Once. I was very young and I distinctly remember the feeling . . like an elevator plummeting to the basement. I didn't like it so I made sure it never happened again. Sadly, the grief that losing a beloved pet bestows on us is a heartbreak as well.
My heart was broken when my husband died 30 years ago. I am coping with a broken heart now, as my son's ex has denied us access to my dear grand daughters.
I think dealing with a broken heart takes time and the pain is like a burden that is always there but one you become used to bearing in time.
There are so many ways to have your heartbroken Annfi - you have to wonder at the inner strength some of us have to deal with it. You read about grandparents not having access to their grandchildren, and that must be so difficult for you Annfi - my heart goes out to you.
Thanks Norma. It is a huge sadness ans I was so close to my own Grandparents. My eldest grand daughter and I had a great relationship, unfortunately I haven't had the oportunity to even get to know the younger darling.
I've had my heart broken a couple of times, first it was my first love, after a couple of months he thought we would have a short break, I was devistated, we didn't end up together, looking back now I'm glad we didn't. Then another a few years later, after nearly 3 years together, he decided to break up, I didn;t take it too well, I thought I was going to die. and I lost a lot of weight, he came to see me a couple of months down the track, but I couldn't risk going through that again.
