Anyone there that has lost a special needs child?

Needed: Friends that understand my feelings and someone to just listen at times with my missing of my son, as I wrote my first comment to myself, sad huh... I understand losing a child period is AWFUL for any parent to experience, but to have that feeling of unconditional love, unconditional need, and unconditional life experiences to battle together closer than any spouses could handle together, now it seems the ONLY thing in my life that was given to me unconditionally has been took away from me and I can't seem to find that kind of fulfillment in ANYTHING i try to do to fill that empy spot ever works... can anyone help with relating to me, or can anyone at all help me out far as feeling of joy and life back into my body? I know its been 8 yrs since his passing but its been the darkest dreariest dullest 8 years I've ever experienced, I keep thinking after 8 years i should be "OVER IT" or "MOVED ON" but it don't work that way for me, Am i going crazy or just seeking the "SELF PITY" for myself?....Rita, better known as KURT'S MOM, when my name couldn't been remembered even when he was alive on earth.......

Hi Rita,
My name is Barbara and on Feb 19,2009 I lost my 21 yr old nephew Justin. Your story has touched me in many ways. I feel your pain and the way you expressed your feelings is the same feelings I hear from my Mom who helped my brother raise Justin. Justin was born weighing 2 lbs. 2 ozs. He over came that hurdle, then at the age of 16 he had a stroke which left him with many disabilities. He needed constant supervision but regardless of his disabilities, he touched many lives in many ways. Justin loved everyone and no one was a stranger to him. His death was sudden and unexpected. The pain seems to get stronger. I know Justin has already made friends with Kurt. My prayers are with you and your family.
