Quote rediculous: most of you know that I lost two children in a drowning accident, it was over 30 years ago, but I still feel that loss and hurt every day and I know I always will. I joined a grief group after a while, and one of the members who had lost her 14 year old daughter, began to steal things, small items at first but more valuable things as time went on. The others in the group including myself had no idea she was doing this until she got caught. Her rational was that because something so precious was taken from her, she was compensating for that by taken others things. This is not as uncommon as some may thing. This lady needed deeper grief counseling than our group could offer and she did get help and is fine today. She just found an outlet for her grief in the wrong way. She can't believe she once did this. I actually represented her at court and she agreed to pay the merchants she had stolen from for most of the merchandise. Most of it she returned as she hadn't even opened the packages etc. Price tags still on everything. Doing that and getting counseling was all that was required of her by the court, because of her circumstances. She remembered taking the items, but said she felt as though she was in a trance, Sharon makes me thing of that lady, who is a very strong individual, but her extreme grief buckled her. After the death of a child marriages break up, alcoholism abounds and it is a very rough road to travel. The stress is over whelmning and it doesn't go away as fast as some people on here thinks it should.Just giving my perception of what could be wrong with Sharon. Who knows what the writers will come up with.
I too,suffered unbearable loss at 39 years old with five children, I lost my mother in law a woman I had known from the time I was a girl of 18 we were very close 6 months later my husband then 6 months later my mother.
I was out of control, lot's of men nobody knew, my family never even suspected, finally a friend found out,at first I denied everything but she never let up and finally I got help.
Thirty years have gone by and I have nightmares,when I wake up I thank God for that very good friend.
My kids you see grew up and went to universities they have worked and traveled all over the world,I owe it all to a higher power but if I had not had that one good friend my life could have taken a different path.
Loss can be overwhelming.JMHO
