I just lost my 28 yr old son in June. I am searching for comfort and advice because I feel as if I am drowning in sorrow. H ewas very close to me and often called a momma's boy. My husband also died 10 yrs ago and alot of old grief is cropping up also. I'd appreciate any suggestions from other moms or anyone with some suggestions.

Hi Lorelie,  I just wanted to tell you how very sorry I am for the loss of your son.   I lost my only son 20 months ago to complications of pneumonia & acute respiratory distress function.  Before he got this very bad cold & cough, he'd been very healthy throughout his life.  We were very close too, as you were with your son.  I've been crying a lot every day, it never stops.  When talking with my grief counselor last week and telling her some of the very funny things he said over the years, making us all laugh, she suggested I make something, anything, to somehow write these things down and have something to show people.  She said he sounds as though he was a very special person, which he was.  I'm sure your son was too.  I've never done anything like this before, but I've written in a journal about some of the fun times we've had over the course of his life, which was way too short.  In this picture, he was 33 years old!  He always looked very young for his age and, except for gaining weight in the next 5 years, he never looked or seemed any older.  Please tell us more about your son, if it makes you feel better.  I love reading about other people's children on this web site, and talking about my son, as you can see.  I don't feel quite so all alone.  Hugs, Janet

hey my name is ashley, I read your note about suicide, trust me I know your pain, ending your life will not be worth it. My 22 mo old drowned july 5,2009 and Im hurting like heck as well. The only thing that you can do is pray if you believe. I know it may seem like a waste, but trust me, If I can do it, anyone can. I do cry, and I also feel like Im losing myself, but everytime I pray I know everything is going to be alright. My son was an angel, and God called him home to be a protector for me, and his little brother that's due in December. I am only 22 years old, and I know that It's going to be a long ride for me. Just hold on, don't lose yourself in the process. When God calls you home that's when you'll be able to see your loved ones again, but you have to let God call you first. We cannot successfully do anything on our own!
