I lost my Uncle suddenly last year, this day. I knew it would be a difficult day, but damn, I started crying at work. He was the family patriarch, he kept us together. I was in the middle of traveling to a job site and started sniffling and tearing up, and then I silently cried all the way to my next site: infront of my students. After work I went to a bar with my Fiance and I cried as he tried to make me feel better. I just miss my uncle so much.
Anyone else having an awful day?

meliboo : No, but I wanted to send a big hug to you. I am so sorry for the loss of your uncle. It is better to cry it out than hold in sorrow. Sad anniversaries are difficult.

*hugs* I’m so sorry you are having a rough day! Anniversaries of deaths are always hard. Sometimes you just need to cry and that’s okay! Tomorrow will be better.

So sorry Bee, I understand how you are feeling as my beloved aunt passed suddenly in 2012 and every year on May 19th I just don’t feel like myself. I miss her a lot and have been thinking of her a lot lately since I am sad she was not there when I got married a few weeks ago. It is hard but I have a feeling she is watching over me and that does comfort me in some way.. I think sometimes we need a good cry and need to be reminded of how much our loved ones matter to us and how much we miss them. The bees are always here for you though if you need to vent or be sad…

Yes, I’m having a bad day but not anything like what you’re experiencing today. Hugs to you, I’m sorry for your loss.
I’m irritated today because of a co-worker that has been a controlling bully since day one. I’ve worked there for several years putting up with her crap because it’s a secure and good paying job in a region that doesn’t have too many secure good paying jobs.
Just a dumpy day all around. I hope the rest of the week is better for you and me both.

I have the flu so, yah….the last few days have really sucked! I’m so sorry for the loss of your uncle. I am always blue right before Xmas, as I lost my Mother-In-Law on Dec 23.
No one ever loved me as much as her. She never had a harsh or unkind word to say. She never criticized me or my parenting choices….and believe me, I know how rare that is! I t sounds like your uncle was much loved and although you miss him, I am happy that you had him for the time you did, and that he was such a positive part of your life.

Astra : thank you, yes I realized that today, I needed get it out, and cry.
hikingbride : thank you! I am hoping that tomorrow will feel better!
Cheekie0077 : I have also thought about how much I will miss him on my wedding day, his wife and daughters will be there and the quartet of brothers (my dad and his bros) will be down to 3 since the last family wedding. It’s always hard knowing that he won’t be there anymore at family events. I feel that he watches us and will always be a part of us. thank you, I am really glad I found this community, everyone has been so supportive.
lori85 : Thank you!
Ashley_P : I’m sorry you’re having a bad day, and that your coworker is being a bully. Thank you for your kind words!
SmartCookie1 : I’m so sorry you have the flu! I’m terrified of getting it this season! The holidays have become the hardest lately, I am so sorry about your Mother-In-Law, she sounds wonderful.
Seriously thank you all for your kind words and sharing with me. It’s so comforting and nice to know that I’m not alone.

meliboo : yes. Awful day for me as well. I had someone close to me pass away very suddenly a couple of months ago, and while I’ve had good and bad days–today was a bad day. I broke down crying while my husband tried his best to comfort me. Sending you internet hugs and I hope your (and my) week gets better.
