About Me:
I recently lost a loved one to a four year battle with cancer. After talking with her on her death bed, she told me, "I'm not ready to go yet." However, she passed away this morning despite her will to live. Although I was raised Catholic, the teachings of the church never resonated with me. Instead, I found agnosticism much more plausible, and it worked for me - until now. I've come to the conclusion that I would be crazy to believe in a god who would allow such tragedies to happen or god who permits such incomprehensible depths of pain. All the prayers in the world, and all for nothing. The god I once believed in was nothing more than wishful thinking.
Fortunately I found this site, and I am hoping to find support for those who are grieving - without the preachy religious nonsense.

Hello. I'm new to this site, and I am trying to upload a profile picture. For some reason it posted to the main photo collection. If anyone could help me with this, it would be much appreciated. Thanks!
