hi Gill sorry for all this pain. it is there for all of us and it helps a little as stupid as it sounds that we are writing to people we don't know but do know... i don't think i will ever be better. i had so many plans and like you thought there would be a tomorrow. i wish there were. i want to make it better for the other children and i think since we are changed it will be better for them. the councelor said the best thing you can give your kids is happiness and truth. unfortunately i did not give my son the happiness he deserved. and i wish i could change things. please feel free to write and chat and escape by knowing others are like you unfortunately Carrie L

Im so so sorry. It is natural to feel you are at step one again because you probably are. I wish there was an easy answer as to how to survive the unimaginable...some have equated this kind of struggle to that of a holocaust survivor. Im not sure but I do know it took me a great amount of time and reading and writing until I was just spent. In the end I saw my doctor for the things I could not control. Baby steps Gill this is a very long journey.

Dear Gill,

I am so sorry for your loss, I lost my 25 year old son 11/2/2008 and I completely understand your pain. I didn't see it coming either and I struggle to keep it together daily. I have 3 other children and I know they need me but the weight of this grief is so hard to bear. I do think in time we slowly learn to live with our loss. We are changed forever, I hope in a good way. I think I have become a kinder person because I understand pain now in a very personal way and it gives me more compassion for others. So I send big hugs to you and know that you are not alone.

My son of 22 years took his own life 5 weeks ago. He was the youngest of three of the most amazing children a mother could wish for. What went wrong?, Why did this happen, Why didn't I see it coming> How am I supposed to carry on?
