    Here for you if you need anything. Agree with others on getting counseling. I didn’t do it when I lost my wife, and it was a big mistake.

    Nothing I can say will probably help, but stay stay strong. Find comfort with others you love and with others that love her. Take the positive gifts you and her have and share them with others.

    It’s going to take a long time, but you’ll heal.

    Ts&Ps coming at you and please vent as much as needed. If posting here helps then post away brother.

    Haven’t read the rest of the thread but yeah I would highly recommend going to see a therapist to help maintain your mental health throughout the next few months. This can’t be easy to deal with and could really mess you up.

    This too - you should be able to find one by doing a search for grief counseling, or if you can’t, go see your doctor & he/she can probably direct you to someone.

    thank you fellas. She is staying up here in tampa for comfort care for the time being. And the hospital is imploring all of us to do counseling asap, which I agree with. Crazy how life always throws you fucking curveballs when you are least expecting them. As I've been told by several doctors here at the hospital the last 12 hours, anything concerning the brain stem is bad, it controls your primal functions (breathing, heart beat, brain function, etc..)

    I appreciate all of you and we've gone through a lot on this board over the past decade, the T's and P's are very welcomed at a time like this. Without getting into specifics or anything, her family is well taken care of monetarily so I'm not asking for a GoFundMe or anything even though I value you guys thinking of that. This is extremely hard to deal with Im just being honest. As I was telling someone in a PM earlier, a couple months ago I was on Cloud 9 thinking everything was set up and her bday is April 10th which Is obviously coming up and was going to "ask her"...…… her mom is more torn up than I am, she cried on my shoulder for 45 mins last night

    Anyways, once again I really appreciate it, truly I do

    This is truly terrible...I wish the right words existed that could ease your pain. A lot of people are going to need you and you're going to need to be strong in times where you're going to be weak. Be there for them, but make sure you take care of yourself.

    If you ever need to talk or break down to someone outside of your normal circle, I hope this thread shows you that you have a lot of people willing to be there for you.

    Later on you should check out grief therapy. It will really help you after times like these. It did for me. If you want to talk to someone without a connection to them, send me a msg and I'll help out as much as possible.

    I’m sitting here tearing up in my office with a heavy heart for you and your loved ones Sterling A I hope you all find peace and comfort. Your situation gives me perspective on my own life, all that I take for granted, and all the things I have to be grateful for.

    I just thought I’d share a quote about life and love that hit me hard recently and I’ve tried to incorporate into my daily life...

    '”Everyone longs to be loved. And the greatest thing we can do is to let people know that they are loved and capable of loving.'’ -Mr. Rodgers

    I hope you find some solace in knowing that you shared love with your fiancé and made her time here better. I’m so sorry brother. You are loved and capable of loving.

    There are no words that will make you hurt less so I won’t try. I can only say is i am sorry and cherish the memories you have with her. Life is short and fragile all we have is those we love we need to appreciate the time we have.

    Easier said than done obviously, never take for granted the time you have with the people you love and cherish the most. I'm living proof of this right now at this time.

    A therapist who wants to meet with us individually just came to speak to us for 8-10 minutes in the room and she had a particular saying that is resonating:

    Life is a precious gift - a gift we often take for granted until it is threatened

    I've known her and her family for over 15 years now, she is an only child

    I’m so sorry man. I watched my best friend lose both his parents and his older brother within the span of two years. The only things I can suggest is not being shy about talking to anyone about what you’re feeling. Seek out a therapist and see them often. Lean on your friends.

    At the end of the day, be thankful for all the time you had with her. Your life is exponentially better for meeting her.
