Thanks for your post Kay....I totally agree that this website is so important to all of us. Life is so hard now to find any joy in our hearts. I know I am fortunate to have these 3 wonderful grand children and being able to spend time with them. But sadness is always around the corner. One is going to get engaged soon and it just makes me so sad that her father is not here experiencing her new happiness. He would really like this young man, they would have gotten along quite well.
Hello Kay....just read your post regarding your son Jerry. I too lost my adult son (39) to AOD. I am 16 months out.....I too do not understand why the Dr.'s give such strong drugs to people who have an addiction to them. My son was on pain meds and anit-depression meds. We lost our son on Christmas day 2009.
In reading your post I guess I will continue to miss him even as the years go on and on. The pain in the heart will always be there. I try to think of positive ways to honor his memory but "living in this horror" is a good way to describe our lives as we know it. Very sad....
My heart goes out to you as you experienced what our family has in losing a young healthy young man. Hopefully our sons are in peace and comfort in the heavens above.
On 6-22-02,my son Jerry died of an overdose of precription drugs.He was my first born son.He had just turned 30.He suffered for many years with bipolar disorder.He spent years of Hospitals and mental help groups.Onthat Sat. he came out of the hospital,stable they say.The doctor gave him a 30 day supply of sleeping pills because he could not sleep.Who gives a suicidal person sleeping pills. He came home and swallowed them all.I found him unresponsive on his bed.He died on route to the hospital.He was such a kind and funny guy.I miss him as much today as then.God bless us all as we live with this horror of living without our children. Keep smiling Jerry.I love you so much.Jerry has 2 brothers,1sister,2 nephews,1 niece,and his cat Sonny, who miss him so much.Thanks for reading about Jerry.This keeps their memory alive.....Kay,Jerrys mom.
Kay, Thank you for the encouraging words. It means so much to me to receive a response back. It is very hard having the grandsons because now one of them are walking and my son did not have a chance to see him take his first good steps. I am grateful to God that He allowed the 34 yrs that I had with my son, alot of good memories to cherise. It is so un-natural for a parent to bury their child.I will also be praying for you also. God Bless, Desiree
Happy Easter My sweet son.I miss you everyday that I wake up.May you and all the other angels that are with you be living in peace and love until we see you all again some day.Love Mom. 5/23/72-6/22/02
