I have been having bad days also.  Didnt sleep good last night I think I saw every hour on the hour.  I only work until noon today so I plan to come home and take a nap, It is pretty bad when you are planning a nap when you havent even gotten out of bed!!!  I am glad I am not the only one who loses stuff, I have replied to a couple of people in depth and than lost it.  Did you ever check out the link I have on my blog.  The song brings tears to my eyes, but it also comforts me.

My father keeps telling me to take it one day at a time, to be thankful for anything that makes me smile, even if it's just for a second and to not push more than needed.  Easier said than done.  My job is EXTREME stress, but it is a diversion.  At first I felt guilty about letting things take my mind off of Tim, it was like I was letting go.  I put a picture of him inside my ID case I wear for work, and he's always hanging across my neck everyday. It's a reminder to everyone, myself included, that a part of me is gone, but still in my heart.  Carry something your sin cherished with you, a picture, a momento, just something to know a part of him is with you.

I dont believe this I just typed you this whole thing and I lost it!!  Just par for the course of my day it has been a rough one.  I hope your son can make it through this okay, it is so hard for us, loosing a big brother and I am sure a best friend...We are all just hurting.  My son and I talk alot, or should I say "he says I miss him so much"  and my reply is usually I know jon, I do too!!  and yes my grandson is a blessing, but how dose a 8 year old deal with, his daddy being gone. and a wonderful daddy!!  I would like to re write some of the things I lost. I will try to do that tomarrow after I get out of work, I am thankful I have a part time job, enough work to keep me busy but not to much so I have my space

Hi Shannon, just to let you know.  I'm here, any time you need to talk.  The holiday will be hard on you.  You always remember dates like that.  My dad passed away on my youngest son's birthday and my Mom was buried on Valentine's Day.  Every year I think about that.  My oldest son, Jimmy, that recently left us, was December 7.  I took all my decorations down, put everything away.  There was no Christmas in my house in 2010.  Tomorrow is his birthday.  I'm going to release some baloons.  I also had an experience like you did during the night.  I hope mine was real,too.  I believe it was.    Paula

Dear Shannon,You just saved me when I got your e-mail, thank you so much for taking me the right way and understanding my meaning! I am suffering horribly and count the moments till I can join all those loved ones of mine. But I also know that God must have a plan for each of us. That plan is to go on with courage and honor our loved ones. Together in unity there is strength. We will help each other with our words, prayers and thoughts just as our loved ones are now being helped on the other side!

Love to you Dear Shannon, your friend Shari

Shannon ...... your Tommy will always be in your heart but with him no longer able to communicate freely with you, with you not being able to hold him, your heart has that void. I have a place for my wife and my two sons. My eldest son is no longer with us and that void is so fresh. I miss my son so much but I really can't wait for that "hole" to heal over.

Hi Sharon,

I just wanted to let you know that you are an inspiration to me.  You have helped me open my mind and heart.  My daughter's death is something I still cannot believe, even though her 1 year anniversary is coming up March 26th.  I wonder if I'll always grieve for her.  It is still so difficult. I haven't been able to feel her presence.

Shannon I understand your pain I was not with my Andy when he took his last breath but I talked to him minutes before he died, and I live 800 miles away so I was on the phone with my brother while the emergency personal was working on him, you can't imagine how helpless I felt, I will never get over not being there for him..........

Thank you for visiting my page.  Donny was a sweetheart, always was.  There is a picture of have of him about 4 yrs old and I wish I could scan it and put it on here.  Just was the sweetest little boy.

Life just got pretty hard for him later with his marriage falling apart.  His girls really miss him bad.  So young to lose their Dad.  Their mother isn't much of a mother so that is even sadder.  But they seem to be dealing with their life as it is now.  The oldest one still loves here in CA with my daughter but the other two had to move with their mother to Idaho.  What a brutal year they have had.

Our family was completey shattered by Donny's passing.

Again....thanks for your support and good comments.  You know we all need them!!

Susan

Shannon, my son passed away on 17 NOV 10. My wife and I both returned to work 1FEB 11. My wife teaches 8th grade math and I am a letter carrier with the USPS. We both took FMLA and were paid for our time off. Take off as much time as you need. My son's funeral was the day before Thanksgiving. We both had trouble dealing with the holidays. My wife, son and I flew to FL on Christmas morning. Christmas was a very hard holiday to face. We coped and got through January. I grief all day long for my son. I have some trouble concentrating on my job but I manage to make it through each day. I've been back to work for about 5 weeks and my family's going back down to FL for spring break at the end of the month. I can't give you all the details on my son's death. Some day I'll give you his full story. Just letting you know that you need to take the time off from work that you need. God bless you and help you through this grieving process.

wow.  you have a hard choice to make.  i am not sure i could go work in a building full of children.  i seem to be fine with teenagers but have a hard time being around the little ones for some reason.  this is just with other peoples kids that visit or we go to visit.  i take of people with mental and physical disabilities and that is hard for me to do right now.  dr has me working part time for a few weeks to ease back into it.  hard to take care of others when you cant take of yourself well.  if you have to go back try part time first if you are able.  go on a day your not working to get a feel for how it might be.  this is so dam hard for all of us.

Did you see the front line show on the state of our medical examiners and coroners. It is a joke. I know that you are right it was  an accident. What the heck are they claiming and why? Maybe they get federal funding if it is another type who knows why they just B.S. on the medical exam. A parent usually knows especially if they were living with their child.

dear shannon

take your time getting back into the real world.  take one step at a time. my son passed 1 yr 6 mo ago, and i am still taking baby steps .. i am far from getting fully functionable ... i have no ambition really,  i do certain things, because i have to ... as far as having real joy, smiles,   its not there.  i may smile, but inside, it hurts to smile.  hugs and blessings,  valerie
