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.

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.
