I don't want bereavement because this thread.

Eep. My dead pets...

- Cat that ran out in the street and got hit by a car (parents told me it ran away). It hated me, though, so I didn't mind much. >>
- My favorite cat, choked on a hairball and died after we had given it away because my mom was allergic to fur. I cried when we gave her away. Kind of shitty end for her, I think.
- My dog Max, who was allergic to something in our house (some kind of spore?). He slowly started losing his fur, and we had to put him down. =/
- 6 dwarf hamsters. 3 sets of two. First set was two males, bought at different times, before anyone had told us they couldn't be together. They killed each other.
Second was a male and a female, but the female was much bigger than the male, and beat him up constantly. Eventually she killed (...and ate..) him, and then she died of a tumor. Served her right, methinks.  :P
The last two, two girls, were absolutely wonderful. Given to me by my aunt because she couldn't keep them. One got a cold, though, and died. =/ I remember holding her, and it was just so pitiful. Barely moved, just... slept. Then went to sleep one day, and just didn't wake up.
The last one, thankfully, died in peace. She was just old, and went in her sleep about a year and a half after the other one.

Right now I'm taking care of two more dwarves (two females... my sister's. We're renovating her tiny little room, so they have to be kept in mine) and they're the most energetic little hamsters I've ever seen. They're always so excited when I'm near their cage; they jump up on the glass and scratch at it, then run around on the wheel (both of them try to run on it at the same time) then run around their little houses... I'm going to miss them.  :-\

I'm sorry, Harv. But damn. Although i know, if you're going to get small pets like, ffs DWARF HAMSTERS. Hell yes you can expect them to die pretty soon if you're not going to watch out. Even without accidents their have not a very long life expectancy.

Its just not a good idea. Cat's are REALLY fragile,but they tend to be smart so that's a given. But, cat's don't listen. And cat's aren't smarter than humans, so if a human tells a DOG, for instance to do something, they do it. And that's why dogs live longer.

Yeah, its offtopic. But all im saying is, if you're not good dealing with losses, either don't get a pet or get one wich will live longer.

Not sure if that was directed at me? I never said I was tremendously sad over the hamsters or anything. Obviously I cried when the dog died, because he was my first pet. When the cat I loved died, that was years after we gave it away, so I was kind of oblivious to it by then.

But yeah, unless you buy something that lives forever (parrot, tortoise, koi, whatever), death is just part of the package. A sad part... but a part.

Cats and dogs live pretty much about as long in my experience. Of our 3 cats, 2 have lived to well past 10 years, and one of those are still alive. The third died early from some disease. Dogs have a natural life expectancy of not more than 14 years, barring accidents, if I remember correctly, and cats slightly longer. Cats are more prone to accidents, though, as they usually run free, while dogs are most often leashed, or at least walked by their owner.

Well, that's death for you. It can come at the worst possible times.  :P All I can hope is that when I die, it's either really cool, or peaceful.

Cool like someone putting a potato in the exhaust of a car as a prank, and it shooting out and killing you? Thats how I want to die.

Cool like dying by execution in a third-world country at 81 years old.

Second time this went off-topic. This was supposed to be about bereavement, no chit-chat. That was not the case so this one locked.
