6 Months of Grief Project: Day 102

No More Cake

This is Day 102 of my #6MonthsOfGrief Project. To learn more about this practice, feel free to visit Day One, where I explain this project in more detail.

My husband performed "Bear-lesque" under the name Bear Cake. I made him this shirt for one of his shows. I sleep in it most nights. It doesn't really smell like him anymore, and losing his scent is just another way he is disappearing from my life. When I tell new people in my life about who he was — I can see the incredulity on their faces. No one can believe I loved and lived with a 6'9" bear who loved pink dresses and sparkles, who could deadlift 500 lbs, and was also a Reiki Master. But he was real. He did exist. I hold on to those who knew him and loved him. They carry his memory along with me.


I am very aware that this project can bring up a lot around yours or other's grief and loss, I will always follow every post with some online grief support resources that have helped me. Please feel free to let me know of online support that you have found healing in your grief, as well:

Living with Grief Resources:

And remember, I am sharing this project on a variety of platforms, including my InstagramTwitter, & Facebook feeds, as well as my Pinterest page on Grief. I use the hashtag #6MonthsOfGrief, so it can easily be found on any platform. Please share this project with anyone you think might need it.

Thank you, and see you tomorrow.
