Hi John, I am so sorry for the loss of Rob, We are all here to listen, any time you have anything you want to talk about or share about Rob. I just passed 2 years, It is a difficult time, I think that the first year you are in shock, it has hit me more this second year, I do as you do and try to help others, it gives me a reason for living. Please know that you are welcome here, share your experiences if you feel comfortable with that. many hugs and prayers. Tami
I hope that you are well. I just finished a book (Heaven is for real) you have to get it. It has helped me more than anything. It only took me about two hours to read. I know you will love it! Maybe you could have Johnny read it too.
Bobby's mom--Robby was 24. We had legal troubles for years from a "he said-she said" incident for 3+ years. He had headaches and ulcers from the stress. Some feelgood doctor gave him methadone and he had a bad reaction to it. If you send me your email to email@example.com, I will send you our story. It is too bid for this forum, or my mind to handle.
Robbys dad, if you don't mind me asking how old was your son? My Bobby was 24 and was hit by a car while working in Florida. He left me a beautiful grandson who will probably be leaving me soon, I can't stand the thought of it. I live in Utah so I immediatly flew to Florida Bobby lived 4 days but never woke up. It is so comforting to hear from people who know how horrible I feel. Bobbys mom
I, too, believe that the "shine" is gone for me. With the lost of my treasured son on 9/4/09, nothing will ever be the same. People do avoid "us" and maybe we would have once upon a time as well. I don't know. I do know that even with a husband I love very much and three other children I adore, I view the world very differently now and the "shine" is gone forever. That's I feel tonight. You are thought of tonight as well. Chad's mom ... who was so lucky to have him and who learned so much from him. Lisa
Dr. John, I can't believe that someone I don't even know could write exactly what is in what is left of my heart. Your words could not have been more perfect for how someone feels who has lost a child. But I guess I do know you and you me better than anyone in my family, you have to have experienced it to know it. I do not have a spouse to share my pain or understand it. I certainly hope that you do. I will forever keep your words, thank you for saying just what I felt but could not put into words. You will be in my prayers.... Bobbys mom
