Francine, I make little fairies, if you will email me and let me know colors Tiffany loved, I will make you one, you can hang it in the garden, or from the rearview mirror of your car as your guardian angel, they are made from wire and embroidery thread and material, I had one in my yard for a long time, but they last longer out of the elements, would be my pleasure to make her for you.....

Dear Francine - my son Tyler, my only child, died one year ago on January 26, 2010.  If you had told me three weeks before that my son would die from a drug overdose I would have laughed.  But it happened.  And for an entire year I cried and screamed at him for not coming to us for help or telling us what was going one.  But I have learned that it was his choice to make.  It doesn't make it any better or any easier, and I still can be wracked with guilt and remorse, but it proved to me that it can happen to anyone.  I share your pain and I want to tell you that after a year it has gotten slightly better - not good, not even halfway decent, but not as totally horrifying as it was.  i pray that you will find peace and love as you walk this dark path with us.  Know that others are ahead of you and sadly, others will be following you.

JoAnn

It's been 10 months and i don't have that "it just happened" feeling any longer. It's still a huge emptyness in me and I know I'll never get over it. I'm reconciled to this pain, but it does get less painful. So I guess it took OVER 9 mos. to feel better. After dr's scrip she refilled even though she didn't want to. Candace is 30 and I didn't see her in 2 years although we spoke on the phone. She was always busy w/the girls, no time for Mom.

Maybe she'll come to you in a dream. I dream about Candace but she "came to me" when I was awake.I felt her standing behind me and she rubbed my arms up and down. I was so flabbergasted I couldn't even speak to my Baby! I hope Tiffany (nice name) does "show" herself in a way that will comfort you.Maybe if u speak aloud to her and ask her. I don't know.

Thank you for your posting today on the main website. I will take your challenge! sometimes it is all too much reading these posts.....our lives are too long to be so sad all the time....a happy thought of our children is a good way to try and start a day. Can't hurt for sure.
Great suggestion! thanks again and hugs to you and your family

Dear Francine - I lost my only child, tyler, at age 24 in January of this year. I know EXACTLY what you are going through. The first four months or so were like living an out of body experience. it was as if someone had opened up my chest and left it open. I still feel exactly as you do - I will never have a grandchild, see my son married, have someone there when I grow old. The unbelievable shock will start to wear off. But the pain and sadness will remain. It has been 9 months and I still cry often when I am alone. Certainly every day. but knowing others are experiencing the same thing is the only thing that helps at all. Do you have any other children? I know what you mean about going into stores and things like that. EVERYTHING brought pain to me in those early months, even seemingly insignificant things.

When my Mom passed away Dec 28/2004,for a LONG time after,that is what I wanted to do too-pick up the phone and call her.I would catch myself and have to remind myself suddenly that I could no longer just pick up the phone-I'm so sorry about your daughter and know that the pain must be overwhelming-please feel free to talk ANYTIME to me-I and my Family have also known TRAGIC loss.They say that the pain lessens with time-I don't know about that!Sometimes the pain has a sneaky way of hitting me like a ton of bricks!My husband works out of town right now and I'm out here in a small town feeling very lonely at times-I'll be ok ,and feel that this will be a good site to talk about my feelings,hurt and pain.But I have been known to leave a joke or two too!Will readsome stories and then I may start to feel better.Sincerly,Wendy
