Hi Lorie, I am always here, here is my email address in case you need me quicker atonsgirl@aol.com. Also, there is a number at the top of our page, it isn't a suicide hotline, but a line where somebody is always there to talk to, to listen to you, someone used it the other day and it really helped. I know the holidays must be double worse for you...and I don't want to sound like I am lecturing you, but Alcohol is a depressant, it's not going to help you, I think it's only going to make things worse... I wish I lived close, I would make you go out for walks, even if they are short walks, I would get you to focus on something, be it a book, comedy, crocheting, anything, just so you could clear your mind for a bit. I asked before if you have any support there for you? It's nice to have a shoulder to lean on, someone that will listen. I'm saying prayers for you, Jessica and Mandy, I hope that you can find support. Hugs for you and I'm keeping you in my thoughts and prayers.

Hi again, I just wanted to ask if you have any support where you are? I'm sure that if you could hook up with another parent that lives close you could go have coffee or something, just to get away from the house and be with someone that understands...I am not a very religious person, but I believe in G*D and heaven, every once in awhile I will go into a church and light a candle for our children, sit there and just think, it always makes me feel a little better when I leave, maybe it's being able to just sit somewhere close to G*D? Not sure, like I said, not very religious. I wish there was something I could do for you...

Hi Lorie, you have been on my mind, I know these holidays are extra tough if that's even possible, just please know that you can reach out here, someone is always around. {{{{{{HUGS}}}}}} sending you hugs and prayers.

Hi Lorie:

 

I can't see your profile about what happened to your girls but I can read in your message it is tearing you apart.  I lost my 17 year old baby of the family this past november he would have been 18 feb 9th and graduated in may.  Yes I have to stay up real late and fall asleep watching tv which i never could have done before because if i don't all i can see is the wreck and my baby traped in the vehicle for over 2 hours before they cut him out.

I also feel like not going on alot of times, but for some unknown reason our children was taken from this earth and we were meant to stay.  I pray for some kind of peace for you if its just a little while a day take it moment by moment thats all im doing right now.

Lorie, are you still online? Please talk ... I know how much you want to give up, believe me. I still struggle with that ... but we need to make something of their lives ... make their lives worthwhile, if only for ourselves. Drugs took my son and his sister within a month and the guilt, what-ifs, second guessing ... it all takes it's toll. This site has been such a blessing for me in such a short time and I hope it can continue to be a life line for you. Just open up to someone. God Bless You.

Hi Lorie- I just heard about your girls. I am in awe of your horrible situation. Never in a million years could I imagine something like this could happen twice (I know that is stupid since I'm sure you feel the same). I am trully sorry for your loss.

Like you - I am taking it one day at a time...I do not know how you are managing this but admire you for it. It seems that every moment I have a thought or a memory of my daughter and wonder why why why - but we will never be able to answer that question - this is a lonely journey we are on and I wouldn't wish this on anyone - keep you spirits up and remember you have friends here...LuLu

Hi Lorie thanks for writing. I know we appreciate life a lot more now. I always did. but was always stressed out. I blame myself as you do. because we are moms you know we are suppose to protect them. did you notice how so many movies portray death and them coming back. Gosh if there was only that magic lamp... I never thought this would be... i was not to smart. but ... Carrie L

Hi Lorie hope you are doing ok. Wishing you ok ness..... me too. I have been talking a lot on here and it helps and it hurts. have met a few friends who listen. and it is nice and some who are so depressed. hope you are ok. i feel as guilty as you and that is something people don't seem to talk about they say don't beat yourself up. well that is nice but when you love people and you have done wrong it is ok to feel guilty. they needed us and like ding dongs we didn't do all we could I know hindsight is better than foresight but .. it still hurts carrie L

Lorrie thanks for telling me it is so sad. I am so sad. I know god helps a lot of people but I have never been and avid church goer. Why did my son die? Yep it was a horrible accident. Your girls.... I is so sad. I am so sorry. this is all new to me. But I know it is forever. Carrie L

Gosh Lorie I am so sorry I feel for you. I can see why you feel bad and guilty. I do also. Kids are hard to raise now a days. I wasn't raising mine that is why i feel bad. But like his brother said he was a grown man. He wasn't he had a lot of pain. like your girls. Life is what you make it and a lot of it is what we teach them and do with them and nurturing and spoiling. I was more harsh. i was having a hard time with life myself. I wish I had spoiled him. Perhaps he would know i loved him like I did. I think his dad spoiled him. well not spoiled but took care of him and gave him money. but he needed more. I don't think he had a girlfriend and that bothered him. I could have told him everyday how much I loved him but I didn't I love them more than life and I know you do also. Please try to forgive yourself I need to forgive myself. But it is hard when we can't go directly to them and love them. and save their lives. Your story is heartrenching. I am so sorry I am here with tears for you and me and our beautiful children. lets talk more. Carrie L

Hi Lorie I have talked to you before. Perhaps it is because we are in different placed we moved too. i feel guilty for moving. my son needed me. i hopeyou are ok. i had a hard day. my spouse says this site is sad. well sadness is the note of the day when the mind keeps the pain alive. well you think a thought and then you think they are gone and gone is forever it is not funny. carrie L

Lorie, never apologize for not contacting me. I understand that sometimes just breathing is all we can accomplish in a day. If and when you are ready, please call and we can talk. In the meantime, allow yourself time to settle in Florida and know that you have a friend here in Philadelphia who is praying for peace for you. Kathy

Lorie, I am so sorry for this, your two girls. I know you loved them very, very much. I truly believe these children land right in the hand of God where he can heal their pain and keep them safe for you. Hang in there, dear girl.
