Complete shock on Thursday evening.

.

Really sad and depressed Friday and Saturday, and early Sunday. And the beginnings of acceptance since then, I think.

.

I'm 15 years younger than Prince, but with his lifestyle and physical condition, I never thought I'd outlive him.

Complete denial Thursday

Depression Friday, Sat, Sunday

First 'normal' day Monday

Tuesday morning tears again and anger has just progressed since then. I am angry at him mostly. For not staying in hospital on the Friday he made an emergency landing and then making such light of everything the following weekend.

.

Yes. I am really angry right now and it feels real good swearing about it.

Depression. I feel worse today following a better day yesterday. A deep sadness and sense of loss. Have low energy and don't want to talk to people in daily life. Just want to be in quiet places.

I'm kind of with you on this one. I just wish I didn't have to be around anyone. I get annoyed when people start telling me things they've heard. People who never once gave 1 thought to who this man was or even knew he did other songs beside "Purple Rain" or "Little Red Corvette". I don't like all the gossip and all the news stories. I know the media is doing their job, but they are dissecting every little thing and so much of it could be total falsities! I'm tired of hearing things. I don't want people who didn't love him to talk about him. I'm feeling protective over him. Like my natural maternal instincts are just coming out and I want to shield his memory from the harsh world. I know, I know.....I always come off sounding crazy because how can I feel motherly toward a man who is older than I am??!? I know it sounds ridiculous. But as I would want to shield my very own children fron nonsensical rumors and hurt, I just want to shield his legacy from it too. I know in the physical sense he is no longer here, but in the spiritual world, he shall remain inside my heart forever and I just want people who don't truly care about his everything to stop talking about him! I'm not watching the news. Can't listen to the radio. Play his CDs in the car, but they're still making me cry. I'm just reading what you guys post here. I take my comfort in sharing with you guys because I know you guys are with me 100%. Knowing you all are here feeling these crazy emotions does give me comfort. Just knowing I'm not alone.

exactly how i feel, i couldn't have put it better myself and i am very thankful 4 all of u and will never forget how close everyone has managed 2 become and let their inner self so exposed and open and honest i really think Prince would be impressed with us and say,"now, this is what i'm talking about!"

As long as we keep our luv strong we'll never shed no tears

Depression. I can't make it quite to anger when i don't know what to be angry about. The speculations? There are too many of them and none could be true, definitely not all of them, they are just shadows. So I'm stuck here. Waiting.

Definitely going back and forth from anger, depression and denial. Just can't get over why he was left alone if he was unresponsive only 6 days prior. It doesn't make sense to me.

Really angry. The corporate record business is killing all of our heros. We almost have noone left. You have to take other jobs just to scrape by with a band.

The government needs to subsidize art.

Big Pharma is my major enemy right now. Quit killing our geniuses!

All you others say Hell Yea!! woot!

Sadness at first, but when i play his songs i have to smile, because his music to me means happiness and sorry but i don't know how to say this, but it's like the sun in a rainy day. It just stronger than any other feeling.

I'd like to add frustration as well. Its frustrating to have to wait until the autopsy reports/tests are final so that we can finally get some answers.

I will forever love and miss you...my sweet Prince.

Yes I'm definitely more in the anger phase now. This is bullshit and we shouldn't have lost our Prince. It's just fucked up and so wrong. There must have been a way to prevent it and he was just stolen from us.

Yes I've never been the most mentally stable and well-adjusted person to begin with and this has definitely pushed me even farther off center. I'm just trying to focus on work, but the world seems very different now..and much darker than before.

I'm bouncing between denial and anger. I guess that I just feel that the world has been robbed.

I know, he blessed us for years and he gave us so much. But still...

Yes exactly...we were robbed, and more importantly Prince was robbed of his golden years of retiring and enjoying all the love fans were giving him, etc, etc.

Anger. I angry at certain people about it (anger typically involves blaming, accusations and causing people to avoid you).

I know when my husband died I was blaming medical staff, his sister etc...Prince concert was the first time I was happy after that. He played a song I requested as an encore, very poignant lyrics to my situation. My hubby died the previous June and left me with 2 babies so I know you know the song.

I'm angry at Tom Sullivan on talk radio making P the poster child of opioid addiction, and a lot of the media messing the story up and not even blaming what I'm blaming. Or seeing what I'm seeing.

Angry angry.

I'm in acceptance, with healthy grief for the loss coming in waves when I watch his videos or share the grieving experience through the org or #prince twitter feed.

Anger for me as well, though when I listened to "Way Back Home" this morning I felt somewhat at peace. When it was over, I was angry again because I know he'll never release another new song. Maybe I should just put his music on repeat, nonstop and allow all of the old memories to take over.

Denial.. I sometimes I think it is one of Prince's jokes, as he played so many. How does a young,active, drug free person just go away?

Bargaining..Can't talk about this one

Depressed. Just dragging around, sad, sad, sad. Can't get passed it. I need closure. People gathered together to say an offficial goodbye. I am glad you all are all here, but I feel so alone.

I am bouncing all around. I know I want make it to the last 2 till we get final word. I pray that I reach the stage that trc1 is at. Saturday I was straight crazy and I had to pray hard and a peace come over me. But I have still had periods of crying. It's hard but God is still good!!!!

Beautiful, Loved and Blessed

Thank You Prince

I think I'm randomly bouncing between all of the stages, except acceptance, that's for sure. As I said in previous threads, it feels like the death of a close relative

like a dad or a brother, not even a teacher, a freaking Brother.

I've been having trouble to eat, sleep and concentrate, yesterday I wasn't able to go to work or to school.

I hope this goes away soon, I don't want to keep thinking about him in such a sad way.

Thank you guys, because it's good to know I'm not the only one who has all these feelings.


At first I was angry with him, for not taking care of himself. Especially because the day before, I was on the thread about him being sick and taking a rest. His response was to give an extra concert at Paisley Park. That made me so angry.

Then I sunk in a numbness.

And I want to deny it. Just pretend it did not happen.


Now I'm depressed, numb, dissociated.

I don't understand the bargaining phase. What is there to bargain about?

99% of my posts are ironic. Maybe this post sides with the other 1%.
