Hi Barbra. This Becky Jackson. I just read your loving comment you wrote me. I want Thank you for showing interest. My son Donte was 20, he died by suicide, I found him in his closet. That’s when my world came crushing down on me it was a terrible painful ordeal. A part of me died too. This all happened on August 22,2018. And it’s like a broken record playing over and over again. Seeing what I found was horrifying no one should go through this. I miss him so much I literally hurt so bad, my sweet boy.
Wow, I did not at all think that anyone would care to read, let alone respond to, my post. I don't have anyone (other than the Lord) I can talk to to help me get through this experience. I truly cannot tell you how much your responses mean to me. I know that God will never leave my side, but knowing that there are people who I've never met that cared enough to respond to my brokenness gives me additional hope. The range and intensity of emotions I continue to feel since my father's passing on October 24, 2018 makes me wonder if this will ever get any easier.
Barbara,continuation ,still trying to navigate .I get cut off and have to start again.What I was going to add was that I go to Bereavement group and I'm unable to speak of my feelings,so through this site,it makes it easier.Family doesn't want to hear of my grief,they don't know what to say.
Barbara,Thank you also for your suggestion about the group I was asking about,I was able to figure it out after awhile and so I created it under"Words to our Loved ones",your welcome to join,unless like you said you do that on FB,I don't have FB,not familiar with it.So here I am able to have somewhat of a relief/release of my thoughts.
8 years without your son. Birthdays and Anniversaries are hard. You are an inspiration. So true yesterday is gone and tomorrow is not promised. Live for today. I hope the memories and the love you shared with your son got you through. That's all we have now. Going into my 9th year without Brittney; my only child. Still so hard to believe. Please continue to post. You inspire me to go on. Thank you.
I am truly sorry to hear of your losses. I was unable to reply Friday. I am glad you have been on this site and are comfortable with it. I will be sporadic on when I log on here. I am at work/lunch now and have a few minutes just now. I really appreciate your reaching out to me. You must be a very strong woman; I know you must grieve everyday yet must find a way to continue life. Warm regards back to you and hopefully I will be able to get into a habit of visiting this site for strength and support.
