Thanks so much for the talk on poly and bereavement. That is the first time I’ve heard it spoken of. I lost a partner of 23 years 2 years ago. I have another partner of 7 years. People kept saying its OK cos you’ve got someone. That’s wonderful yes but that is so far from the whole story. I was really helped by this take on it. Thanks. and yes someone needs to write something more about it.
Thank you so much for your supportive comments Ann, I’m so glad the discussion about bereavement was of interest.. your comments help me too. This is so new to me.. I’m six months in now and still finding things getting worse not better as more time passes and G is still gone. I am finding myself just unable to continue life as normal. I knew it would be awful (we had a few months notice of what would happen) but I just did not realie how utterly devastating it is. We had planned to be together for the rest of our lives.. but we expected that to be far far longer. 😦
I think soon, when I feel ready, I am going ti start collecting stories from others who have experienced this, as we have, in the hope it is helpful to us and others. It would be wonderful if you would consider joining in with this, anonymously if you wish 🙂
PS for other viewers, I will be back later to give links to the references in this interview so you can see them for further information.
Also an FYI I will prepare a transcript of this interview asap for my Deaf colleagues and others, as this skype footage it is not subtitled. It came online at 24 hours notice so there was no time to prepare a transcript first.
What is ‘pan sexual’ and what is ‘gender queer’? I don’t know what those things mean. This is a very informative interview, thank you.
Hi there and thanks for asking about this.
Pansexual is a modern term which means I might be interested in partners of any gender.. a term which acknowledges that people might view themselves as having genders other than the two standard genders (male/female).
Genderqueer means I don’t identify as a man or a woman.. I’m ‘other’.
Wiki has some great entries about these issues which explain it better than I can :D..
Hope this helps 🙂
