One year

Well yesterday was the magic one year .. My son died on April 26, 2009. He was 40 years old...died in his sleep..There have been times when I wasn't sure I'd make it to another day..never actually suicidal, just extremely distraught..Some friends have stuck around, some not. I have a daughter and two grandchildren, so for now they are my reason to get up and face the world each day. I know I will "adjust" to his being gone in "time", but it won't be for a while yet, and I don't even pretend that I'm "OK"...

Hi SA.It's been 2 yrs. How are you?  I'm surprised.  Rich has been really helping me.  Now I'd like to try to help others.

Thank you so much! But my son was not married to this girl. He was gonna ask her to marry him on her 21st Birthday which would about 2 weeks after his death. She is such a beautiful little girl 3 years old. And she loves her Nana very much. But as of today it has been 2 months since the death of my son. I have no clue how to grieve with all  the drama everyone seems to be causing. Makes me hurt even more. and 2 months without Natalia and Ryan is totally heartbreaking!

Thank you, I have just been like a robot for this year, no way to explain.  I was certainly surprised by my anger at times toward God and things. But know in my heart Chace would want better for me. I havent been able to discuss very much with others, we are usually positive people, I guess I don't want to bring others down.

I have not been on in a while. I tried to start a discussion, but had no luck ! Just wanted to say that I am thinking of everybody . I send you all my love and prayers. Living without my son has been very painful, as I am sure you all agree. Life continues to be a challenge , but seemed like everything would be ok cause we had our children. I miss hearing mom and I am still sad for what I lost  and that I will not be a grandmom and watch my son get married ... But am grateful for the years we had, just so hard. I pray for all those who have lost a child daily! May Gid bless our broken hearts!!

Thank you S A, I am so not handling this at all. My daughter was a junior in college ,deans list,honor student, rotc cadet, campus ambassador and on september 9th 2011 fell dead in her dorm room with some type of brain infection and so this leaves me in total state of shock and pain. Not sure where one day starts and the other ends.

For SA
Hi, my name is Janie, from Wisconsin. Someplace on this site, I read you lost your son to alcohol. Would you mind sharing your loss with me? How old was you son, tell me about him. I too lost my son to alcohol, advanced liver cirrosis. He was 32, died
January 9, 2008. I hope we can share our ups and downs with eachother. Janie

it makes me mad that people think you should be over it by now. the pain will never go away as far as i am concerned. yes the pain will get easier to deal with over time but it will never go away. my step aunt lost her son 7 years ago and she sill has a lot of pain but she can deal with day to day life now. so she is my inspiration becuase i know if she got through it so can i. the only difference is her son had a bicycle accident and my son probably died in a way by his own hand even though i know he did not do it on purpose. plus having people like you to talk to on here really helps.
